2/22/12 - Welcome to Lent 2012!

From today's first reading: Joel 2:12-13

Even now, says the LORD,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the LORD, your God.
For gracious and merciful is he,
slow to anger, rich in kindness,
and relenting in punishment.


We all fall away and need .... NEED to return to the Lord. All of us.

He wants us to come to Him, and He wants our full hearts. He doesn't want us just to be conscious of Him. He doesn't just want us to say "I believe", without changing our hearts. He wants us to rend our hearts and deliver them to Him.

Best wishes for a fruitful lent!
