The First Day of Lent 2016

Lent Scriptures

I can’t believe Lent and Easter come so early this yer! I would love for you to join me as we WRITE and PRAY God’s Word through the days leading up to our Lord’s resurrection.

From the book of Matthew I have put together a schedule of verses, with a few grace days added in as well. Traditionally, Lent has been the 40 days (not counting Sundays) leading up to Easter. And Easter comes on March 27th this year!

Why Write the Word?

I have had the question of WHY we would want to write the Word of God.

Here are my best thoughts on that:

Take a quick moment and think about the things you write down throughout your day. Now, you may be more digital than I am, but I still WRITE in an actual paper planner, I write down my grocery list, notes to my kids, in my prayer journal…you get the idea.

But, why do we write things down? 

We write things down that we want to remember.

Why wouldn’t we want to write down the most important Words there are?

His Word is life to us — write it down!

His Word is a treasure — treat it as such!

His Word is comfort to us — allow Him to comfort you as you write.

His Word is conviction to us through His Holy Spirit — soften your heart as you write. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life as you write and pray His Word.
