Lent readings

For those who would like to read Lent readings, but haven’t got around to finding some Scripture recommendations… here are some for you. I have been reading them “Lectio Divina” style – not studying, but reading them slowly, and meditating on phrases that jump out at me, praying through them, and journaling what God is sharing with me. It has been a wonderful time of renewal for me, and today…

A place to record my journey of creating a life of balance. First as God's child and bride, "wifing", mothering, homeschooling, leading worship, neighboring, mentoring, teaching piano, and the myriad of other things that clamor for my time and energy. And a place to put pictures to show my family whom I miss incredibly, and who live so very far away from us here in Alaska!! View all posts by reneegrace

    Thanks, Renee! Wow, an uninterupted hour with God! Very cool! I could really use one of those!

    Thanks for the reminder. I learned about Lectio Divinia last September and was very touched by some experiences with it. I find it hard to implement with a busy life, but I still want to. Lent is a good time to try to set aside some extra time and perhaps I will start with your SCriptures here.
