Do You Hear What I Hear?

The Season of Lent

Day 2:  What is my offering today for Lent?  Quietness!  I have been focusing on one scripture for a year now and with my little hyper personaility, it has been a hard verse to get under my belt.
Isaiah 30:15 – This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:  “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is you strength, but you would have none of it.
Today I will stay in my sanctuary.  I will not have a Plan.  I will focus on hearing the voice of My Abba.
First, I must quiet all the other voices down.  I have such a need or desire to connect with my daugher, mom and friends.  I will make one more call and then the Adventure of Quietness.

The Quiet Adventure:  This produced a challenge as I became fiesty, restless, sleepy but finally a calm settled in .  I am reading 24 Hours that Changed the World by Adam Hamilton.  In the quietness I realized:
God watched His Son die for ME!             
 Am I confused by Jesus’ Words?     
       No Other Way – Jesus’ Blood
He Knows I Will Fail  - even when I don’t know!          
How Have I Betrayed Him?
 I was a Slave to Sin and Death                         
Jesus looks past my betrayals,  sins, & failures & calls me Friend. 
 Jesus needed Friends and  I  Need Friends – for this Journey
      The Mount of Olives and thinking
           Of What Jesus Experienced
