As we continue the ||40days|| journey through Lent, this week we will focus on the theme: ‘turn’.
Last week, we looked at acknowledging things in our lives: sin, fears, brokenness, and longings. Radical honesty to acknowledge things in our lives is the first step of the journey, but it does not stop there.
The next step is to turn from those things that we acknowledge in some way. To turn means to see something, and willfully move in a different direction. In our ||40days|| journey, we are talking about turning from sin and other things so that we might turn back to God. As we read in the book of Lamentations:
Let us examine our ways and test them,
and let us return to the LORD. (Lamentations 3:40)
Here at the beginning of the week, ask God to speak to you and strengthen you to turn fully to Him in your everyday life.
