Pastor Tiffany Hollums decided that each day during Lent, she would choose a word to prayerfully reflect upon. A volunteer suggested reading the lectionary texts and then choosing a word that stood out from those passages. She is sharing those reflections here and hopes to inspire our readers to join in her journey.
Isaiah 65: 17
“17 For I am about to create new heavens
and a new earth;
the former things shall not be remembered
or come to mind.”
Lord, in our lives, help us to move past who we were to who you are creating us to be in Christ.
Lord, in this world, help us to be about your work-creating and bringing healing and life to broken places.
Lord, in your church, may your love and grace flow through our doors to the world in need around us.
Not what we would want done or for our glory, but for Yours, Lord. On earth as it is in heaven.
Something new, Lord, something new.
