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 to her from those passages. Tiffany is sharing her Lenten reflections here and hopes to inspire our readers to join in her journey.
Rest. When was the last time you truly rested? You didn’t worry, look at your phone, rush somewhere or do anything other than rest? It feels weird. Our world moves quickly, and things change in a second. We say we wish we weren’t as busy, but for many of us during the pandemic, it was almost painful to not have something to do…somewhere to be.
God tells us to rest. To take a day and set it aside for Him…for us to rest. It is hard to hear God when you are worn out…running around. What if you are so tired, busy, worn out and stressed that you are missing God there beside you….Urging you to stop? Take time this Lenten season to rest….to really rest.
