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.
Lord, give us sight to truly see what we are missing. How many of us think that we see, when in reality, we have scales over our eyes like Saul? What are the things we are missing, Lord? And are we humble enough to admit we couldn’t see? Lord, open our hearts and our eyes to see all you are doing-even those things we don’t quite understand. And when we can’t see, Lord, help us to realize that you are in control. You are the one who truly sees. Give us that kind of sight, oh Lord.
