Lent Reflections Day 8: Keep
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 51:1-3; 2
Psalm 121: 7-8.
“7 The Lord will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8 The Lord will keep
your going out and your coming in
from this time on and forevermore.”
How many times do we try to rush ahead of God? We worry about all the possible things that could go wrong or that we might fail….when God is right there with us-keeping us. Holding us. Steadying us. If we can stop, breathe, and let God be our helper. To lean into His keeping. To try to let down our protective guards and allow God, our Father, to take care of us. To give us what we need. To keep us.
