a slow journey through lent: day 2
Today we will sit with the scripture for the week, Psalm 25:1-9. Before beginning to read - take at least three deep breaths. Acknowledge the presence of God, Jesus, Holy Spirit who are ever-present with you. Ask for light or guidance on what to receive today.
Read through this passage three times SLOWLY.
(If you're in a space where you can read it out loud, do that at least once.)
Pause for a time between readings.
Is there a word, phrase, image or feeling that you notice, stands out or that is being brought forth to you? Take that with you through the day and see what unfolds.
At the end of the day take a moment to reflect over your day with what God brought to mind and respond with a prayer of gratitude.
O Lord, I give my life to you. I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others.
Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you. Remember, O Lord, your compassion and unfailing love, which you have shown from long ages past. Do not remember the rebellious sins of my youth. Remember me in the light of your unfailing love, for you are merciful, O Lord.
The Lord is good and does what is right; he shows the proper path to those who go astray. He leads the humble in doing right, teaching them his way.
