a slow journey through lent: day 29
Today we will sit with the scripture for the week, Psalm 119:9-16. 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.
How can a young person stay pure?
By obeying your word.
I have tried hard to find you—
don’t let me wander from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart,
that I might not sin against you.
I praise you, O Lord;
teach me your decrees.
I have recited aloud
all the regulations you have given us.
I have rejoiced in your laws
as much as in riches.
I will study your commandments
and reflect on your ways.
I will delight in your decrees
and not forget your word.
