"SLOW DOWN"
 
It is hard to believe that we are just two weeks away from the beginning of Lent.  For many of us, this is a time of deep spiritual introspection.  It is a season of the year in which we are encouraged to slow down, to think about what is most important in our life, to allow God to show us where we fall short, and to heal the areas of our life that are broken.  Jesus went to the cross on our behalf so we would experience freedom from the bondage that often exists in our life as a result of things we have done or things that others have done against us.  Unfortunately, many of us don’t experience the benefit of this special season of introspection because we are too busy rushing here and there. 
 
As we quickly approach Lent, I want to invite you to slow down!  Take these next couple of weeks to get your plan together for how you might slow down and listen to God.  I would like to share with you a resource I recently found.  It is a guided meditation that comes via email every single day.  It is an opportunity to take a little less than 20 minutes per day to sit in a comfy chair, relax and breathe, and listen to someone read a passage of scripture upon which we are given an opportunity to reflect.  Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?? 
 
Click here to enjoy one of the sessions I have received recently.   It focuses on Matthew 16:24, giving us the opportunity to reflect on abandoning everything to come and follow Jesus, to empty ourselves of that which consumes our life, and to be filled with the Living Water and the Bread of Life.  If you like the experience, feel free to subscribe to this free resource. 
 
So, what do you think?  Are you ready to slow down and spend a little time with God??  Savor each moment!!
