Lent Devotional April 2: Letting God
And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. Romans 5:5
A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Walk to Emmaus. I didn’t expect to get as much out of it as I did. One surprise was that I learned a lot about myself — I learned that I don’t have to be a perfect wife, mother, friend, or Christian. God has shown me that He is the only perfect being and that I will never be perfect and that’s ok and to just keep following in his footsteps.
He took away all my anxiety and angst about everything that was on my mind going into it. I know now that whenever I have feelings of doubt, frustrations or anything else, I just pray for God to take those feelings away or to help me deal with them, and He does.
I really think during that weekend I let the Holy Spirit into my heart, and I’m going to keep Him there forever.
Prayer: God, thank you for all that you are teaching me. As you continue to show me more about myself, please show me more of you! I love that you are with me every day. Amen.
