We are currently in the season we call Lent. It's a time of preparing our hearts for Easter, and it's a good time to make a change in your life. As Ann Voskamp put it, "Lent isn’t about forfeiting as much as it’s about formation." This Lent season (and hopefully the days, weeks and months following), I want to spend more time in prayer, and I'd like to invite you to be a part of it. Sundays on Wild Olive will (at least until Easter) be prayer posts. Please feel free to leave a comment with any prayer requests you have.
Today is Palm Sunday. It's the day that we celebrate when Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem. And it's had me thinking. I've been thinking about welcoming Jesus. We aren't always good at that. I mean, it's not too difficult welcome Him on Sunday mornings or special days, but what about the rest of the time?
I listened to a message online that talked about how the church year has Lent and Advent and other times, but also ordinary time. That's often the hardest. So how do we welcome Jesus into the ordinary time? I want to do that. So I'm praying and welcoming Jesus into my today...and hopefully my every day.
Will you join me? Hosanna!
