Focus on God's Faithfulness - Lenten Devotional 2018 - Monday, March 5

Focus on God's Faithfulness
Monday, March 5
Lectionary

Psalm 84:1-4 (NRSV)
The Joy of Worship in the Temple

How lovely is your dwelling place,
O LORD of hosts!
My soul longs, indeed it faints
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh sing for joy
to the living God.
Even the sparrow finds a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young,
at your altars, O LORD of hosts,
my King and my God.
Happy are those who live in your house,
ever singing your praise.

Reflection:

  • What has brought you the most joy lately?
  • Have you thanked God for that moment?
  • If not, spend time doing that now.

Prayer:
Gracious Lord, I praise You for the ways You provide for me and bring me joy. I praise Your name above all else. Amen.


The purpose of the season of Lent is to intentionally take time to reflect on Jesus' life and journey to the cross. The Lenten devotional is a tool to help people reflect on this journey.

The theme for this year's devotional is FOCUS. So much of our lives we end up focusing on the wrong things. We focus on our jobs, families, bodies, friends, self, and tons of other things. How might our perspective on all things in our lives change if we focused more on our faith?

You will find some days where you are encouraged to read Scripture and reflect. This comes from our Lectionary which divides the Bible into reading segments over a course of three years.
