Son of Man coming in his kingdom."
This one is hard. This is where Jesus asks us to leave everything behind and just follow Him. It always sounded to me, at first, like He is asking us to abandon our modern lives, jobs, homes and families, but rather I think He is asking for our trust. When we stop and listen, I believe He will tell each of us what we should do to fufill our purpose here on Earth. He sometimes speaks through a sermon, a friend, or even a blog about how someone else is living out their mission. Lent is a time to try and slow ourselves down for a few moments every day, quiet our minds and listen. I believe it is in the stillness that God calls each of us to what we are meant to be.
"We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence... we need silence to be able to touch souls." -Mother Theresa
Lord, quiet my mind, my heart, my soul.
Help me to allow the stillness to fill the empty spaces.
Give me strength to let go of what I believe
So you can show me what I should believe
Give me the strength to trust in your voice
So that you can show me the path you desire for me.
