Lenten Devotional 3/18/19

March 18                        Romans 1: 1-15                   Christine Woodward

Reflection:  I specifically reflected on praying to God in these verses.  Praying has been an extremely important part of my life.  I feel like I can have a conversation with God whenever I stop and pray. I can tell God my thoughts, worries, and good news.  Sometimes we fight, sometimes we are best friends, and sometimes God is the parent I need comforting me.  I went through a hard time several years ago, and we had a long battle.  I trusted God but was upset.  We had a lot of conversations about my needs and wants.  It took me a long time to understand God has a plan for me, and I just need to be patient to see that plan.  God trusts us to believe and is patiently waiting for us to share our belief with others.  I am not the perfect Christian, but I have my faith to keep me strong.  I feel the best way I can share my faith with others is just to pray for or with my loved ones.

Prayer:  Hey God!  Thank you for listening to me and comforting me when I am struggling.  This lent, help us to communicate our thoughts and feelings with God.  Help us share our prayers and blessings with others.
