Lenten Meditation March 15

Today’s readings

“Though your sins be like scarlet, they may become white as snow”

How often I’ve read this and shied away, ran away. I couldn’t imagine how this could be true! How fitting are the words “like scarlet”,  as the blood of my children is on my hands.  I’ve wrestled myself for years to believe what Jesus said, “you may become as white as snow.” I’ve longed to believe that I am worthy. But I’m not worthy, none of us is.  That is why He died on the cross for us. He paid for my abortions on the Cross because I belong to Him. He treasures me; I am His beloved. He longs for me to know His love and share His Heart. He sees my brokenness and heals me. He cleanses my sins and my wounds and invites me to rest in Him.  “Cast away…all the crimes you have committed…and make for yourselves a new heart and a new spirit.”  Yes, Lord, I accept Your command.  I want to live in Your Heart and I believe all You tell me.  You make all things new. I love You and profess with St. Augustine, “our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

Today, do not tie up heavy burdens and lay them on your shoulders.  Humble yourself and invite our Lord into your heart where He sees all and greatly desires to heal you and love you.   DS
