Lenten Meditation March 23
For so many years, I struggled with feelings of shame, anger and sadness I heard Theresa Bonopartis speak at a mother and daughter breakfast about her abortion. Afterward, I told my husband, ”I don’t have problems like that.” Well, I called the Lumina hotline and I felt relief. The woman on the phone was so reassuring.
I attended my first Entering Canaan Day of Prayer & Healing. I learned of God’s love for me as His child worthy of love. As in the reading from Isaiah 49:8-15,” For the Lord comforts his people and shows mercy to his afflicted.”
The depth of the mercy of Jesus gave me peace. I continued with the Entering Canaan Ministry I emerged out of my darkness into the light of Christ’s love.
In the Gospel according to John 5:17-30, Jesus said, ”Whoever believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from death to life.”
My faith continues to be my joy and my strength.
