February 24, 2015 | WEBBIZ Thank you for joining us today, Tuesday February 24th, the 6th day of Lent. Also the feast day of St. Matthias the Apostle! TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE: HOSEA 6:3: LET US KNOW; LET US PRESS ON TO KNOW THE LORD; HIS GOING OUT IS SURE AS THE DAWN; HE WILL COME TO US AS THE SHOWERS, AS THE SPRING RAINS THAT WATER THE EARTH. Our days have become increasingly busy. I don’t know one person who would say their life isn’t busy. Calendars fill up faster than this snow is melting outside, making it hard to fit new things on the calendar a month out — let alone a week or day out. When chaos catapults into our busy plans, throwing us off, we instinctively allocate more energy and time to get back on the “everyday routine” tracks. How often does our prayer life get thrown into chaos? A lack of planning, distraction, or an uncertainty of where to begin is typically the culprit. All to often we let these stumbling blocks overcome our will to pray. But just as we put more energy into staying on schedule with our daily routines, we must likewise put an equal amount of energy and effort into staying on schedule in our prayer life. We must “press on to know the Lord”. This lent I encourage you to allocate more energy into your prayer life. It seems the more time and energy I put into increasing my prayer life, the more time and energy I have to carry on with the grocery list of my everyday to-do’s. For “He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.” All we have to do is press on. Missed yesterday’s reflection? IDEAS TO HELP YOU MEMORIZE BIBLE VERSES EACH DAY: ASK FOR THE GRACE TO REMEMBER THE VERSE THROUGHOUT THE DAY. ASK YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL TO HELP YOU REMEMBER THE BIBLE VERSE THROUGHOUT THE DAY BEFORE UNLOCKING YOUR PHONE OR SENDING A TEXT MESSAGE, EACH TIME REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. BEFORE SENDING AN EMAIL OUT, REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. WHILE BRUSHING YOUR TEETH IN THE MORNING AND AT NIGHT, REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. EACH TIME YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, BEFORE YOU START IT, REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. BEFORE PRAYER BEFORE MEALS WITH YOUR FAMILY, REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. SEND THE BIBLE VERSE TO YOUR SPOUSE, KIDS, OR FAMILY THROUGHOUT THE DAY AS A REMINDER. START EACH PRAYER THROUGHOUT THE DAY WITH THE BIBLE VERSE. EACH TIME YOU WALK THROUGH A DOORWAY, REPEAT THE BIBLE VERSE. PLEASE HELP US BY SHARING THIS WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS! WE WILL BE HAVING A REFLECTION EACH DAY, SO PLEASE COME BACK TOMORROW!
