In case you weren’t aware, the six Sundays are not counted among the forty days of Lent because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” – a celebration of Jesus’ victory over sin and death.
With this in mind, lets pause to consider:
“How have I been moved by God to respond in celebration this week?”
– Have I been fully centred on Christ and what He is teaching me?
– Have I made myself available to listen to and be empowered by the Spirit?
– How can I focus on His mission this week in light of what I have heard God saying
through these devotionals?”
Let us also consider during this time of celebration that we are actively participating in this journey together, in community, with thousands of others. Lets encourage one another, and inspire each other with thoughts and ideas as we celebrate together what the Lord has graciously done for us.

It is difficult for me to “pick” which reading impacted me this past week. Each one was well written and more importantly communicated God’s heart to us. I am striving to “Be Still” and “Be Courageous”, both are areas that I know I need to be intentional about.
I agree, Lori. It was hard for me to pick one. “Never Alone” probably impacted me the most. It’s encouraged me this past weekend.
