During the season of Lent, we are called to simplify our lives so that we can make more space for God and experience God in new ways. Many of us choose to give up or let go of something or take on a new spiritual practice for Lent.
This Lenten season, let’s choose to do both. Let’s choose to give up and let go of the negative messages that we hear from others (and often tell ourselves) and let’s take on the practice of continuously reminding ourselves that God loves us, that we are God’s beloved children who are wonderfully made, and that we are worthy of that love.
So beloved, this Lent, let us all make the decision to BE LOVED.
This message was adapted from “Faith reflections: Beloved and wonderfully made” written by Emily Heitzman in the February 2016 issue of Cafe.
