Last week of Lent

This is the last week of lent. How was the Lord’s prayer this past week?

 

Each day this week we’ll focus on a Beatitude…walking us to the Passion week. I also wanted to add something to our times with the Lord this week. I don’t know about you, but spring has totally come up and arrived. With the adjustment to daylight savings under our belt (was it hard for you as well to loose that hour?! man!) our evenings are lighter and just inviting an after dinner walk. This is a perfect time to also experience the Lord as you are walking. Take in the shades of the scenery around you – in the light of the sunset. It’s by far the best lighting of the day. Take pictures on your walk-either mental, or photographed, or if your draw-take a moment to sketch a moment of your walk – slow down and enter into this last week of Lent. Take your walk time to go through the beatitude of the day. Talk through it with your kids as you walk…take the time to memorize it.

 

Begin each day before your feet even hit the floor and end each day before your light turns off with the Lord’s prayer. Just slowly pray it and allow it to begin and end your day. Journal about your time in the beatitude.

 

Blessings to you as you walk with Jesus this week. May the peace and grace of our Lord and Savior be with you as you journey with him.

 

Here is a map for the week-this is only a suggestion. You can spend the time in the Beatitudes however you want.

 

Monday: verse 3-4

Tuesday: verse 5-6

Wednesday: verse 7-8

Thursday: verse 9-10

Friday: verse 11

Saturday-3-7

Sunday: 8-11

 

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

 

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are those who mourn,

for they will be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek,

for they will inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,

for they will be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful,

for they will be shown mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart,

for they will see God.

9 Blessed are the peacemakers,

for they will be called children of God.

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
