Every day of the Lenten season, beginning on Ash Wednesday, we have the opportunity to take a fresh look at His words, His relationships, His sacrifice and to discover how our lives can be more fulfilling by being more like Him.
In Journey Through the Cross: Meditations for Lent, you will find forty devotional

whoever stepped in was made well.] A man was there who had been ill for thirty-
If we are ever to be made whole, it will not happen by waiting on the sidelines,
by someone else carrying us along, or by magical rituals. Jesus is the only way for
a life to be made whole again. We must believe in His authority, pick up our own
baggage, and walk away from old beliefs and habits that cripple us. Get up, pick
it up and start walking!
Today I commit to getting off the sidelines. Help me leave the past behind, forgive myself and start strengthening my faith as I walk forward with You.
The Fourth Sunday of Lent – Do Something
Mother Teresa of Calcutta once said, "If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed
just one." This small, fragile woman was not wealthy, nor beautiful, nor in a position
