Second Sunday of Lent 2024

(Note: I expect that when you come to this post you may not immediately have time to dedicate to these Lenten practices. So I encourage you to set aside a specific time during the week to read it and carefully walk through the process with intention.)

As we continue our Lenten journey, this week is dedicated to self-examination, reflecting on who we are. While this may feel daunting, it’s an essential step in our growth.
Take some quiet time this week to reflect on yourself, your actions, your goals, and your life. Consider the following questions:
  • Are you using your time wisely?
  • Are you taking anything or anyone for granted?
  • Are you serving others?
  • What brings you joy in life right now?
  • What do your lifestyle choices reveal about your priorities?
  • Do you harbor a negative attitude toward someone or something?
  • Are there areas where you need more self-control?
  • Are you investing effort into your relationships?
  • Are you prioritizing your physical well-being?
  • What personal sacrifices are you making to serve others and the Lord?
  • Do you lack compassion in your life?
  • Do you tend to make impulsive decisions?
  • What do your spending habits say about you?
  • Do you need to cultivate more patience?
  • In what areas do you struggle with pride instead of humility?
  • When you pray, do you focus solely on yourself or also intercede for others?
  • What are you willing to sacrifice to obey God?
  • Do worry and dread consume your days?
  • Do you extend kindness and love to everyone?
  • Is there a habit you should break?
  • Are you actively seeking the Lord and spending time in His word?
  • Does the joy of the Lord radiate in your life?
  • Is there something you’re holding onto that you need to release?
  • Is there someone you need to forgive?
  • What changes do you need to make within yourself?
This part of the journey isn’t meant to discourage you, but rather to encourage introspection and growth. In the coming weeks, we’ll address these reflections further. For now, ponder these questions, meditate on them throughout the week, and ask the Lord to reveal areas where you can improve.

Lord, examine our hearts, test our thoughts, and reveal our motivations as we reflect on the life You’ve given us.


As we reflect this week, this song is a great reminder – the Lord loves us.
He always will and nothing can change that.

The photo above captures a serene moment early one morning as the mist rose on a lake in Kentucky where we spent a few days in reflection and prayer last Spring. Show me Your ways and teach me to follow; guide me by Your truth. You keep me safe, and I always trust you. – Psalm 25:4-5
I pray these words and messages will help you prepare your heart and soul for His resurrection!! Lenten blessings to you.
