Lent Week Eight Meditation: Witness

{Links are always at the end of your reading.}

Lend yourself to lean into week's eight Lent theme: witness.

SOULjourner, we are at the end of our Lent series, our wilderness journey continues individually, as well as collectively. As we witness and walk the wilderness terrain, my prayer is that a holy audacity will be cultivated as you witness the resource and refuge of the Beloved's abundant grace.

Instead of thinking of the wilderness as good or bad, I dare you to see it as GOD—God beckoning you to run with grace and truth into all things, instead of running from grace and truth or running from what you least prefer or fear in life.

— Andrea L. Palmer

(Introduction: Healing & Held, A Book of Blessings and Lament)

The wilderness is about God's Presence. Jesus' throne of grace ministry keeps the wilderness ethos alive in the Body of Christ to deepen our communion with divine Presence and one another.

Because the wilderness is about relationship, it was and still is the most appropriate place to burrow in the abundance of divine blessings of irrevocable healing, security, and prosperity.

— Andrea L. Palmer

(Week One: Healing & Held, A Book of Blessings and Lament)

We bless and witness God's goodness in our wilderness wanderings.

Can I get a witness? At some point, all witnesses must give their testimony. When and where have you witnessed God's rescue and refuge, this week? Pause and give testimony of God's goodness, especially in the obscure and unlikely places.

Jesus' Life was so all-encompassing that even in death life is generated.

It's from freedom that you witness the ever-deepening companionship with Jesus, not for it.

To breathe in companionship is to welcome communion with Jesus wherever you are. To breathe out estrangement is to draw close when everything in you wants to take flight.

Relax your soul, the Beloved welcomes you with open arms and a smile.

Go Slow & Savor Our Meditation Focus - Witness

Deuteronomy 8:3 & Luke 4:4: "Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD."

Jesus calls every generation to witness the divine Presence of human-divine righteous acts.
