Lent Week One Meditation: The Wilderness

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

Shalom SOULjourners! Let's lean into Lent and bless our sacred alignment. Have you tuned in to the podcast series and downloaded the Lenten Devotional?

Lend yourself to lean into week's one Lent theme: wilderness.

We are in a meditation series for the 40-days of Lent through the last day of Passover/The Feast of Unleavened Bread. Follow along and align your soul.

Together, Let's BLESS, BREATHE, and RELAX as we choose to fast from going fast.

BLESS - Your Wilderness Discernment

The presence of the Beloved walks with us in the wilderness; oftentimes, He carries us. The wilderness is not necessarily about hardship, it's a womb of grace that gets us away from all the noise and gets our undivided attention.

BREATHE - Inhale Trust, Exhale Doubt

Intimacy and trust are fashioned in the wilderness. Hunger in the wilderness may feel like deprivation, but Jesus uses it as an honorable invitation and gateway to teach us about true, nourishing Sustenance.

RELAX - With A Sunset Walk With Jesus

Make an appointment to go outdoors to meet Him at sunset. Notice how He provides you with sanctuary from the horizon of the starlight night. Be enveloped in the thin space of heaven and earth.

Go Slow & Savor Our Meditation Focus - Hunger

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."

In This Mohawkmomma Soul Podcast Episode:

— You’ll be invited to imagine yourself accompanied in the wilderness at sunset with Jesus.

— You’ll be guided to name your current wilderness place and pay attention to your hunger and the source of your sustenance.

— You’ll learn that wilderness is not merely about hardship, but it's about the Beloved getting your undivided attention.
