"Hopelessly Devoted to You . . ."


Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Pastor Emily decides to put together a series of Lenten devotions written by various members and staff of our church, Kennesaw United Methodist.  Imagine my delight when she asks me to not only provide the readings assigned to each day, but also to proofread and post each writer's contribution!

After writing devotions for almost two years now, this is right up my alley.  I can't wait to read others' interpretation of scripture, their stories, and the prayers they offer.

And, Emily has given me permission to redesign the church's blog space in any manner I choose.  That is exciting in and of itself!  I'm not sure at the moment what font or background I'll select, but I know I'll have a grand time creating our new look.

If you haven't decided on a Lenten discipline, or even if you have, I hope you will plan a daily visit to our blog beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 13th.  You are bound to be inspired and uplifted by these meditations and reflections.  I know I've been in reading the ones which have been submitted thus far.

So, plan to join us here, would you?  And, if the spirit moves you, take a moment to leave the authors your comments.  I know your feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Will you be joining in with Kennesaw United Methodist's devotions this Lent?

Will you pray with me?
We thank You, Father, for all those who volunteered to write a post for our Lenten Devotional Series.  May the words of their mouths and the meditation of all of our hearts be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer.  Amen.
