How might you fix your eyes upon God today? Try to name one concrete action that will put your heart and mind in a position to be able to sense God’s presence with you.
Magnificent God, whose presence with us provides a peace that passes all understanding, inspire us with the desire to focus on you today. As we wander through the wilderness of Lent, remind us of our spiritual home with you. Amen.
~ Becky Ullom Naugle, Director for Youth and Young Adult Ministries
