40 Days of Reflection

Yes, I realize that I have been rather MIA the last couple of months. It has been very difficult, and I admit to isolating myself and not reaching out much. I still feel like I’m in the middle of it, but I’m choosing to do some things differently. I may not always succeed, but I will continue to try.

I’m going through 40 days of prayers of repentance with B’ney Yosef North America, and a friend and fellow blogger and I starting talking about reflection. At sundown on the 22nd of August, we entered into the month of Elul on the Hebrew calendar. That began the corporate time of focus on repentance for the High Holy days of Yom Teruah, the Days of Awe, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. In the midst of examining our own hearts, we talked about what topic is the Lord highlighting for us.

Trust is a big deal, and I understand that part of this season for me has been experiencing a completely new and different facet of trust. I realize I’m coming late to the party, but I want to commit to sharing something from Scripture and my thought process on trust every day for 40 days (yeah, I’ll be doubling to catch up). I’ll also link the posts from Redshoooz, who is focusing on the heart, and B’ney Yosef North America. Feel free to walk alongside the journey with us.

The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, because he trusts in You.

Isaiah 26:3 (NASB)

  1. Trust really is the “biggie”. We really can’t love Him if we don’t trust Him and neither will we be inclined to obey His Instructions. Therefore, Repentance is focusing on drawing near to Him, to know and do His ways. The nearer we get, the more we know His ways, His Love, His Presence, His Works, etc… When we personally experience Him in the myriad of uniqie ways He encounters us, what can we do but trust Him more.. To endeavor to draw near Him during this time of repentance leads us to trust.
    His Appointed Times, His Feast are designed for just this purpose.
    Thank You, ABBA!!
