Lent 2010, Day 17

Then they believed His words;
They sang His praise.
They soon forgot His works;
They did not wait for His counsel,
But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness,
And tested God in the desert.
And He gave them their request,
But sent leanness into their soul. Psalm 106:12-15
How easily we all forget the big picture because of the crises that pop up every day. Lent offers Christians a period to re-establish their relationship with God and a new view of the big picture. This is the time for each of us to remember how God has worked in our lives. This is the time to make habitual prayer a cornerstone of every day, not just a fall-back position in times of desperate need. This is the time to receive the graces He sends us "anew every morning."
