(Before you begin to sketch your Lenten plans on a piece of paper, go to the next post. We need to do some thinking and praying before we chart a course through Lent. God is our guide and it’s to God we must go before we do anything!)

My Lenten Plans:

A Good Beginning

Today’s “six minutes” need to be spent asking God how we should spend Lent 2007

We all have a fairly large stock file of resolutions in the back of our mind, an “ougha-do” list. These are the resolutions we usually pull out when Lent begins (or on New Year’s Eve.)

Perhaps we’d do better to put those aside for now and find out what God has in mind for us. There might be some surprises.

Put yourself in the following scene: Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.

You are now on the mountain with Jesus. It’s peaceful, with a wonderful view in all directions, and plenty of time to be alone, one-on-one with the Lord.

Talk straight with him and ask him to give you some thoughts about what to write for that previous post.

With the Lord’s help begin to sketch some possible plans on a separate piece of paper. Don’t worry about finalizing them yet. Lent is three days away. You can keep coming back to revise them.
