Today is the first day of Lent, so I want to share with you a favourite poem I first posted a long time ago:
Your tears, Lord;
Your life force;
Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head (Luke 9:58; NLT).
If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread (Matthew 4:3; NLT).
Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground (Genesis 2:7; NLT).
He was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood (Luke 22:44; NLT).
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Mark 15:34; NLT).
