Lenten Devotional for February 10

God Gives Us a Home

Read:  Psalm 121

The Lord will protect you on your journeys—
whether going or coming—
from now until forever from now.
–Psalm 121:8

Reflect:

On the palm of your hand you write my name, O God.
Through the pages of creation, my life unfolds.
In the chambers of your heart, I have a home, O God,
where every cry is heard, every tear seen,
every thanks
whispered in the dark or sung to the morning
is known to you.
And still, I am slow to thank, to ask, to trust.
O God, who is great and good,
help me to pray.
Amen.
—Pamela C. Hawkins*

Pray:

God, thank you for knowing my name and for giving me a home so I can rest in you. Amen.

Respond:

Write your name on a slip of paper and hold it in your palm. Ask God to provide deep care for you and to guide your actions today. Imagine God’s arms wrapped around you. Recognize that God is with you.
