March 12 – Fourth Saturday of Lent

trustGodToday’s Scripture

“For to you I have entrusted my cause!” (Jeremiah 18:20).

Daily Lent Reflection

Jeremiah initially did not believe himself to be worthy to be a messenger for God. But God knew differently and here Jeremiah puts all his trust in the Lord; in this reading he says he “was like a trustful lamb being led to the slaughter-house.”

What a challenge for us! Not simply to trust God, but to trust that God knows what plans there are for each of us – and that God is to be trusted even when it might feel like we are being led to the “slaughter-house.”

Daily Lent Challenge

Today I will ask myself do I trust God that much? What would it be like to open myself to experience that level of trust? Are there small steps I can take today to try that?
