Lent 2013 – Day 1

 This Ash Wednesday,
I’m reminded that St Augustine of Hippo,
the influential philosopher and theologian (354 – 430) once said,

 ‘God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.’  

Waiting for smolt

Lord, help me to make the most of this Lent … too slow down … pause … stand in awe … and let Your Spirit permeate my body, mind and soul in the silence.

May I not be tempted to put off doing what is most important, lest the rush and noise drowns out Your life-giving Word for me today.
