As you embark on this journey:
This 40 day retreat emerged from my own Lenten journey. I give it to you to be traveled anytime you feel the need to turn inward and reflect. For that is the blessing of Lent and is what we should carry forward through life. There will always be times when we need to ask God to travel with us.
Let these 40 days allow you to discern this path. Walk with Christ and His Disciples with whatever you carry. When you arrive at the end - prepare for His arrival. Welcome Him in whatever way you require - allow Him to place His unwavering love where it is needed.
During your day:
"[...]And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
(Matthew 28: 20)
Throughout your day:
INHALE: Lord, travel with me.
EXHALE: As I travel with You.
(repeat as many times as needed)
Before you end your day:
Blessed Lord, thank you for the coming days. Help me to understand the significance of this journey we embark on. Come to my aid in times of distress. Help me to recognize the little moments of relief and joy. Transform my deficiency into prayer, my excess into fasting, and my unnecessary into offering. Saturate the path I walk with Your shadow. Amen.
Goodnight; sleep well; know you are blessed.
