Dear KOG family and friends,
Lent is the time of reflection, a time to slow down and focus on our relationship with Christ. It is a time to prepare our hearts for the celebration of Jesus rising from the dead on Easter morning.
Lent is usually my favorite season in the church year. I personally have grown so much during this time, and I have seen so many others' relationships with Jesus grow. However, to be completely honest, I've felt very hesitant about God's power over the past few months. Don't get me wrong, my head knows that God can do all things, but my heart is on a totally different page.
During Christmas, my family came down with COVID and I had to spend 28 days in quarantine. After missing out on Easter service and Christmas Eve service, I had finally reached my snapping point. I felt disconnected and isolated within myself. I had reached the point where I was continually thinking to myself, "I can't anymore, I just can't!"
It felt wrong and sinful and I was not sure how to pull myself out of it. However, as I did my praying and lesson planning for you and your families for the Lenten season, I realized I was 100% correct.
I can't but God can!
For Lent I am giving up the "I can't" mentality and replacing it with "God can."
Luke 1:37 says, "For nothing will be impossible with God."
I know that this past year has been hard on everyone, and I hope that you and your family will join with me and the KOG Kids Ministries on this Lenten journey of prayer and the "God Can!"
