Lent 2021: Real Love by Athelia Knight
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
March 25, 2021
I like to travel. I like to exercise at the gym. I like to worship at 1518 M Street N.W. Since the coronavirus pandemic, I have not been able to do these activities because it is not safe or healthy. I miss them. In the midst of this pandemic, I have been thinking about these things that, previously, I would do without giving any thought that they can be taken away.
Not being able to travel, exercise at the gym, and worship at 1518 M Street N.W. has made me really appreciate these blessings that God has given me. I am grateful to have them. I have faith that I will be able to do these things once this pandemic is over and it is safe to do them.
This Lenten season, I will reflect on the many blessings I have been given by God. I will thank God for the many blessings. And I will thank him for his son, Jesus, who he gave to us because he loved us so much.
Prayer: God thank you for your many blessings. Let me not take your blessings for granted. Let me cherish them and
thank you every day.
