One of the spiritual practices that helps us gain new perspective on repentance.
Imagine stepping into God’s presence, much like Esther stood before the king. Watch as God extends His scepter to you and offers you abundant grace and love through Jesus.
Pour out the emotions bubbling in you at this moment. Tell God how you are feeling about your day. Be joyful, be offended, be you: Naked and authentic before Him. Remember, God will never misunderstand you.
Move into a quiet time of reflection. Consider the activity of your day and seek God’s guidance as you ask two questions:
When did I feel closest to God today?
When did I feel distant from God?
Listen as you reflect on the questions. What is God calling you to do in these moments with Him?
Repent as God pricks your heart.
Recall the priorities God has given you.
Remember the promises of God.
Close your time together with thanksgiving.
