The Scripture today invites us to return to God and to rend our very hearts, the place where all deep feelings dwell, not our garments, the superficial disguises we hide behind. In other words, our God wants all of us, not just the parts we are comfortable relinquishing. To figure out such deeply seeded issues, put aside some quiet time today. Get a journal and write down the plan. Feel the ashes crossed on your forehead as a type of anointing for the coming six weeks. Resolve to wear them invisibly each and every day as a sign of your commitment to this year’s journey.
