Being Dust: Daily Reflection 3

The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4, NRSV

We confess what is broken because we yearn to be whole. This is less about a God who needs our confession, and more about humanity that needs to rekindle an awareness of what is truly sacred. God’s breath into the dust of our lives means that we are made of dust divine– ashes to ashes, dust to dust. From where we come we will return. Katie Harmon-McLaughlin, Being Dust: Ash Wednesday

Reflect: 

  • What hopes for wholeness do you have in your relationships this Lenten season?
  • What does it mean to rekindle an awareness of the sacred in your life?
  • Prayerfully dwell in the text above from Job 33:4.  What is God’s invitation to you in this text?
