Lent Day 8: Thursday after the First Sunday in Lent

15 I will feed My flock and I will lead them to rest,” declares the Lord God. 16 “I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick; but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with judgment. ~ Ezekiel 34:15-16 (NASB)

Lord, I am a sheep of Your flock. You give me rest; You find me and bring me back when I am lost; You bind up the injured and strengthen the weak. Yet I don’t like to admit to weakness. I want to be strong on my own—I want to be the fat and powerful sheep, but that is who You destroy. Your will is for me to depend totally on You and not myself. Help me, O Father, to trust You implicitly and depend on You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
