Bonnie explores a scene in Jesus’s final hours - a scene when he washed the disciples’ feet and encourages us to be vulnerable with our need for healing. Learn the power of being present (rather than avoidance) with what breaks our heart with God, so we can receive the healing for our invisible wounds to be made whole. Week #1 of the Stress Less Lent Series.

Lent Focus: Jesus washing the disciples’ feet. “Jesus loved them to the end.” John 13:1

Scripture: The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 34:18; 147:3

Soul Care Tip: Color, sketch, or doodle for 10 minutes. Coloring elicits a relaxation and a meditation-like response by helping you focus on the moment, practice mindfulness, and temporarily push aside worries.
