When I think of the season of Lent, I think of:
Psalm 139:23-24 ESV

1 Peter 1:13 ESV
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani? ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’
We are loved so much - God turned from His only Son in that moment, to save humanity!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

1 Peter 5:10
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
