A Lenten Retreat Preview "Book of Lamentations"

A Lenten Journal Excerpt Day One

Day One

Scripture Reading: Lamentations 1:1-2

Personal Reflection


Darkened night
desolate streets
not the rest of dreams
nor of peace.

Rather despair spreading
rustling through
bondage packaged
built in reckless.

Abandon over years
a self-designed
city once puffed with pride
crumbles under foundation.

Weeps bitter tears
without hope.
Onlookers scoff
or mourn
lost heritage
lost legacy.

Writing Prompt

1.     In what ways do you identify with this city’s lament? Do you have areas in your life that have changed or been lost?
2.     Have you experienced an enormous loss or a betrayal of a friend?
3.     How are you expressing your disappointment to God? To others?
4.     How else has your relationship with the Lord been affected?

Psalm of Worship

“Do not fret because of the wicked; do not be envious of wrong doers."Psalm 37:1
