Ash Wednesday 2021 Giving up the Fear of Failure

Day 1: Ash Wednesday
Scripture Verses:
Psalm 23:1-6
Matthew 28:19–20
John 14:16–17
Questions to consider:
What is your favorite part of Lent?
What are you afraid to start?
If you took a step of faith into something new, what fears would you need to set aside?
How does Jesus help you overcome those fears?
How will you pursue the presence of God this Lent to overcome fear?
Plan of Action:
Make a commitment for the next 40 days to confront a fear and take a step towards a calling you have been afraid to live out. Put your commitment in writing and share it with another person.

Reflection
Joshua takes over command for Moses. He had big shoes to fill. Would he be up to the task? No one would blame him for being afraid.

The first thing God says to him is:

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 (ESV)
