Moving Meditations for Lent | Sorrowful Mysteries: The Agony in the Garden

I’ve been really bad at keeping up with Moving Meditations for Lent, but I want to start again. Isn’t this the beauty of the Lenten season? It’s that hard part. The hard realization and the discomfort right before change takes place. Before we are rejuvenated and lifted up. So here’s to starting over … I decided that I want Moving Meditations for Lent to very much be about taking little moments in our everyday life to move intentionally- offering mind, body, & spirit to something bigger than ourselves. On this day, we look to the first Sorrowful Mystery- the Agony in the Garden. This is the moment where I believe Jesus has revealed Himself to be incredibly vulnerable. He’s not the guy who confronts the high priests here- He’s the guy who is terrified of the path He is lead to. He is humbled. And so like Jesus, we kneel – to humble ourselves. Especially in our busy lives, we take a quiet moment to kneel to recognize that we can’t do it all, we are not perfect, and that some moments are scarier than the others. Sometimes we have to admit to ourselves our faults, say like not keeping up with moving meditations? But don’t worry, it’s okay. It’s okay. It will be okay.
