How are you doing as we’ve crossed the half-way mark of Lent? Was giving up something, or doing something new been more difficult than you thought?
My plans have changed multiple times. I’ll be clear and honest – I did not fail but did not initially make good decisions and where I did fail was to put in place a back up or accountability partners.
I’m able to continue on this rocky road only by God’s unending grace. Whether I had extra chocolate, bread, or other sweets does not change the love God has for me, nor does it change God’s love for you on your journey.
The Example of Jesus
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us,”
Let us continue – to the Temple, to the Cross, and to the stone that is rolled away. Take a deep breath. Pray. Sing hymns. Pray some more. Be the Ambassadors of Christ in the world today. Amen.
