Welcome to Lent, are you excited?! Again, I look forward to delving into the best version of who God is calling me to be. I know I hit that topic enough last week, so let’s build on that.
The three questions I will be focusing on for this Lent are:
1. Where is your heart?
2. Where are you going?
3. Where do you want to go?
For a little self disclosure, I’m also trying to assess where my heart currently is. Not just the physical organ in my body, but the emotional and spiritual center of my life. I feel like as of now, I definitely do not have as much peace in my heart as I would like. Again, I think time in Adoration or silence can help with that, but we don’t always have that opportunity with our busy schedules. So how can I take the time to assess where my heart is? Where I am headed? Or even the lofty question of: Where is God calling me?
I also still feel like I have a long way to go in becoming a disciple, especially as the sinner that I am. However, I found a quote by Saint Teresa of Calcutta. She states,
“I am nothing; I am but an instrument, a tiny pencil in the hands of the Lord with which he writes what he likes. However imperfect we are, He writes beautifully”.
I love this quote. It makes me realize that, even though I can mess up and make mistakes, as long as I am open to the Lord, He will write a beautiful story for my life. SO, here we are, right on the heels of the beginning of Lent. Are you open to letting God write a beautiful narrative in your life?! To be honest, I don’t know where it will lead, or what will occur on the journey. But with openness and trust as we build our friendship with Jesus, we will be on the path towards holiness. It’s not an exclusive path for those who don’t sin (which would certainly disqualify me). If there are two things that I know I need prayers for, it is for trust and openness in Jesus’ beautiful script for my life. I tend to overthink and overanalyze, so if you could pray for me as we enter this Lent, I would greatly appreciate it.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you, and I thank you in advance for your prayers. Here’s to a great Lenten journey together 🙂
