My reflection is from Living Faith:
Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heating his voice, and holding fast to him. Deuteronomy 30:19–20
“Yesterday marked the beginning of Lent. Maybe the Holy Spirit has already kindled a fire in you. Maybe you began a new journey of prayer, fasting and almsgiving on Ash Wednesday that you are eager to carry forth. Maybe instead, you feel edgy, hungry and dispirited, your enthusiasm worn down by discomfort. Maybe you haven’t even started yet, despite your best intentions!
Wherever today finds you, take heart. You haven’t failed yet, nor have you finished. Lent is away to order our steps, individually and as a community. It gives us focus and support. Yet in this very moment, in every moment, the Lord is reaching out to draw you closer to him. So, start where you are. Use what you have. Keep moving toward God, today and every day. It is never too late to begin.
Lord Jesus help me to grow closer to you during this holy season.” Karla Manternach
