I’m expectant this Lenten season. My heart can already feel His presence stirring in the different facets of my life, but what I’m hearing most loudly is this: it’s not about me, it’s never been about me, it’s always been about Him.
Gratitude changes everything. Grace changes everything. He paid a debt we could never pay on our own. Our Father sent His son to flip the script on death and give us the greatest gift of all: eternal life. There is no logic at Calvary, only love.
Our Pastor said something last week I can’t shake. He said, “before we can build for His kingdom we’ve got to admit that we are a sinner, that we have junk in our heart.” The thing of it is, even after we’ve had our conversion moment, declared that our life is His, we are still in sin, we still need to go before Him in repentance daily. The hustle overtakes our hearts, and we need to slow down and realign.
