Lent VI- Thursday

GraceNotes Lenten ReflectionsEach of us has a preferred self that we’ve designed. Because we believe that we can construct a better existence than the one that God has given us. The problem is that something is always stopping us from reaching this preferred self. And we do this in several ways: we tell ourselves, “If I only had this or this would happen, or if only things were like they were in the old days then life would be better.” However, if we let go and allow Jesus to shape our lives He will create a new self for us that surpasses anything we can imagine.
