—Paul (Philippians 3:8-11)
Beginning Lent with a quiet sense of expectation and order. Discipline in this time holds the promise of aligning my life with His, and in so doing, learning who I am. Yet more than these personal benefits, Christ Himself is the great promise. May He overshadow me.
I pray today is better for me than yesterday. Perhaps my moodiness is in some part grace, exposure of how undisciplined my flesh is and how easily it will override the intentions of my spirit.
Still so much for which to be grateful. Gratitude is a huge part of living into the life He's giving.
