The same thing can be said of our spiritual journey. Things certainly are different depending upon where you are. Our perception of things will look a particular way when we are trapped in the bondage of sin. A similar situation will be viewed in a much different light if we are walking in God's grace. Even when we go through tough times, prayer will give us a different perspective. How frequently do we allow ourselves to struggle more intensely because we refuse to turn toward God?
My dear people, whether you are living in a cold, snowy climate, a rainy climate, or a sun-drenched climate, please stay focused on the Creator of all. We are now a full week into the Lenten pilgrimage. Have these last seven days looked any different for you than the previous week? Is there anything special about Lent for you right here, right now?
I encourage you once again to not let these days pass by without growing in holiness. Pray! Seek an outpouring of God's grace. Open yourself to the power of the Holy Spirit. Be holy! Be in love with Almighty God!
