    My Lent is off to a shaky start because it’s not what I envisioned, but isn’t that in itself Lent-like?

    Lent is an invitation to the messy process of sanctification. A chance to be tested, to face our flesh, and train our response (submission over rebellion) to the Spirit. Last night’s adventure posed a miniature Lenten sacrifice: to not have things our way.

    When we are tested and exposed–it’s not often pretty. But 1) God is good 2) He still loves us and 3) He certainly isn’t going to leave us alone. That “Prodigal” God is awfully available and awfully persistent.

    Here’s to a messy Lent. The Potter’s hands are sure to get dirty workin’ on me.

    Love this, Erica. I especially appreciate the way you respond to a frustrating situation not by trying to fix the situation, but by looking for how God might use the situation to shape and grow you. A great encouragement and reminder to me!
