Life is busy. Filled with people, obligations, work, information, and endless opportunities, it is hard to stop or rest, or regain perspective on what is important. We are not inclined to create space for ourselves or God. Our margin is eaten up by the internet, responsibilities, anxiety, guilt, food, or tv. It is much easier to keep going and going and going and never recalibrate. It's why many we wake up toward the end of life with more regrets than Bill Buckner or the founders of New Coke.
Lent: Creating space for more of God. Putting a stopper in the revolving door of life in order to reconnect with Christ, the source of Life. Saying no in order to say yes. Coming clean in order to start fresh. Who doesn't need time to recalibrate the soul, heart, and mind, and learn again to see life from God's perspective? Its time to embrace Lent as the gift it was meant to be. Will you accept the invitation of Lent to make more space for Christ in your life?
