Here we are in the first days of Lent. During this season, we stand in the shadow of the cross and come face to face with the messiness of our lives.
It is our challenge to keep our eyes on Jesus and on each other, because we don’t walk this journey alone. This life is too hard to bear alone. Along this journey we will fall down. Maybe you already have. But this Body of Christ walks with us, helps us when we’ve failed and reminds us to keep your eyes on the cross and get back up. Easter is coming!
Jesus says, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:3
