Do you sometimes feel like you've been stuck in a cocoon? This past week both literally and figuratively if you've been stuck in the deep freeze in Texas like me.When normal life stops like this, it gives me time to think about my "life" and to wonder if I am the person I'm meant to be?In the most recent newsletter from the Women's Ministries of TWUMC, my friend Grace Ono wrote this:
"During the season of Lent, we remember Jesus' journey to the cross. We set this time aside to reflect upon Jesus’ sacrifice for the redemption of the World. Every winter, I look forward to the Lenten season. In this time, I invite God to continue shaping me in to the version of self He intended. Our relationship deepens and I find myself becoming even more dependent upon Him."God loves us more than we can ever imagine.As Christians, we are created in Christ's image, we have been filled with the Holy Spirit and will have everlasting life. What could be better than that?Our time has come to jump for joy, spread our wings and soar to new heights!And to share the love of Christ to the world together.
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new has come!"
2 Corinthians 5:17
