THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The first Sunday of Lent-I love Lent, it’s a great season where we
can get in ‘transformation’ mode. Regardless of whether or not someone
is still ‘practicing’ their faith, people still seem to get on board
with Lent. We usually give something up, but remember it’s not simply
about weight loss or getting fit. By doing these things we are trying to
make room for something deeper. It’s a spring cleaning sort of time.
What needs clearing out in my life so that I can make more room for God?
Or often do we need to make more room for what God has planned for us?
We can get stuck, especially when we are comfortable and don’t really
want too much change. But without change we cant grow and things fast
become stale in our lives.
God is always urging us on because God knows just what possibilities
there are for each of us. So Lent might be a time where in giving up
something or taking on something, we make space for something new. The
Gospel today is short and sweet - Jesus is sent into the desert and we
too are invited into a desert time. Deserts are interesting places which
can allow us to reflect, give ourselves space and we should not be
afraid because as the gospel tells us clearly today, it is a Spirit led
desert. God is with us in this desert. So enjoy Lent, embrace it. How we
make use of this time determines what will be.
