Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” 9 At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. John 5:8
We all need to improve and change for the better. Lent helps us fight against our faults and make way for change.
And even when we want it, change is both appealing and frustrating. On one hand there is so much we would like to change about ourselves from eating better, exercising more or getting rid of fears and prejudice. On the other hand we can be so set in our ways. So reluctant to move out of our comfort zones.
Lord, grant us the joy of knowing change for the better as we trust in you more. Amen.
