Lent 2016--Day Fourteen

Lent is not quite half over yet, and I am running out of steam. How can I be so slovenly in my approach to Easter? Of course, I am aware there are many days left till Easter. Is it really so hard to find inspiration to write? Jesus had 40 days in the wilderness. I wonder how he felt even half way through. How hungry do you have to be to see rocks as bread?

Jesus didn't fall for the temptation. He kept his eye on his Father's truth. He told the Disciples, "You will all run away," but he also knew they would return and rejoice. They would not understand the resurrection, but when it happened, they would welcome him and feast with him. Forty days with him would seal the deal. Then there would be a new age, a new experience in grace.

Now, it's still hard and we don't see the end yet. Just hold on, the time is coming.
