In the season of Lent, we are reminded that, again and again, suffering and brokenness find us. We doubt again, we lament again, we mess up again. Again and again, the story of Jesus on the cross repeats - every time individuals forget how to love. And yet, in the midst of the motion-blur chaos of our lives, God offers a sacred refrain: "I choose you. I love you, I will lead you to repair." Again and again, God breaks the cycle and offers us a new way forward.
This Lent, may God's steadfast love cradle our laments.
May God's grace wash over our weariness.
And may we bring all of who we are to God -
trusting that God will meet us, time and again, along the way.
