Marcus Aurelius wrote; “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” We have within us the ability to change and grow. The question is whether or not we will open ourselves to every opportunity to change and grow. Today we move into the Lenten season. For some it’s a time of discipline and others a time of self reflection. Either way, we anticipate that when the season comes to a close, we are strengthened by our perseverance and have opened ourselves a little more to God’s will in our lives. Change as we know can be scary but is part of the process of growth, which doesn’t always come easy. Our learning curves can sometimes be rather stubborn. For this reason the season of Lent, spiritually never has and ending. Gracious God help us to know ourselves well enough to understand that there is always more to be known.

…let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us… Hebrews 12:1-14

Luke 18:9-14;  Jonah 3:1-4:11
