Monday of the First Week of Lent 2019

  The fact that Jesus is both God and human is such an overwhelming truth and comfort to me.  Knowing and understanding that Jesus experienced everything that being human means.  He faced more difficulties in his life than I will probably ever experience.  The challenge for me is to remember that nothing I struggle with is unknown to Jesus.  Everything in our lives has already been part of the life of my savior and friend.  So this challenges me to give up fear and dread because Jesus is already there at my side.  Unfortunately I don’t always remember this.  Perhaps the greatest gift of Lent is the opportunity to be reminded again that Jesus walks with us.
