(Note: During the Lenten Season City Church will be blogging about Lent and our journey to Holy Week [April 9th – April 16]. I will be linking to the blog posts here on my blog page but you can find each blog post on our City Church website. Our hope is that each of these blog/articles will be an encouragement to you as you journey through the Lenten season as well.) There were no posts for Days 21-22. Today’s blog post is written by Amy Allen a member at City Church.
Lent Day 23: Lent and Refinement
I’ve had seasons in my life when I begged for refining, and seasons when I ran from it. This so happens to have just been a season of running. To be honest, I just felt tired. Tired of the hard. Tired of pain. I just wanted relief. I didn’t want to do the work of being humble. I didn’t want to do the work of being patient or “last”. I wanted to be first. I wanted to be comfortable. I wanted life to be fair. Or, maybe I just wanted to be in control. Don’t we all sometimes?
