Jesus then said to the Twelve, 'Do you also want to leave?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of everlasting life. - John 6:67-68Peter's words really strike at my heart! I could give up now, Jesus, but to what end? The end that ends in You is the only end I want. And then I finally got it. My crux move isn’t making that next sacrifice or act of self-denial, as beautiful as they might be. My crux move is surrender. The real journey of this Lent for me is traversing the expanse from self-reliance to self-surrender. Heavenly Father, as our Lenten journey continues, thank you for drawing us closer to You so you may speak Your Truth into our hearts. Thank you for giving us the grace and courage to keep moving forward into deeper and deeper self-surrender. Amen. Copyright 2018 De Yarrison. All rights reserved.[/caption]
