Preparation

Lent. Preparing for Easter. I’ll be honest, that is not what has been on my mind this season. I’ve been preparing for something else altogether. Deployment. It’s coming up in a just few short months. Instead if preparing for my Savior’s suffering, I’m preparing for my own. Instead of preparing for the ultimate Joy of Easter morning, I’m preparing for a season of loneliness.

There is something wrong with this picture. The only way I’m going to get through the months of anticipation and the following months of difficulty is if I find myself in my Savior. I need Lent and Easter if I’m going to prepare myself for the deployment.

I’m seeing more and more how the Lord needs to change my heart. I’m hard and I easily stray. The human heart – my heart – is an idol factory. Praise the Lord that he knows this about me. But, please, oh please, Lord, I ask you to change my heart and my way of thinking. I am yours.
