this is a picture of the last page in my sermon/prayer journal. In my time as a pastor I have had countless “last page” moments. Some were grateful moments as the journal represented a darker time and some were mournful as the pages of prayer and reflection documented a sweet season with God. This morning When I flipped to it this morning it was neither sad nor joyful rather it was the feeling of a crossroad. Where will God lead me in the next season? What will the pages of the next journal detail?
Lent is a time for hopeful introspection, a looking back and a gaze forward. My prayer is that wherever this next season takes me, I will close that journal having seen Jesus behind me, walking with me and the destination ahead.
