You may be heading into Lent not having had an epiphany, that is, you’re not sure how God is working in your life. Or perhaps God is not working according to your expectations. If this is the case, then don’t panic. Jesus’ inner circle of friends didn’t understand right away either. Like the disciples, you may need to work these things out with Jesus in your prayer. Ask Jesus to shed some light in your life, to transfigure it …. and then be patient. It may be that you’re being readied for something, and in God’s time, when you least expect it, EUREKA!!!
