SMI  LENTEN REFLECTION ON  HEBREWS 5:1-10c5

Lent generally prompts me to search out my sins, confess, and repent in order to start the season of Easter with a clean slate.  This year is different.  My family is in a state of transition. My daughter and her family are moving back to Dallas to live with my husband and me.  My own personal situation is also in a state of flux.  What is God doing here?  I am not privy to His plans, but as I was reading a passage in Hebrews, this verse caught my attention:  “And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was “ (Hebrews 5:4).  The reference is  to Jesus’ call by God to the priesthood, but the idea of call spoke to me.  Is God calling me to find a new way to serve Him?

Maybe.
