I wish I could take the colors from a rainbow
and place them into your heart
so you would remember what beautiful feels like
and know there is hope in the dark.
--Christy Ann Martine
The bottom line is that external practices without internal conversion are fruitless and vain. So are internal changes that bear no external fruit. The fact is that sometimes we change from the inside out, and sometimes from the outside in. The season of Lent is a way to let Jesus purify our entire inner and outer life through the life, dying, and rising of Jesus.
