Running from Empty | 2023 Lenten Devotional
Life these days. It's a lot.
Many of us are constantly on the go—not only because our production-addicted society demands it, while shaming those with too little to do, but also because staying busy is a familiar way to avoid anxiety and angst.
We are simultaneously running from empty while running on empty.
Jesus might ask us: "Beloved, is empty the worst thing that can happen to you? Is stillness and doing nothing so awful? Perhaps the thing you are running from is the very thing you most need."
Enter Lent, which is all about surrender, emptying, and letting go of everything that leads away from the cross. Running from Empty is a daily invitation to embrace the empty places we might prefer to avoid; to breathe deeply, love fully, act justly; and to find Jesus in the stillness and the storm.
