I love the Lent season because it is a time to reflect about the changes in our lives. This past Sunday in service the Transfiguration of Jesus was preached from Matthew 17:1-9. Upon further thought, I realize that we are transforming every day.
Transformation may mean that some thing in our lives has been changed or replaced with something better. Several days ago I noticed more changes in my transgender journey. More of my male identity is giving way to a more feminine personality. This is something I never actively sought but the Lord rendered upon me.
There are things that I can give up during Lent but I believe that something good will replace it. When I decided to be the transgender woman I was created to be, many avenues opened up to me. New friends, new thoughts, a new direction. Above all, I was transformed and renewed by God.
