The True You


You are an eternally loved child of God.


Isaiah 49:1

The Lord called me from birth, from my mother’s womb he gave me my name.


You are a creation of God…a beloved daughter or son.

God loved you into existence

There is nothing you can do to change that unconditional love. God wants nothing more than to love you as you are and transform you into a living channel of love.

Your Creator wants you to realize your full potential…not for your own personal fulfillment…but to take part in the building of the kingdom of God in the here and now.

That will require letting go of your ego-centered plans…so God’s plans can rise within you. As Jesus put it: “Not my will but yours be done” (Luke 22:42).

What is God calling you to be? “You”! That’s what God is calling you to be!

But to be your true self requires letting go of the false self your ego has worked so hard at constructing.

Lent is just the season for “dying to self”…so that a “rising” can occur.

Jesus showed us the model. Resurrection is assured.

New life…your true life…is promised.
