Trust in Love


Struggles lead to new life if you’re open to change.

(Listen to my song “Changed” by clicking HERE)


2 Corinthians 4:11

For we who live are constantly being given up to death for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh.


Something BIG is going on.

Our Creator’s plan is unfolding…and has been unfolding for millennia.

Dying and rising has been ongoing. It is happening all around us.

Life is being transformed through change. God is at work in the very fabric of  it all.

Jesus showed us that the way to life…is through death.

It is a constant process of letting-godying to our egocentric desires for power, prestige and possessions…so that God’s desires for us can rise and be manifested instead.

When I “die” to my desires…there is an opening for God’s desires to rise in me. The risen Christ…a transformed life in spirit and truth…can live in me so that I can become the hands and feet of Christ to the world.

Giving up our egocentric pursuits will feel like dying because we are letting go…but the payoff is in the becoming conscious of our true selves.

Dying always leads to new life as Love transforms us…and gives us what we truly need…as any loving parent would do!
