Go Forth


You are called to shine the light of truth in the name of Love.

Mark 6:4

Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and among his own kin and in his own house.”


When Jesus returned to his hometown of Nazareth…he astounded the people with his teaching. At first they were impressed. But then they asked, “Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary?”

In other words, “We remember who you were…so who do you think you are now?”

And then the scripture says, “They took offense at him.”

Following your heart…giving your all to being the person you were meant to be (your true self) will mean growth and change. Some people will not be comfortable with that.

As a matter of fact, sometimes your closest friends and family can be the very ones who will give you the hardest time.

If they see you change…then they have to change in the way they see you.

The fact is…many people do not like change!

When you follow the dream God has given you and begin to live it…you will be growing and moving out of your comfort zone. This will challenge others around you to do the same…and they might not like it.

Your duty is not to please them but to please your true self… because when you do that…you are pleasing God. So listen to your heart…and then follow Jesus.

It’s a sure path to finding your true self and inner peace.
