God Centered


Life is not about me…but about us.

Mark 7:24

Jesus entered a house and wanted no one to know about it, but he could not escape notice.


It’s very refreshing to realize that Jesus did not want notoriety.

He did not strive for the spotlight of stardom.

Jesus was always spending time with the rejects…the “nobodies.”

His mission was to heal, free the oppressed, include the outcast and restore people to their communities.

He didn’t want recognition.

The focus was not on him as a great healer but on the other in need of experiencing God’s unconditional love.

Jesus showed us that God wants to be with us in our brokenness and wants to lead us to wholeness.

In my life…it was God’s intimate embrace during my struggles that transformed me.

The journey itself is intertwined with God…so that as we live our questions…we find our answers in the process of growing in love.

As writer and retreat leader Paula D’Arcy said, “God comes to you disguised as your life.”
