Live Your Life


May you listen to your heart…and follow.

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…the people were impressed at first.

He had changed and grown in wisdom.

But then they asked, “Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary?”

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

When you drop all the masks and the old ways that no longer work for you…then start following your heart…you will meet opposition.

The emerging of your true self will be a wake-up call to others who are sleep-walking through life.

Your growth will make those who don’t want to changeuncomfortable.

Unfortunately, sometimes your closest friends and family can be the very ones who will give you the most resistance.

That’s because when you follow the dream God has given you…it will challenge those around you to do so as well.

And they just might not like it.

But remember…you are not here to please them.

You are here to please God.

And when you please God…your true self will shine.
