Be Renewed


You are loved and accepted as is by the Love that made you.

(Listen to my song “The Way You Are” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Psalm 51:12

A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit.


Whatever you have done to turn away from God…is in the past.

That includes something you did seconds ago.

That time no longer exists.

As St. Paul said, “Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Now is the only time where God is present, where the kingdom of God comes alive.

Now is when God is always gazing at you with unconditional love and acceptance.

God always looks at us with open arms.

There is no condemnation.

There is no question of worthiness.

You are loved and accepted as you are.

This Love makes you worthy.

Open your heart and allow Compassion itself…your loving Creator…to renew you.

During this time of Lent, take the opportunity to repent…which simply means, turn to God…or in other words, turn to Love.

Live in the knowledge that you are loved and accepted as is.

Spend some quiet time and bask in that love and acceptance.

Be renewed!
