Be You


Each of us has a unique calling.

(Listen to my song “Turn Off the Noise” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


John 6:44-45

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day. It is written in the prophets: ‘They shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.”


We’re all yearning for something.

Unfortunately, many times we end up trying to satisfy that yearning with material things.

That will not work…because the origin of our deep yearning is God.

The yearning can only be satisfied on a spiritual level.

God is drawing us, calling each of us to wholeness.

To be whole…you need to be your true self.

As Thomas Merton once said, “If I find God, I will find myself, and if I find my true self I will find God” (New Seeds of Contemplation).

This will require letting go of things that are preventing you from being your true self…so that God can give you what you truly need.

Try setting aside quiet time to simply be present to the Divine Presence.

Listen to the silent whisper in your heart…that internal yearning…inviting you to be you.

You are being drawn by God, your Divine Teacher, to follow the path of Christ.

It will lead you to service and new life.
