Listen to Your Heart

Each of us is called to be the unique person we were made to be.

(Listen to my song “Listen to Your Heart” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Mark 6:4-5

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.” So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there.


You know deep within your heart that you have a calling…at least, I hope you do.

If not…I’m letting you know right now!

You are here to share the love of God with the world in the unique way that only you can.

Hopefully, by grace, you are able to respond to the call or you will never have inner peace.

If you respond…you will have new life.

All it takes is being present to life as your true self.

That will mean letting go of all the attachments that are distractions from this path.

And that will mean making changes.

It will not be an easy road.

Those closest to you will likely not respond favorably to your changed ways.

Those in Jesus’ home town were first “astonished” by his teaching in the synagogue. But then they remembered how he was before he had left town…how Jesus had been a simple carpenter and the “son of Mary.”

Then they “took offense at him” (Mark 6:3).

Let this be a lesson to you: Do not look for approval or validation from someone before you follow the dream in your heart.

When you set off on a new course with enthusiasm, those close to you will feel their status quo threatened.

Most people do not want to change!

That’s okay…change anyway!

Listen to your life speak…and follow your dreams.

It’s never too late…or early to start!
