Be You

When we are simply being our unique selves…we are praising God.


(Listen to my song “Glorify You with Me” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Ephesians 1:11-12

In him we were also chosen, destined in accord with the purpose of the One who accomplishes all things according to the intention of his will, so that we might exist for the praise of his glory, we who first hoped in Christ.


St. Paul speaks with deep mystical knowledge.

He tries to put into words what is beyond words – wisdom he gained through his encounters with the Transcendent.

He says that each of us has been chosen in Christ…in the Word that was at the beginning.

That is how long each of us has been cherished by God.

And each of us has been destined by the One…the Creator…to exist for the praise of God’s glory.

That is the One’s intent.

We are already one with the One.

We have been from the start.

And all that is expected of us is that we be who we are.

As each of us is eternally loved by the One…each of us is expected to share that Love in the unique way that only each of us was created to share it.

Receive that Love…allow it to bring you peace and joy.

Share it.
