May all our days be songs of endless praise to God’s unconditional love.

Psalm 71:16-17

I will speak of the mighty works of the Lord; O GOD, I will tell of your singular justice. God, you have taught me from my youth; to this day I proclaim your wondrous deeds.

God’s justice is not retributive but restorative.

God’s aim is not to punish…but to make everything whole.

It is God’s “singular justice.”

We see this pattern throughout creation: all things are in a perpetual process of dying and rising.

The dead of winter is always followed by the new life of spring.

We all experience losses…but when we trust in the Flow of God’s grace…we always experience new life.

We simply must let go…or allow certain things to end…in order for something new to start.

When we look back at our lives…we see that many of the so-called bad times actually led us to better times.

It was the process needed for our transformation to a higher level of consciousness and existence.

For me…I see those times as God’s greatest gifts to me…when I most needed grace and mercy.

Those were the times that inspired my creativity to write songs that I share today in ministering to the sick, dying and incarcerated.

I give praise to God for all of it.

May we all allow our stories of death and resurrection to lead us to the good works we were designed to do!
