Psalm 96:2-3

Proclaim God’s salvation day after day. Tell his glory among the nations; among all peoples, his marvelous deeds.

When I say that God saved me, I don’t mean that I was saved from some punishment.

God is love (1 John 4:8), not a judgmental tyrant.

When I do things that are not for my good or someone else’s good, God still loves me.

This is what makes all the difference!

When I realized this, when I experienced this love at my lowest moment in life, it changed me.

I had this inner awakening in a hospital bed over 20 years ago.

I can’t really explain it, but in a moment (or many moments, who knows?), I was filled with a wondrous Unconditional Love.

I didn’t deserve it.

I didn’t earn it.

It was freely given to me.

As a matter of fact, it was due to my lack of merit that I discovered the deep healing of a Great Compassion.

It was as if all things were one in this Love.

From that time forward, I knew I had to share this saving Love with all people and all creation.

I realized that this Unconditional Love makes me whole.

It frees me from fear to be who I am.

I have since recorded four albums of inspirational music and published two books.

“Sing to the Lord a new song” (Psalm 96:1).

Do you know that God loves you with this same Infinite Passion?

Allow this truth to inspire you!

Allow your true self to rise from the shadows in the Light of this truth!
