The church bells are ringing this morning. The sun hits my face as I sit at my desk.

There’s a reason you’re reading this today. I believe that with all the breath and life that is in me.

Love is calling for you. Can you feel it? Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Feel your heart. Reach deep, past the scars and hardened tissue. Down in the depths, you can feel Him calling. Don’t let your mind take over, the mind that says His story is too fantastic, too crazy, to be real.

It’s real. He’s real. And He’s calling for you.

Come out of the shadows, away from the thoughts that keep you from Him.

It’s no coincidence Jesus asked us to be like little children. Did you ever wonder why? Remember when you were little and believed with all your heart? He is calling you back to that place. To choose.

Later, after you sit in the quiet and listen to your heart, think about the reasons why it’s so hard for you to believe. What did you experience that turned you away from God? Was it something someone said or did? Was it a human representative of a church that hurt your heart? Or did you turn your heart over completely to the logic of your mind, casting aside what your spirit whispers to you in the dark of the night?

Let me know. Maybe we can talk. Finally talk. Like loving fellow travelers in this journey of life.

I honor you today.

May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding flow to you…wherever you are.
