A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Prayers for timone #5

from B. Stewart
"Dear timone,
May God's Grace continue to shine upon you."

Forget trying to be worthy of God's Grace. Forget trying to earn God's Grace. We are neither worthy nor can we earn it. That's what makes God so amazing--GRACE freely given to us no matter what we've done or what we haven't done.

But here is the rub, accepting God's Grace. For much of my life, I struggled to accept what God so freely gave to me. I kept turning my back, refusing to allow God in. In my confusion and chaos I closed God out, so set against anything good. Don't get me wrong, I did want good. I longed for joy. But in the fog of the enemy I kept turning in circles thinking I was moving forward.

Then one day, too exhausted, I clearly heard God speak to me. She was calling me out of my chaos. Finally, I let go of my way and took His hand.

Now, it's not about what God will do, it's about me keeping my face turned toward God's Grace shining upon me.

Prayers for timone #4

from C. Cattledge
"Dear timone, I am not surprised about your success. You are God's amazing gift. May he always Bless you and your family! Love, C."

I'm surprised by my successes. I'm surprised by what our amazing God has done/is doing in me/through me. I focused a great deal of my early life on what was wrong with me. I struggled to see God's amazing gift in me. In my early 30s I thought I was doomed to live a life of hellish unhappiness. Then I said "YES" to God and the transformation began. The long journey to this point has not been easy. I have NOT always welcomed what God was doing. I didn't readily get on the "bandwagon" of being conformed to Christ. No. I fought and discovered the futility of that fight. Living is SOOOOOOOO much better with God. Easier? Not always. More fulfilling? Filled with purpose? Yesssssss Indeed!!!

As you continue your journey toward Christ's Peace, don't fret. With Christ it's ALL Good.
