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 #10

from O.Easter
"Dear God,
Thank you for your gift of Timone. Thank you for her contributions to the Church, the Tolton Program, and all she has taught.
Please continue to give her grace upon grace as she works to open people's minds to know you more deeply.
Please grant her good health and strength. All this I ask in Jesus' name."

I don't often think of myself as "gift". I struggle like many people with my value and worth. Then God's AMAZING grace washes over me and I realize I am made in the image and likeness of God and therefore, I am gift. I am working my way toward the understanding that my imperfections reflect not my shortcomings, but serve as reminders of how much I need God in my life.

These days, I'm working to invite God into my shortcomings instead of berating myself for their existence. When God is invited in, AMAZING GRACE transforms our shortcomings into ways to see more clearly, love more deeply.

Each of us is GIFT. Let's treat each other with the excitement that comes with giving and receiving a gift.

Prayers for timone #9

"timone, I pray that God continues to give you strength and eloquence to exemplify His Glory. Thank God for the gift that is you. And may the Holy Spirit continue to walk with you."

That's the thing: for God's Glory. How often do you get tripped up thinking that if's for your own glory? I know I have my share of failings, thinking that everything that is occurring in my world is all about me. Note: my world. Even my language has me speaking about me, myself and I, when I should be speaking about God's world.

The shift that needs to take place is that I don't shrink from glory, but that I proclaim it as God's Glory. I need to shine. I need to grow. I need to transform. Why? So that God's Glory can be revealed.

So,...I'm getting my mind right, cause my heart is already there.
