Almost every person of faith has experienced a revelation of the risen Christ.
What’s your story?

ALMOST ALL PEOPLE OF CHRISTIAN FAITH claim to have some sort of experience of the risen Christ. For some, it happened underneath a starlit sky, or along a shoreline at sunrise. For others, it  was in worship on a Sunday morning when the preacher was preaching a fiery message, or at a funeral when hearts were heavy with grief. (more…)

One of the first lessons of faith is also the hardest for me: There is a God, and I’m not it! Whether my heart is heavy with worry or sadness, or I’m burned out from the day-to-day grind, that’s when I have to remember this important rule more than ever. I’m not God, and not every load is mine to carry, at least not by myself. God is there to help me!

Come to me, all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.
– Jesus (Matthew 11:28-29)

What burdens are you shouldering right now? What’s weighing heavily on your heart or mind? Are you able to let it go or hand it over to God? Be still. Breathe deeply. And ask God to take it from here. Remember: God’s got this!

Love,
Mark

 

“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst…’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What are we to repent?  Our indifference, our hardness of heart.  What are we to believe?  Jesus thirsts even now, in your heart and in the poor — He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you.”

– Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
