“But neurosis is often the psychic manifestation of a much deeper human darkness: the darkness of not feeling truly welcome in human existence. Self-rejection is the greatest enemy of the spiritual life because it contradicts the sacred voice that calls us the ‘Beloved.’ Being the Beloved expresses the core truth of our existence.” Henri Nouwen

Welcome

If you’ve made it this far, I invite you to go a little farther. Each week I aim to add a little perspective to your thought, a bit of clarity against a confusing world, words I hope becoming not just a respite but a means to strengthen your faith. My only goal is to open your thoughts to God’s desire to be ever-present in your life, to ask you to seek His truth with me.

Maybe you are a new Christian or a growing Christian or a mature one. You could be lukewarm or cold or red hot. Faith for you might be stale, confusing, and downright distant or as close as the comfortable self-image you saw in the mirror this morning. Writing to you from my experience, I hope you will see yourself there and say, "Me, too."

Please see each article as throwing a pebble in a pond and allowing God to do the ripples. And if you think it worthy, please pass it on.

All who know they are beloved by God have a burden to love others and self in a way the neuroses and cynicisms and wants pale against the peace lying within us. To fill the void with God over all the other choices tempting us must be self-evident in a Christian’s life.
