4th Sunday of Lent 2016 ~ Mystery of God's Image Within Us

Living Bread ~ Jesus said to them, “I am the Bread of Life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.” John 6:35       
                                                                                

During this season of reflections and renewal, join me in exploring the Bread of Life. When we encounter Jesus Christ, this Living Bread feeds, satisfies, and transforms us. Come on this journey and remember this True Bread “is broken for you”. ~ Donna Oswalt

Define yourself as one beloved by God. This is the true self. 
Every other identity is illusion. Brennan Manning

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness… God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:26-27 NASB

God breathes life into every being. When we begin to recognize the splendor of God, the soul finds a holy marker, finds God’s love permanently etched deep inside. With His enduring hope, God uses the cruel lessons of worldly success and moral apathy to expose our innocence and vulnerability, our brokenness and frailty. Then, He re-molds our apathy into compassion and our successes become fruit for His kingdom. God gathers all our broken pieces, creating a new beauty that reflects His divine image.
