Where does our identity lie?

Really, when all is said and done, when the eulogies are given and the will probated and the estate closed, out identity is the same as it always has been and will continue to be–in God alone and in his living Word/Son, Jesus Christ. In this life, we do not attain some sort of “moral worthiness” in God’s eyes. Rather it is relationship, absorbing and sharing His love and justice, in a way that does not “earn” but rather “returns” what we have received.

In the everyday busyness of my life, I think of what “I” need to accomplish.  I am thankful that it is not my agenda but God’s that counts–and that all I really need to do each day is to breathe an awareness of His surrounding me. I do not need to go to so called “sacred” or special places to be with Him.  He is with me in my life’s ordinary events and encounters–I just have to be open to this awareness.
