You have a lot in common with the saints… Wild, I know! But before you spit out your green juice, hear me out: saints aren’t born, they’re made.
Padre Pio didn’t emerge from the womb with a halo on his head. Mother Teresa didn’t glow in the dark. These ‘extraordinary’ people started out quite ordinary. Saints start out as regular folks who strive for authenticity and compassion in everything they do.
What would that be like for you?
Imagine every interaction you have, from mingling at a dinner party to speaking on stage, being as natural and as truly ‘you’ as when you’re on the phone with your best friend.
What sets the saints apart is that they trust in the perpetual creativity of God, who brings beauty into the dark chaos of change. When their hours get cut at work, they see an opportunity to help out a struggling friend with her new baby.
The saints take life one day at a time. They know the universe has their back.
St. Francis nicknamed the saints “instruments of love”. He playfully refers to people as lumps of clay, ready to be sculpted by the divine potter.
Are you smooth and pliable in God’s hands? Or, are you stiff and resistant to change? If you can manage to let go of the death-grip on your baby blankly, you won’t regret it. 🙂
Did you notice that I’m describing you?
You are kind, talented and resilient; that’s why you’re a saint in the making. No one expects you to be perfect, not even God. I see you. I see your beautiful heart, and I’m cheering you on.
I made a video for you about St. Francis facing his fears and discovering hope surprising places…. If you need a dose of self-confidence, this video is for you.
