Reboot your life!



Have you ever felt like you need to reboot your spiritual life, life in general? Have you ever felt that you are just drained and running out of the hope that belongs to all children of God?

Last night I attended Chris Stefanik's Reboot conference. I needed it and frankly, if it's in your area, you need it. It's a spiritual booster shot. Go!

Chris Stefanik is a Catholic international speaker who heads up Real Life Catholic which is a non-profit that is dedicated to spreading the Best! News! Ever! Because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not just Good news you know, it's the Best News Ever! (MercyMe)

Chris puts into perspective the simplicity of our faith and how absurd the world has it in not believing in the One True God. It's a love story and all those upsets, suffering, disappointments, illnesses...well those are just a page in the Greatest Love Story ever told. And it's not a general love story like God loves the world. No! It's a love story between You and God.

When God created the world, He had You in mind. When God became a man, He had You in mind. When God suffered and died on the Cross, He had You in mind. And when He rose from the dead so that we wouldn't be mere "food for the worms" but true sons and daughters of God who would live in eternity, well, He had You in mind!

You!

God is a passionate lover who only wants your love in return. That's it. So simple.

And how do we love Him back? Well, to be completely honest, it is so simple that I just have to tell you that you can't love Him back unless you allow Him to love you first. 

Allow Him to love you. Then...

Love yourself.

Pray.

Share the faith.

Build good friendships.

and...Reboot. Deal with your past and know that it's all, (wounds, sins and all), been thrown into the abyss of His ocean of mercy and He has placed a sign there that says, "No fishing". That's it!

We were made for more. We were made for greatness and that greatness can only be found in God. It won't come from a career or a marriage. It will not come from material things nor degrees. It will not come from lovers or even experiences. It only comes from the One who created You. The One who loves you with a perfect love. It comes from the One who gave everything for You and waits for you.

  1. Thank you for this! I think what touched me the most is the part about our past being in the abyss of the ocean of God's mercy where he's put a no fishing sign. I can just picture it. Powerful!

    1. Isn't that beautiful? I remember hearing that once and I have never forgotten it. God is so good and we just cannot fathom His mercy!
