Resurrection Anyone?

Whovil tressI had coffee with a dear friend last week. We have been having this once a month “coffee” for about 4 years and I prefer to call it an hour of introspection. I have watched my friend grow out of bounds with self love, introspection, and acceptance.

As we sat there talking, I realized that I had been privileged to witness a metamorphosis. I met (let’s call him Tom for this blog) Tom at the beginning of our Master’s degree program. He was loving, lively, and quite good looking. As I got to know him better, I found out he was a native Arizonian (quite unusual). He had grown up around Phoenix and had sprouted his roots physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially throughout the valley.

Tom had gone to Brophy College Preparatory and graduated from a local college. Over the years, he became a husband, father, and a successful business man. He was everything to everyone but himself. He was beginning to question his existence. Tom was entering into the most crucifying year of his life.

Through the year, I listened, prayed, and watched as Tom suffered. He tried to desperately change who he was. He was trying to be a person who he thought God wanted him to be. Tom did not think deep down that he was a person God wanted, liked, or even redeemed.

As the year went by, Tom kept looking for approval of who he was. Who he was intrinsically. God gave him the qualities he had, why wasn’t he owning them?

Why don’t we love ourselves and treat who we truly are as gifts from God?

One day Tom started to change. At first the change started on a physical level. He went to a trainer and lost a substantial amount of weight. Then, he moved onto the spiritual level. He spent a weekend on a retreat and came out with a few “Ah-Ha’s”. The real change though, came with time and within the reflective period he spent in meditation and prayer. I do not know to this day if he is in complete acknowledgment of the new person he has become but the change was evident physically, mentally, and spiritually.

He was resurrected. Christ did this and the Good News is: because Christ came back to life, we can too everyday. Everyday we have a chance to resurrect. Each day we have a brand new start to heal our body, our mind, and our soul. Every cell within us has the potential to be strong, vibrant and whole.

Everyday we can get up and say, “Thank you!” for giving your life so that we can live. His life essence is in every breath we take. It is in our blood, body, and soul.

This week, I invite you to resurrect. Resurrect because you can. Change the way you eat, think, workout, and LIVE. Enjoy today and love the life you have been given. Your life is so precious and you can make a difference. Make that difference and begin with yourself….

I deep love and acknowledgment for His Son…
