Jesus said, “The one who does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.” You are the mother of Jesus, your neighbor and yourself… your new self. You are the Bride of Christ giving birth to the Body of Christ. The devil seeks to destroy you with a river of lies that are all one lie. But, in the wilderness, the earth opens her mouth and swallows the river. The lie is that you create God. And the Truth is that God creates you. In the wilderness my heart begins to see that I can’t make life happen, but Life is making me happen and I will give birth to Life. When I listen to the river of lies, I make a monster. When I listen to the Word, I give birth to Life.
