Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
When I am con-formed, (Latin: formed-with), with Jesus by our Creator God, who sees each one as son, as daughter, I am gently shaped and fashioned to be like Christ. As I submit to this new creation within, and through, my mind, soul and body, some habits are cut away, some mind-sets transformed, my spirit is freed and made strong, and my flesh stops leading the show to humbly follow and express the truth of God Saves (“Jesus”) and God With Us (“Emmanuel”). Lord God, conform me to the image of your Son, so that all things might work together for good within and through your love in me.
I am the light of the world, says the Lord; whoever follows me will have the light of life. (John 8: 12)
“Seek God in all things, and you shall find God by your side.”
St. Peter Claver
