    “The secret to life is to die before you die. How do you relate to that sentence?” I relate to that sentence because I want to die well. I want to live fully, love deeply, and leave a legacy. When I have reached the end of my race, I want to hear well done good and faithful servant; you have fought the good fight, you have kept THE FAITH (2 Timothy 4:7). In order to do that I have to die and be resurrected with Christ to a new life hidden in Him.

    “Do you have a sense of your false self? Your true self?” I am beginning to understand this more fully. My false self is the self I have created, which also includes a religious false self. My true self is the one God created for me in Christ Jesus. It is the man He created me to be. Where I struggle is fully living into my true self. What I am learning is that the pathway is a loving union with God that involves being and doing. My true self flows out of this relationship not through any efforts of my own. Lord let it be so with me!
