We've been going through Colossians at 5pm. The other week the person leading it got us to write something for ourselves that she then sent a couple of days into the week. Here's what I wrote to myself coming out of a gospel reflection on the beginning of Colossians 3.
It's a mystery
It's a paradox
You can't make it happen
But you can trust that it has happened
It is happening
It will happen
Your life is hid with Christ in God
Be true to that life
Much of your life is not in line with that reality
Live in your new reality
Put on your new self
Which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.
