It stems from something that has always bothered me, and when I Google it, as usual, it is so very hard to find out an article where someone does not mention sin. In fact, it is impossible to bring up anything in regards to the self without bringing up our sin nature. Most Christians know … Continue reading The Burning Question-Does God Really Like Me?
It is the million dollar question Christians wonder, but from a unique perspective I can honestly say, I want to know what He thinks of me personally. Meaning what does He think of my art? my writing? The fears I have? The deepest thoughts? desires? Feelings? Would he be upset at me, and pick apart … Continue reading What Would Jesus Really Think of ME?
Abnormal weather day of 55 degrees and sunny at this end of February. So, I did what I love to do-I went down to my sacred creek below my house, and told God to connect with me there if he could. I enjoyed the sunlight, took photos, listened to some wonderful songs. Several things happened. … Continue reading There is that word again-Surrender, serious part of the Christian life
I don't know about you, but I have felt like a freak in the faith ever since 2015 when I received Christ. If I could be anything in the world but a Christian, that would be me. I am not one of those people that "get it", and feel stuff all the way down, or … Continue reading The Christian Outcast, Is This You?
I shudder at having to tell anyone my testimony, I am actually ashamed of it. It is the truth. I worry how others will see me. Taking a deep breath, and here I go... I was raised a Christian as a child, but never accepted Christ. We went to a Wesleyn church and one day … Continue reading My Testimony
One of the promises I made myself this year was to be very honest with God to the point of humilation. I have always been ashamed anyway of my feelings whenever I pray because I have too many issues with Him, so I figured I would say what I could and the rest He already … Continue reading Raw Unfiltered You, Are You Hiding It Christian?
There is a lesson I am learning this year. I told God before he New year, I was going to be more honest than ever before in all ways. What that means is I lay more of the ugly down and pray whether I want to or not. Second, I also acknowledge inside when something … Continue reading Don’t Pretend With God
I am a big fan of Author Bonnie Gray, of: Finding Spiritual Whitespace, and thanks to her work I have learned that God is not far at all. She teaches us to enjoy everyday moments and invite God into them. From what I see and hear from most Christians is to try to be perfect, … Continue reading Christian: Stop Trying So Hard, do this instead!
I haven't been to the creek lately, I have been sick with a cold in bed, staring at the sun from far away, and being oddly sensitive. I took time to watch some Tornado documentaries and shocked myself at how much it scared me. I was brought to tears multiple times. I watched one more … Continue reading Digging for Hope
Conflict is happening again. Same problems months ago, no money, irritated and impatient people around me. Once again, I went to God in prayer, and laid everything down for him to take, told him I was waiting on answers like before. Months ago, in February, I went to the field, and sobbed helplessly begging God … Continue reading Don’t let me lose this…
