Just the Way You Are

I am a born again Christian and it’s just as simple as that, my robes have been washed clean. I believe that Jesus died for our sin, I believe in one God even though there are three parts of Him. Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.

(Revelation 22:14)

This blog of mine, it is my way of sorting out life. When this little blog was born, however, it had nothing to do with God or Jesus or Christian faith. It’s conception was a way for me to feel a sense of community with other writers, as I have been working on a memoir about my caregiving experience.

Except the blog evolved into a journal about my spiritual journey.

A few of my loved ones have asked me, “What’s up with all the God stuff on your blog?”. These loved ones of mine are agnostic and maybe even atheist, which makes no difference to me. I love them just the way they are, I’d love it if all of my friends could feel this God thing I am feeling. But that doesn’t matter, I love them all just the way they are; no matter what religion or belief system or non-religion.

I have the passion for Christ and there are no strings attached. If you ask me whats up with my God thing, I’ll let you know. I’m not going to sit there and preach, even though I’d like to. I’d like to reach out and pull those that don’t believe down my path.

That’s just not going to happen for very many people today, there has been too much damage done. The church, immoral Christian hypocrites, whoring out Jesus for political gain, and the list could go on and on and get really very grim. Grim, to say the least. There have been insanely atrocious acts done by bad people to others in the name of God.

This blog is not my attempt to evangelize or persuade anyone to agree with my spiritual beliefs. Being born again is a really strange sensation. I don’t look different but I feel different, and that’s a really good feeling. Feeling different in this way is so…good. I am grateful to God for guiding me to this path I’m on.

And that’s all I have to say about that (in my best Forest Gump voice).
