This tweet made her laugh.
Laughing made her think of him.
Thinking of him made her happy.
Being happy made her grateful.
Being grateful made her humble.
Feeling humble made appreciate
God’s grace and forgiveness.
Accepting God’s forgiveness
made it okay to love him.
Loving him, truly opened up her soul…
Who knew one tweet could be so powerful!

My problem with religion

I believe in God.

I believe in creation.

I believe that once the creation process was complete on the 6th day, God rested on the 7th day and kept it Holy (and so should we) [still working on that myself].

I believe we were created with the ability to evolve.

I believe God spoke to man face to face in the days of Adam in the garden of Eden.

I believe man could no longer look upon God directly after sin because the protection which ‘sinless purity’ gave was gone.

I believe that God, giving the life of His only son to save ours, meant that even after man messed up, God still saw something worth saving. He still saw value in His creation. He still had a lot to teach us. He still wanted to be close to us. So He gave us the Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us, and nurture our spirit (if we allow Him to — we have a choice).

This all seems like a lot of work on God’s end, doesn’t it? What’s so special about us humans? Why not just toss the whole big mess and start over? Because who’s to say the new creation wouldn’t mess up too! See, we’re human, mortal, fallible, and God is, well, God — the opposite of what we are. Yet, He Loves us unconditionally and to me that’s huge!!

Back when Jesus was on earth, ministering, healing, teaching etc, the only criteria to be His follower was to believe in Him (and His father, God) and be baptized. Baptism symbolized washing away the old “you” and being born again in Christ Jesus (practicing the ways of Jesus/God). That’s it! Nowhere in the Bible have I seen (still looking) or heard mention (that I can remember) of belonging to a particular religion to be a follower of Jesus/God. Today, however, there are so many religions, with each claiming to be the ‘right one’, that I’ve lost all interest in being a part of any religion AT ALL!!! All I want is to read God’s word and let that me my guide.

There are parts of the scripture however, that speak of communion, fellowship with others, worshiping together, gathering together, and the Church. So how does one have “church” without religion?

Most religions operate like this:
– to be a member one must accept the religious beliefs of that sect.
– once you accept (are indoctrinated) you have to partake in whatever ritual /procedure they deem necessary to be a member.
– to maintain membership one must follow the rules of the religion or have membership taken away (dis-fellowshiped/ excommunicated ).
– the members actively seek to increase their numbers in part, because Jesus instructed us to spread the word of His love to others, but also in part because nowadays religion is a money making business (shady pastors live lavishly while parishioners are being disillusioned — the focus no longer on the word but on advertising to attract members).

So how does one comply with God’s word to fellowship and commune with others without partaking in a specific religion? Well, I’m still trying to figure that one out.

I do enjoy reading posts on the personal stories of faith and how God is still alive and well in the lives of many of you in WordPress land. I also tune into klove.com and continue to be blown away by how that radio station touches the lives of so many people around the world as they play inspirational music daily. I’d love to be more passionate about my study of the Bible and would love to meet like minded people who seek to delve into the word with me. There is much I still don’t understand, much I still need to learn, and there’s an uneasiness inside me that needs to have a fire lit and raging for God. At the moment the sticks are rubbing together and sparks are flying here and there, but there’s something wrong with my kindling. It’s either wet or green so I need to give it more time or replace it with the right stuff. I need that fire. I need it to burn hot. I need it to warm me from the inside out. I need it to make me glow with happiness. I need it to be my guide. And most of all, I want to have so much of it that others can have some too.

What religion will I be a part of? None. But I’ll be happy to commune and study with anyone who feels the same. Who will baptise me? I guess we can all share in that task. After all, it was John who baptised Jesus.

Matthew 3:13-17New International Version (NIV)

The Baptism of Jesus

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.

14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.

16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him.

17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

May these words lift from my lips to God’s ears, and may He guide me in the right path. Amen.

Good morning

Mornings are great
when someone made you
wake up with a smile

Unglued

The way he looks at her
Makes her weak in the knees.
This is all so messy,
So unlike her,
But so very wonderful!

And even if it were to end today,
She would cherish these memories
For as long as her heart would let her
Because he made her happy again
When she thought it was not possible.

He’s made her come unglued…

Time to forget

He made her remember
How awesome love feels
He made her forget
All the others who came before

Lately,  she’s …

Forgetting she needs sleep,
Forgetting she needs to eat,
Forgetting how to speak,
Forgetting what day it is,
Forgetting her appointments,
Forgetting that a world exists outside their bubble.
She’s smitten, and it feels great!!!

Fate

She’s drawn to him

And though she is afraid to feel

(Knowing he may not be around for long)

She still feels pulled in his direction

And she doesn’t mind.

For he’s made her smile

A lot more lately than she expected to

And it feels great!

*

Prayers still get answered,

And his being there is proof of that.

So she has chosen to not stand

in the way of fate and what it brings,

especially since it brought him right to her door.
