Christian Lifestyle=Tough LifeYou know something
I'm getting real sick and tired of people saying that religion is for weak minded people. They obviously haven't tried it. Being a Christian has been a hard part of my life all my life. Being able to see something and believe it's there is one thing. But to believe in something that you can't see physically, that you can't touch. It's hard! And to not only believe in that unseen force, but trust that the said unseen force LOVES YOU, wants the best for YOU, wants to see YOU grow as a person, and wants YOU to TRUST in the ability that it has
It's HARD! I grew up Christian most of my life but I struggled back and forth going to church then falling out of it then going back and I just bounced around a lot unsure. Now that I'm older, 24, It's not any easier than it was when I was 10! God asks us to trust him when it comes to finances, healing, support, addiction freedom, anything and everything that could ever hold us down, God wants us to trust in Him that we w
Inspired by GodNever judge someone's strength in their faith. You may not see what happens behind closed doors, what they could be working on in private, what God's working on with them. Though YOU may not see their faith, their commitment to God, or the change they say they're working on, God does. God sees more than we ever will. It is not our place to judge other people's strength in their faith because we don't see their action(or inaction), we don't see their prayers, we don't see their walk with God, God does. Focus on your own walk, if you're going to think about someone's faith, it had better be how you could help them become stronger, or how strong they already are and how you want to be like them. Never let your mind think that someone's faith is weaker than yours, you don't see what God sees.
Are you? "oh, I didn't know you were religious.." stop " Oh, they are very religious too..." Stop "Are you studying religion in school?" STOP. please. stop. No religious rules, or people speaking to me, could have changed my heart of stone. I attacked others verbally who even mentioned God, I had a disdain for faith. His love changed me. His real, true love. I follow God as a desire to be in relationship with Him who set me free. I know He is always there. He is like gravity, I could have yelled and cursed Him all my life, it would not change the fact He is. The Lord is without beginning, and without end, infinite in every aspect, righteous, and loving. I understand now more than ever, it is not religion, it is a relationship. And I know some will read this, and not understand, or scoff, and that's ok... though it is hard for me to say that. For I want others to feel His love too. But a relationship with God is a choice, and some will turn away his pierced hands, saying "no
I am not 'normal' I would hardly consider it 'normal' to be a follower of Christ. People don't chase after God's heart as much anymore. Here we are in a vast desert of life, with a never ending well in front of us, and most are content to drink sand instead. It is a free gift offered to everyone, and the only thing you have to do is give your heart to Him, to love the One who loved you first. It's a steady process, no one is perfect overnight, but if you go after Him, He will not turn you down. It doesn't matter your race, gender, culture, sexuality, age, He offers it to every man and woman and child. However, if you do start to walk with Him, do not expect to go unchanged. A transformed heart is a true sign of God's work in your life. It's not an easy walk, but it is real and God's love is so amazingly beautiful. He never leaves, never stops loving, forgives freely, and always listens. Your feelings or emotions, and your situations do not govern whether or not He is there. When you cry, He does not sco
A True Christian . . . . A True Christian does not calls Christianity a religion, but a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. ( John 15:14-15, Hebrews 13:5, John 10:27-28, Proverbs 17:17, Job 5:19, Psalm 37:39) A True Christian does not do good deeds so that he/she can get to heaven (for through Jesus Christ, he has a place in heaven), but so that you can take care of you fellow man and to love one another. ( Romans 3:9-31, John 15:17, Luke 10:25-37, Ephesians 2:8-10) A True Christian does not condemn others for their sins for God did not sent his son to the world to condemn it, but to save it through him. ( John 3:17, Luke 6:37, 1 Peter 2:22) A True Christian sings, dances, and praises God not so that he/she can impress other people or God, but because he/she loves God and his son. ( Matthew 22:37-39) A True Christian speaks for those who can't speak for themselves. ( Proverbs 31:8-9) A True Christian does not hate people, but sins. For those
