I believe in God, I believe in the Bible. I believe that Jesus died for me (and for you!). I pray, I read the Bible. I am teaching my daughter to pray and teaching about God. I have FAITH and I BELIEVE. I just do not feel the need to go to church.
This morning I was up early, Hannah was still sleeping. I had laundry in the wash and in the dryer. I was just enjoying some quiet time. I decided to see what news or other interesting shows might be on. Well there wasn't much let me tell you! But I did see Joel Osteen on so I put it on and opened a blank word document so I could take some notes if anything struck me. His message was on 'A Resurrected Life'. Basically living life with the mentality that life is too short to play a victim.
A few things that he said struck a chord with me and I will share with you what and why...
- You Are Not Defined By Your Past; You Are Prepared By Your Past
- It Didn't Happen TO You; It Happened FOR You
I hope this helps some of you understand where I am coming from. I know we are all at different points in our faith and our relationships, but I think that no matter how long we have been friends or even if you don't know me at all, I wanted to share where I am in my life, maybe it will help you, maybe it won't and that is okay too.
