    What I Am

    I am imperfect, but my God loves me for eternity. I am not REQUIRED to do anything but accept the fact that Jesus Christ is the one and only son of God who came down to earth in the flesh to save us all. Yes, my religion is often seen as hypocritical, but just like any other...

    What Is Love

    Love is slow to anger, it holds no record of wrongs. It forgives instantly, it goes the extra mile. Love can bloom flowers just from the source, it's tender, kind, and merciful. It accepts with no questions pondered. Love is open arms with a true spirit reaching out to this lost...

    He Doesn't Forgive Then Just Forget

    My recent experience has been a wonderful one. I became a christian in 2009 and in the last few months, a lot has changed. I have moved city, quit my job, started university, moved house 4 times (in as many months) and I've had health issues. During this time I've strayed from...

    Most times when we have a talent.

    God seems to want us to sacrifice it in favor of obedience to him. Only then does the gift thrive. Under him first then out to others second is his order. :).

    If Christianity was a lie,

    I'd rather live life a lie. I am content and happy because of my faith and wouldn't have it any other way. I don't need much more that god gives me. I am always provided with exactly what I need. I am so thankful and full. Thank you god!!:)

    A disciple of Jesus period!

    But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. (1 John 2:5, 6 KJV)

    I heard a line the other day

    and it is so true. "Do not try to change the world, start with your own family and spread from there". Is your family in order? People will watch what you do as a "Christian" make sure you give them something to watch or they will never hear from your mouth!
