    This Is What You Call A Revelation

    I’m listening to a Joyce Meyer podcast after dinner this evening, as I usually do, and the podcast is part 3 of a 3-part series. Now, I say “as I usually do”, but it’s important to note that I really felt led to listen to this last podcast of hers at this particular time...

    Not That I Have Anything Against Going

    I believe God can communicate to us in many ways. Church is one way but there are many others' too. Although I like going to church, because of other factors, I am just unable to but I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

    Awakened To A Nightmare

    I've finished reading "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin and I just can't stop thinking about it. I can vividly remember the lines I've quoted and posted in tumblr. It really bothers me because the lines I've quoted are mostly what the main character thinks and feels and that is...

    Don't Know Why I Can't Commit to a Church

    I'm committed to God.  I study the bible, meditate on His word (I really do meditate) His actions, His legacy so to speak.  Then why can I not be committed to a local church.  I've gone to 5 in the last few years, more off than on.  I blame a lot of it on...

    Not One and the Same

    I hate when people ask me if I go to church and when I say no they then assume that I don't believe in God... or that I can't believe in God! I'm sorry this to me is ignorant... and they just seem to find me. I have to wonder if somewhere on me a religious person hasn't stamped...

    Your Spirituality Should Be a Choice

    I've studied many religions through high school and college and every religion has a different way of worshipping.  Does this mean that any one religion is more right or wrong than another in the way they worship?  I don't believe this to be the case.  I was raised...

    I Don't Know Anymore.

    I come from a very anti religious family.  They don't hate religion or anything, but they don't believe in it either.  I've never admitted that I believe in God, and am almost ashamed to say I do.  My head tells me there cant be a God, my heart tells me there is...

    I have not been to church

    since May of this year. I used to attend church regularly, but I stopped going because I felt that the church I was attending was not feeding me spiritually. I'll admit that I'm more of a spiritual person than religious. I would not be able to be happy and strive each day if I...

    A God I Can Call My Own

    I grew up mormon, and I turned hardcore LDS when I was 14, because I prayed and had a powerful experience.  Basically, I started feeling like I was on fire and felt more joy than I had ever experienced (in immediate answer to my prayer), and I felt like God had manifested...

    Was A Member Of One For 16 Years

    I've visited a few others since leaving that one but I've come to the conclusion that I should allow the Holy Spirit guide me to where I should be.  Maybe I should be a member of a group or maybe I don't need one.  The Lord knows who belong to him and that is his body...

    Just Not For Me

     Honestly, I can't stand church. I mean, I think it's good for some people and hey, go for it, but it's not for me. I hate the idea of it, I guess. Let's go gather once-two-ten times a week and cry, laugh, share our stories about Jesus...? Umm... no, I'll keep my experiences...
