I don't talk about my belief in God very often. I don't believe that I am the
best person to discuss God's love.
I am not the kind of person who has Bible verses memorized nor do I
know all of the stories and parables in the Bible. That is not to say that
I have not read the Bible, because I have. I am just not confident enough
in my study to discuss it.
I took a graduate level course once titled "The Rise of Christianity".
While it was very interesting from a historical perspective, I did not
enjoy reading about the politics of religion. I do not enjoy arguing about
which church follows Biblical teaching most accurately. I won't discuss
Catholics versus Protestants.
I just try to keep my faith simple and do two very important things.
I love the Lord with all my heart and try to treat others as I wish to be
treated. I make mistakes all of the time and He knows it and we talk
about it. Well, I talk and He listens. I am getting better about listening
to Him and He is so patient with me. It has not always been an easy path
for me. I have veered off the path more than once, but I have also
learned that I am never happy when I do.
So now I just put my faith in His hands and let Him guide me. It's a
simple little path yet the journey is filled with a sense of calm and
peace and joy. I happily walk this path by faith.
