My Walk By Faith



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.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  12. Such a beautiful post. I want to hug you after reading that. :) I feel the same way about my faith. I don't know many verses by heart, and my husband knows way more Bible stories than I do that I have to ask him about sometimes, but the main thing is keeping God at the center of everything and simply taking the time to talk to Him. I worry way too much and am constantly questioning His plan, but the funny thing is, my life always ends up being completely different than how I would have planned it and yet I'm happier despite unexpected events thrown at us all the time. If my life turned out the way I had wanted it to, I wouldn't be nearly as happy. Just proves God knows what He's doing, right? Good things fall apart so better things can fall together. He knows exactly what we need.
