My Faith...

Some people recently wrote about me on a forum, mentioning the article to the left "what to do if you're broke and in need".  They loved the article but hated my advice to pray for what we need.  It bothered them to acknowledge God, although many of their signature lines and comments were actually quotes from the Bible.  Strange isn't it?

I want you to know that I don't apologize for my faith, nor do I HAVE that faith because I'm not intelligent enough to figure out how to help myself without relying on "a deity."

I have this faith because God revealed Himself to me, personally, (IN PERSON), and filled our lives with miracle healings and rescues.  He became the central point of our lives and the most meaningful thing in it, BECAUSE we found out that He is REAL and He loves us unconditionally.  

What I seek for my personal life is to walk WITH Him, separate from the world, different from the majority, and totally submitted to His will.

You don't have to believe it, and I don't "push" my faith on anyone.  In fact, I don't believe in doing that.  The Bible says the only people who can come to Him are those who are called, drawn by the Holy Spirit.  

If I can't interest you in God by my joyful spirit alone, I won't interest you in God with my speeches.

Live the life you choose!  If you are righteous, remain righteous, if you reject God, continue to reject God.  Don't even give Him a second thought, unless you are the kind of person who wants to know the truth, and wants to be set free.

He who seeks, finds.  He who truly wants to talk with God, will.

We have absolute freedom to live the life we choose, to choose our paths, our goals and our ends.  You can even thank God for that!
