This page is here in case you read something in one of my blog posts that makes you wonder what my beliefs are. (It’s also very possible that what I believed when I wrote some posts is not the same thing I believe now. And what I believe and write now very well may not be the same thing I believe in five years. I’m okay with that.)
WHAT I BELIEVE
I believe God is the source of life and love and that God has me on a journey to discover more about him. I have believed in God since I was seven. Maybe even before that. And though my faith has gone through some testing and fluidity over the last four or five years, I know that I don’t do life well if I don’t have faith in God. So that is where I start.
From there…I guess I’d say it’s a work in progress for me. My faith is Under Construction and I’m okay with that. I’m seeking God’s wisdom daily and I trust that he has a plan for me.
Jesus is recorded as saying, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all you soul and with all your mind.” And “Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22: 37 & 39) This is pretty simple. Not easy, mind you. But simple. I think we complicate things when we don’t need to. So my goal is to continually be learning how to better love God and my neighbor. (Incidentally…my neighbor is not just the person that lives next door…it’s anyone I come in contact with.) And I think if I focus on those goals I’ll have plenty of work to do for a very long time.
