Yes, I am a Believer







I don't talk about God much but I know he's there.



He is here, there....everywhere.

We are all drawn to some type of higher power.



It is natural for us as humans to want something to believe in.

We need someone we can trust at all times.

We need someone we can call upon.

We need someone to hear our prayers.



That someone, that higher power is God.



God, Jesus, Christ, our Lord and savior.



So why do I deny him?

Why am I showing my children that I believe in nothing?



I have been going through my adult life thinking everything is perfect.



I thought if I lay low and mind my own business things would be good.

I thought if I don't send out any bad energy and love those closest to me I would remained blessed.



I know and feel that something is not right.

There is an emptiness.

Why? Because I long for that higher power.

I long for that spiritual relationship with Christ.



I have been denying him by omission.

When I think about it, it hurts.



I grew up in church. I mean, every church event no matter the time, we were there.

We even had daily family devotionals.



There was a time when I knew all the scriptures by heart.



Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6



I want that back. Not just for me.

I have 3 little minds that are blank spiritually.

They have a right to know Christ just as I once did.



I am going to stop saying I can't find a church or the churches here are too big.



I can start showing them that I believe...that I have faith simply with Christ centered daily devotionals.



We have to start somewhere and what better way than to begin at home.



You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:7

  1. Such a wonderful post… Thanks for sharing! I just may over TWEET about GOD at times! But I never know who it may help. But I try NOT to bounce on folks head or nothing. I just know all the good things that he has done for me and I’m GUILITY of praising The Most High in awkward places…

  3. I totally agree. I want to raise my son to believe in something highher -- GOD! I wasn't exactly raised in church, but managed to find one when I was in middle school. When my son was born, I took him to that same church that I found in middle school and was a member of for 11 years. But then something happened. I grew out of that church. So I've been spending time looking for another home church. I think I found it a few weeks ago. So...

  4. My girls definitely made me pursue Him even more. I did not grow up going to church all the time, but I did learn that God existed. I want more than what I was given for our girls. This year we participated in Community Bible Study. They also had classes for the kids. The girls also participated in AWANA {they chose to participate... I would not have forced it on them}. It was/is a blessing to hear the girls share their faith and how they process things.

  5. I love this post. Yes, we should start at home. I'm trying to instil that in my daughter. She goes to a Catholic school, so I guess that helps a great deal in her journey of faith.

  6. I love the honesty of this pot. I really don't expect anything less than honesty when it comes to you!

    I think many of us have that time when we kind of do our own thing. Mine was during college. I'm so happy I made my way back to Christ and I know you will too!

  7. Very uplifting. I have a confession...I don't pray with Princess. A big reason for that is that I don't get to put her to sleep every night (except weekends). But, that's no excuse. I need to get on it. Great post!
