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.
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.
