If the topic of faith in God offends you, perhaps you might want to sit this post out. I hope you will endure. It is not that I have anything profound to say, it is just something I want to say.
On my “About” page, I describe myself in many ways-wife, mother, crafter, etc…and a woman of faith. I started thinking-what does this actually mean to me? Like most people I have faith that the sun will come up tomorrow, that I will get in my car and most likely make it from point A to point B, and in general that things I know to be true will likely remain that way.
This might be where we part company (although I hope not). I believe in God, in Jesus, the Bible-yep the whole nine yards.
So what does a woman of faith mean to me? It means that I try to live my life based on loving one another, to be honest, follow the rules, be a good person, do the right thing…just like most folks-ya think? Absolutely!! But…I also believe that Jesus was sent by God, born as man, died on a cross, and rose again on the third day. I believe in The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. I believe that He died to save mankind by showing such grace to us all if only we would ask-and believe. I know that He guides my life, hears my prayers, and forgives me (because I am most certainly not perfect).
Whew!! How do I know this to be true? Faith. For me it is that simple. Yes, I go to church (not necessary), belong to a Bible study (not required), read my Bible (encouraged), and a daily devotional (optional). I do it because I want to, I want to learn, keep my faith strong, live the life that I was called to live….and maybe…just maybe… be an inspiration to others.
OK…..I am not turning my blog into a platform, but since I am so willing to share my favorite recipes, goals, projects, and any other thing that pops into my mind, I felt I wanted to share a deeper part of me.
A woman of faith-
just the biggest part of who I am.
