What I Believe

Dang, that's sort of intense.

I have struggled with the definition of my faith for years now. I knew what I believed, I just wasn't sure what to call it since it didn't align with any of the mainstream religions. I've thought about writing more about my faith several times but always decide against it. I don't want to worry anyone and I definitely do not want anyone to tell me what I believe is wrong and try to convince me to feel otherwise. I am respectful enough of other people's religions and believes, it's sad that I cannot trust them to be the same.

I believe in God. I believe in goodness. I believe in love. I believe in light. These things are the foundation of my faith. My faith is my own. It is deep and it is strong. I pray and I know my prayers are heard and answered. I acknowledge and recognize all the blessings that God has given to me (sometimes not until later). I believe that we are imperfect beings and that God does not expect us to be perfect but to be wonderfully human. I believe that God wants us to be happy and to love each other. I do not witness by my mouth, but I try to witness by my life.

And that is about all I have to say about that.

  1. Love this post! I agree with you completely. I trust in God- but I don't trust man's interpretation of God's word - therefore organized "religion" makes me a little uncomfortable.
