Treadmill Treats Monday Message
Why I believe what I believe
Since I started this blog four years ago I decided that on Monday’s I would write Monday Message. It would be about what I leaned Sunday from church but from my perspective.
Yes, I do say things about my faith during the week as my faith is me and I am my faith so no I couldn’t write this blog without it being weaved into it.
I have ran into a lot of people that said I talk to much about my faith, people that said I am scaring people off and I quote “With all my God talk”
I have been asked if I’ve become a “Holy roller” I have even had people questioned my faith telling me I wasn’t “Christian enough”
See you can’t please everyone either I am too much or not enough but this is not their journey, it’s mine and mine alone.
I can’t live to please others, I’ve spent too many years trying to do that and guess what? They are never happy and never will be and you just end up burnt out trying.
No, I speak of my faith on the off chance that someone out there is reading this, someone is in a bad place, has hit rock bottom, can’t see the light maybe they are reading this and can see themselves and think if she did it, I can do it.
Maybe I can talk someone off the ledge and show them what a year can change, what blind faith can do, what stepping out with only his safety net can do for you.
I am here on the off chance that some women in a abusive relationship happens to come across my blog and thinks I can be happy too if I leave. Someone on the verge of suicide can see that I was there once oh hell twice and yet I held on and look at how amazing things turned out to be.
I write and speak of my faith because I know where it’s taken me, how it’s got me through the darkest times of my life and I want others to feel this.
Look I don’t care if your Christian, Buddhist, Jewish or Muslim. I don’t care what “God” You believe in as long as you believe in a higher power, something or someone greater than yourself that you can call out to, believe in and have faith with.
This is not about me preaching to you my beliefs, I am only here to tell you what works for me, that’s all. If you believe or not, is it up to you.
Sometimes I think I am here just talking to myself while I write this blog but then I get a sign, a message from someone asking me how I got to this amazing place of peace and joy. I get a call asking me to help them, speak to them or tell me that my words helped them and yes, it makes it all worth it.
See this is my purpose, this is my God given gift, to touch people, to share my testimony with others, to help others.
This is the way I get to do that, to share what I know and hey if you don’t like my path…your more than welcome to find your own. If you don’t like all my “God” talk believe me there are plenty of other blogs out there to read. Delete me, block me, unfriend me but I will continue to do me in spite of it.
I never sugar coat anything, I always say I am not Willy Wonker, I give it to you real. Will it be easy? Oh hell no, you will fall and fail, you will think “I thought if I gave over my life to God it would be perfect”
Please…. then you haven’t read my blogs, it will be harder, you will still cry but it will teach you what it means to give up worry, stress, to believe in something you can’t see, something bigger than you through the storms.
You will find peace and joy but it will take all of you to hold on to it. But once you have you will do anything to keep it, believe me nothing will become as important as your relationship with your higher being…for me it’s God….
So today my friends, I leave you with this, this is what has gotten me through, my God, my faith, my belief and my church and my church family. All of this has chanced my life as I could never imagined it could be and I will spend the rest of my life thanking my God.
A lifetime praising his name and telling others of my journey would never be enough. If you want to reach out to me I am always here, I can be reached by message, calls or emails but I will always take the time to reach out to help.
See the gratitude, the peace and the joy I feel each and every day is why I believe what I believe….
