What I Believe

5 Jun

I believe the Holy Bible is the word of God, but not the complete works. The Bible is the primer of life and is the guide to how we are to be living our life.

I believe in life! But we were given free will to make our own choices and it is not my right to tell someone else how they should or should not live theirs. Many things, like abortion, are not covered in the Bible and if we look into history it was common place in the early days. Jesus said what we do for the least of them, we do also for Him. My choice is life.

I believe that when you take on a pet, you also take responsibility for it’s life and welfare. It is your responsibility to care and feed it, keep it free from harm and from harming itself for it knows no better. Putting a pet in a position to hurt itself is just irresponsible on your part. I believe a pet is one of the ‘least’ that Jesus talked about.

I believe in miracles and that they happen everyday somewhere in this world. All we have to do is look at the advances in medicine to see this is true. But medicine is just one place to look to see the miracles of God. I watch the seeds I sow grow into flowering plants and towering fruit trees. I also see miracles in the birth of small birds and watch as they leave the nest for the first time. Miracles happen everyday around here.

I believe we are a product of the choices we made throughout our life, good and bad. I believe that even when we make a bad choice, God will show us a way to make things right, if we trust Him.

I believe that everyone put in my path, was put there for a reason and that I am responsible to learn that reason. Sometimes it is to offer help, sometimes to ask for help, but always to advance the Glory of God.

I believe, as a Christian, I am a living example of God and everyone I meet is looking for me to be that example. I believe I may be the only Bible some people may ever see.

I believe in unconditional love and in forgive and forget. When you can forgive others for their transgressions and put them behind you, I believe you have just opened the door to unconditional love. I know it is hard to forget a hurt, especially when it breaks your heart, but I also know when you let it go, you feel the freedom to really enjoy life again. Why carry that burden for the person who hurt you in your heart? Life is too short for that!

I believe there is more to life as we know it today and the more we love each other the more life we will see!

What do you believe? Courteous comments always welcome.

     There is no greater power in heaven or earth than pure, unconditional love. The nature of God, the unseen intelligence in all things, which comes to the material world and is center of both physical and spiritual plane, is best described as pure unconditional love. This “God love”, for lack of a better term, is the soul to which we are always connected because we are localized extensions of that love.  
    Thank you Ed for the doors you opened for me, this I know and honestly believe.

        I have found that love is the only thing that really matters. My view of the world is upside down, love is the only thing of value that I have found. Love is something that can’t be taught, it comes naturally from the heart and is so abundant when we let it go, it’s GOD’s way of saying, I told you so. “In a new command I give you: Love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another.” From the book of John 13:34 NIV

      Thank you Adrienne! I was hoping to get more comments from people on what they believe, but with all the people reading the post not many took the time to share their feelings.
      To me life is all about love for each other. I am finding it is not a popular concept for greed has taken control of the world. What a loss!

      Thank you again for commenting.

      Ed
