God, Present Moment, When she became the fire

I’m Coming Out

I’ve probably had way too much coffee, and half priced Easter chocolate to be writing this. That is my disclaimer.

About a month ago, I was standing at the counter of our local store, waiting to checkout. A more mature gentleman was standing behind me, and I turned around to wish him a ‘Good Morning.’ He said, “Is it?” I said, “Well, God woke me up to another day, so yes.” He looked at me with disgust and said, “Oh, you must think you have it easy then.”

That really pissed me off, but I was nice. I smiled at him with my most gleaming smile and said, “No Sir. There isn’t anything easy about that.” treatsWhen people ask me what faith, or religion I am, I just say, “I love God. We have a fascinating relationship.” Then comes the awkward moment. They don’t know how to respond. I just want one person to exclaim, “SAME!!!”, as we bump knuckles, or high five or whatever is cool nowadays.

It hasn’t happened yet, but that man made me ponder. Following God, and doing what He wants me to do, is not easy. It’s much easier to ignore all signs He gives me, and just keep forging straight ahead. Until I wake up in the dessert dying of thirst.

God is my life. He gave me life, and I am honored He wants to use me through writing. I’m different though. You won’t see a bunch of scriptures in my posts. I’m not gonna spoon feed you. You’re a grown being, or at least you can read, cuz you’re reading this, so I feel confident you can read your own Bible.

As God followers we really do need to grow a pair. My daughter will tell you I have balls, but you haven’t seen that side of me. It has become hidden over time. I might tell you some painful truth, or you may gasp at my language. “She can’t be a Christian! She cusses!” God showed me this box I had placed myself in, and I’m comin’ out!

Now is your chance to duck, and run. There is nothing easy about following God, but He does make my life easier. If I scare you off, I apologize in advance. I’m not scared anymore.

  1. God wants a spirit filled follower who is not faint of heart and who will go forth and tell others of Him. I applaud your honesty. As a fellow God lover, I’ll gladly join you in the “coming out swinging” cuz I ain’t been scared in a long time. When God’s got your back, what could you possibly be scared of?
