What I Believe

I was fortunate to grow up in a family that went to church and loved Jesus. I am blessed with an earthly mother and father that taught me about the love of God and who prayed for me and with me.

As a child, I received Jesus as my personal Savior at a young age. By the time I was out of High School, though, my relationship with God had grown distant. I looked to the approval of man, instead of my relationship with my Heavenly Father. I was that prodigal Son found in the verses of Luke 15.

For years I did things my way. I turned by back on God but He never turned his back on me. For years I struggled with anxiety and mild depression all because I thought I needed to be in control. By the time I was 27 I realized I was not doing a very good job at trying to live a fulfilling life. The things of this world, didn’t satisfy…they never do for very long.

After marrying my husband, He accepted Christ as His personal Savior and I recommitted my life to the One who created me. I am learning that even though there are trials and tribulations- He is there and He will never leave me. Through anxiety, depression, miscarriage and seasons of change….He is still there. He will never leave me or forsake me. In fact, it is through those times that I feel closest to Him.

I am learning to ask Him the hard questions and wait for His answers.

I am learning to live this life with my eyes toward Heaven…my real home.

With all that said……

I believe in the Trinity. Father. Son. Holy Spirit.

I believe that the Bible is His love letter to us and that all the answers we have (in this life) can be found in the pages of His book.

I believe that God loves each of us just as we are but He loves us SO much that He refuses to leave us that way. He is changing us from glory to glory!

I believe I am a sinner…… saved only by the grace of God.
