A walk in the Path of Jesus Christ

Starting a walk.

The world is a far from easy place to begin a walk in Christ. I mean, most of the things that God asks of us in the bible are what is considered odd and out of place in our modern society.

Does that make it hard? Yeah. Does it make your life trying, Yeah, but is it worth it? Most definitely.

Why? Because we'll only be here a short time before we're intended to go off into eternity, and eternity is a lot longer then the 80 some-odd years we'll have here on Earth. I heard once that a Christian was having a conversation with an atheist at one point, and he said "Okay, if you're wrong, and I'm right, then I lived my life being good, and giving. If you're wrong, and I'm right... Well, we know where you'll be headed."

It seems to me to not only be the right thing to do, but it's the good thing to do. I enjoy the fact that we can drop all of our cares on worry onto the Lord. For some reason, that came off easy to me. I was able to easily throw all my cares onto the Lord. Why? Well, I had a whole lot of them, let's just say that, and once I realized I didn't have to worry, I was totally grateful. Especially when the problems started becoming fixed.

It may sound like craziness, but it's the thing that lead me to Christ in the first place. The fact that I'd never have to worry sounded like a safe bet considering I was facing an ex girlfriend who I felt wanted to take my children away from me and create a new man as their father, being jobless, loneliness... Believe me, the list goes on. Perhaps at some point I could continue on with the things that drove me crazy, but I pray that this is enough for now. Lord willing, I'll post again tomorrow or the day after.

God bless,

Matthew 6:33, 34 = But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
