Breathe Deidre, Breathe…..
My post get posted on Facebook. Some of my church members read it. I know how word gets out about things but I’ve decided the most important thing for me is to be pray get my answers from God and to be true to myself. Always. No matter what because I like who I have become as a woman. So with that being said I’m about to go against something I know we have all been taught.
Only one person who ever walked this Earth lived without sin, that was Jesus Christ.
Everyday we have thoughts we can’t always control. Even though we pray about a situation and go back and think about it, we are committing a sin. Looking at a cute guy, a sin. Talking about someone, a sin. Little white lies, a sin. Telling people you love them and really don’t, a sin. Gossip, a sin.
Think of the images you see on TV everyday, think about the emotions they invoke in us, sometimes it makes not like a character and talk about how much we dislike them. Sin.
So can we actually live without sin? What about the times that the emotions are so built up in us that things we wouldn’t normally say in our Christian state comes out?
I am very guilty of this and this is why I say God isn’t through with me yet. I ask for His forgiveness and pray that if ever in that situation again I will do things differently. (I do have a bit of a temper problem, I blame it on my dad).
We live in a world today where I completely understand that sometimes it’s better to walk alone than in a crowd. But we all make mistakes from time to time no one is perfect past, present or future.
It scares me because I don’t think I will ever be that perfect. I don’t think I wil every be that good. I wonder wil me trying the best that I can still get me into the Kingdom or Heaven or am I just a lost cause. I’m quite sure I’m not the only who feels that way.
No one can say what God’s “criteria” will be when we get the the Holy Gates. I know and I’ve read that it’s not the works we do that gets us into Heaven it’s by our Faith.
I’m not saying go out and do whatever it is you want to do. But when you keep your Faith you keep the things that you feel please God close to your heart. You may fall but get back up. God’s watching.
Peace and Love,
