The spiritual walk is difficult. Getting your spirit cleansed and keeping it right is an ongoing, never-ending process that requires supernatural balance, focus and support. However, it doesn’t require removal from the world.
Too often the Christian journey is understood simply in terms of becoming like God. While this is an essential component, if we only emphasize this aspect of it, we are likely to develop a spirituality that deemphasizes our humanity. The goal of the Christian spiritual journey is not to become less human and more divine; it is to become more fully human.
Reading that passage brought one question to mind, a question I imagined God asking me – asking us all: Can I love you?
I’m a beggar. Are you?
Some people beg for love. Others beg for the opportunity to love in hope of reaping such devotion. I used to beg for love by offering love.
When I began blogging, my only intent was to entertain and promote. However, as I have reread and edited this collection, I am truly humbled by the message God is giving you through me. I am blessed by the amount of cleansing and lifting He has done within me. Some stories may seem very un-Christian, in fact maybe the whole collection may cause you to question my “Christianity”.
