I’ve been hiding something from you guys. That’s right- for fear of coming across as a bible beater or fear that you’ll find me to be pushy or judgemental I’ve kept my love of Christ more on the down low. Sure, I may have mentioned in passing in a YouTube video that prayer has helped me deal with my struggles. But it’s so much more than that. I feel that since my religion is such a HUGE part of my life now I have to allow it to work itself into every aspect of my life- blog included.
This doesn’t mean that my blog is changing- it’s not going to turn into a bunch of posts about Jesus. It just means that topics involving my faith are not off limits. I respect all religions and your beliefs. If mine do not align with yours I understand and just ask that you don’t read if it offends you.
Part of the reason I want to share how much my born again Catholic lifestyle has changed my life is also because it could have an impact on others out there. If me sharing my journey with the Lord inspires someone out there to explore their faith then that can help them have a relationship with Christ and have an effect on their entire eternity. Such a beautiful thing.
So you may be asking how and why I have become so deeply religions. The answer is that after going through a very hard period I didn’t know what to do other than to turn to God. It was a slow and steady process at first but I now can’t get enough of the Holy Spirit. I pray daily (frequently multiple times a day), I go to bible study, I go to church weekly and actually ENJOY it (very different than the “forced” attitude I used to have), I read the gospel, I read religious books, I listen to Christian radio. If you would have told me 5 months ago that this would be me I would not believe you. I just can’t get enough “religious food” I guess you could say. I have a constant thirst to know God more and more about my faith. You know when Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch to proclaim his love of Katie Holmes? That’s what I feel like doing about God! I’ve found him and my life is so much better because of that- and I want to spread his word.
I’ll never force my beliefs on any one of you but I want you to know that God is there waiting with open arms for you to talk to him. He’d be thrilled to have a conversation with you. You don’t have to wait for a struggle like mine to really get to know him. You could start the process today.
It means so much to have an outlet where I can talk about anything from my fitness goals to beauty products to even religion. So if you read this post I appreciate it more than you know. If you have any questions about returning to your Catholic or Christian faith don’t hesitate to reach out!
