I feel like I can not ignore the reality I see around me as I interact with others in order to communicate postitively. That cost is too high. I pray that the Lord will change me and help and correct me as needed, so that I may be able to communicate the gospel as I relate to it.
With all that being said let me reassure the readers that I believe in and seek desperately the real existance of grace and peace and hope and joy and happiness in my life and for others
. I just can't seek it or communicate to it without including the things that hinder its existence in most believers lives. In lite of that I hope to communicate purposely about the things hindering us moving forward in these fruits that grow naturally. We are in desperate need of fruit that grows naturally. Help us Lord. I pray that those who read these blogs will have an open mind and heart as they read these thoughts. Also, please feel free to comment to any of our blogs. We simply long to connect and communicate with others as we travel along. Grace and peace to one and all.
I have a tendency to be deep, sensitive, and serious. Over the last week or so Shannon has been visiting with me about how I may sound negative. I can see clearly what she means and agree. However, as I reflect on this and how I can be different, I am struck by the reality that I am not sure how to be another way. I see things deeply and introspectively and that is who I am naturally. I feel like maybe what I need to do is make more effort in expressing the grace and hope and peace and love that we seek as believers.
