My web designer,  Anna, tells me we get better coverage if we have green-light SEO’s.  So, I’ll give you a few words about what it means to be a Christian, through my lens.

Follow Me

When Jesus called His disciples, He did so with two words, “Follow Me.” In some places in the Bible, He said, “Follow me and I will  make you fishers of men.” He was, of course, talking to men who made their living fishing.

When I gave my heart to Christ, I did so wholeheartedly to follow Him. In my 20s, I crawled away from Him, wanting to find my own way apart from what I knew was right. I say “crawled” because it was a slow move. I allowed thoughts to enter my mind that needed to be captured and chained. Following those thoughts took my lifestyle  away from God for a few years.

Obedience and Blessing

Life is empty and miserable apart from God. There’s a pit of loneliness and emptiness that nothing and no one can fill. It’s the place within our depth that can only be satisfied by having a relationship with God. Then, I found my way back to Him, and began to understand what true joy and completeness look and feel like.

He restored me and brought me to a place of purpose,  filling that inner loneliness when it crawls up to haunt me. He is my everything.

What does being a Christian mean to me? It means I never walk alone, I have a leader who always speaks truth and wisdom, and it means I have eternal life with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
