I believe in God the Father – maker of heaven and earth
And in Jesus Christ His only Son
I believe in the virgin birth
I believe in the Man of Sorrows bruised for iniquities
I believe in the Lamb who was crucified and hung between two thieves
I believe in the resurrection on the third and glorious day
And I believe in the empty tomb and the stone that the angel rolled away
He descended and set the captives free
And now He sits at God’s right hand and prepares a place for me
I believe He sent His Spirit to comfort and to reveal
To lead us into the truth and light, to baptize and to seal
I believe that He will come back the way He went away
And receive us all unto Himself, but no man knows the day

I am nothing special. Yet, Christ died for me . . . it blows my mind still, even after 30ish years in the faith! The above words represent who I am, and this is MY creed. I love the Lord my God with everything I am and I strive to know Him more and love Him better.
I have always had somewhat of a rebellious spirit. And I am OK with that since no one in history has ever been more of a rebel than Jesus Christ. In churches and in Christian circles I am rarely politically correct, not at all conventional, and tamed . . . never! The children of God are powerful people. We cannot be contained and we will not be silent! God has given us much to say and do.
I frequently ponder the things of God and I question everything. I created this blog to share with my Christian brothers and sisters my crazy thoughts and ideas about our great faith . . . . AND . . . . to hear yours.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8
