I don’t think there is ever much that someone can really say to convince you to believe in God. Sure seeds get planted, testimonies shared and the like, but ultimately for many of us, it comes down to the moment when you have tried everything in your own strength, you realize the burden is too heavy and you cry out for something or someone to help you.
I had a down week. And it was crazy because I was so up before that. Have you ever had those days where you feel like a dark cloud is following you? That’s exactly what I was experiencing that week. I was mulling over everything I didn’t have or haven’t done. I was feeling so “Woe is me,” and it reminded me of who I used to be. A person who felt sorry for themselves and like they had nothing going for them, but honestly had so much more than so many people that they should be on their knees thanking God every minute of every day. And it was rooted in external and material things. Though I was praying, I couldn’t shake it and then I realized that every single day is a fight for your life and livelihood.
I guess you could say, “In that Order,” from the wise Mama Dee. Ha! But really, this has been one of my most important life lessons. I included this in Dear Love and it remains an important concept. When we get in order, so much more of life flows seamlessly. It’s in the times where I am completely out of order that I feel frantic, chaotic, angry, and sometimes afraid. In the quest of learning to love, the order is God, yourself, and others.
It dawned on me recently that many of you may have no idea why the blogs linked to spirituality are entitled Journey of a Non-Believer. It may even be a little bit confusing. Lol. But I assure you that I am a believer and follower of Christ. Every day I am working diligently to be more and more like him. And though I know that I will NEVER be perfect, I look forward to being the most refined version of myself that I can be.
