The Wonderful Truth

     Jesus loves who we are, not who we pretend to be. The title of Christian cannot validly be substituted with Perfect. Why do we act like it should? I for one am fed up with buying into the enemy's lies of shame and fear, causing me to believe that I must hide who I really am in order to be accepted by God and, even more so, by other Christians. Let's call a spade a spade. Jesus died for me, not for fake me. So I am ready to be the real me. Messed up and reflecting God's glory. This blog will mostly be poetry and journal entries I've written that reflect my desperate need for my Savior and how I am becoming more and more like him. (Mostly the need though!) My hope is that I'll be increasingly this real me not just in blog form, but in all areas of my life. And that having someone go first will help you do the same. 

Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
