Day 2602: Love – The Core of Christianity

“Maybe all of life is a school of love to prepare us for a life of eternal love.” – Reverend Ian Howarth

 

It’s 12:  41 PM on day 2602 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray,  read Romans 8:15, go to church and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet -raised $4 388 only $8 112 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks to everyone who has helped out so far)

 

Today at church it was basically said that love is the core of Christianity and that without a love of God and a love of others anything we do or say is meaningless and I have to say I agree with that wholeheartedly we were literally born out of love (the love of God and the love between our parents) and our duty in this life (and probably in the next) is to be the embodiment of that love.

 

 

Day 2490: Exercising my Religious Freedom

Make use of all the freedoms you have – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 1 : 17 PM on day 2490 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Acts 4:19-20,   and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised to $1 750 only $10 750 more to raise  by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot .

 

Today I chose to go to church knowing that many Christians in other countries don’t have the freedom to do so sometimes we forget how fortunate we are to have the freedoms we have and so we take them for granted.

Day 2448: Before All Else Start With Jesus

We cannot be functional if we don’t first start at the feet of Jesus– that’s what I know.

 

It’s 11 : 39 AM on day 2448 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Proverbs 22: 6, go to church, have breakfast and learn a new word – Extemporaneous adj. 1. Unrehearsed. Done or said without advance preparation or thought; impromptu. 2. Prepared in advance but delivered without notes or text: “An extemporaneous speech.”

 

Today we want to church and listened to a sermon entitled “Only One Thing Is Needed” it was about how in order to make a meaningful contribution to the world we must first start at the feet of Jesus I could relate because every morning before I start my day  I pray and then list out loud all the things I’m grateful for which takes  me about eight minutes to do but it’s totally worth it after that I feel centred and prepared for anything that the day has in store for me.

Day 2358: The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for? by Rick Warren

“Service is the pathway to real significance.” – Rick Warren

 

It’s 12  :  00 PM on day 2358 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, have breakfast, read,  and learn a new word – Apocryphal [a·poc·ry·phal] adj. Of doubtful authenticity, although widely circulated as being true. “Apocryphal stories dating from Hollywood’s golden age.”

 

Yesterday I finished reading The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for? by Rick Warren it’s a Christian book but it also has valuable insights about certain aspects of life I would recommend it to Christians struggling to find direction in their lives (thanks Bithun for buying it for me).

Day 2224: God Is Not Just In Church

God is in you, in your actions and in your words not just in church – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 10 : 56  AM on day 2224 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Haggai 2:6-7, have breakfast, learn one new thing – Efficacious [ef·fi·ca·cious] adj. Successful in producing a desired or intended result; effective. “Efficacious treatment for the disease.”– and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $8 011.04 only  $4 488.96 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).

 

This morning I was thinking about my younger days when I had to go to church to feel like a Christian and to feel the presence of God which is in stark contrast to the way I feel today now I understand that God is in me, in my words and in my actions. God meets me wherever I am and accepts me just as I am.

 

Day 2210: Own Your Faith

It’s okay to own your faith – that’s my message to the world.

 

It’s 11 : 07  AM on day 2210 of my journey towards independence and I managed to  pray, read 2 John 1:6, have breakfast and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign    –raised $7 675 only  $4 825 more to raise to reach my second goal of raising $12 500 for Smile Train before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far ).

 

Recently I’ve started posting Bible verses on my social media platforms I never used to do that for fear of imposing my faith on others but now I realize I’m not forcing anything on anyone I’m just doing my duty as a Christian by sharing with the world what Christianity teaches me.

Day 2078: Teaching Children the Right Ways in Life

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

– Proverbs 22: 6

 

It’s 12 : 42  PM on day 2078 of my journey towards independence and I managed to have breakfast, pray, read Proverbs 23: 14, learn one new thing – There are approximately 6,900 distinct languages in existence today, though there may be languages spoken in remote areas that we have yet to discover. No matter how many new languages we find, though, this number will be much lower in 100 years.– and work on my  25 Smiles Campaign   – raised $5 774 only $476 more to raise before Jan 10 2017 (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far 🙂 ).

 

This morning my brother stood in the middle of our sitting room with his back to me I watched him trying to figure out what he was doing after a while he made a cross in that moment I realized he was praying of his own accord before he left for school I was SO PROUD just goes to show if you tell kids to do something for long enough eventually they’ll do it of their own accord.

Day 1986: Me and God – a two-way street

Our relationship with God is a two-way street– that’s what I’m realizing.

 

It’s 12 : 28 PM on day 1986 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read Titus,  learn one new thing – More than 1,500 fish species live on the reef, including the clownfish, red bass, red-throat emperor, and several species of snapper and coral trout. About 5,000 species of mollusks live on the reef. –have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – yesterday Joyce donated $25 (thanks SO MUCH Joyce for your support it means the world to me :) ) which brings the total raised to $2 972 only $3 278 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

This morning in the car heading to church my mom goes I told you it was raining to which I said God didn’t forget to wake us up because it was raining our relationship with God is truly a two-way street we can’t just be faithful when it’s convenient for us.

Day 1982: Christianity Simplified

People make Christianity more complicated than it has to be all you need to do is believe, do the right thing and treat others well – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 13 PM on day 1982 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 2 Timothy 1,  learn one new thing –  Jupiter is the most massive planet in our Solar System, meaning it also has the highest gravity. If you stood on Jupiter – you cannot because it does not have a solid surface – than you would weigh two and a half times what you would on Earth.–have breakfast, and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign – yesterday Duane donated $250 (thanks SO MUCH Duane your ongoing support means the world to me  :) I know I’m a bit of a bottomless pit LOL thanks for putting up with me) which brings the total raised to  $2 912  only $3 338 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

This morning I was thinking about what I’ve learned after reading the Bible almost every day for more than a year and I realized people make Christianity more complicated than it has to be all you need to do is believe, do the right thing and treat others well.

Day 1977: Doing Faith

Faith is not just something you have it’s also something you do – that’s what I’ve realized.

 

It’s 12 : 17 PM on day 1977 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read 1 Timothy 2,  learn one new thing –Menthol is an organic compound made synthetically or obtained from cornmint, peppermint or other mint oils. It is a waxy, crystalline substance, clear or white in color, which is solid at room temperature and melts slightly above.–have breakfast and work on my 25 Smiles Campaign –  ‘My Paper Parties’ and ‘Happy Odd Girl’ donated $25 each (thanks SO MUCH guys support means the world to me :)  )  which brings my total raised to $2 132  only $4 118 more to raise by 10 Jan 2017  (SO SO SO GRATEFUL to everyone who has supported this campaign so far :)  ).

 

Today I realized that faith is not just something you have it’s also something you do sometimes we don’t feel like praying, reading the Bible and going to church sometimes we don’t even know where God is but I think it is during those times that we should do our faith the most sorta like behaving your way back into believing.
