“When did she become SO religious?”

OLDRecently a dear friend of mine told me that while he was having lunch with a mutual friend of ours (who I haven’t seen in a while) they asked him about me and said…”When did she become SO religious?” I found this interesting but not surprising at all!
See the thing is, I guess I have always had a relationship with God but it hasn’t always been a close relationship. Something changed in me about six years ago though. I didn’t like the person I had become. God was never first, I was. I made alot of mistakes. Alot! Thankfully, God is an all-forgiving God and because of that, I have made peace with those mistakes. I am definitely not perfect and I continue to not be perfect but it’s pretty cool that He loves me anyway.  That mutual friend knew me when I was the person I didn’t really like and that is probably why they asked our friend about the whole religion thing. I am okay with that because I really WANT people to see that I have changed and that I keep changing. My center is now Jesus Christ. He is at my core and He is at the core of our family.  He is the filter for everything we do as a family. We pray alot, go to Church alot and we try to show our light as much as we can. I am hoping that is what our mutual friend is seeing…my light. Because I can honestly say, I have never been happier with where I am in my life and in my walk with Christ. So I guess that makes me “so religious” then huh? But that is something I can definitely live with.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

    Greatest complement a Christian can get on this earth is for others to take notice that they have changed from who they used to be. That means a heart change. One that allowed Jesus to fully have your heart! You have a huge platform Cindy and I’m so grateful that you have “changed”. I always liked you before. I like you still. I love that you are my sister in Christ even better!

    I see your light….not that you are “so religious” Matthew 5:1616 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    I think that a lot of people get confused when it comes to other people’s being religious. So many forget the Golden Rule, which is simply treat others the way you would like to be treated. Religion and spirituality is not some kind of a contest. How you choose to live your life and what you feel in your heart is up to you. As long as you’re not hurting anyone else, everyone is entitled to their own feelings.
