This is something I feel strongly about. I want people to see me as spiritual–not religious. When I think of “religious”– laws and rigidity and judgementalness come to mind. I don’t want to be that way.
I want to be faithful to Jesus. I want to be close to Him. I want to be able to worship, praise, learn, teach, sing, pray, and abide in my own way–how I feel comfortable. Isn’t that what faith should be?
There are sooooo many different ways to be faithful and spiritual. There are sooooo many different levels of comfort. So many different levels of knowledge. And only each of us know which circle we are in, how deep we feel comfortable, how close to the fire we can stand. Whatever other cliche works.
Faith must be our own. Understanding the spirit in us and holding on to that is for each of us to experience. And in that we grow. From there we can teach. And make. And dance with praise. In the way God created us to.
