When you pray, what do you pray for? Is it for the food on your table or the roof over your head? Maybe you pray for your smokin hot wife like Ricky Bobby does in Talladega Nights. We often times pray for things we “want,” and don’t take time to pray for things we take for granted, like our beautiful lives we were given. Instead of praying for “objects,” I believe it’s also important to give thanks and pray to God for your health and the life he’s blessed you with. Some people aren’t so lucky.
When you picture God or Jesus, how do you envision Him/Her? Maybe you picture Jesus as a little cuddly baby in his manger or even as an all mighty ninja. Either way, the choice is up to you and no one can tell you different because nobody knows for sure what God or Jesus looks like, unless you have seen the man/woman upstairs. If you have, please feel free to share details with me, I’m pretty curious.
Before beginning my first blog post, I just wanted to say thank you for following my blog in the first place. It truly means a lot! I appreciate your time and hope you enjoy what I have to say. P.S. Please don’t judge my first blog post.
As an individual who has never been real big into faith, you may wonder what in the world influenced me to begin writing a religious blog. Well, I’m currently in a J-Term class called Bible Blogging. What is Bible Blogging you ask? Um, the title kind of explains itself. We blog about the Bible. Originally, I took the course to fulfill my second religion requirement. As the course progressed, I actually became very excited and eager to begin writing a “Bible” blog. The blog was no longer a requirement for the class, but a way to help find my faith I had been straying away from.
Like many of you, I’ve experienced some tough times in my life and wonder, where was God when this happened or why did this even happen to me? The answers are still not clear to me. They may never be clear to me. What I do know is that there is a God. If there wasn’t a God, I feel like there would be no hope. Everyone has to find a place to put their faith in. Where’s yours?
