Sorry, anon! I was moving and didn’t have the internet for a while. I don’t want to offend you, but I sincerely don’t want to talk about politics. I really hate talking politics, even if it’s to state what I care about.
I have no ideaaaa!!! It’s just perfect. It’s such a beautiful month. Usually the weather is absolutely perfect and this is when season winter funk wears off and spring joy and happy chemicals bounce around.
I don’t have any views, really. I don’t know what else to say, haha. I’m pretty indifferent. I don’t smoke marijuana, but I know people who do and I can tell you that alcohol inebriates a person far more than marijuana does. I think it’d cut down crime if the government played their cards right. But what do I know? I don’t care about politics (with the exception of a few things), so I really don’t know how legalizing it or not legalizing it would benefit the world or not. I mean, like all drugs, they’re bad for you. But alcohol and cigarettes are bad and those are legal? I just don’t know, friend.
Terrible things don’t shake my faith because it has nothing to do with my faith. My faith is not dependent upon whether or not everything’s good and great in the world. If that were the case, we’d ALL have faith and be positive.
I’m not naive, either. I’ve never turned a blind eye to the ugly that happens in our society around the clock. I’m not ignorant or over-optimistic. I don’t think that everything’s hunky-dory and that “we should all just get along” and that “the world would just be a better place if x, y, and z”. I know exactly what kind of horror happens every minute of every day. I’ve experienced ugly. I’ve witnessed awful things happen. But what a lot of people think about Christians is that we just turn our head and pretend it’s not there.
Not true. I don’t know where I’m going with this, but back to my point.
I maintain my faith because I know who God is. I know He’s good. I know He’s literally the only thing in my life that is consistent and honest and genuine and REAL. I know that no matter what’s going on, I can always find peace and answers in Him. He heals me, calms me down, makes me laugh, brings me joy, lightens my day, paves my path, gives me hope, and promises to never leave me.
I don’t know how to accurately answer this question. I don’t want to offend anyone, but I think that everyone needs God. I’ve got friends who would turn their nose up at that. And you know what? Fair enough. Christians have done a terrible job at representing who God actually is. People don’t understand God, they judge Him based off what they know about idiot “Christians”. I firmly, 100% believe that if someone were to truly and genuinely catch a glimpse of how precious and wonderful God is, they wouldn’t be able to turn Him down.
Do you see the trend in my answer? Events don’t have anything to do with my faith because my faith isn’t rooted in events. It’s rooted in the huge, awesome, loving and tender God that I know and love.
Meh, honestly I don’t care. Everyone has opinions and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is truth and love.
Thank you!! All is well. That happened in Waco, which is about an hour and a half from Austin. Terribly sad what happened.
I’m often late to discover artists
And last night I discovered The Lumineers. My, oh my. They are fantastic.
I feel you. I’ve always been curious about therapists and “seeing someone”. However, seeing a therapist does NOT mean you’re crazy, AT ALL!! And, dear friend, the truth is that we can’t fix our own problems. Some of us have baggage that is way to heavy for any one human to carry on their own. That’s why we need each other, as people. We can’t do this life thing alone. We need someone to talk to.
You can have a smooth, normal life. Get healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. Some people need a physical trainer and a hired dietitian to help them eat and exercise right. It’s the same for your mental and emotional state. We all just need somebody.
I’m not sure what you mean by this? I also don’t think that my beliefs really matter. Christianity is about loving God.
