Something just happens. You can't explain it because it's beyond you. It's like a snap of a button, a switch of a light, a blink of an eye, and suddenly everything makes sense. It's like seeing your child emerge from the womb; you know that nothing can stop you from loving it. It's like seeing your spouse on your wedding day for the very first time; nothing looks more beautiful. Or like standing in the batter's box after hitting a grand slam with bases loaded; nothing feels more perfect. For me in this season in my life, something has happened and I can't explain it because it's beyond me.
I'm living out loud what I believe and not giving a rip! And it makes sense.
It's not like I coward behind the religious beliefs of my parents or lived as a camouflaged-Christian, but there was something silent about my faith because of fear. I feared I would be ostracized, I feared I would be marginalized, I feared I would look like I belonged on some weird Christian television show with people who looked more like a circus act than followers of Christ. So I remained silent about my faith or gave mousy replies when asked about particular subjects.
But in growing up I’ve learned that I don’t have to carry a 40-pound cross, tote a 10-pound bible, or hold up signs claiming that I love Jesus. I am simply a working girl, who stands for justice and righteousness, teaches the bible when possible, and is quite normal. I’m not a hyper-fundamentalist who is afraid of media, music, and movies. No sir, I embrace this culture [with caution] because I’m in this world but not of this world (Col. 2:8), trying to make it better by sharing Truth, Hope, and Love any way possible. I will use a homing pigeon, smoke signals, a blog, twitter, facebook, or whatever means possible to dispense redemption and Truth.
So, I’ve decided to create a facebook page for In The Name Of Love and will be posting updates and discussions as I think it may be easier to dialogue with other followers. Topic du jour: mass communication J
