Societal Changes and political correctness, violence and ‘in your face’ concepts of life and living mean I can no more go the approach of softly, softly, in case someone is upset. I will express it as it is. Like the cat above I will come out of my hiding place.
I am not ‘religious’. I do not follow a RELIGION. I follow a PERSON. I am a Christian.
He is both SHEPHERD and LORD of my life.
I accept that He has saved me and paid the price for ALL MY SINS at Calvary. I am a ‘blood-bought’ child of God. I am ‘born-again’ therefore although I live in this world, I am not of this world, I live in the Kingdom where He Christ is undeniably and unreservedly LORD.
I am filled with His Spirit. Pentecost for me has meant that NOW I have in me all the resources and POWER of God the Holy Spirit energising and renewing my life.
I am not perfect . I never will be but the ongoing sanctifying Presence of Christ in and through me will lead me to ongoing repentance. Of course I fellowship with ‘other’ Believers but I am not trapped by ‘structure’ or concepts. Christ ALONE is my Guide, My Comforter, my friend. HE IS LORD! He is my Glorious SAVIOUR!
I also have a prayer language. Tongues flows like a river energising my life.
My husband David and I proudly in 2019 come out of the cupboard and proclaim.
WE ARE A PAIR OF OLD P.O.F’s, People of FAITH. That is our TRUTH. JESUS IS LORD!
LOVE TO ALL PEOPLE………..a-men.
Blessings and Peace to you and yours.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

Nicely said Faye. I AM A CHILD OF GOD, too. Blessings and love Nancy.
Lovely, Faye. ❤️😘
Wonderful post of proclamation, Faye ❤
Many are content to simply identify with "person of faith" terminology. Yet this is actually quite a vague description which can mean a lot of things to various people. Rejoicing with you both, as "persons of faith" saved by grace through faith in the blood of our risen Lord Jesus Christ! 😇🎶🙏🏼✝💜 Jackie@KWH
