Why faith. Why Easter. What, when where, why, how…..asked me that 30 years ago and I may have struggled….(oops, bit of a giveaway there!)…
I’d like to explain (it’s taken me a while)…almost shout it from the roof tops. Except that attempting to climb a ladder could be a bit dodgey.
It’s funny how memories suddenly leap out (at 2am!). It was surprising for me, as my mind has been a kin to a pin ball machine recently… pinging all over the place! Serenaded by ‘ringy’ ears.
Finally, I got somewhere. Along with the help of inspiration from the online facebook retreat ~ She Breathes Hope .I’ve made progress into the subject of prayer, and talking about my journey into faith.
Hebrews 4:15 NIV For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses … 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Early dialogue with God…
This scripture above is so apt to begin…I will say that this subject takes me through light & shade. I hope you’re ok with it.
I can pretty much remember when I started to pray, or at least seek refuge in the love & comfort of God…and talk to him. I was probably about 5 years old. A relative (in my husband’s family), and Christian, thinks this quite unusual. I have no idea if it is.
