I Know

This isn't one of my typical posts. I actually never thought I'd EVER be posting about this. But something has really been weighing on my heart lately and I guess it needs to come out. I have faith. I am a Christian. I don't hide it but lately I haven't been very great at showing it either. I've had some pretty bad experiences with, and examples of, "Christians". I guess it's made me bitter towards the idea of faith in general. I believe in God, in being a good person, and living your life to the fullest. I don't take my faith to extremes because I, personally, don't believe that's what faith is about. I would never force my beliefs on someone, whether it be about God or about the best brand of toothpaste. It's just not who I am. You do your thing and I'll do mine. Would I share my ideas and opinions with someone? Sure. But my relationship with God is personal, it is mine. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about it or says about it.. it comes down to what I know and feel, in my heart, to be true.

I heard this song and it really just stuck with me. It's kinda how I feel right now I guess.. so, enjoy :)

Where do I begin with what to say?
I've played this conversation in my head so many times
I'm certainly not claiming to know everything
but what I do will save your life

I know, I know that God is able
I know, I know that He still reigns
I know, I know that love has found a way

No matter what it is you're going through
even if you think you're far beyond where hope can see
I know there is a hand that's reaching out for you
because He did the same for me

It wasn't that long ago
when my own world fell apart, it fell apart
and everything here inside of me said to let go
you must let go

I found myself crying out
to the One who knows my heart
He knows your heart
and holding tight to the few things that I know

I know, I know.. that love has found a way

Listening to: I Know - MercyMe
