So, as previousely posted in a thread, I just finished reading "Letters From A Skeptic" and it really helped to transform my faith in Christianity. When I read the bible or even these books, I feel so connected....I feel as if it is "right there"...so true, so deep in my heart...it's almost as if I'm love sick with it. It's amazing.

But, what worries me is when I get lost in my day or live in "reality" I start to feel as if these are just fantasies I'm reading that make sense, but are too good to be true. I know this is awful to even say but I like to be honest with where I'm at so that I can move foward in my faith, honestly.

It's kind of ahrd to explain...but, when I am indulging in convos, books, literature, the bible...I feel so connected but then I worry as I'm grocery shopping, observing others, and just living the life, if this is all in my head and just exaserbated by some good theories. Shame on me for worrying about this but I guess part of me worries bc I really LOVE CHRIST and don't want to be wrong.

I tend to feel the same way sometimes. I'll come away from church or read something that really hit home and I feel strong but then when "doing life" it is a bit difficult to stick with it sometimes and really believe that it is not only possible but real. I figure that is why they call it faith. It isn't supposed to be easy. Like all good things, the ones that are worth it, take work.

I often times have those feelings. My thoughts if even if it is "wrong" is a drug that gets me high.

That's totally normal. It's hard to keep a balance between every day life and deep connection with God. What we have to be careful of is not to get so distracted by daily life that we leave God out or drift away from Him. I think it helps to pray each morning that you would be an employee of God for that day and ask Him to show you what he wants you to do that day. Thank him for the beauty of creation when you see it. Ask him to give you his eyes, ears, mouth, mind and heart when dealing with people wherever you are....on the road, in walmart, at the mall, at a restaurant...etc. Pray for your children, family members and loved ones every day and know that God has placed you right where you are to be his ambassador!
~ Ginger

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
