I write. This is what I do. I think in pictures which convert into words and I pick one by one out and thread them together…


A friend recently said, Christianity is overrated. I understand what she meant clearly today. Not that Christianity is overrated. I understand why she thinks Christianity is. I think Christianity is what it is but there is this constant battle to stay within its boundaries. Sometimes, it is the hardest battle of all to say no to what your heart wants and yes to what is ‘Christian’ and ‘Biblical’ when there is so much warring inside. But God doesn’t give us stones we ask for bread and He has meant the boundaries for good. My good. There’s no one unfaithful to God than I am and yet this amazing God still remains faithful to a jackass like me. Is Christianity overrated? I don’t think so. I don’t get what I want. But if I remain in Him, I will get what I need.
