I'm just a girl, a human like anyone of you. I have enough problems in the real world without bringing in the spiritual, but the truth is, the world is as spiritual as it is physical; if not more, and living in it as if it isn't, is merely living in denial.
What do you think of heaven and hell? Do you believe in them? Truth is, they exist! No matter how much we try to push the fact to the back of our minds, they are real (or will be soon). Do the thoughts of hell sometimes creep in your mind and scare you half to death? They do to me. And in those moments, I think to myself about how inconsequential everything on this earth really is.
I've always thought myself too smart to go to hell. Because we really have been forewarned, we have been told all the signs in the Bible. How stupid it would be to end up in hell. For all of eternity! All because we were chasing after the world and all its enticements, for the period of our SHORT stay on earth.
I fear pain, any kind of pain, even the littlest ones. I have a headache and I can't even cope (which is why I understand people who do drugs. Even the pain of being alive is enough headache for some). So I can't imagine being alive for all of eternity in a burning furnace! without the option of death or passing out. Oh the pain. Dear God, please spare me. This fear though is the bedrock of my wisdom. As it is said in the Bible- "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Proverbs 9:10)
I want to do right by God. I want to secure my spot in heaven. I want to carry out the Great Commission- "to win souls for Christ" through sharing my Christian journey (via this blog :d). This is my first day, my first step towards being "perfect" (in His eyes).
If you have ever had this internal struggle, I'd like you to join me, and encourage me with your stories too. Let's be Christians together. Let's be the best versions of ourselves. Even while living in this world that is full of temptations. Christianity is not as hard as it seems when you think of it in its totality. We can at least try, day to day. That is what this blog is all about. "Christianity in Progress. Trying to emulate Christ everyday. Falling and starting over." I know God bless us as we try.
