i love that quote, its something iv always liked the sound of.
i read it though, as i am the lord, and i serve my house, and my kids.
i think personally you can read these biblical quotes, and take from it what you need to.
as long as your heart is true, and your intent true, i 100% believe that is enough.
i really dont think we need to go to church to be a good person.
i firmly believe the church, and the modern way its set out, is wrong.
again, this is just an opinion, and i hope i do not upset anyone with my opinions.
i tried god a few times, and couldnt find him.
Quick Story :
3 years ago, my 2 sons were going away to Portugal with the Grandparents.
i have a TERRIBLE fear of planes and flying in general. every time my kids go on a plane, i have a very strong fear. it consumes me, i cant be "me"
with the worry. Anyway. the night before the went away, i took the dogs out, as i was standing there, i was really upset. i looked into the sky (big
ass sky) and said to myself..."God, if you can hear me, send me a sign that my boys will be safe" ..seconds later, the exact area i was staring it,
"2 SHOOTING STARS".
i cried, as i knew "god" was watching over me.
Now, i dont do church, and i dont pray every day.
i do tho, thank god when good things happen, and challenge him when bad things happen. all in my head, and never in a church.
1 time i went to a church. the day my 2 sons arrived.
at the airport, as soon as i knew the flight had landed, i went into the airport church room place (you know the type) and said thank you.
i dont need no church to have a relationship with god.
honest to god, may i drop dead if i am kidding, true story.
