Your comments to my last post brought such a smile to my face and heart. I thought about answering you in the comment area but then wasn't sure as to who goes back to read the replies.
Thank you for your support and encouragement as I bared my heart. It is always an interesting thing for me to step out like that in written form because.....well here is how it is.
In our travels and tours of duty over the years with the military, we have had the privilege of embracing so many brothers and sisters in the Lord. In so doing we have gotten a huge open door glimpse to the truth that even though there are different denominations within the body of Christ, the fundamental truth remains that we are all a part of that body. Side issues like: is dancing a sin, are drums horrid to God's ears, is speaking in tongues a today gift, how should one dress for church, tattoos or no tattoos, piercings or not, prophetic words and spiritual manifestations......should have no bearing on the fact that we all believe in this.......Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose from the grave to redeem us for an eternity for those who accept and surrender to Him.
But sometimes, because people are people and no one is perfect, we can get hitched up in the side issues. Five years ago, I myself would not have even understood a story like I just shared yesterday. It would have been too "out of my box" to accept and wrap my mind around. In turn, I sometimes hesitate in sharing because I would hate for someone to walk away in confusion without me being able to explain things face to face.
I am so grateful and blessed that each of you were touched and encouraged. It solidifies even more to me the importance of sharing experiences big and small. One of our purposes here on earth is to lift one another up and encourage each other. Sharing experiences does just that.
Have a blessed and wonderful day today as you seek all that God has in store for you.
