Silly, Empty Questions

I have gotten asked, “Have I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and confessed my sins”. These questions put me off. They seem to be a form of entrapment. If you know me you should not have to ask me that.

It should be evident to you. If you don’t know the answer then you have been too busy concerned with the semantics and nothing else. If I answer yes to those questions, does that mean that is all it takes? Not for me it isn’t.

I spend everyday confirming to my Savior my love for Him. Everyday day I am confessing my sins and asking forgiveness because I am human and there is always something to repent of.

Have I accepted Christ as my personal Savior and confessed my sins? Well, even though I have and do, it really isn’t anyone’s business. Am I a Christian? Yes! But I guess the question lies with what you see a Christian as. Then comes my response. I don’t care what your views of being a Christian are.

Your views are not what is going to extend mercy to me so that I can enter my Fathers’ kingdom. You did not die for my sins. Your views and conditions have no value what so ever.

The Yellow Rose

This time, I was again in the frontoom with my children. I had my eyes closed. Someone had put a yellow rose in my hand. I couldn’t see who it was but as soon as he spoke. I said, “Oh I know that voice.” It was the voice of my husband. I smiled and pressed his hand against my cheek. He was by my side and I whispered, “I love you.” Then I was gone. It was so real.

It was a harsh reality when I woke up to an empty room.

I looked up the meaning of a yellow rose: Yellow roses are often given to loved ones as a way to bring joy and cheer. Due to the yellow rose’s bright color, many attribute it to the warmth of a sunny day, and rightfully so. It’s an absolute beauty to behold, bringing happiness to all who receive it.
