Just a Thought, Spiritual

What Do I believe –

What are my beliefs and if they are my beliefs shouldn’t I be able to express them openly and freely?  Or should I just express them to myself, in private prayer and never express them to anyone? 

Should I live my life in accordance with my beliefs openly and freely – or should I hide my belief from others for fear of what they will say?

Do my beliefs, those beliefs that I hold dear, are they from God or are they from the world.  Are my beliefs inspired of God, or are they mingled with worldliness.

Do I live in a shell with only myself – or am I part of a community?

Do I love my neighbor as the Lord loves me?

Do I believe what I believe, or not?  If I believe what I do – should I keep it to myself?

If I keep it to myself – then do I really believe it – or am I ashamed or scared of what the world, my friends, my relatives will think?  Do I want to follow what I believe, or do I want to be popular I the sight of the world.

Or should I remember what the Savior said – “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.  (Matt 5:11-12)

Do I really know where I’ve come from, why I’m here and where I am going? Do I know what I want to do for the rest of my life?

Yes – I want to be a follower of Jesus Christ and follow His teachings.  I want to serve all His children in any way that I can.

I want to live each day living what I believe and living it in a way that shows the world that I am a follower of Jesus Christ and that my Savior loves all the people of this world, black or white, straight of gay, sinner or repented – And by doing this I will become the man that my God knows I can be.

I want to respect others beliefs and be able to freely express my beliefs and be able to teach those beliefs to anyone that wants to hear them –

And I give all Glory and Honor to my Heavenly Father –
