I married an Atheist...and I'm a Christian!

Wow, there are plenty of warnings in the Big Book of Life that say that a "Christian" should not be yoked with an unbeliever.
Lets discuss this concept.

I just got married on 7-21-06, and I yoked myself with an Atheist. I was confronted with the question: "why would you marry somebody that will challenge your belief system every day?"

I have been a Christian for 11 years. I am yoked with an Atheist. This decision has brought some mental turmoil for me due to the fact that I KNOW how God feels about this...he was pretty clear about it in the Bible. Also, my family has not completely stood behind my decision to be with an Atheist, even though they admire and love my husband.

Although my spiritual situation is not ideal, I admire my spouse for his years of great effort and exploration to finally arrive to this solid conclusion. I would rather be with an Atheist who is sure about his spiritual stance (there is no stance), than a person who labels themselves as "Christian", but doesn't go to church (or know God for that matter); or is a "Christian", but molests children; or a "Christian", but beats his wife before Sunday service.
....I'm sure you get my point!!!!

I have fallen in love with the person that I married as a "whole". I accept him for the marvelous person that he is! I accept our differences: for example, our brains are wired differently. He is a scientific brain and I'm an artistic brain. He can't believe in God because there is no "Scientific Basis" or logical evidence for this system. I can believe because of personal experience with God. What makes me different from an Atheist? After all, I would not believe in God if He didn't make Himself real to me!

My only hope is that I do not have to suffer because of the decision I've made to be with an Atheist husband.

God's Time

Going Through the Pain of Life: I feel like this toad sitting on a big mushroom.

I have no idea why I'm feeling like this, but I'm a gonna do some PREACHIN! Hope y'all are wearing your Sunday Best!! :)

I'm here to inspire you and tell y'all this simple message: God will give you anything you want in this lifetime. Yes, God will send you the man you desire, the job you want, and /or the healing you need. But, here is the catch: IF YOU WAIT on him. God has alot of fixing to do (as he did with me!!!!!)...and we don't want to go through life being "half-fixed"!
When God finally answers your prayer, life is not all peaches and cream...with a new man comes a new set of "obstacles", with a new job comes new responsibility, with healing comes an obligation to do what is right.
Life is never free from burden.
Life is never easy for anybody.
Thank goodness for being older: as I get older I get wiser. And with wisdom I discover what is truly good for me.
Eating cooked spinach tastes like doggy doo-doo....but it is so nourishing to our body! just eat it!). Sometimes we just have to suck it up, and go through the pain that is intended for us. But we will come out of the pain! THEN and only then will we truly discover the freshness of victory.
OK, I'm stepping down from the pulpit. Thanks for being a good congregation. Now it's time to collect the offering $$ (hahahaha!!!)
;) Love ya!
