Christmas,,,, what a wonderful time of year, great feeling, great hopefulness, great happiness and great music- I was listening to Christmas music the other day, “We Three Kings” and woke up thinking about the Star of Night – “Westward Leading, still proceeding, guide us to the perfect Light” That Star of night is still out there waiting for us to follow,,, It is the Light of Jesus, to lead us to that royal beauty bright – Help me Jesus to abandon the darkness of the world that I have slipped into and run toward your perfect Light- I ask forgiveness for my slide into the darkness of this world- There is no meaningful happiness here,,,,
I am Larry in my 60 something years. You might wonder… why after all these years, would you start a blog. The short answer… I read a book, a book that shook me to the very core of my beliefs, my outlook and my ideas of humanity. This book opened my eyes like no other, except for the Bible. Jesus, I truly believe, lead me to this point.
You see, I found Jesus in a small rural town over 50 years ago, and have depended and called on him for help and guidance many times throughout my life, (usually during Foul Weather in my Life) never doubting that he would be there for me. Now if you were to ask most of my childhood or adult friends… What do you think of Larry? Hopefully they would say I was a pretty good guy, but very few would say I was a Jesus believer or follower. I was very good at hiding my faith and belief in Jesus. Why… because I wanted Jesus and the world on my own terms. I was a fence setter, neither hot nor cold. I was an Undercover Christian a Christian in hiding. I thought I knew what I was… but was pretty careful about letting anyone else know.
This Blog is my attempt to remedy that with the Lord. I pray that with God’s blessing, my stories and observations from my life will be of some guidance for others to learn from my experiences and failures. This is in no way a glorification of me, as there is no glory in me, only the glorification of the Lord for what he has given to me.
The book, Killing Christians; Living the Faith Where It’s Not Safe to Believe by Tom Doyle. I highly recommend everyone read this book. I was blown away by this book. It brings to light the real evil, in real time, more terrifying and disgusting then any Hollywood movie that is present and practicing in the world today. Everyone needs to read this book and open your eyes.
I will be adding posts as I get into this. Your comments and prayers are certainly welcome and appreciated.
