PREFACE: "The Truth About Christianity"

First off: Welcome! Thank you for the privilege you've given me by stopping on my blog!

As start off, I want to begin by considering what this blog is all about: how the truth of the Gospel transforms our lives. Due to the fact that there seemed too much information to cover in only one post, I decided to open up with a 3-part mini series, titled "The Truth About Christianity".

Over the next three posts, I will touch on three sections:
  1. What Christianity Is (and Isn't)
  2. Our (and My) Response to Christianity
  3. Our Calling as Christians

The first part discusses a few misconceptions about Christianity and reminds us what it actually is about. The second part brings us to the choice we all must make, and how God changed me from someone who knew of God, to someone who knows God intimately. The third and last part focuses on the realities of Christianity, and how it will inevitably change us.

For many of you this information is old news, and there may be the temptation to simply skip these first few posts completely. Please don't. These posts set the tone for everything else I'm going to write. If you want to better know where I'm coming from and why I'm writing, this is where you'll find it. 

My prayer is that these posts might be an encouragement to you, just as much as they were to me writing them,

For His Glory, 
Mandie Pitre

Out Of The Depths

Do you ever feel as if God has forsaken you? You know in your mind that God loves you and that "for those who love God all things work together for good" (Romans 8:28), but do you ever struggle to actually feel that God is near when the dark storm clouds come rushing in? Have you ever been so lost in depression that you simply lose all hope, that you feel as though God no longer cares?

I have. In spite of all I know and believe is true about who God is, His sovereignty, and His love, I still struggle so often with my feelings and emotions. It's easy in those moments of deepest despair to feel as if we are completely alone, that no one understands, and that none care.

How do you focus on God when you feel so lost - when you feel as if you are drowning in a whirlpool and you don't have the strength or ability to get yourself out?



The Truth About Christianity, Part 1: What Christianity Is (and Isn't)

Christianity.

A word that is so often misunderstood. But what does it really mean?

Type "definition of Christianity" into your average browser's search engine, and you'll come across an answer such as "the religion based on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices". In the secular world, "Christianity" simply refers to a set of beliefs that surrounds the person of Jesus.

If you dig a little deeper and ask a self-proclaiming Christian, you should hopefully get a different and more in-depth answer. Though the responses may vary depending on their specific beliefs, many who call themselves "Christians" would describe Christianity as a life-style choice, or a relationship with God. Being a Christian means that Jesus Christ is your Saviour and, if you put your faith and trust in God, you will go to Heaven when you die.

But is that it? Is being a Christian simply about not going to Hell and having a God to he…

Dear Heart, I Can Not Listen

Dear Heart,

Many days, I make the mistake of listening to you.
