This is the second of a series of discussions on Faith. My last post mention the sadness of thinking there was no hereafter. They who have no faith feel that they die and then turn into dust.
For those of us who believe and have faith, there is a bright path we are walking on. We know where we are going. We know because we saw the last chapter of the book.
One mistake we all make is to try to keep calmness around us, because there are many who will persecute us for our beliefs. We fear we can’t come up with the right things to say when we are challenged.
Here are some thoughts on that.
- You never have to try to convince anyone about their own lives being wrong. They already know it, and will probably attack if you mention it.
- My thought is to just share why I believe without out judging the other person. I share what my life was before I believed and the after I believed.
- Let them ask you questions. Don’t worry about getting the answers wrong. They are now in a different level. They are inquisitive.
- Just show other about your faith by your everyday actions. I have had more people ask me why I am so optimistic all the time. Boom! I can open up my heart. Many times They say they want some of that.
- Don’t hide your faith, but you also don’t need to stand on a corner and shout, “You are going to Hell, if you don’t believe!”I have gone to big sporting events, and sure enough there are always one or two people outside who are screaming at you. To many they are driving people away not bringing them closer.
The bottom line is that you just need to be you, and show others your love and caring way. That is a living testimony.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all….never, ever, give up!!
This is where I share some more about my upcoming book.
Today I am going to share how the book is laid out.
- The book starts out with me sharing my life while I was in the military.
- I share some funny and not so funny things that happened to me in basic training.
- I then share my advanced training school time.
- After that I was deployed to South Korea. Many stories. Some scary.
- Then I will share my time at Ft. Bragg. My scariest moment happened there.
This is the best part:
The rest of the will be actual interviews with veterans who have been in the trenches. I can guarantee you some of the stories will be very scary, sad, and tense. They will be some humor as well.
The appendix at the end will have several pages for jobs and careers for the military. Very extensive.
