To Piggy Back off the Last Post

Alright so I wrote to y'all the other day about some questions of faith, Christianity, and what have you not....

Well today I am here to say that I am on a quest.

 Last year I studied Romans. I'm doing it again!!! I found that last year it helped shape an understanding. Not fully, but a good starting ground. Just in the first chapter, it presents 'Living by Faith" (which last year when I studied Romans, my whole main question of focus throughout was "how am I suppose to live by faith.") This time I am adding to that question, along with how am I suppose to live by faith, but what does faith look/feel like? 

So this quest, is to redefine where I stand with God, how do I live my life, with my thought, feeling, opinions, and all around who I am, to define/redefine my faith, and belief, my life with Christ. 

Throughout the last year and a half, there have been plenty of ups and downs, good times, and bad time, good choices, and bad choices, new life experiences, etc. Which all has really impacted my life. I'm not who I was when I was in high school, or even who I was a year ago. I am really actually kind of liking who i am, and who I am becoming! SHOCKER I know right. lol.

Well in starting to like who I am, and on a continued journey of learning who I am, my faith, is a good chunk of that. Whether good or bad, its part of who I am. So that is why I am working on the redefining it, and figuring it out.

Sure, next year and the year after and so on it will always have to be examined again. Defined and redefined, but right now, I'm taking what I know, what I have questions on, and taking them to where I can start figuring it out. 

I'm gonna need prayer, I'm gonna need those check in's from people, I can't do this on my own, I need my friends and family to "cheer" me on, and help keep me going. 

So there you have it for today (feel honored 2 blogs 1 week lol)
