I hate cliches! Do you? April 20, 2005Posted by roopster in Bible, Christianity, faith, God, Jesus, Religion, spirituality, Theology.
“Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water!” I hate cliches, especially this one. I started my journey out of a spiritually abusive environment and just kept walking. Every time I stop to determine if maybe I’ve gone far enough, I realize that the next step would be a piece of cake, so I take it. Sometimes I take steps backwards but quickly realize that I’ve been there, done that, so I quickly turn around. I know that I’m shooting for the moon when I try to develop a set of consistent beliefs, but I keep my fingers crossed and with hope against hope, God willing, I proceed to the ever allusive light at the end of the tunnel. However, I’m constantly being accused of throwing out that damn baby.
Honestly, I’m not trying to think outside of the box just because I have too much time on my hands. In fact, I’m quite busy and live my life in a constant state of being under the wire. Why then can I not call it a day, take a chill, and just be content with where I am? At the end of the day, I do love the the teachings of Jesus and continue to contend that the core message of Jesus is a great way to live life to the fullest.
I no longer can see eye to eye with many of my friends. Spiritually, I’ve taken certain leaps that when push comes to shove, may strain some of my relationships. However, I do try to my best to not make mountains out of molehills and simply carry on like there are no issues. After all, I’m on a journey and really don’t know where I will end up.
I wanted to say a big thanks to all of you who participate in this blog and give input into my journey. Life is truly like a box of chocolate and I’m glad you all are here to share my box with me. For those of you who feel I’ve gone too far, don’t worry, even though I hate cliches, I love babies!
