Credit Where Credit Is Due

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Here's my usual disclaimer: You are not required to agree with me. You are not required to read my blogs. You are not required to comment about how displeased you are that I am a heathen. I am a heathen. If that's a problem for you...you might want to stop reading now.

"You will however get peace from praying and empowerment to move forward in your lifestyle from using it as an easy go to when the world is spinning."

A popular Sparker that I generally like, wrote this today.

I wanted to write back...

"Actually I get peace from knowing that I am loved by my friends and family, from knowing that I behave ethically, and from achieving the goals I set out for myself so that I will not have regrets later. My empowerment comes from the power I have inside of me. My personal strength is the fuel that keeps me going. I'm not going to let a sky god steal the credit for my accomplishments!"

You folks can pray if you want. You can believe in any deity that suits you. While you do that, I will be celebrating my victories that I accomplished without begging for them.

    Uwwww!!! Ur a heathen, why am I even commenting on your blogs,blah,blah. I'm a heathen too. Shame that I want to be accountable for my own accomplishments,hell i'm putting in the work. I like your style. I like a person who can be themselves no matter who tries to change them into what they feel is better instead of just accepting them as they are.

    Bravo for the guts to post about your own beliefs. I am not a Christian, nor do I participate in any organized religion. I do, however, have a great relationship with God.

    I do understand a bit how you feel because when people hear "I'm not a Christian" their faces immediately contort as if they are visualizing me on fire.

    We all have to live our lives - kudos! emoticon Pat

    Agree agree agree. You have to work for what you want. You can ask the sky for help all day but if you don't lift a finger to do anything, nothing will ever change.
