Faithbook Pinky

"Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words." Romans 8:26 I know that many people have reached a point where all they can do is sigh...sometimes, on your knees, a sigh is the most powerful prayer. I believe with our sighs we not only enter His rest but we are taken boldly to the throne of Grace.

How Do You Imagine God?
God in America and USA WEEKEND Magazine are partnering to explore Americans' images of God.

How do you imagine God? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I imagine God as - and know that for me He is - My Father (Mother/Parent), Friend, Advocate, Guide, Counselor..my All. He is all we need and all any of us ever really have. I imagine Him as pure and perfect Love with the power of Tolerance and a great sense of Humor!

My Beliefs

My greatest moment of doubt was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator ....bewilderment more than doubt; because I have always known He is there....however, when close family and trusted friends betrayed me, I wondered why such a hurt had to happen.
My spiritual role model is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator My Heavenly model is Jesus; my earthly role model (who lives the tenets of Jesus)is my Aunt Nancy for her calm, steady, never wavering faith that has greatly influenced me from my early years on.
The tenet/practice/teaching I appreciate most about my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Forgiveness, Redemption and Renewal remain available.

How I Practice My Faith

In my house, the thing that most represents my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator My open Bible - complete with torn pages; my "God's Eye" wall hanging; a displayed copy of a Peanuts comic strip wherein Linus quotes Romans 8:26 to Lucy; a painting of Jesus seated at a table, hands folded looking straight into the eyes of anyone who views the artpiece; and my well-worn copy of Zen Mind/Beginners Mind by Shunru Suzuki.
The song/book/film that most represents my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator "Because you loved me" by Celine Dion. This, to me, was never about eros love. It has always represented the love that God has for us.
