Craig’s Articles (many subjects)

Have no idea why this article comes up first on this blog, seeing it’s meant to be about Jesus (and not my articles)!

Sorry, no idea how this happened, as that was done and posted many years ago with WordPress on one of my hundreds of other blogs

(see https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/).

Anyway, enjoy the rest of the articles on Jesus

Just sharing a few thoughts (quick) on Faith

A Journey of Faith


Just sharing a few thoughts on faith in a discussion with a “non’believer/anti-religion” close friend this morning. (She knows I’m very interested in the overlap between mind and spirit…and have been studying the mind for much of my life).When questioned about my “positivity”, I replied that I choose my consciousnessness (a certain way of thinking, as in Christ consciousness) and Jesus is a focus for/of that faith. that things will always ultimately work out…IF I work hard doing my “very best”, then just submit and TRUST (the outcome). On parting I said “You don’t have to be ‘overly religious’ in following Christ – it’s just a simple and personal faith.”

It’s all really simple. At least I think so (in my “muddled little head”).
Don’t know whether this, these quick thoughts may be of interest/helpful or not, but am sharing anyway

As her feeble old hands held the worn, torn Book

She opened it’s pages, and took a familiar look

She settled back into her comfortable chair

And said,” help me Lord”, a mother’s prayer.

The written words from a voice she still could hear

Spoken with hope and no trace of fear

She looked into the sky and it sparkled with glory

A glow of joy and here is her story.

Thank you mom, for guiding me

For showing me how a girl should be

When I was young you kept me safe

You took me to church and taught me about faith.

I’ll never forget your caring way

For doing the same thing, day after day

You stayed with me, guided me and kept me safe

You were there, you never left, you taught me about faith.

You taught me that when things are hard

And I want to…
