Eggs and the Christian Walk: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life
Updated: Aug 3
Have you ever thought about Christians being like eggs?
There are different types of church (egg) members, each with a unique personality and approach to their faith. Some are hard-boiled, taking a strict and unwavering approach to their beliefs. Others are more scrambled, open to interpretation, and willing to explore different perspectives. Then some are poached, gently guided by their spiritual leaders, and seeking to deepen their understanding of their faith. Others are like omelets; they are somewhere between scrambled and fried. Finally, there are the fried church members, those who are more relaxed and casual in their approach, taking their faith as it comes and enjoying the journey.
No matter where you fall on this spectrum, there is a place for you in the church community.
Which egg are you? As you mature in faith, I pray you become more like the poached egg.
No matter what you identify with make sure you’re building on the right foundation. “According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it.” 1 Corinthians 3:10
Accept others where they are, we all grow differently. “Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.” Romans 15:7
Enjoy your journey with Christ. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
By doing these things…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.
Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.
So… what’s this book about?
“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.
So… what’s this book about?
Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.
My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.
This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
