Remember me?

Melissa
Taken by my son, not too bad for a 6 year old!

To those that know me, it has been a tough struggle of mine to discern when, if ever, I should continue to remain anonymous on this blog. Well, today, God answered that question for me. Many of you may remember me from my past blog- Work for the Cause Not the Applause- A Jewish Girl’s Journey to Jesus. For those that followed me before and to the friends I made, I am so grateful. That blog had run its purpose and course, and at God’s prompting I created this new space.

I am thankful for so many things in my life. But one of the things I am most thankful for are the relationships I have created with people all over the world who have joined me on my journey. I am especially thankful for Levi, Kathy and Julie who I met on their respective blogs, and to all of my wonderful friends who I collaborate with over at Church Set Free (Susan, Paul, Don, Cate B., John, Wally, Roland, The Modern Theologian and Little Monk). For me, blogging has always been about not walking alone on the journey and finding relationship with others who feel the same.

My journey has been quite eclectic, not foreseeing in a million years that the God I served as a young Jewish girl would lead me to become a Christian.  And as if that was not surprising enough, God’s next move of making me a Catholic was nowhere in the cards. If it wasn’t for the support and encouragement of my brothers and sisters in Christ, I am not quite sure how I would have handled it. For all the people that had an opinion, in the end God reigned, and I am right where I am supposed to be.

And on that note, you can check out my new About page, with full disclosure of who I am. Thank you to all of you, whoever you are who have embraced me for who I am and have continued on the road less traveled with me. God bless you all.

      1. If only more people realized that and did not take things so lightly. There is a physical world and a spiritual one. Everything we do in this life, matters in the next. That should scare those who are not living as they should be. We’re not perfect, but we are His and we must proclaim the Truth without fear! As you and I know, that is easier said than done. The life of a Christian is not easy. We must fight the good fight! God bless you…

  1. You go girl—for I am proud to say I know both Melissa and Mary 😉
    I sense a more comfortable spirit within and for that I am glad–it is not always easy and at times we do feel isolated and alone—you, me, us…we are on this journey together–the time draws nigh and the urgency of spreading the One True Word is keen—-just remember we fight this fight together for ours is a battle in which Satan prefers our quiet hidden voices—it’s time to to make a little noise 🙂

    1. Yes exactly. I am so glad you are part of my journey. Though we’ve never met in person, I feel like I’ve known you my whole life. I thought today had cool it would be if one day we could all meet up in NYC to meet each other in person!

  3. So nice to find you again and to hear that you have joined the ranks of people like Julie who are such well educated and empassioned voices for Christ. He needs all of us to stand up and find ways to tell others about Him. We are called to be his hands and feet and so upward and onward we shall go. Love and hugs, Natalie 🙂 ❤
