I took Christ out of religion

I feel as if I have walked from Bethlehem to Jerusalem and back again trying to understand Jesus’ purpose in my life. Finally, when I took Christ out of religion, things began to unfold more simply for me.


For a long time, I strove to be as Godly as He, and often left feeling afraid, exhausted and like a failure. I even tried to get rid on him a number of times, thinking that he was a crutch and I relied on him far too much.

Real Love doesn’t die

Now, accepting I walk a very crooked line without him, I depend on Him being my guiding hand and light, keeping me on the straight and narrow. Today, I feel his spirit alive in me as my invisible guide and mentor, encouraging, protecting, and sometimes gently chastising me. He is a miracle worker in so many ways. I’m living proof of that!

Try less, be more and let more be done

When I fully accepted my short-comings in this physical body and the world I saw, without judgement, I could finally relax, and see more of the Good and the God in myself, others and in Life. I know now, nothing I do, try or strive for can make me more like Jesus. It’s only in trying less and being more that I am more like Him, allowing the words and works of Good to continue to be done in the simplest, natural and perfect way.

In the end the only way I could close the gap with Jesus was to separate myself and Jesus from religion. After 25 years, I finally took Christ out of religion, and I now embrace that which I tried so hard to deny, to understand, and that which I was so scared of, as Being a true reflection of my Good and Sacred Self. https://ezinearticles.com/?My-Search-for-God-Came-to-an-End-When-I-Discovered-the-Power-of-Self-Acceptance&id=9442152

An Inspired poem by Marie Brunger

I AM the Way
I felt scared
Inadequately prepared
And I despaired
At the thought of walking in Jesus's shoes
Until I heard the news;
We are not asking you
To walk in his shoes
Only to choose
To let the Holy Son come
To walk in your shoes with you
As one ...
Suddenly it made sense
The relief was immense
No longer afraid
The decision was made
To simply agree
To let it be
And immediately
I let go
I felt the flow
Of the Christ energy
Move through me
And I knew it was done
Two wills became one
A new life begun
as I AM
