What is Kristian Thinkin?

Kristian Thinkin, pronounced Christian Thinking, is a complilation of thoughts and questions about faith, life, and God.

In 1THESS 5:21 prove all things; hold fast that which is good. In other words it is not wrong to question all things. When we think through things, persuing truth, God does not dissappoint us and our faith is stronger for it. This blog is just that. Questions and thoughts. Some with answers, some that are open ended. Enjoy and keep an open mind.

The Christian Path

When I think about the Christian path, the first thing that comes to mind is a road, like the one from Pilgrims Progress and a really tall, windy mountain. I never see any valleys or green meadows on this walk, just that rugged, treacherous, uphill climb. It made me realize that how we view our lives has so much to do with how we live them. Too often we visualize the worst about our lives or the outcome of things and walk in defeat before we've even tried the mountain path. Defeat is not what God wants for us. It takes some practice to re-define our walk with the Lord and reset our defeated ways of thinking. When I focus, and really try hard, I realize that our lives are not a walk on a straight path with the ground under us and the sky above. Our walk, no our life with Christ is three dimensional and multi sensory. Its up in the air at times, its deep under the ground of our hearts, sometimes is celebration with others and then there's the solitude of the dark. It evokes feelings that only your soul can taste and thoughts that only your eyes can see. It turns our human world upside down and inside out and then we realize that it was really our world that was in such a state of mess, and God brings us back to that place we were made to be in, with Him. For the rest of my life I will have heartache, drama, fear, and pain but for the rest of my life, my Lord has promised to take me through those things and not waste an ounce of my pain. He has promised us all victory because it is by the Hand of My God that victory is made.
