Many Christians get religious beliefs and church attendance mixed up with being Spiritual. Our spiritual identity - so to speak - is being close to God and how closely we relate to the person of JESUS (God manifest as one of us) no plus to that or minus.
It's Jesus, Not Religion
Jesus is Life, not religion I don’t know
how people got the two mixed up
Jesus invited us to feast and sup….
Life Abundant and to be on the way up.
To rejoice that He’s Coming day by day
and to live afresh in His Life giving Way
Not have to say often “Lord give me a break”
So to live truly for Jesus’ sake is to say
at night blessed memories He makes.
“Life’s what you make it” that’s what they say
Explore this Life, a bright new way__
when He’s in your days you can sing like a lark
but that’s not only to play a harp.
Life’s an adventure, that is true
not religious__ yes sing a new tune.
If Jesus does not improve your day__
Then where’s His Promise
“A New Living Way?”
That’s not religious but one that’s real
the one with His Blessing wears His Seal.

A Glorious Fast
Oh what a fast, a glorious fast
from earthly chores and religious laws
I invite you to spend a day this way
You'll find it makes such a difference.
From the cares of the world
and the cares of the church
that's partly in bondage like the world.
A walk with God is not a religious exercise
but one that's meant to be a blessing.
What is it for you__ Relationship or Religion?

The one I can Trust
To the one who adores
I truly give more
For the one I can trust
does not lust for this world
and all the things it affords…
But rather give thanks
when I stretch out My Hand
and make them blessed in the land.
Whom are you seeking
to whom are you tweaking
Is it I Who poured out My Grace?
I send you Love on the wings of a Dove
open your eyes and see My Face.

Allowed to be Jovial
One can feel Jovial
when Jesus' Presence is near
He desires you not to be sombre
but to fill your heart with Cheer.
His Sacrifice was to make a Way
to bring Heaven into your soul__
And do remember that He Rose Again
so He could make you Whole.

Jesus promised us "Life Abundant" (a fuller life) and referred to Himself as the "Bread of Life"....I pray that on my two Web-Sites, you will discover what this means.
