Complementary and Alternative Health Care
I think the definition that describes me is people who become religious through believing in Jesus. For year now, I have grown to appreciate Christianity and understand how to grow my faith. However, I feel am still yet to be passionate and caring about what Jesus inspires me to do. It is clear that most religious people are confused and do understand how to follow God’s commands and expectations over their lives. One of the reasons is the lack of faith in Jesus Christ and his power to change people’s lives. Even though many of us are Christians, I still feel that we lack the faith to trust in the power of God.
Personally, if I had a greater faith, I would be passionate and grow an intimate relationship with God. Prayer is a critical element of showing a person’s religious devotion and commitment. Christians are expected to pray to God at all times both in times of Joy and times of need. For a while now, I feel I have relaxed in my prayer life and am not able to reach out to God’s presence. Prayer is the only way believers can communicate to their God (Tomkins, et al., 2015). A healthy prayer life leads to a high level of faith in God’s ability to transform our lives.
Having a passionate and caring hear for God gives someone hope and ability to trust in God’s healing. I think that when I am sick, I can pray to God to forgive me and heal me from my illnesses. Religion is about surrendering to a supreme being with the ability to change and improve your life (Migliore, 2014). I know my trust and love for Jesus Christ can improve way of life and remove all barriers to my success. However, strong dedication and commitment to his will and listening to his biblical words is important.
