Uncompartmentalized Faith

I picture my faith as Who I Am, the core of my identity, the immovable part of my soul.

All other parts of my life– writing, friends and family, media, work, philanthropy, choices– are the parts of a beautiful and intricate mobile, of which my relationship with Jesus is the centerpiece.

A blog reader told me, “I appreciate that your faith doesn’t happen in a vacuum and is not relegated to one part of your blog.”

It couldn’t be. My faith doesn’t fit in a compartment. It is the compartment.

For those of you who follow my blog because of OCD, writing, or otherwise– and who do not share my faith– thank you for never asking me to be only a part of who I am. I have the best blog readers, and I’m grateful.

  1. Yes. Jesus is just who I am all about too. Take Him out, well then, I guess you take me out too. I’m certainly not the best or most devoted follower of His in the world. Not anywhere close to it. But I AM His. I just am and always will be.
