Welcome to my page. My name is Scott and the words contained in this site are my attempt to write clearly about my relationship with God and Jesus and to provide testimony about the everlasting God.
My journey has been a rocky one and I currently find myself having left the religion of my family and currently attending a loving Baptist church. Throughout the 18 months I spent outside of organised religion I was determined to maintain my authentic, spiritual connection to my God and my oldest and most loving brother, Jesus.
Regardless of anything else, it is a very difficult task to remain spiritually strong without a community to assist you in that endeavour. Oddly, despite some doctrinal differences (that I don’t think matter), I find myself more attuned to my church community than I ever have previously.
For disclosure, my upbringing was as a Christadelphian but I no longer consider myself anything other than a Christian and Son of God (if I may be so bold).
The journey out of my previous church began with a retreat that I attended back in 2017. It has not been easy nor comfortable and I am beset by doubts all the time. You will find many doubts expressed within the site.
I am also overcome by sin and weakness, carrying many burdens too heavy for me. These I cast on my Lord and rely on His grace and love to sustain me.
We are sanctified where we are found.
I do not consecrate myself to be a missionary or a preacher. I consecrate myself to God to do His will where I am, be it in school, office, or kitchen, or wherever He may, in His wisdom, send me.The Normal Christian Life (Watchman Nee)
God doesn’t need me to serve Him, but if I wish to serve Him, it will be on His terms, not mine.
You cannot learn surrender until all is stripped away and you have no choice but to surrender. There is no certainty in this life but God and His beautiful son. We need to keep this in our forefront every day.
