So tonight I was talking with a friend of mine about a life situation. She said she’s been praying for me about this and she has every hope that God has heard and will do something about it. Okay, so she’s causally religious. To each their own of course. If it works for you, great. I’m not one to be openly militant toward the matter, and I feel we all have the right to happily do our own thing with our spirituality.
The problem I have with this is that I have been approaching the very same situation she’s admitted to praying about, from a left handed, and magical perspective. Obviously we’ve got two very opposing forces on the same one thing needing a change. I know I’ve posted before on this board, just a feel like I;m getting closer to a result and then seeing it fall apart again and again, one step forward, a stumble back, a hope ahead and a trip over my feet sending it all to the floor. I can’t help but wonder if this opposition is the reason why.
I didn’t bother to ask her not to include me in her prayers. The fact is, it seems, in general a person is going to do it anyway, and if I did ask her not to, she would only pray that I would accept it and rethink my own decision to not be Christian.
