Are You Riding On Coattails?

From a very young age I have experienced God to be real in my life. I have the privilege of the Christian faith being passed down to me from both my father and mother's side of the family. Even so, I had to make a choice myself to accept God into my life. Those who just go through life on the coattails of their parents' faith (or anyone else's faith for that matter) without making it personally their own, end up falling away when the storms of life blow. The winds of opposition are so strong in this world that no one can keep a grip on someone else's faith to see them through. On the other hand, if that faith is ignited within their own heart, it doesn't matter where that storm may take them, they are firm and get right back up!


  1. Tammy, Great blog. Good information. I'll be reading more often. T. Lawrence

  2. I could not have said it better.....Faith works only if we trust God personally. God bless you today Tammy and may the "voice" He has given you expand to new heights. Kayla

  3. I totally agree! Especially if your parents were misinformed when they were young. It is your responsibility as an adult to make sure your life is where it has to be and that can be scary when you have to go against things that your parents drilled into you as children.
