Sin and Seperation

What exactly is sin?

To ME sin is anything that separates me from God. Anything that makes me want to hide from God.

Do you know that feeling I'm talking about? When you've done something or haven't done something and you want to hide?

Sometimes the way I hide is by getting busy. Because really you CAN'T hide from God. He knows your heart inside and out! He knows you better than you know yourself!

Before you know it you have a whole wall of sin built up between you and God and you find yourself in darkness and that's a scary place. How do you find your way out again? How do you break that wall down??

Do you break the wall down by doing righteous things?

By being good? When am I going to learn I can never be "good" enough?

Why do I get so rapped up in guilt?

1 Corinthians 1:30 30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.

It is only through JESUS that I can be righteous in God's eyes! I wish I could tattoo IT'S ALL ABOUT HIM HIM HIM HIM on my heart.

But I guess that's what the Holy Spirit is-He's a tattoo of sorts on my heart that keeps bringing me back and reminding me of JESUS.

What beautiful posts, Jennifer! Thanks for sharing. Yes, I know what you mean about secret sins. I have been needing to lose some weight, and when I snack, I feel like I'm sinning. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I will.

I love your tattoo analogy!!

Hi there Jennifer,
My names Peter and I'm a fellow believer in Christ. I've been watching your blog for quie some time now and felt the compassion to share something with you that will either scare you half to death or put you on fire like never before. I noticed your husband is sadly enough an athiest witch is actually an agnostic. Because in all reality for someone to be an athiest they'd have to know everything in the universe, impossible right? So here it is ...
Please goto
and click on the #3 tile and watch hells best kept secret. then after that turns your world upside down go ahead and click on #2 and they have one specifically for Athiest.
After that feel free to explore the rest of the site.
If you have any ?'s my e-mail is
your welcome and God bless you!

Peter happily married and on fire for the Most Holy and only God.

Hi, I have been reading your blogs for a while now. I have one question. Does your husband read your blogs ? If so, what does he think about putting your personal feelings on the internet ?

Dear Peter, I checked out the site. Thanks, it's great! They have some really good points I can't wait to share with my husband. It's so true what they say about the law, the law makes us see the need for Christ. That is exactly what happened to me, when I realized with great despair I could never follow the commandment to have no other Gods, I understood what Christ did for me and how much I needed Him. It was a beautiful moment I'll never forget. I've never felt so free in all my life, I felt like I could float!

To anonymous: Yes my husband knows I have a blog but he doesn't read it, never has. I have a tracker and keep watch of who comes and goes. In fact if I'm right you are from Virgina, am I right??

I always am crying & praying & laughing when I read your post. Even if your husband reads your blog, I want you to know how you are ministering to so many, and I believe that it so important to God. You said you can't wait til your husband gets saved so you both can work the harvest... Well girl, you are doing your far share of harvesting all by your self. I have so much love for you for it.

My prayers are with you
