A Journey To Goddess
<snip>
So one afternoon I sat down in the living room, I remember that day all to well, it was hot and muggy and I had the front door open, and my dog Boo was in the basement trying to cool off on the concrete floor. I felt so numb. So I sat there miserable with myself and I begun to pray to God. I just talked openly there all by myself, tears streaming down my face, begging for some kind of an answer. Not feeling like I was getting anywhere, I grabbed a pen and pad of paper I felt like I needed to go right back to the very beginning, right to the fundamental basics and so I wrote down the question: Do I believe in God? I wrote down an answer quickly YES.

The next question: Do I believe God to be the one and only? Here I couldnt formulate an answer so quickly. The reason why is because Christ is said to be a mighty god, and Satan is said to be god of this world. So even though I was brought up in a monotheistic religion, to say God is the one and only God is really not all that simple. So it was here where I had to really think about what it was that I actually believed in, because it was no longer simple.

As I continued to pray, I decided to take a chance and be completely open and honest. I say this with great reservation, because in the way in which I was raised and taught the bible, I was about to commit heresy, a taboo that is most certainly forbidden for any Christian to entertain. I took that deep breath and admitted what I felt I longed for and needed my entire life. I needed my mother, not my father. So during my prayer, I asked for HER.
