My Thoughts: Church

Ah yes, a topic that can cause some controversy and stir the pot a little. Yes, I will be discussing my thoughts on the church today and how I really feel.

I’m going to jump right into things here. First and foremost I do believe in God. But as for the church currently? I don’t like it. I don’t like it one bit. The past couple of churches I’ve been to have had some serious splits and issues. The one I’m at now (which I won’t be there much longer) the Pastor has done a lot of good but the older members seem to wanna run him out and have essentially done that. Which is a shame, but hey they got what they want so they’re probably happy for it. The other church I was at the Pastor had way too much control and essentially ran everyone else off.

I’ve seen this happen twice now and essentially I’m just done with church. I don’t see many churches any more trying to do “the will of God” as so as their doing the will of themselves. Now, not all. This isn’t a full on church bash post as much as me releasing some of my frustrations through this outlet I have here.

Now, in my time at these two different churches I have meet some great people who have become great friends. I’ve also seen these people reach out to do better and seek God, that’s awesome. Those people I admire. And of course, like anywhere else there are also sheep’s in wolves clothing there too.

If you’re reading this you’re probably surprised because chances are you see my tweets and you wouldn’t think I go to church sometimes, and that’s ok because I don’t really portray that. I have to say, a few years back church and God was huge in my life but as life has gone on I’ve seen things go down at churches and in my own life. I’ve been reflecting as to whether this is something worth pursuing or attending and honestly, once I’m done at this church here I’ll probably take quite a break from attending church. I get tired of trying to attend new and different churches and get the vibe that most are fake or possibly judging me. I’ll just do me.

Like I said earlier, I still believe in God. But I’m not that person that will pursue Him like some others will. I’m just going to live my life and do the best that I can. Plus, I don’t feel like I’m being real when I seek Him. I feel like I’m playing some character that isn’t me. I don’t want to do that. I want to be me. The ridiculous person that isn’t afraid to be himself despite what others say.

So, all in all these are my thoughts and frustrations. Have a good day and keep on the look out for more blogs in the future.

Travel: Silverthorne, Colorado

Silverthorne

Silverthorne, Colorado

I’m writing today about a little town about an hour East of Denver, Colorado called Silverthorne. I’ll explain briefly on how to get there. Once in Denver find Interstate Highway 70 and take that East for about an hour. That’s all. Also, this photo which I found on Google of Silverthorne is looking down onto the town from the mountain. I love the picture and wanted to use it on this post here.

Ok, to the meat and potatoes of this post. I want to talk about Silverthorne because I was fortunate enough to visit this beautiful town located in the mountains during the summer of 2015. I fell in love with it instantly. It was so refreshing and so beautiful. We even managed to see a little bit of snow cap on one of the mountaintops when in town the first evening there.

What I love is that this is a small town, yet full of life. When we would go into town the people were nice and scenery was nice. What I enjoy most about was how some of the stores in town had a cabin like look to them. They didn’t look like normal stores, but mountain stores, you know?

Well anyway, this town is perfect for if you’re getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city and want some nice and cool refreshing mountain air. It’s a perfect getaway for anyone looking for a quiet weekend or week (depending on how long you want to stay).

I also want to say as I mentioned above that we went during the summer. I have no idea how it is during the winter. I can imagine busy since it’s a perfect spot for those coming into town to ski and snowboard. But during the summer it’s quiet and peaceful.

Anyway, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed this. I know I didn’t give a whole lot of info but maybe gave you an idea to where Silverthorne, Colorado is and perhaps make it your next vacation spot? I’m sure there is a lot more info out there but more of what I wanted to do was let you know that it existed and give a surface idea of the town.

My Thoughts: To write a book or not to write a book?

So, I’ve wanted to write a book for a while now. As for what kind of book? I have no clue! I just know I’ve always wanted to write one.

I’ve found myself lately trying to brainstorm as to what I could write about and go after it. All I seem to know how to write is a fictional love story, which is alright but seems so generic. I want to think outside of the box and write something new and creative like J.K. Rowling did when she came up with the wonderful world of Harry Potter. That’s something I’d like to do. Not like Harry Potter obviously, but write a story that continues a few books along and take the readers on a WONDERFUL journey.

So, in the meantime I’ll just blog while I figure out what it is I’m going to write a book about. Besides, I may just end up going for the sappy fictional love story anyway. It could turn out well? Only one way to find out…

My Thoughts

Hey, I’m Steven.

If you’re reading this then either you know me or know of me through my social media. I enjoy blogging but I have to admit I haven’t been the most consistent when it comes to blogging. This blog that I’m sharing with you now is just an overview of what’s ahead in the future of what I’ll be writing about. Now, the stuff I’ll share on here will be just starting off but as I expand and learn more about life and what not I’ll add on to this other than the few topics I’ll talk about below.

Travel

I do plan on discussing about travel because it’s something that not only I enjoy but most of you enjoy too. I’ll talk about places I’ve been to and places I’ve love to go visit in the future.

Life

I’m going to discuss about life here too. I’m not just talking about my life (which I will share some of that with you, too) but life in general. Maybe an inspirational quote here or there or maybe ways to help each other out in life because let’s face it, life does suck. We all need people in our lives to help us or remind us that we can still face it head on everyday.

Food

This will definitely be one of my favorite topics. I’ll discuss some of my favorite foods and maybe share recipes on here too. But I’ll only share those if I know how to make them. Reading recipes has always been difficult for me because I’m a learn by sight person. But anyway, I’ll definitely be discussing food. I love food!

My Thoughts

Last, but certainly not least I’ll be discussing my thoughts. I’ll share what’s on my mind. It can be of a variety of topics. So you never know what you’ll get with this one. Stay tuned.

That’s it for now. I’m trying to decide whether I want to write another to get the brain flowing or not. I may since I’m in the mood for it tonight so stay tuned for more!
