Hi, and thank you for stopping by.
The Lord Alone has a few purposes. To begin with, this website was created as a place to discuss codependency and narcissistic abuse recovery for Christians. I somewhat abandoned that, but I might get back to this topic at some point.
Later, this website was used as a second look at my first blog, http://www.kindlingtruth.com. I abandoned this website because of an on-going internal battle I was dealing with that caused me to come face to face with an aspect of myself that I did not like at all. I thought about what Jesus said, “You do know know what spirit you are of.” This deterred me from continuing the work for a few months.
As the time passed, I felt ashamed. I thought, is this the best that I can do? Is this all I have to offer up to Jesus? So, I decided to submit the work to the judgment of the Lord, or attempt to do so as best as He allows so that I can take a second look and redo some of the work.
So far, this re-evaluation has inspired these article series’:
As I continue looking at the work on my first blog, I will write new article series’ and republish works that seem good. The main focus here is Christian doctrine and living a faithful Christian life.
This website also includes an on-going work in the Proverbs, with the aim of looking at applying the lessons in Proverbs to Christianity in the United States. This aim has evolved over time and may continue to evolve, with the primary goal for myself to establish greater consistency and faithfulness in service to Jesus.
This website also includes works that I write as I feel led to, and these usually involve some form of Christian exhortation or random ideas that I am considering.
It would probably be simpler if I had a narrowed focus or niche, but I don’t really, other than this:
This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:11-12).
Jesus is often neglected and rejected, even today, but it is in Jesus alone that we can find salvation. He gave Himself so that we can live, and we should be faithful to the salvation we received–salvation that came at so great a cost as the blood of the Son of God.
If you would like to talk about the articles written here or chat about your own Christian walk, feel free to reach out — even if we disagree. I appreciate talking to believers of all backgrounds who are serious about following Jesus, or want to become more serious. I also appreciate those who would hold me accountable for the things I write and challenge me. I love to talk about the faith in all capacities, really. ❤
I decided to keep my old email address, for simplicity’s sake. You can contact me, Amanda, at email@example.com anytime.
