    My Christian Friend's Bad Testimony
    My dear Worthy Family,
      Blessings to all. I am turning on to you again because I am confuse of something that I feel I need to correct or should I? Four years ago, a friend of mine asked my help for a job. I recommended her to my sister's agency and assuring my sister my confidence and trust of her because she is also a christian.  I personally trained and taught her the basics before I left the company just to make sure that she would help my sister. Last week, I found out that person done a grave damage to my sister company. She stole money from the branch funds which she was assigned. To make matters worst, clients lost trust and confidence to the company because of what she did. I have also learned that she is not performing well in spite of her being given a second chance by my sister. She is becoming more unreliable everyday. Sadly, even her being a christian has been questioned by her colleagues who are mostly unbelievers. She even uses her church's activities as an alibi when she don't get the job done.  I am planning to talk to her very soon but I am not sure if it is the right thing to do. Because I cannot understand why someone who is more mature as a christian than I, who even knows the bible more than me could done such things. I cannot understand what she has learned as a christian is not being practiced but instead, is giving a very bad testimony.
       I would welcome with grateful heart if you can give me inputs on how to tell her and not sound righteous or judgmental. I am not a perfect christian too but stealing and dishonesty surely doesn't glorify God. I really felt used too because I believed her that time when she was asking my help and how her family turned their back on her. I am so disturbed now and actually afraid of what might come out of my mouth. And I really need your prayers too for God's wisdom on this situation.
    Yours truly,

    "Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts." Psalms 139:23

    The journey starts now. I am ready to face the challenges in store ahead for I know that my Lord is with me. Thank you God that you always hears me and knows what is in my heart. Thank you, God for teaching me to pray. Thank you, God that you are now placing the things in Your heart to mine as well. Thank you, God for giving me the spirit of obedience. And most of all, Thank you for your stubborn Love that still loves me unconditionally in spite of my sins.

    "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6

    And I shall be because my God is with me.

    In Jesus name, I pray....Amen

    In one voice and heart, Gary - I echo this with you. Thank you. God is molding me now and I know that His Way is the only Way. I know now that no matter how much I do things with my best, it is nothing compared to what He will make of me. He truly loves me because He uses His angels like you and everybody here in Worthy to keep my heart and spirit in focus to where He wants me to be. Thank you very very much.

    I truly needed this, JohnDB. God truly hears whats in my heart right now. I know that praying and fasting is what I need for this is a very personal moment with me and God. I will be using all of these as my guide for I did ask Him how. He answered me through you. Oh, I am really blessed. Truly, God works mysteriously and does answer. He is in control with everything that is happening to me since I finally lifted everything to Him. As I mentioned before, it had been confusing, its seems its a Yes, and it seems its a No. Prayer and Fasting is what I want to fully hear without distractions or confusions. Again, Thank you. Thank you. :-

    Thank you, Fresno Joe. Thank you so much for sharing the link, it just hit the not only my heart but my spirit. Thank you, Ronnie, He definitely gave me the peace when the going was got tough. Thank you, thehopefulcry2… at the end, God gave me the right heart and spirit to tackle of the mistakes that was replaying right before my eyes. Thank you, bopeep1909…I guess, God knows I won’t fit in the window….lol …so, He is making me see a bigger door to be sure that I get through there. Thank you, nebula and you are right, the outcome wasn’t what I have expected. But I have to admit, it was really quite confusing. The signs must be understood with the right spirit of wisdom. All I know now is that I am not strong. I can only go through with God on my side. I have learned that in everything I do, I just have to ask myself this question before anything else, does it Glorify His Name or me? Again, thank you all for being the instrument of God.

    How can I know God’s “ YES”?
    How can I know God’s “ YES”?

    I ask this question for years now. Although, I placed in my heart of His promise “Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9.

    Since the start of this year, I asked Him what His plans are for me. I am on this new journey with renewed spirit. But I need to be guided accordingly.

    In the past, I did lean on my own understanding. I do things thinking it’s His way, but I know now that it wasn’t. Today, I got great news about a chance to restart again a passion. It started two years ago and I did prayed for it. I really thought He said ‘Yes’ but it turned out that I got very hurt at the end. Somewhere along the way, I have misunderstood something. Somewhere along the way, I leap into thinking that it’s His Way. Somewhere along the way, I got blinded.

    Now, how can I really know this time He is saying ‘YES’ and GO this time? Is He telling me something else? I would really love to hear your thoughts …. Thank you.
