I am quite happy to have found this site. I did some reading around before I joined, and am pleased to genuine Christian fellowship and sharing here. I really need it right now!
I just moved to a new state 4 weeks before I had a baby. The labour was a week long and medically scary and extremely stressful. Then, my poor baby had to spend a week in the hospital starting on his second day of life for several issues. Thank God, he is ok now at 8 weeks.
I am just about depleted on all levels. It's really tough being cut off from all family, friends, my home, my church and familiar places under such stress. I know God is there, but I must admit, I'm a bit miffed with him at the moment and too tired to think straight, let alone pray more than, 'help!'.
I tried going to several churches here, but so many of them have been 'rock band churches' where people there seem to expect to be entertained rather than worship God (I have nothing against different cultural expressions or musical styles- I wouldn't mind a church with electronica! I just object to a self-centered, glutted attitude and self-serving social club). I did find one church to go to where the people are full of love, but there are limited fellowship opportunities. So I am feeling rather isolated and glad to have this forum to interact with other Christians.
Thanks for reading, hope to interact with others here!
