Hello I'm Jess and new here to the forum. I was saved by Christ last year though I was always raised by my parents who were Christians I just never was really all that into it, till now. I have to say my life been hard sometimes but I know god as been there for me. My only thing I did not get was learning about him in the Bible. Since I struggle with learning issues it has been hard to understand his word and all about him. I been wanting to be a part of a community who would accept me for me and maybe give advice and help me understand his ways more. I also like to contribute and make some friends here as well. I'm a bit shy and quite at first but I warm up eventually. Not sure what else to say but glad to be here. See you all around.

Hi Jess,
Welcome! I'm fairly new myself. It sounds like your Mom and Dad did a good job raising you. It is also very good that your desire is to better understand the Word of God for it will make you strong and enable you to grow in God's grace, which will make your journey here on earth fruitful to both yourself and others . I believe asking for wisdom in the Word of God is something the Lord will always answer since His desire is to edify you in Himself that you might draw closer to Him and grow in His grace. I'm the father of girls myself, although they are all married now and having children of their own. My son is our youngest but even he has now completed his freshman year in college. Now as a Dad I always try and do the most I can for them because I love them dearly but in love I am not as forthright in love as God is. So what is the desire of God in His wanting you to grow and flourish in Him? Well I believe Jesus spelled it out here in the comparison between parents and their children.

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking also see (Matt. 7:7–11 )
“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”
Luke 18:9-14

So the Lord will, because of His love for you which He proved by dying for you and bearing your sins, give to you what you ask. For asking to understand His Word better is not an ask that is rooted in a selfish motive but in your motive to understand His message to you with godly wisdom. Know then that if you ask Him you shall receive it.

And may God bless your time here abundantly!
In Christ, Pat
