    Hello everyone: My name is Natalie and I am new to this site. I have an issue that I struggle with on a frequent basis, and would like to know how you, as a Christian, handle it. I struggle with taking things personally. I have difficulty differentiating between feeling hurt that a boundary has been crossed, and simply making things that are not about me personally. I want to learn how to think in a biblical manner on this issue and I would appreciate any biblical wisdom on this subject. Thank you for reading this. Have a great day:)

    I was told this as a babe in Christ. Took me awhile to get. Hope it helps... ... I can have my feelings, but my feelings cant have me.

    Welcome, nataly. Many people have this problem. Part of it is a matter of maturing in Christ. Some of it is needing to die to self. Some is realizing that people treated Christ badly and He told us that we would be treated the same way. So sometimes it is Christ in us who is being treated badly. Blessings, Willa

    That is not really comparable to Scripture, though. In the Bible, we are not dealing with one six word sentence for which we have no historical, cultural or literary context. Interpretation is not a subjective exercise. The meaning isn't derived from the reader, but from the author. What is often the case is that people confuse application and interpretation. There can be only one interpretation. If we read a newspaper, a cookbook, a fictional novel, a book of Shakespearean poetry, we naturally adjust our thinking to accommodate the intent of the author. We don't assume the author has 50 different possible meanings or "interpretations." Our goal is to understand what the author wants us to understand. When it comes to the Bible, though, it seems like those rules we operate by in ordinary life simply go out the window and suddenly, no one is can understand it, no one can interpret it. We can interpret ANYTHING else, but the Bible it seems. But that is simply not the case. The Bible isn't hard to understand IF the Bible is your final authority and you know what it says. We do not have a perfect or exhaustive knowledge of everything it contains, but the Bible isn't a collection of riddles and God isn't trying to keep us in the dark. Any one can read and understand, make sense of and competently interpret Scripture in terms of what they need for life and spiritual growth and to be in relationship/fellowship with God. The more we grow, the more we learn. The Bible is a book that is designed to be studied and searched out. That's why there is no one single verse or chapter, or book of the Bible that contains all of the truth on any given subject. It has to be searched out, but too many people are brainwashed to think that they can't study it or understand it, and need someone else to do it for them. Pretty pathetic. Many people don't know God because they don't know the Bible and what is in it, simply because they have been told that they can't know it.

    Claiming to know God is watching this thread with distaste is a biting weapon that is used to diminish the ideals of others because they are not in accord with the one making presumptions they can speak for God. This thread is an example in itself of the holy spirit. Some are sealed but how many are empowered?

    Hey JohnD, I love that we all have access to prayer. Sad but true, it is something that we often forget about till we realize that what we have been trying has not been working. Please keep my dad and stepmom in your prayers. My dad is pastoring overseas and just in April and May alone have had five break-ins. They have fortunately not been hurt. But would appreciate prayers for their safety.

    Wow, thank you, Brother! Your comments/replies always make me smile. The beauty of it all is that the Gospel message never changes... and whether it is given by a man or a woman, it is the Holy Spirit who takes that message and does the work in the hearts of the hearers!

    Did enjoy that OneLight, And as I`ve just popped in, (time out from the ever long, never ending debate) and would like to give my two cents worth. The ministries of the ascended Lord, (5 fold) are given to the Body whether some recognise them or not. However when we are talking of leaders over man`s organisations, there are many reasons why women have not been given positions there - having children, (therefore took longer to work up the hierarchy), man`s prejudice, tradition, the amount of administration that is really the job, etc etc. Marilyn.

    Praying for accurate results for any tests so that a correct diagnosis can be made. Also praying for complete healing and that your lungs might be clear, so that you can breathe easily without any obstruction or difficulty.

    Welcome~! ~ See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good, for one another, and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 (New Heart English Bible)

    Thank you all so very much. The doctor informed me today that my dad has a severe infection. He has stopped eating and has lost almost 20 pounds within the last 10 days. It is heartbreaking to see a man that was once so strong, (a Korean War veteran) now so incredibly frail. I know when the Lord calls him home, it is HIS will. I pray for strength to see my daddy go. Thank you all, again, for your heartfelt prayers. I appreciate them very much. God bless each of you.

    Just pray. For ourselves and each other. Fight the urge not to pray. Pray for the Jewish people. Pray for America and our President. Fight the urge not to pray. So much of "the Grand Illusion" is intended for keeping us off our knees.

    Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich was the “DNC emails” Wikileaker: Confirmed New electronic evidence confirms Seth Rich had contact with Wikileaks before his death BY SHEPARD AMBELLAS - 05.16.2017 WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — It’s really no secret why Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered almost a year ago, nor has it been, considering how Hillary Clinton’s Fmr. campaign adviser John Podesta, along with his fellow campaign manager Robbie Mook, and a gentleman by the name of Joel Benson were found to have plotted to ‘make an example’ of the “suspected leaker” for interacting with Wikileaks, the organization that ultimately released the damning “DNC emails” which cost Rich his life last June. It’s also apparent that law enforcement investigators were told to stand down and to portray Rich’s murder as a botched robbery and it’s apparent that the cover-up orders came from above. Read more @ Intelihub How can police call this a robbery? When nothing was taken from the body of the young man that was shot in the back?

    Now that is the type of clothes I remember wearing in the 50s--full circle skirt, wide black stretch belt, bobby sox and saddle shoes. But not that blouse--much too risky. I keep seeing an outfit I used to wear on an I Love Lucy rerun!

    While we know that God never changes, our feelings and even our circumstances will. When I am lost, or God seems silent, I am reminded of the passage where it says David encouraged himself in the Lord.

    You made my point. You made my point . ONLY the Author of the Bible can properly interpret the Bible. 2 Peter 1:20–21 (NIV84) 20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. All scripture came by this method.
