    Welcome to Worthy, Katya!

    Hello

    Welcome to Worthy, Sarah!
  3. I've gotten mine from Ikea and Trader Joe's. I've also seen some at Costco. I'd be afraid to leave my orchids outside, my cats are always getting into everything. 🐈
  4. Orchids are my favorite flowers, I have five plants in my room. They are white, purple, yellow, pink and white, and one has mini white flowers. I never knew they needed to cold to rebloom, but it makes sense since mine always bloom in the winter when my room gets cold. The pink and white one is my favorite, I've had it for about three years and it has bloomed for me twice. This last time it had twelve flowers and they are the large-sized ones. I once kidnapped an orchid plant from my local senior center. It was so lonely in a windowsill and hadn't been taken care of. I brought it home, re-potted it, and set it with my other orchids. I kept it a couple months until it bloomed, then took it back to the center. It turns out that a lady had left it there while she went on a trip (she was gone for months). She had just got back that week, was very happy with her orchid, and took it home. I didn't even know it was hers!

    Introduction

    Welcome to Worthy, Kristen!

    Dry Season

    Sometimes, when God feels distant from us, it is because there is an obstacle keeping us from God. It can be something we are putting before God, a fear, a person, even a dream or hope. For me, it was fear. Fear that I was not good enough, that I was a disappointment to God, and that I could never amount to anything of worth. It is best to go before God and ask if there is anything you are holding back. He will put it before you and when you give it to Him it will break down the wall. I also struggled with going back and forth, and learned from a message at a worship conference, that it was because I was only giving half my heart to God. I was not fully the world's or fully God's, I was torn between serving the flesh and serving the spirit. I learned that God did not want half of me, He wanted all of me. He could not transform me if I only gave Him half of what I had. I had to die to myself before I could live for Him. He says in Jeremiah 29:13, "And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." A video that has helped me is on Youtube by Pastor William Chung if you search "The meeting place increase your longing for God". God bless you, my sister in Christ.

    Encouraging Bible Verses

    "We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down but not destroyed;" 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 "And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness . . ." 2 Corinthians 12:9

    Overly Religious

    The Pharisees could have been said to be "overly-religious". I have always learned that Christianity is a relationship, not a religion. The Pharisees were religious legalists who were devoted to the laws and traditions, instead of being devoted to God Himself. There are people like them nowadays too. They worry and debate over whether the Sabbath is on Sunday or Saturday, and whether you can eat shellfish because they're supposed to be "unclean". I think of Jesus' words when He said, "What is that to thee? Follow thou me." (John 21:22)

    Personality Types

    I have a wonderful friend who is an ENFJ, though I don't get to see her very often. It's said that ENFJs see greatness and potential in everyone. My friend is so encouraging, that when you're with her, you feel as if nothing is impossible. I never meant that people of opposite personalities wouldn't get along well, just that their interactions would be amusing to watch. Like my parents.

    Encouraging Bible Verses

    "Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation." Psalm 91:14-16

    Personality Types

    Very true. My parents are opposites, one is ISTJ, the other is ENFP. They definitely complement each other and shore up each other's weak points. Personally, I tend to gravitate toward personality types that are similar to mine. Most of my friends are I and T, though I do have an ESTJ friend who I share a lot of interests with.

    Personality Types

    Wow, I've been meeting a lot of INTJs lately. Supposedly it's one of the rarest types, making up about 1% of the population. I'm borderline S vs. N myself, I just identify with the ISTJ more.

    That sounds like a cool idea. I wonder how opposite personalities interact with each other . . .

    Just introducing myself

    Welcome to Worthy, Micah collins. I hope you'll keep searching for answers. I second Gary Lee on reading Case for Christ. Lee Strobel was an atheist, so his work will probably speak to you on a more personal level than the Answers in Genesis videos. He is also quite a rational and intelligent person. As for the gay issue, it is considered a sin by Christians, and goes against God's will for people's lives. It is the sin that we hate though, not the sinner, and God offers complete forgiveness and restoration when we repent. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9 I will be praying for you, PledgedToGod
  15. I recently discovered the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator through some friends and was typed as an ISTJ (Introverted, Sensing, Thinking, Judging) The description was so accurate it was scary! I've asked several friends to take the test and their results are often surprising, yet usually end up being spot on. It's really helped me to be more understanding of the different ways people act and think, and contributed to being able to tone down my own often overly-critical attitude. Just curious as to whether any of you know your type and whether you think it's accurate. If you want to take the test, it's available at www.16personalities.com
