    Your best advice in 4 or less words?

    All For God's Glory
  2. "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." 1 Cor 1:18 The gospel flies in the face of the status quo and what is trending at the moment. Popularity and fitting in is really important to the world. They often look upon you as an embarrassment. In my early days with the Lord, I was called a Jesus freak at public school. Another comeback with those not on the Lord's side is, "Well-that's good for you, but it's not for me. " It's as if they almost view God as a mere hobby that they happen to not take an interest in. Anyone else run into this response in their personal encounters with the unsaved?

    Help Me Complete the Worthy Member Alphabet!

    T-for turtletwo... er, that would be me. That was an easy one for me. he-he and happened to be one you couldn't think of at the time of your post. Cute game idea , by the way. I just found it now, but I'll come back and play more.
  4. Thanks for pointing this out. I went to Ephesians 1 just now and looked at it more closely. I found several 'in whom', just as you'd said. Oddly enough, I never thought about it that much in the way that you'd explained it. So I am glad you brought it to my attention.

    car selling is an answer to prayer

    My son had been needing to sell his car. By the grace of God, this worked out better and quicker than we ever expected. I am grateful to the Lord for His provision and wanted to share with the worthy family this answer to prayer.
  6. Good advice. I can attest to that. I have been making a point of doing that lately and it definitely helps. In fact, my posting this poem is a way of reaching out to those who may need to hear they are not isolated in their struggles. It is good to practice edification as the scripture sets forth. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says,"Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do." Sometimes I am just in too much physical pain to actually do something to help. But in those moments I can still pray for others... Intercession is so important.
  7. PLEASE READ THIS EVEN THOUGH LONG ( INCLUDES A POEM I WROTE WITH YOU IN MIND) A POEM FOR YOU GUYS WITH A LONG BUT HEARTFELT INTRO: TONIGHT I WAS FEELING DOWN AND QUESTIONING THE MEANING OF MY LIFE. IT WAS THEN THAT GOD LED ME TO WRITE THIS POEM. I FELT LIKE I SHOULD SHARE IT WITH YOU GUYS. I KNOW THERE MUST BE OTHERS OUT THERE WHO FEEL THIS WAY, TOO. SO THIS POEM GOES OUT WITH LOVE FROM ME TO YOU. IT IS DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO STRUGGLE WITH CONFUSION, LONELINESS AND DEPRESSION. WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN STORIES AND UNIQUE REASONS. MINE HAS MUCH TO DO WITH HOW LIMITED I AM BY MY CHRONIC HEALTH ISSUES AND DISABILITIES THAT KEEP ME HOME BOUND. WHAT'S YOUR STORY? SHARE, IF YOU LIKE. I HOPE THIS CAN SPUR ON A DISCUSSION OF WAYS TO COUNTERACT SATAN'S LIES THAT TRY TO DRAG US DOWN. FOR ME THERE IS NOTHING MORE POWERFUL THAN THE CROSS. 1 Corinthians 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." PLEASE COMMENT. I'D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS!!!! SOMETIMES I FEEL SOMETIMES I FEEL SO VERY SMALL LIKE NO ONE KNOWS I'M HERE AT ALL I WONDER WHY I'M ON THIS EARTH AND FEEL I HAVEN'T ANY WORTH BUT THEN I THINK THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT AND I MUST WALK BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT FOR IF I TRUST WHAT SCRIPTURES SAY I KNOW IT CAN NOT BE THAT WAY THOUGH FOLKS AT TIMES MAY BE UNKIND THE SAVIOR DIED WITH ME IN MIND HE LOVED ME AND HE TOOK MY PLACE SO ALL MY SINS HE COULD ERASE THERE WILL BE TIMES I FEEL ALONE AND MY LIFE'S PURPOSE SEEMS UNKNOWN BUT SATAN CAN NOT TAKE FROM ME WHAT JESUS DID AT CALVARY!

    urgent need for your prayers

    I just got a call from my mom's nursing home. She is at 530 blood sugar! This is the highest reading she has ever had. They contacted the dr who gave her an additional 12 units of insulin. I am concerned about this danger. Please pray God helps my mom.

    The Great Physician, Jesus

    I have injuries from March 25th that refuse to heal. Neither the doctor nor the chiropractor have succeeded in helping them. My only hope now is the Great Physician, Jesus. I am in such pain daily! Please pray for me.

    Job's comforters alert

    I found these replies helpful. Thanks to each of you. Lord willing, I hope we can keep the discussion going for the sake of others in a similar situation.

    Job's comforters alert

    How do you handle 'Job's comforters' ? Sadly, this includes too many in the body of Christ. I have a dear Christian friend who is always 'beating me up with the Bible' (instead of comforting and edifying me with it.) She especially loves to quote Galatians 6:7 "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap." I injured myself a month ago by overreaching and over lifting. She keeps reminding me that I brought this on myself. The devil is using this to make me view God in a harsh manner and struggle with His forgiveness (for my stupid wrong choice of overexertion.) Can any of you relate to this spiritual conflict I'm in? Is my friend off base or correct? I feel as long as I'm disabled from this & in much pain I will think it is the wrath of God that he hasn't answered my cries for healing. Any discussions of this would be a real help.
  15. Can anyone out there relate? On April 25th I attempted to do something too strenuous for me and incurred an injury that just isn't healing. For nearly a month now I have been in much pain and disability from this stupid wrong decision. Perhaps I should call it a sin? (Because I gambled with my body and now I am paying the price.) I feel like God might be angry with me and is letting me suffer the consequences of bad judgement (because I should never have risked it.) I wish I could turn back the clock and undo pushing my body like that! Is God punishing me? I can't shake the guilt. What if I NEVER heal (or heal wrong??) I'm scared.
