I don't know where to turn anymore. I feel like I have become a nuisance to everyone, because of how I feel. I want to believe and have the peace and joy that most Christians have. I want to be confident in my salvation.
Luiza, My heart cries out for you. I Praise God that you are here seeking the Lord.
Luiza, the fact that you are boldly crying out shows me that there is a faith already there. If there was no faith, you would not be posting this forum. Luiza, have you joined in and participated in any groups here yet? Here are some of our featured groups...
Jhn 1:1 In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God.
Jhn 1:2 He was in the beginning with God.
Jhn 1:3 He created everything there is. Nothing exists that he didn't make.
Jhn 1:4 Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone.
Jhn 1:5 The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.
Luiza, Do you have a bible? God's Word is alive. He speaks to us through His Word. How often are you able to be on line? If you do not have a bible, you can access one through the computer.
Yes, i do have a bible and I have read the book of John, but I think i need to read it again. Thank you for not giving up on me, and encouraging me like you are. I went to your page and read your story. It touched me so deeply. I yearn to have the immediate peace that you had when you asked Christ to come in to your life. How is your husband doing with his faith?
I am sorry that I did not respond earlier. I wasn't sure what to say... My husband does not yet know the Lord, I would appreciate prayers around that if the Lord brings him to mind for you, and if you feel impressed to do so.
Luiza, continue to seek the Lord with your whole heart. He Loves You! Do not turn back.
1 Chronicles 28:9
"And Solomon, my son, get to know the God of your ancestors. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and with a willing mind. For the Lord sees every heart and understands and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him. But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever."
Continue to cry out to Jesus. If it means that you are down on the ground with nothing left in you, cry out to Him! He hears our prayers, His Strength is made perfect in our weakness.
I completely understand what you are going through. My husband is going through something similar with me, as you are with your husband. I just said a prayer for your husband. I hope he starts seeking Him as I am trying to right now. Don't give up on him, it's very hard for some of us. There is a ministry called Keep Believing, by Pastor Ray Pritchard, it might help. http://www.keepbelieving.com/
Dear Luiza...I may not as well versed or equipped with scriptures from the bible...though of course you have to read the bible to know more of His Words to know about your purpose in life and to know what He wants you to do. But from the story of human being...I could tell you this....before Christ came to the world to save the world, the world was so chaotic. Human beings have no value at all because they were just counted as mere tools or almost like animal to be value only for production or the glory of his earthly king or things like that. People were killed, were abused and have no access to salvation at all. The people of Israel who were supposed to be the model for knowing the real God were so busy with themselves, they even dissapointed God. So by the coming of Jesus and then by His sacrifice and then by the Spirit of God endowed to all the apostles, disciples and saints who bear witness to Him, then we grow in our knowledge of Who our real Lord is. I mean you can see that almost all aspect of current good civilisation were actually influenced by this Christian movement, if we want to be honest with ourselves. You can see the large scale of His work in the world. But you can also see the individual scale in your own life by letting your self be guided by Him through the Bible. Read it in the feeling of missing Him so much in your life.God will always be with us all, believe it.
Hallalueh, Whether you know it or not, God seeks you first and now that you
are seeking to know Him, You are at the beginning of a new and glorious way
of living. You are definately at the right place to learn, be encouraged and one
day, to encourage others. We are all here for you! If you go to my page, and read my story, I am sure it will help you in your journey with Christ. I have been
so blessed, to have had God watch over me my whole life and not even realize it until just a little over a year ago. I know that you are chosen by God, so relax and enjoy every minute with him. He loves you just as you are!
This is a story I remember when I first gave my life to God and thought it might help. .......A bunch of scientist decided that the world had out grown God so they called him to come to them. When God arrived one scientist stepped forward and told God that man can now do all that He has done. God listened to the scientist talk and asked them if they can create life and the scientist said they could. God told them to show him. One of the scientist bent over and picked up a handful of dirt and God said "No you have to create dirt first."
I'm not sure that will help but if can see where the story is headed it might let in a glimmer of hope for you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and I hope we can meet in the final reward.
Who is your father ? Who creat your grand father and so on ....
So God created Heaven & all things on Earth. ( The Science,Laws,Nature,Biology,Engineering,so on )
Jesus was sent by our God, the one and only creator. He was in the history, he lived to die for our sins on the Cross. Read GENESIS and JOHN.
Will every Father wants to see their son suffer in pain ?
JESUS loves us and gives us everlasting life without suffering.
Believe Jesus and your life changes for better tomorrow.
It happened to me, I once was praying idols, now I am in Christ.
