My story with God
i grew up in the church and decided to give Christ control of my life when i was in high school. i struggled to know what that really looks like in every area of my life at the time and had an eating disorder when i felt pressured to be perfect. in college, i learned what it meant to have Christ have control over my mind and thoughts and i learned for the first time about spiritual warfare and the power of prayer and praying Scripture and the importance of meditating on his Word and putting on the full armor of God. i turned to boyfriends off and on over the years, and came up empty and seeking God again and then again. Every time, he's been faithful to meet me where I am. He's knows my every mistake and foul thought, but he knows me through and through and lifts me up with His encouragement every time. i've struggled with fear of people, and what they think, over what God thinks and have been so prideful in my short life- how foolish! But I praise God for helping me with my fears and anxieties because HE is freeing me up to live in love with Him. I only want to grow stronger in the Lord and not to backtrack. I feel like the Israelites; Why, why did you turn to the golden calf? Why do I? Lord, please stay close to me all the days of my life.
Other stuff about me:
made it through the first year of marriage. the second year is going way better so far. i love to play with my little dog. i enjoy teaching kids at the school where i work. i enjoy writing. i'm working on a teen's christian fiction right now. i also like to read. i'm reading the hobbit for the first time. i'm a big fan of beth moore books and studies. i want to feel better connected to the church where i attend. i have very few close friends right now, and need God's help to try again.

Earnestly I look for You Please come! (Family troubles)

Thank you for those of you who prayed for me about my temptation with anorexia. With God's help and prayer,

I've been able to face the temptation and seek some counseling. Although the counseling does not take my insurance and it is pricey. I hope and pray something will come through.



Why is it that some things seem to come all at once? My heart breaks for my family.



My dad has had trouble with alcohol for years upon years, trying in recent years to keep it more… Continue

Prayer Request about Anorexia Temptation

Posted on September 26, 2009 at 7:15am 1 Comment

Hi, It's been a while since I've been on here. I've asked

for prayer about my marriage. Please, if it's on your heart to

do so today, say a prayer that our marriage will become strong

and healthy. I've been tempted with an old lifestyle lately- one of

anorexia. I know that the devil is trying to make this look appealing

to me again. This temptation has come and gone, and I've given into it off and on, throughout the years since I was about 12 years old. My mom puts a… Continue

Please pray for my husband and me

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 6:24pm 6 Comments

My husband doesn't fully understand about my struggles with anxiety and depression. He's come across

to me as very supportive until he got very upset with me tonight saying that he's getting a lot done- more than me- that because I'm spending time with God- praying, reading Scripture, doing a Bible study, listening to Worship music. He's a believer, but I feel that God is wanting us to go much deeper with Him. I know - I have faith and hope- that I'm getting

better and I've been… Continue

Over the past year, I've developed an anxiety (again) in the car, whether it's driving or riding. I had this once before in my life during college, when I was in a dating relationship that wasn't healthy. I was a believer then and am now. I went through counseling then for anxiety and depression and for healing from past hurts in my childhood life that I was remembering and coming to terms with. I had been free from anxiety for over 2 years. Around Christmastime, and after being married last… Continue

Dear Morgan,

It was lovely meeting you on chat today. I just wanted to let you know that I have lifted you up to our Lord in prayer. ...I will continue to do that as The Holy Spirit brings you to mind.

Let me know how it goes with your computer. :)

Love in Christ, Carla

I shall certainly send out prayer for you, strangely I know how you feel as I sometimes have the same problems, it is part of who we are, but with all things can be overcome with the help of God who didn't doesn't give us a spirit of fear and something we must try to lose by believing that Our Father does hear and answer prayer and to ask in faith for it to be removed. Whenever you are afraid don't give in to it, but turn to God and read as many scriptures you can about how much we are loved. I listen to gospel music and drown out the nagging thoughts. May the Holy Spirit be with you and know you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. Brenda
