I Am A Christian

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 437 People

    I am learning (painfully).

    That being a follower of Christ is ALL self sacrifice. Abraham was given a promise (an innumerable seed). He tried to get to that promise on his own (he failed). Then when he surrendered god provided Isaac. "Go sacrifice him buddy". Ok!!!! Many...

    My Connection To Christ

    It began as a small child saying my prayers before bed, i longed to hear his voice of love and compassion.  His un speakable peace of angels singing rocked me to sleep. I began to know the lord of lords in a miraculous way, our never ending friendship has been a awesome journey...

    I hear God speak to me tonight.

    Don't complain to me and call it prayer. Don't worry and assume I don't know what you need or raise your hand like a little child trying to remind his parents he need or want something. Don't I know what you need and want? I am giving you what is best, trust me.

    What I Am

    I am imperfect, but my God loves me for eternity. I am not REQUIRED to do anything but accept the fact that Jesus Christ is the one and only son of God who came down to earth in the flesh to save us all. Yes, my religion is often seen as hypocritical, but just like any other...

    I am a Christian but I tend to fall,

    a lot. I'm happy as a Christian but feel somewhat unsatisfied I guess. Like I know Christ is all I need but it's hard to comprehend it and put it into my own life. I am a follower of Christ and love God and believe in him but can't seem to shake this feeling of sorrow inside me...

    Cry Out To Jesus

    Where ever you are, no matter what you've done or said, or the situation you're in, Christ loves you and wants you to come to him. Give your broken heart, and burdens that you cannot bare to the one who over came the world!  The one who  loves you just the way you are!Yes with...

    You know how people are born with gifts?

    Well, it's been 18 years, & I still can't seem to find anything special about me that can show god's love & help spread the word. It's the ways to find your gift?

    He Doesn't Forgive Then Just Forget

    My recent experience has been a wonderful one. I became a christian in 2009 and in the last few months, a lot has changed. I have moved city, quit my job, started university, moved house 4 times (in as many months) and I've had health issues. During this time I've strayed from...

    Most times when we have a talent.

    God seems to want us to sacrifice it in favor of obedience to him. Only then does the gift thrive. Under him first then out to others second is his order. :).

    What Is Love

    Love is slow to anger, it holds no record of wrongs. It forgives instantly, it goes the extra mile. Love can bloom flowers just from the source, it's tender, kind, and merciful. It accepts with no questions pondered. Love is open arms with a true spirit reaching out to this lost...

    What Has Happened To This World?

    When some people hear the word love, they, without thinking say "do i know you" which is the nature of this world today. Why am i discussing this? this world is unmerciful, unforgiving, selfish and plain terrible. It gives a strong impression on people that you must know a person...

    It's like waiting for a vanilla latte.

    It only takes a couple minutes and tastes way better than powdered instant coffee that you make in 5sec. But that's how it is for me waiting on God. I'd rather do it myself and make a crappy cup of coffee than wait an extra couple minutes for something well worth the wait...

    This is going to be controversial

    but I am going to say it anyway: I don't believe in the devil. I believe in God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. But I do not believe in a personified form that is purely evil. Part of my reasoning is that it is sacrilegious to believe in another god, and the way...

    I heard a line the other day

    and it is so true. "Do not try to change the world, start with your own family and spread from there". Is your family in order? People will watch what you do as a "Christian" make sure you give them something to watch or they will never hear from your mouth!

    I heard it in my heart. If we were to focus on being the person God wants us to be and forget about the things of life. How good it would be a holy cooperation with the secret divine process. He knows the needs we have in life. What we often do not realize and comprehend is that...
