    I have been back in church

    for 2 and a half years now. I repented for walking away, I re-dedicated my life to Christ. I got baptized. I prayed much, and got prayer cloths for my husband. I wanted him to get back in church too and desire that relationship with Jesus. He eventually got back in church and...

    I've been a Christian all my life.

    I'm 33. I grew up in a Christian home. I grew up and lived in a bubble of Christianity. When people say that they used to be in the 'world' etc. I never really knew what that meant or what that experience of transition was like. I was the pastor's daughter that every mother in...

    I try and put my hope in Him,

    but it just isn't that easy sometimes. Sometimes I take his name in vain, and I feel like crap, but I can't stop myself because I feel so miserable. Anytime I feel that way, I go to Him, but it doesn't always seem to help. Sigh. :/

    I'm struggling with homosexuality

    and I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm getting mixed or confusing signals from God. I feel like acting on my same sex attractions is wrong but why won't he take them away from me? Just last night I was praying for guidance, and soon after saw a video of a woman who said...

    My Biggest Struggle

    I believe homosexuality is a sin. Yet, I'm a homosexual, and I feel like that's never going to change. I always try to find a way to justify it. It's hard. I feel like I'm disappointing God. I'm still not acting on my feelings, bc I know it's wrong. I know God is here with me...

    Okk....

    I have been having a hard time in deciding what I believe in. I know I cannot keep changing religions. I have been a Christian all of my life until a couple of years ago. Nothing was going right. I considered myself agnostic. Religion to me, was just one big confusion. My mom...

    Tired I'm tired of living in modern society

    where I see most people live for money and materials. I'm sick of going to work just to earn something I don't need and coming home aimlessly. I feel like I'm shackled to the human way of living. I wish to live my life in peace and learning about god at the same time. Where...

    Disappointment And Anger=no Love

    This is a serious struggle. Jesus gave us only two commandments in the New Testament: to love others and love myself. I'm failing miserably at both. I have made some stupid, stupid choices in life. I have intentionally blocked out the voice of God Himself and married someone...
