    Love Others

    I have noticed in some different stories that responses that are the opposite are taken very hard esp. when it is against christians.  As christians, we must appreciate someone else's opinion even if it is anti-thetical to ours.  I would expect all kinds of responses. I...

    What To Do?

    I want to preach, I want to become a friar, I want to serve and love God, but I think I am in a state of self-loathing. I don't seem to believe in myself, and I feel like everything I am doing is bad, is wrong. In my heart I love God, and how I wish more than anything to flee the...

    I Really Need God Right Now....

    I haven't needed god this much in awhile. I hope he's listening. Because I really feel powerless and alone right now. I really need him to be there for my family because I know I'm useless to them. I hope some way, something will get better. I just I wish I had more control and...

    God Simply Put

    I had some comments from another board and it made me think about how simple God is. People have misconceptions of how God operates like He is just waiting to beat people up, and killing people for no good reason. Here's my take on it. Let me know how I do. God gave...

    Story of Heaven and Hell

    I heard this story a long time ago about heaven and hell.  A man went to hell with the devil.  There were all of these banquet tables filled with culinary delights, tasty treats, but the people milling around were emaciated and bony looking.  They had their elbows...

    Holy Spirit Is Like a Hummingbird

     Is there Time for God?  God showed me something about Himself. He gave me a vision in, let's say,my mind's eye. He waits for us, just out of view. A perfect gentleman. Gentle, kinds, soft, re-assuring, wanting us to want Him in our lives.  There are somethings...

    I Struggle With Commitment

    I've wanted to establish a relationship with God for a very long time. But I always fail to truly commit to him fully. If I want to be what God wants me to be, how do I do it? what does he want me to do? where do I begin? How do I stay focused? I need him so bad. My life is...

    How I Wish I Was Close

    The Prophets and Saints, the best friends of God. I pray and I read and write about God, and I admit I wait for a revelation. God is the greatest, and, as I am making a new religion, I wonder if he agrees with it. I hope so becasue I don't want to upset or anger Him. Sometimes I...

    Because I Believe That...

    God is outside, but mainly inside of me too.That is how- psychologically, perhaps- "he" can be so familiar and grandiose at the same time.A glimpse of the being we can aspire to be like.Our most perfect selves.(u.u)
