    It's really difficult commuting my relationship

    as a Christian in my family. None of my family really has a set religion and they're not entirely supportive of me being Christian. I've committed my life to Christ and follow in Jesus. I know he has the right path for me, and although this path can be difficult I try very hard...

    I Almost Lost

    There are many kinds of sin available in our world today. But, we need to remember that this is not our home. We need to run the race with our eyes firmly planted on Jesus Christ our Savior, Our Families and fellow Christians running beside us along the way. And my God will...

    Believe in God, and everything the bible says,

    including the Holy Ghost power, but still do things I don't want to do, don't do the things I want to do! Should be so simple, but yet seems so hard!

    I've called myself a Christian

    for forty years. The last thirty, at least, and maybe all forty have been a heavy spiritual war... until today. It feels like I'm born again, for the very first time. A major battle has been won today; a new hill has been taken; a new depth of peace has been attained! Possibly...

    I had to learn the hard way what the old folks

    meant by "it ain't no harm to keep your mind stayed on Jesus" because you can't hate your neighbor when your mind is on Him. Lesson learned

    I tend to be very judgmental, and I get so angry whenever someone disrespects me, animals, or someone I care about. Is it okay for me to speak out to them nicely with my opinion or should I just not say anything at all? I am a very passionate person and cannot stand injustice, I...

    What Is the Goal of This Life?

    I'm reading a book by John Ortberg called, "It all goes back in the box." It's reminding me that I do a lot of 'vain striving' in my life. What is it that will make me happy, seems to be my mantra, instead of things like, 'how can I help someone today?' I've fallen off the...

    I am not sure what will happen tomorrow, or past that.  All I know is that I will keep having faith in the Lord, because I know he has a purpose for me in this life.  I know God loves us all, and he will bless us along our way.

    I don't want to be a crossdresser anymore

    because Deuteronomy 22:5 says I shouldn't be and I want to listen to that. God didn't make me to be a crossdresser. I know this and I want to do what he wants because he is the alpha and the omega the beginning and the end. Praise Jesus Christ my savior
