    I often find myself only praying

    or turning to the Lord in the darkest of hours, and I am trying hard to be a better christian even when the days are bright.

    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

    I just want others to see your love through me

    I'M So Glad I'M Getting Discipline From Daddy (Aka Jesus) Praise him

    I pray every day for him to bring me out of darkness and sin, so I can truly be with him how I once was and have his love. I can't make it without him. I know he loves me for rebuking me and putting on my spirit to stop and change my ways and come back to him. I do believe he can...

    Embodiments of sin are seen to be entertaining

    instead of appalling, and embodiments of good are seen as boring instead of inspirational..

    I'm still struggling in areas of sin.

    The biggest is downloading music right now. God has spoke to me in the way I think he tells me (it's a bad feeling before I do anything) and I've deleted links I wanted to download and I am avoiding going on the pc where I listen to music.

    If anybody sees this,

    please answer. It's a very serious question concerning my current "relationship" with the supposed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am not a Christian. I feel that as much as I should give my life to him, to serve him for all the days of my life, two things concern me. One is...

    I want to be a better Christian,

    so I can love others without even questioning it, or thinking about it. I've always judged people before I actually met them, and in certain I was wrong; I learned from my mistakes. My mistakes are what make me a better person. I'm learning everyday, but as I do so I realize God...

    For the past few months,

    I've been losing sight of what it means to be a Christian. I feel like a hypocrite when I sit in church knowing that I haven't been living for God. I've been selfish and doing only what makes me happy. That ends today. A new year is about to begin and I'm determined to become a...

    interest in practicing my faith. To read the bible is forcing myself. I have no interest in it its not interesting to me. Though I do kind of like to read it. It depends on the scripture. To pray? I force myself every night for what reason? Guilt. Either guilt or I don't want...

    What do you do about persistent deliberate sin.
