    Isaiah 40:31 says, "but those

    who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." I cannot brag on my love for the Lord, because I fail him every day. But I can brag on his love for me, because it never fails...

    What do you do about persistent deliberate sin.

    I thought I was over this but I'm so weak in moments and just don't care about my faith. I feel slightly disappointed in myself. I feel like I have to make it up to God now. Feel kind of guilty. I don't know. The bible says no forgiveness for sin for left for this if you keep...

    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...

    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 don't pray as often

    as I should, and when I do I'm often asking for something. I want to learn to pray to God even when I don't need anything from him, so I can develop my relationship with him & grow spiritually.

    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...

    I Almost Lost

    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.
