    Back in march I was taken to a youth group type

    meeting at someone's house through Xenos Christian fellowship. I have been a believer for a long time but right now I'm really struggling in my walk with god. I don't want to be at Xenos anymore because I feel like they don't accept me and frankly they only want you hanging out...

    This is nothing speaking against god, or those who believe him. Whatever floats your boat there; it doesn’t bother me. I only write this story here, because I can’t find a place where it exactly belongs and I don’t feel like creating a new experience where this story will...

    Finding God's Plan And Purpose For Me

    First of all I think and believe we need to understand about God’s timing is that it is perfect, just as all of God’s ways are perfect (Psalm 18:30; Galatians 4:4). I heard a pastor say "God’s timing is never early and it’s never been late". In fact, from before our birth...
