    The gods have the same plans

    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...

    Dont We All Wish We Did.

    God knows very the plan He has for our lives. Whats important is that we have faith and keep it strong in believing . Rely on His control and not our own.His grace is right there acting every moment, one step forward a few steps back. Realize this ....these movements within us...

    sometimes I do, but then other times I'm just

    like, nah that probably wouldn't be good. I already have problems giving up control, could you imagine how it would be if I knew his plans for me. I would probably think there is no use for him, and that I could do it on my own.

    I feel like any plan God has

    for me it's likely riddled with unrest and broken dreams. I have asked him for more than that but I'm still left in despair.

    It's so hard to wait

    for God to bring me that special person. I so desperately want to me content with myself being alone. I just don't know how to get there.

    When the subject of Evolution is raised,

    for me there is no debate, God said He created everything and that is good enough for me. Extra evidence is readily available outside the Bible to verify creation, both God and Jesus are more reliable than anything else. Not all “Christians” discount evolution for various...

    I believe with all my heart

    that God has a special plan for everyone but sometimes I wish I knew what mine was.. I always wonder what my plan is that God has lined up. Has anyone else?

    Relying on our gut...

    .a nightstand full of self-help books and yet I still don't know if I'm the f'd up one or he is?! Or both! Do I rely on my gut? What if my gut is wrong? What if his behavior will pass and I'm just not being supportive? How long do you give it before you just can't take it anymore...

    A word to the lonely at this time of the year.

    The downside of this coming festive season is for those individuals that endure loneliness, I reflect back to those times when having left home to live in a room by yourself and not have someone to share the moment with. Loneliness is a fact of life and the single Christian is...

    Honestly I've been thinking about giving up

    going to church. This said from a girl who basically grew up in a church. It has mainly to do with the fact that the pastor died a week ago and he was family to me. I'm scared to leave but i want too. If only parents understood this.

    if god loved me he would not have allowed me to be born. Because of both who I am and my life experiences I will be punished in hell for eternity. I find it tough to believe this will outweigh the little good I manage to do in the world (another reason I can see for my creation...
