    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...

    When I first joined this group,

    I didn't have the first clue as to what God wanted me to do. I still don't know His plan, only He does, just as He knows the number of hairs on my head. The difference now is that I know that we only need to ask Him daily and be prepared to listen because He will tell you. It...

    No disrespect but I disagree,

    not knowing what's going to happen tomorrow is what kept me exited enough to wake up today, even if it will be painful.

    I hope He will tell me his plan.

    I am wondering why he let bad things happen. I just heard a really sad news today. We bought a piece of land, but an employer from the company took the money and ran away. Now we don't have that piece of land and almost all of my savings. I feel sorry for my mom. She is...

    Sometimes when the world feels like it's coming

    down around you, you just have to smile. There isn't anything you can do to stop the momentum you just have to hold on and know you will be okay.

    Not Knowing Is A Part Of Gods Plan

    imagine living life know exactly what will happen all the time, knowing how the story will end before it even starts. Would you want to read a book with a spoiled ending? I know it wouldnt be much fun or interesting for me. I dont know if I will fall in love or get my dream job...
