Hi guys. I know I am new - but I thought I would let you know you are not alone. I have been where you are and it is an awful awful place to be. Once I removed myself from the situation and the people who were influencing me (which wasn't an easy thing to do), got back into church regularly, studied and prayed, my life started getting easier. Don't get me wrong, I still have bad days and things aren't perfect in my life, but they are much much better now that I am "home". I pray for you and that God shows you that you don't need those people (blackwing said something about bad influences) or things that are keeping you from Him. Step back and take a look inside yourself......then take it to Him. Turn it all over to Him and let Him do some spring cleaning!

Good luck and God bless.

Blackwing and Kristen,

One of the greatest things we can do for fellow brothers and sisters is pray for them!!!!

Spiritual warfare is very real and one thing you can be comforted by(maybe?)is if Satan is working against you right now that's because he's knows he doesn't have you anymore and he's gonna work extra hard to get you back. Put on the full armor of God!!

Having said that, I will pray for you.

Please pray for me because I am struggling with a 'will' problem of my own. Knowing I can do all things through God I am finding it extremely hard to give up smoking. I know all the health facts, but I think Satan has me hooked because ever since I "started" again, I have been losing weight, which, in my eyes, is a big plus! So, smoking looks very attractive to me, right now, having always been "undertall" for my weight! I'm between a rock and a hard place. The last time I quit smoking(for almost 2 years)I gained almost 35 lbs. Trust me, not a good thing. Anyway, I want to beat both these things and haven't got a clue as to how to start. Pray for me.

Your Father's Love Letter

Hi everyone...and expecially Blackwing and Kristen,

I kinda stumbled upon this board tonight, and after reading the posts here signed up just so I could reply. While I'll be praying for you all, I wanted to post something that provides me with much comfort whenever I read it, and reassures me of my place in God's family. Hope you like this as much as I do!

God Bless...Steve

I totally agree. I am so comforted knowing that people have me in their prayers. It is like, well now I know I'll be OK! And I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Christsoldier, You will definitely stay in my prayers! Good luck to you my friend! And God Bless You!

Love Sending you Love because it IS the Greatest!!!

Hi, Best thing to do is, print out that Fathers love letter and hang it where you can see it everyday and read it!! Great stuff, I printed it out and gave it to my ( ) unsaved son for Christmas, I think he was really touched, he was impressed by the fact that when you read all those verses together they do seem like a letter meant just for you. I told them that they were. He was kinda quiet after that. He even told me I didn't have to return anything I'd gotten him for christmas, he liked all of it the world is coming to an end!l LOL
Anyway blackwing I was feeling the same a short while ago and thats when God lead me to a couple of christian forums. He has shown me to surround myself with good and to know that I am under a shield with him and as bad as this world is getting Only I deceid if I want it to hurt me or not, and I choose NOT! So I read the good book everyday, participate a couple hours on these type of forums and read about others and pray for them. ( I actually feel better praying for someone else than myself). I have hung up bible verses that are very meaningful to me all around the house so I am in constant touch, I listen to praise music ( and hang up the lyrics from them too) ,and just open myself up to serving him and knowing he will take care of all the rest.
When I really want to "get away from all earthly things" I daydream about how my mansion in heaven is gonna look. I know he is preparing it just for me so what color?what special pleasures are there that he has done for me alone? It brings wonderful peace and washes all the cares of this world away, try it!
Lord I lift up Blackwing to you, I ask that you give him wonderful renewal like you have for me , I know how I feel (my cup truly runneth over!!!) and ask you do the same for him. Draw him close and give him purpose like he's never had before. In Jesus name, Amen.

Pray for repentence. God will give it to you.
But always remember that God knows your heart and
loves you. Jesus died for you and His blood is the lasting sacrifice for your forgiveness.

Keep one thing in mind. You don't feel the way you do overnight. It is a process like the frog in the kettle. It is the same with getting back to where you want to be. It will take time. Just by stating that you want to get back is an indication that God is dealing with you and that you are on your way back.

A book that is very helpful to me is The Prayer of Jabez by Bruce Wilkinson. It is a 90 page short book that can revitalize you. I know a lot of people disagree with it but read it and take it to heart. It will change your prayer life. It did mine.
Take care.

Blackwing,
You're in my prayers as well. If you pray and let go of the negative it gets easier....just take one day at a time and make it as pleasing towards God as possible and you'll do fine. I'm new to all this but am learning a little everyday. Love and God Bless you. Take Care. Messenger

Funny solo66 man but when i talked to a trusted friend(who is a pastor also) he said me the same thing and more.

I am glad that God directed me to this site and I will do everything in my capability to be a better person for God and others with the help of our Lord.

Everybody has been a real blessing

Thanks.
