• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  4. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  5. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  6. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.

    Hey everyone, I wanted to ask a question. Has anyone else here ever asked God to change their heart so that it would love Him and want to serve Him? I have found myself asking God to give me a heart that desires Him and wants to be saved and know it. Anybody else been there,done that?

    yes Kicker, and He will honor your prayer because thats what He wants too!
    He knows us better than we know ourselves and remember love is not always a warm gooshy {yes i wrote gooshy} feeling! The Bible tells us what love is.....1 Corin. 13:4-8.
    We can not have this love until we fully grasp the love that Christ has for us.....
    John 15:9 tells us that Jesus says......AS THE FATHER HAS LOVED ME, SO HAVE I LOVED YOU,CONTINUE IN MY LOVE.
    Jesus loves us the same as His Father, our Father loves Him......is that mind blowing or what?!
    Take it Kicker by faith whether you feel it or not, believe what He says.....We can not give what we do not have.....He will supply all our needs.......He is patient with our slowness, don't rush to fix it, just trust Him!!!!
    Not that i have gotten there either, but i am learning, day by day, hour by hour and often minute by minute!!
    Love and Peace Kicker,

    Same here, and guess what. It has been happening. But, it is happening on his terms and in his way for sure. May you be blessed on your journey Kicker. Quannie put it in much better terms. My mind is over taxed, but I had to respond. God will give you what you can handle and show many things to you as time progresses. He is all powerful. Hard thing to remember is that we cannot fight his will :)
    Peace

    Hey Kicker,

    I have been asking God for that exact thing. There are times when I feel He isn't listening to me and won't do it, but recently some things have happened that shows me that He has heard me and wants my heart to be for Him. Just remember to trust Him and know that He will sustain you.

    I pray that prayer all the time. I pray that He will help me believe, desire Him, follow Him. Recognizing that we can't even believe God (let alone love Him) without the power of the Holy Spirit, shows just how trashed our hearts are by our nature. Therefore, it is appropriate to admit who we are to God (really to ourselves because He already knows - yet loves us --wow!), and petition Him for mercy, faith, and the desire for faith. Keep praying. I agree with "Q" that it won't always be a feeling, which I think shows that you have faith. Marc

    Yes,
    I pray that prayer all the time, because that is the desire of my heart to be more like Jesus. I want him to change my heart to be more like His!! These are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs describing my desire:

    Change my heart oh God,
    make it ever true.
    Change my heart oh God,
    may I be like you.
    You are the potter,
    I am the clay.
    Mold me and make me,
    this is what I pray.
    Change my heart oh God,
    make it ever true.
    Change my heart oh God,
    may I be like you.

    Amen,
    -Mandy

    Very wise words. God taught me a lesson in rushing His work in me, especially in changing my heart.

    When we rush it we are not putting our full trust in Him. Alot of times we feel "I need this now or...God will not love me" Or something similar.

    As Quannie says He is patient and not only patient but longsuffering. Which is a beautiful part of God.

    As others say, He has no problems changing your heart, filling you with HIS desires. It is not an overnight thing. Alot of us must go through many trials and sufferings for it. When God changes us it is a life long process.

    Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    Psalm 2:12 "......Blessed are all they that put their trust in him."
