I have felt a divide between God and I for a while now. I'm still not sure about what fills that gap, but its been too long and I am determined to get through it. I need to get through it. I need to have God as my hope and my friend. With Him at bay, life has been very hard. I know He will meet me with open arms. I just hope I am ready.
In January, 2010, I had been pushed beyond my mental and emotional limits and made the decision to take my own life. Everything was mapped out: Go to work, go home, take the last of my blood pressure meds, fade to oblivion.
I got to work and went up to the employee break room where I just sat talking to no one. After a few minutes a fellow Christian named James came in. I said nothing, just a look of recognition. But he had…

I got graduated from college, got married, got a teaching job, bought a house and am lost. I know I have a good life, but things went down hill. I have been depressed for two years. My husband and I don't see eye to eye. I was a very strong christian, and lately I find my self believing that maybe I was wrong all these years. I grew up in a catholic church and HATED it. I knew there was a god but that was about it. My friends in highschool took me to youth group events, I went to…Continue

I lost contact with my Mother for…Continue

Everywhere around is only darkness. Its dark in here....
Inside this tunnel, I can't see all of the things
that God is doing outside for my future.
It is rather unnerving and slightly disturbing
to not know what He holds for me.
I struggle against the reality
that, He alone knows His plan for me.
Please give me the faith, God,
because I lack it greatly.
To trust in you alone
and stop trying to do it on my…Continue

I vow to praise through the tears
To push past the fears
If that is what it takes
If nothing else
I will cling to the thread that is my love for you Oh Lord

So, in my first post, I didn't say what it is I have been wanting. I want to get married to the most amazing girl in the world, my girlfriend. The first step, of course, is to get engaged. Before that can happen, I need to find a better job; one that would make it possible for us to live married and support ourselves. I am still a college student, but she has graduated. She works full-time and I work part-time at a pizza place....
It was never my ideal job, or even one I wanted, but…Continue

I've never written anything even near a blog before. I've always been very private and I internalize everything, but the keep the faith program has inspired me to join and write out some of my thoughts and feelings. I'm not sure who you are, but if you are taking time to read this, I feel I should tell you a bit about myself. I am 20, I am a junior in college, life has been tough, but in many ways I'm blessed.
I have struggled with a lot discouragement and some resentment of God in…Continue

The bible states, tht our signs and wonders will follow the preaching, reading and understanding of the word. However, when we mix a bunch of wordly stuff with Gods word. Then honestly brothers and sisters, all were doing is white washing and/or completely watering down the word. Along with our signs and wonders.
Letting go of it all and letting God handle it his way, is the key to all of us really being shown favor by God.

We as christians are ordained by God to always be victorious in our everyday lives. Yet those of us who get defeated, are so because we focus and confess more on the all the loss and negative things. Rather than thru raw devotion, confess and believe and hold God in remembrance to his promises and blessings for our lives. Its our jobs as christians to be careful what kind of seeds were planting. Both in our own lives and in the lives of others. Most importantly our children!

Sometimes I am guilty of going off by myself to try and figure things out. Especially when I was younger I would alienate myself from other people in hopes that just being by myself could produce the answers that I was seeking. Often what happened was that I stayed confused about the answer and grew lonely in the process. God does not need Lone Rangers! In fact, things will always go better when you team up with others. When Jesus sent out the disciples to do the work of the ministry he sent…Continue
For the LORD watches over the path of the godly, but the path of the wicked leads to destruction. (Psalm 1:6 NLT)
This journey in life that we are taking does not have to be difficult. There is a predetermined design that has been set up by our Creator. There is also another way that is filled with more of us than God. The Bible even goes so far to say that there is a "way that seems right to man but the end is destruction."…Continue

Please pray for me for a very dicey, isolating, work issue between myself and a coworker. I can't stop crying over this;i can't say what it is, although I truly can say the coworker started this whole issue. I need God's peace and also His ability to help me pray for her and for her to let herself talk to me other than Good morning and Good night. I would like to go back to where we had normal, everyday fun conversations. Please, please pray. I have had to take one of my anti anxiety pills…Continue

Feeling totally hammered by people today.
Why is it that bosses have to not see you, not appreciate you and talk down to you?
I'm an intelligent people. But I'm not interested in living my life by climbing the ladder by stepping on people and using them. But one of my bosses does this, all in the name of Christianity. She's going to get to the top no matter what she has to do.
How do I keep working in this toxic environment. If the economy was better I'd seriously…Continue
