I'm Andrea, and I try to live each day through and through for God. Where I am in my life, I just want to do everything for His glory and not expect anything in return. I want to help people, God has given me incredibly selfless gifts that I intend on using for the people who live their lives for themselves and the world. Ijust want people to see God shine through me, and to reach as many possible people that I can. If you'd like to become friends with me on facebook, my name is Andrea Statler :
Phil 2:14-16 "Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life-in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.

JaplaceShe doing real good! Thank you sooo much! We went to a church dinner last night at an old Western Steakhouse Town place, and I wheeled her around in her wheel chair. She is doing good, sept she has some pain in the foot. Since the surgery, she has to stay off of it for 12 days.
My prayer today is about relationships.. My deep connection with God can often times turn people off, because of the unusual christian dimeanor.. Im not saying im perfect or preachy.. But Im the temporary friend.. the one you go to f youre in a fight with your best friend. then when the fight is resolved im left in the cold. I try and make time for other people when they need me but it isnt returned please pray that I can find friends who are just as in tune with God as I am so that I am not misunderstood
Ok so I have been with my boyfriend for about 6 months and I honestly have never been happier with anyone. He is selfless, sweet, hardworking and our communication is better than any other relationship I have been in. He doesn't judge me and has seen me at my best, worst and has taken Carr of me when I have been sick. He is a Christian and goes to Church twice a week, but one thing that I know that I need is a spiritual Christian head of the home, and I'm just not sure if he has the capability of being that for me and children that we would have if we were to be married.
Then there's Mitchell, a guy I have grown up with my entire life through school and church, his passion for God is unmatched. He spends time in the word everyday and I can't help but be attracted to him when with his humbleness, and sociability is so refreshing, and we have the ability to really talk about the Word. It's not that Zach and I don't do that, because sometimes we do devotions together.. But I don't know, am I wrong to compare them? Different people show their love for God in different ways, right? I'm just so concerned with myself for being attracted to Mitchell while dating my boyfriend but what makes me attracted to Mitchell in the first place was his sweet spirit and passion for God.. Help?
Thankyou for all your perspectives, they really have helped. And I guess that my big thing is that Zach and I are probably what you would say equally yoked, In terms of how much time daily we spend with Him, Which for me is about 2 times a week outside of church (I'm getting better) however, because I feel Mitchell is more consistent in his Walk, it makes me think of real structure in a relationship, that he really would take the reigns and show through his actions, a man dedicated to Christ. I just don't know what I should do to approach Zach about Being the spiritual leader of the house.. Any suggestions..?
Alot of teens and young adults simply do not make wise decisions when choosing to date. They think they are doing something to make themself happy but what they often mostly do is hurt themselves and grow distant from God and their partner becomes their main focus in life. And when the heart ache comes some blame God or ask God why is this happening to me, when in reality it had nothing to do with God only things we brought on ourselves. I think we as christians let worldly views on dating influence ud to much and we dont take time to make wise biblical decisions but let our fleshly desires take over. If your in a relationship and having sex or any other sexual activities you both need to break up mo question about it, if your putting more time with your partner than God break up, if anything in your relationship is causing you to sin constantly, break up! Its better for you to be single the rest of your life tham to be in relationships that tempt you. I know we all make mistakes and this life is hard and we want someone to love and be with we all feel that way. But this life is not about finding a marriage partner having kids and settling in a house this life has a different purpose for ud which God makes clear and finding a spouse should not be our main concern. You wanna know when your ready to date? When the day comes and you realize your ok with being single your whole life and God is all you need chances are we are wise and strong enough to make the right decisions to be in a relationship to lead into marriage or courting.
So for those of you who don't know, God has blessed me with an amazing Christian girlfriend who I am beginning to love very very much. She is literally perfect in every way to me besides one major thing: she's pro-choice. In my eyes, pro-choice is pro-murder and the equivalent of being pro-nazi. Her position is very firm so I don't think I can persuade her from this disgusting mindset. Does anyone have any advice on how to overcome this obstacle or do you think this is a deciding factor in leaving her? If you are pro-choice, please don't contribute because you and I are on two completely different levels. Any pro-lifers, please give me advice!
I'm 20 years old and I've been praying for my future husband since I was about 16. I'll admit that I'm not really consistent in praying for that specifically, since I go through seasons where I'll pray for him LOTS, and then other seasons where I kind of forget and just pray for other things. But lately my mom has really been bugging me about starting to pray for my future husband every day. I think it's kind of cool to tell him that I've been praying for him when I DO meet him, especially since I've never had a boyfriend before and I don't really have any crushes. I go to a huge church but I know a lot of people, but none of the guys really call my attention. Anyway, for the single folks, do any of you pray for you future wives/husbands? If not, then you should! *tsk tsk* Lol.
I am 18 and have been praying for my future husband since I was 12. I have also written numerous letters and vows to him out of anger and stress (I'm so lonely why haven't I met you yet?!) as well as long letters of love and respect and patience. It helped me SO much when I was single for 4 1/2 years until I recently met my current boyfriend I am still praying for my future spouse whether it is with my current boyfriend or not, But now my prayers are geared towards wanting to know if the person I'm with is the person God ha prepared for me.
Ok guys, I have a major issue. So I met this girl Jess who is new to town and to my school and she's my lab partner for anatomy so I've gOtten to know her pretty well. She's come to youth group at my church a couple times and is the fits person inmy town I can actually talk to about my relationship with God. However the other day we were hanging out but she was acting weird like something wa wrong. I asked her and she said that a burden of hers has caused her to have a heavy heart. I askedher if she could be more specific and she just started bawling wrapped her arms around my neck and cried on my shoulder. She managed to utter the words 'masterbation addiction' and I froze. I had no idea what to say do or how to react!! She tried to explain: (summed up version) she said she had ne'er been kissed and never had a boyfriend but masterbation sparked her interest because she wanted to make herself feel 'good' she was very discouraged at first, however because nothing was happening and she insisted she was 'broken' but she key 'practicing' and was able to be satisfied. And now she feels like she can't stop. She says it happens atleast once a day, but she also said that she knew what the bible said about the impurities of our mind and lustful sin and what it can do to us, which made her bawl even harder because she felt disappointment from God. As she's telling me this I can't help but try to come up with something to say that sounds comforting. But all I could manage to say one thing which was , "Jess,I'm going to pray for you" but seriously HOW DO I HANDLE THIS? Hhhhhheeelllppp!
Great! Thanks you guys for your input. I just felt so bad and was caught so off guard I had no idea how to console her.. But maybe now I can just continue to pray for her, and have her look at that website. I confided in my youth pastor about it ( but didn't mention names of course) and he also advised for me to suggest to her that the time that she feels the urge to do that she go and tea her bible or talk with God and spend time with Him. Maybe that could be a suggestion I give her too..?
I've been single for four and a half years and have gone back and fourth with loving/hating being single. Can someone please give me some advice regarding singleness and how I can always b ok with it until Vod places the person in my life.. Any thoughts??
I know and agree with everythin you guys say, truly.. and normally I just pray for my spouse wherever he is whatever hes doing I pray for him, and write letters to him, because I know he is out there, but at the same time its soo hard being patient... And Ive delighted in being single... For the first three and a half years.. But now im just in a place to where, I would like to have a relationship. Not to get married necessarily but to learn and to grow from you know? To help find myself more..
the Bible is pretty clear that woman should be homemakers:
Titus 2:4-5 NKJV
4 that they admonish the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.
1 Timothy 5:14 NKJV
14 Therefore I desire that the younger widows marry, bear children, manage the house, give no opportunity to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
see, they are commanded to be "homemakers," and they are told to manage the house.
For those of you that havent seen my previous forum, regarding this topic, let me catch you up. I came up with the idea to have the faithful members of c28 and (most importantly) GOD, have a mission trip to do together, as one body!! :)This idea is in the works, and we would like c28 to be involved as well, a fellow c28 member, Cody, and I are working together to make this idea possible for a month in the Summer of 2011, currently, we have discussed the possibilities of remaining nation-wide, for the simple fact that we want to use the money that were using for the mission trip (that we, ourselves have to fundraise) in the absolute smartest way possible. So, please, if you would like to be apart of this (hopefully) soon to be new c28 tradition, please reply to this forum, with the state you currently reside in, as well as work projects that you are interested in. This is a GROUP thing, I just want to try my best to work with everyones preferences, so please, COMMENT! Thanks everyone!! :)
So my ex bf wont stop asking me to be friends with benefits and i keep telling him no and y i dont want to have sex with him and y i think its wrong but is there anything i can say to him to make him realize how bad it is for him to be doing it? and ive told him i dont want to go to the wrong place if i decided to do it i want to go to heaven and live my life for god not myself. any advise? cuz this is breaking my heart to see him go down this road.
If I were him this is what would be going on in my head: "she's the first girl to ever say no to me, I have to have her!! And that whole innocent Christian girl thing is a huge turn on"
My advice: don't talk to him, because apparently you guys have some sort of history together or else he wouldnt be coming back you know? He has some growing up to do, it's not our responsibility to prevent people from making bad decisions, it's to give them a fresh perspective from a person who doesn't live for the world. Actions really do speak louder than words so if keep telling him to leave you alone and responding to his pleas, you aren't getting anywhere. Just pray for him, thats all. Just pray :) Hope I helped!
