I'm a college student living in Michigan. I'm going for a degree in Secondary Education in Chemistry and Mathematics. I attend an awesome church called Community 318 on Western Michigan University's campus. I also attend Cru at a local Community college and Real Life at WMU. I'm a youth group sponsor and co-lead a high school girls Bible study. I have been a Christian Camp counselor for the past few summers and absolutely love it.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

DonnaThank you so much for your prayer. There is no change so far but just because we dont see change doesnt mean God is not working. Please continue to pray for Laura and her situation. God will bless you for your selflessness. ~~Donna
Please pray for me, Ive had a rough couple days. I have Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, and its really been acting up lately. Also pray for my church, were starting a church on a college campus, were hoping to reach the thousands of unchurched students that attend there. Pray for strength and protection for me and the rest of the launch team, as several of us have been dealing with serious health issues. We launch on February 5th, so please be in prayer that we can overcome all obstacles and do what God has called us to do.
Original Prayer Request (posted 1 Year Ago): Please pray for my high-school age cousin, she had open heart surgery earlier this week; she came through it fine, but shes in a lot of pain, she just got her chest tube out. Pray for a speedy recovery and a lessening of the pain.
The doctors have finally found the right dosage of Baclofen and Nuerotin to stop the spasms. Hoping it stays that way, but for now its working. Thanks for your prayers and support!
Original Prayer Request (posted 1 Year Ago): I was n the ER yesterday, with convulsions affecting my whole body, they gave me a shot of Ativan and the spasms went away, but please pray that the doctors find the right meds and med levels.
hey people, I need your advices!:) next year I'll move to a college campus and I need a quote to write on my wall to brighten up my room a little bit!
who knows a good quote? it may be christian, it also can be secular.:)
I have two examples already: enjoy the little things of life, one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things (secular example)
by counting our money we feel mostly poor, but when we count our blessings we feel mostly rich! (christian example)
“A faith that hasn’t been tested can’t be trusted.” -Adrian Rogers
“God does not so much need people to do extraordinary things as He needs people who do ordinary things extraordinarily well.”-William Barclay
“We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.”-Helen Keller
“The knowledge that we are never alone calms the troubled sea of our lives and speaks peace to our souls.”-A.W. Tozer
Those are a couple of my favorites :)

Hello there, My name is Jonathan, I was wondering if anyone can explain the story and meaning behind Not Of This World.
I do understand its a verse, but still cant seem to grasp its full meaning.
Emergency Prayer Request: I accidentally scratched my boyfriend Michael's eye last night. He just saw a doctor who said the injury was more severe than what we anticipated-- they said he may go blind in the eye due to the location and severity of the scratch. Please, please pray. Your prayers do make a difference.
had a panic attack in front of another student at school yesterday. I’m so frustrated with everything! I’ve been on my knees so many times praying and begging God to take this from me, but I get nothing, sometimes it’s like He’s not even listening, not even there. I don’t know why I even bother, nothing short of a miracle can be done for this, and I’m so tired of trying to be strong. No one truly knows what I’m dealing with, the daily emotion and physical pain. I won’t let them know, but they see it. I’m tired of going home and getting yelled at, it’s not my fault, it’s not my fault, I keep saying that, but I can’t shake the guilt. I’m the reason my family is so stressed and tense, this stupid illness. I’m a burden to them, my dad come so close to telling me that, without actually saying it. I need to get away from these voices, I’m not good enough, I’ll never make it, I’m a failure, this is pointless. Why did God allow this to happen to me, I’m not the greatest person in the world, but I, haven’t done anything horribly wrong. And why did it have to be this disease with unrelenting pain, robbing me of sleep and making me wish and pray God would just take me, because heaven has to be better than this hell. I hide everything, nobody sees how bad it really is until all my emotions bubble over and I’m at my breaking point. I put on a good face, but honestly, hope is thin and reality overwhelms at times. What are the chances that they decide to put money and time into research on a disease that affects so few people, honestly what hope is there for a cure. I hate this! When I think of everything this has taken from me, music, art, I was a promising artist, pursued by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and now I can’t hold a paintbrush, and I don’t have the strength to do ceramics. I used to be a runner, now I can’t even walk. My future is one big question mark hinging on a big if, if I get healed, even if I go into remission, nobody stays in remission. I can’t take this pain, but I refuse their treatment of heavy pain meds, my decision being a tricky one, they don’t treat the symptoms, they only make you to out of it to care what’s going on. And that the one thing this disease hasn’t taken from me. My minds still sharp while it’s slowly taking my life away from me. My minds like this big ping-pong match, one moment I want to fight it, and the next I’m praying for heaven to come soon. I don’t know; I wish I could have my life back before this nightmare started.
Thanks! I'm doing a lot better than a month ago, but I still have a lot of ups and downs. I don't think it will ever get to the point where I attempt to take my life again, at least I hope and pray I never get to that point again. I still fight against the hopelessness, and pain, and frustration. I still wonder why God allowed this to happen. We've had our share of arguments, but God is still God, He's still in control throughout all of this, and He's with me every step. One of my favorite songs right now is Reliant K's For the Moments I Feel Faint:
"Never underestimate my Jesus
You're telling me there's no hope
I'm telling you you're wrong
Never underestimate my Jesus
When the world around you crumbles
He will be strong, He will be strong" :)
hey you all, I thought it would be nice if we all prayed for Jessi. she's on the forum too, as you know and she's in the hospital now, causing by her nerve illness. shall we all pray for healing for her and peace in her heart?:)
Thanks Gabriella and everyone else for your prayers, I'm being released in a little bit, but they still don't know what's going on. Just that I'm having seizure-like episodes, that probably aren't seizures. Pray that they figure this out.
I know I've asked for prayer for this before, but please pray that the nerve pain caused but my Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy will cease. My doctor's finally got a good dosage of meds to stop the spasms that were contorting my entire body, but in doing so, they had to decrease my nerve pain meds, because they're are both nervous system depressants. My nerve pain wasn't exactly under control before, but now it's gotten worse. It varies between feeling like and million fire ants are crawling on my legs and biting me to feeling like someone has stabbed me in leg with a burning knife. I have collapsed to the floor, because the pain is too much. I'm also dealing with my depression coming back, and tormenting me. I know God is bigger than this, and I know that He didn't cause this to happen to me, but sometimes it's hard and I get mad at Him, because I've prayer a thousand times, and He hasn't healed me, I know there must be a reason He's saying not yet, but right now while I'm dealing with this, I just get frustrated.
Thanks for your support and prayers. I wish I could say I feel better today, but I tripped and have a nice cut on my foot that looks slightly infected now, I'm hoping it's not, because I'm allergic to several antibiotics, but it has also made my flare-up worse.
