Hi, Im Chris and Im fairly new here. I was wondering if there were any prayer warriors out there that would mind praying for me. Ive got severe existential anxiety and I struggle with doubt on a constant basis. I doubt my salvation and even the existence of God at times. Ive just been given a huge ministry opportunity, but Im not sure if Ill be able to handle the responsibility if I dont get myself under control. I pray everyday about my problem, but it feels like God isnt hearing me and I get frustrated. Im sorry to set such a gloomy atmosphere with this request, but I dont exactly know any people my age that take their faith seriously enough to pray about this.
Im just gonna say this very clearly haha.
As it is written: "Dont make light of Gods discipline"
And I sincerely mean it, as Paul was once struck by a demon THREE TIMES, Im sure it was physically painful, but also it was the root for his agony.
So move on through the hardships, and keeping waiting DAILY infront of Gods doors..
Hes knocking bro, hes knocking.
And this "Distress" is just something God brings upon man. By in accordance, controlling the Devil.
Yeah, that sounds radical but..
These are trials, these are trials.
And in Psalm 120, or 121. [I forget]
It plainly says out that the distress is from the evil one. [Not word for word, but its there]
Make it through the hardships dude,
And to sum all things up for you to soak up what Im saying is literally legit.
Here are the bible verses just for you:
Psalm 120 [And as you may know, the lying lips and the deceitful tongue are from "Man" who are also in accordance, the children of the Devil.]
John 8:42 [Proof there are children of the Devil]
Matthew 11:25-30 [Proof of Gods covenant for you]
Hebrews:12-12 [Proof of your hardships]
God will never forsake you,
and he even promised.
Dont worry dude, youll get through it.
"Love the lord with all your heart, mind, and soul. And Love your neighbors as yourself"
Youre a child of God,
Why else would the Devil buffet you from within and from within out?
We are soldiers.
So put on your armor of God, and continue to FIGHT.
Oh, and always turn to the Lord. Haha
Thats the top priority and root of all his servants.
I love Jesus and I accept him as my savior. I am striving to live my life in a way that pleases God and glorifies him. But...I am also a lesbian. And I am very confused. I want answers but I dont think any person can give me answers. I think that only God can answer my questions and I pray that he does. I knew I was gay from a very young age. I have only this year come to know Jesus. I sincerely believe I was born gay. I believe it is just a part of who I am, like my eye color or my skin tone. But why would God allow me to be this way if he really thinks it is wrong? I love Jesus and I want to walk down the path of righteousness but being a lesbian is something I have tried to change in the past and yet I am still gay. How can it be so wrong when it feels so normal and right to me? How can I be straight when that feels so alien and wrong to me? I dont know. Im just very confused I guess.
Perhaps its the attachment you have within.
Ill just come out honest, perhaps you havent had the attraction, rather guys didnt give you the kind of attention you wanted. Which, other lesbians were able to suffice you with.
Perhaps, Its this long for attention and love you desire from within.
And you know what, Im betting thats exactly what it is.
Lesbian love and love for this world is truely nothing,
Even ask the CEO of c28 and he will agree.
Love, love, love.
Turn to God, and he truly will show you how much he has given.
If you dont believe me,
Compare yourself with your past, and the other "Sinners" you believe you have in your life.
See the amazing difference.
Hate the World, be a friend of God.
And I can assure you, if you hate being a lesbian, loving God will be the easiest thing for you.
As it is written: "You cant serve two masters, either you will hate one and love the other, or you will despise one, and be loyal to the other"
Im seeing its perhaps this attachment, rather this longing desire you have to be recognize.
To know that "Hey, Im alive too guys. Im right here"
Heh. Hope that helped.
God is knocking, he is.
You just got to let go of everything you have,
And just do whatever with Faith.
"Commit to God, and all things will be sucessful"
