God is an amazing, merciful, and loving Father. What he has done for me in my life and those around me is something that cannot be written with a few words or can be jotted down in a song, but one way to start thanking him is by me just giving my life, serving him with all that I have and surrendering everything to Him. I am so grateful and so privileged to serve a God that loves no matter what, despite my mistakes, failures and flaws, because He is love.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you he will never leave you nor forsake you."
Japlace:/ no. I dont. Sometimes I wish I did, so I could keep up with family, friend, and all of my friends Ive found on this site likr you, but I just dont think I should get one. Yes, I have seen benefits to it, such as evangelism and witnessing, but for me the cons are greater than the pros. Sorry for making what should have a short answer long!! lol. Love you too, my brother!

RachelIm a bit late in saying so, but I just wanted to thank you so much for committing to pray for my grandmother, I truly appreciate it. God bless!
Doesn't look like this person has any prayer requests on the Prayer Board.
God is amazing, the tumor which was in her lung has decreased in size by 15%, and according to the doctors, she is almost healed by medical standards. I know that God is going to do more abundantly than what we ask or what we think, and the healing is there we just have to cry out. Thank you God for being the absolute in our lives!
Original Prayer Request (posted 3 Years Ago): As of January of this year, my sister, her name is Amy, of 23 years old was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, which is a cancer that mainly affects toddlers and rarely if ever affects anyone over 5 years old I think. The X-rays revealed a massive tumor or mass in her right lung that has gradually been getting smaller with chemotherapy but it is still there and she has to breath through a tube. As if this wasnt enough, her colon wall is swollen and she cannot eat, they can only give her nutrients. Please cry out for her because this is a woman who truly loves God with everything she has, were not giving up on her and I tell her all the time that she is not alone in this fight, she has friends, family and churches behind her but the more people praying the better.
In the words of a wise man, a man I admire and a man I look up to, my Pastor, Daniel Segui: "There is no challenge in your life too great that the Holy Spirit has not empowered you to overcome". When I first heard this, I had to write it down. As I thought about it though, I found myself thinking hard about everything that has happened throughout my life. From small battles and small wars to battles that would try to overwhelm me more than once and wars that have tried to destroy not only me but those I hold close. And me, being the person that I am, would try and tackle these problems by myself, trying to be strong for everybody else, not letting anybody else help, and in the process I was destroying myself.
And as I think about these events in my life, they flash before my eyes and tears just fall down as I think about how amazing my God is. How many times has something happened that got me down, had me nearly beat, to the point where doubt would try to creep in? And yet God, in all His unfailing love and mercy, reached down and brought me out, loved me like nothing ever happened. Can you find a more perfect gentleman? I don't think so. But you know, they say that the past is the past, that what happened to you is over, it's what you do today that matters, the way I see it though, those hurdles along the way, they were stepping stones with lots of crags in them. They're meant to deter you and stop you from ever succeeding, but if it wasn't for those detours, I wouldn't quite be the person I am today.
I'm going to keep moving forward, keep looking ahead, be still and know that He is God, because if one remains attached and anchored to the blows life has dealt them, they'll stay stuck in the same place, going neither forward nor backward. Moving forward...might just be my new motto
i've heard quite a few names...Yehwah or I think it was something along those lines, Our Father, Dear God, Dear Dad (= , Just curious if anyone had unique ways. It doesn't really matter as long as you're talking to God but I've always wondered this...
I'm sure that everyone, at one point or another, has had someone guess their age. What age do people think you are??
I've gotten, 12, 13, 26, 30, 47 (kindergarten kids have no concept of numbers...AT ALL!!) and then adults usually think I'm anywhere from 16-20...one even said 25! I love watching peoples mouths drop when I tell them I'm only 15 :)
So I thought it would be fun to ask what everyone's ancestry/nationalities are! I'm Irish, French-Canadian, Norwegian, English, and there are rumors of Scottish and Swiss (Or Swedish, I can never remember)...there's probably more but that's all we know :) Oh, and American, cause I was born in the U.S. lol I would ALSO like to add that by Christ I have been made a citizen of Heaven, so I guess that makes me "Christian", too ;P Haha, or, a "Heavenian"? ;P Anyway, what are you? :D
Okay, so this is said in the christian church I'd say more than anything. but no one has explained what that means!! Can someone please shed some light onto why I've heard this a million times and no one has ever taken the time, or maybe they just don't know, but what does it mean that God loves me??
Simply that, He loves you. He gave His life for you (Jn 3:16). He wants the best for you, like a father wants the best for his child. He is there when you need him. When you call out to Him, He answers (Though not always when you expect it, there is a time and place for everything).
When you ask for strength, He gives it to you. When you cry out for healing, He gives it to you.
If parents, who want to give their all for their children, would give their lives for them, how much more our Father who is in Heaven?
They happen all the time. It's part of our human experience. At some point we all run into something that devastates us.
Countless people live in broken families with broken hearts. Everywhere people are used, abused, ridiculed, rejected, ignored, and abandoned. This generation is bombarded with pornography, sex, depression, cutting, suicide and helplessness. These injuries leave permanent scars—scars that you may never see.
Countless young people from coast to coast need to hear that God wants to comfort, heal, and put them back together. Although the enemy continues to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus binds up the brokenhearted, proclaims freedom to the captives, and releases prisoners from the darkness.
God restore us!!!
Just curious. what songs get you "pumped up" spiritually? When I preach I tend to listen to any of these
shut me out- kutless
die religion die- brian welch
shut us down- sho baraka
breathe for you-decyfer down.
Am I the only one who does this or are their others?
So I was sitting there, this morning, eating my breakfast, which was a waffle with peanut butter and syrup, and I was thinking to myself how, so many times before, people had told me that it was weird to put peanut butter and syrup on waffles and or pancakes!
Do you guys eat anything that is really good, but most people think its gross or weird simply because they have never tried it?
