Back Again

  1. Well I haven't been on here in quite some time and there aren't too many things that have caused that. Just been busy with life. I wanted to get on here and update my friends who sent prayers my way and of course, my mom's way. I wanted to let all of you know that the specialist she saw told her that she sees nothing that alarms her and nothing that looks like cancer. I am so thankful for that and I am so thankful to all of you who prayed for her. It means the world to me!

    I am asking that my friends here pray for me to continue learning and to learn not to question God so much. I am really struggling with that lately. Thinking, "why does He allow this to happen? Why did he have to take that person away so young, but leave all of these awful people here to live their lives?" That last one I have really been thinking lately. It just doesn't seem fair to me. I just have to keep learning. I don't want to stray away from God, especially since I just declared myself a follower. I just need help and as many prayers as I can get.

    Anyways.. my main reason for getting on here was to update everyone on my mom's health. I am so thankful and I continue to pray to my incredible God and I never forget to thank Him for everything he has done.. Thank you all for reading and God Bless..

  2. Thank you for sharing---it's good to update. And...

    Mykuhl, Abdicate, Juk and 2 others say Amen and like this.
  3. Just look at it this way. Those who leave us early or too young have passed the test and received their promotion. Those awful people need more time to pass the test, and that is fair. We need to be the light to show them the Way. Just like Saul saw the light on the road to Damascus. Renamed Paul, just think of how many lives have been saved by allowing that awful Saul to remain. God works in mysterious ways, amen? It is all for our good. I can't wait for my promotion, but first there are others I am supposed to affect thru Christ.
    You are blessed.

  4. An excellent explanation.
  5. Praise God! It was so great to hear that wonderful news! God surely is faithful.

    Something to think about is that those things that people always say that is so unfair...its not God's fault. When we step out from under His covering to do things on our own....or we are sinning and it opens the door to the devil....or the devil attacks and the person does not know or believe that they have the authority to not allow the attack or pray against it...those things are not God's fault. If it is stealing, killing or is of the devil.

    The sad part is that the devil hides in the shadows and well meaning people who want to comfort someone, offer up an answer that says that God must have His reasons....or take the verse that everything happens for a reason...pointing to God, and all the while the devil is getting away with what he just caused and God gets unjustly accused with something that He never did. And the lie gets spread instead of the truth of the fact that it was not God's fault. So when do people stand up for God saying that this is not in His Character, so i do not believer what you are saying. Just things to think about :)
  6. Thanks everybody for the replies and encouraging words. I appreciate it. I just lost someone that I know to cancer (not a family member, someone I went to school with) and he was a wonderful person who was always nothing but kind to everyone he came in contact with. It's just really sad to see someone so good and so young lose his life. And like I said before, it makes me question a lot.
  7. I am truly sorry for your loss! We pray that God will give you comfort and peace!
    Was this young man saved?
  8. Sometimes the righteous are taken and the wicked spared cos God wants them with Him. Its not cause they didnt have enough faith necessarily.
    If they are saved, it is no loss at all. They are with the Lord. We will just miss them but they already have their reward.
  9. Thank you for the update; prayers be with you and your family.
    Its nice to have you back.
    Please check the staff announcements as there has been some changes since you were last here.
