Hello everyone and pleased to meet you all. I am literally a new creature in Christ. Jesus rescued my from the pit of hell and I'm so grateful. I don't come from Christian parents and, actually, severely neglected and abused by them and eventually I turned to cocaine to numb myself from the debilitating feeling of being unloved. It held me captive for 12 miserable years. But God showed up and snapped His fingers at me and I was INSTANTLY delivered from drug addiction, just like that. There is no other explanation than that was the power of my Heavenly Father and no one can take that away from me. I got saved and baptized in July of 2012, but here it is almost 5 years later and I have been really struggling with my faith walk. I also have Aspergers and Bible Study can be problematic for me because I take things literally and I take things out of their intended context. For example, I may have overextended my introduction here.?.?

Taking God's Word literally can be a great thing depending upon the Scripture that you are standing upon. Like knowing all that Jesus died to save you from and all your benefits in Christ in being a believer, are great things to take literally!

Well I read through every word of your introduction, and since I have the attention span of a newt I'd say it wasn't too long. :LOL: Welcome to CFS and God bless you. :)

Welcome Rescued1 and thank you for sharing your testimony.To God be all the glory :)

Please be encoraged that even though this Faith walk can be difficult at times, it will be worth it when we come out as pure gold for the Glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Stay blessed and anchored in Christ.
Thank you! I got my fire back, thanks to CF and much prayer. I won't let anything stop me from pursuing God. He loves us as is and His love for us drives us to keep moving forward, no matter the storms. Jesus is my Rock! To God be the glory!

Hello and welcome. You sound a lot like me!

I hope you're well.

I pray you stay well.

Blessings, blessings and more blessings!!!
Thank you. I hope you're well also. It's just been like everytime I take another step to draw closer to God, I get shoved 3 steps back. It's the battle going on in my mind. One day I'm confident in my relationship with Jesus and the next day I'm doubting He's on my side.

2Co 10:3 — 2Co 10:5

For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons. For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),
2 Corinthians 10:3‭-‬5 AMPC
http://bible.com/8/2co.10.3-5.AMPC

Romans 12:2 ampc....Amp ~ do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to it's external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideas and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]

Kick out the bad thoughts of the devil and renew your mind with the Word. Put on your helmet of salvation. And take your victory over this battle in your mind. This is true spiritual warfare.

Blessings my friend
Praying for your peace and strength. For the Joy of the Lord is your strength.
