I just noticed this new area of the forums, and I have definitely missed this place. I apologize for my absence. I have come back, because I feel like I have new strength in God once again. I have a confession though, I struggle with my faith from time to time. I find it easier to complain about my life then to just trust in God sometimes. I notice a change in my behavior and I still pray but my heart is not as in it. I am a college student, and I feel like college is a very trying time to remain a Christian. You are in a wicked environment full of bad influences, you are strapped for cash, stressed, and tend to put things above your relationship with God. I did join a youth group at my school which helped me stay in a better environment, but what sort of things should I do to stay encouraged like I am now? As a new semester of school is about to start, I want to stay on top of it and motivated. Any advice is appreciated.
