It's not God's love we need to be concerned about, but our obedience to Him. What if you stopped talking to your mother? What kind of relationship would you have then?
School is evil man ... :-p
I just wanted to say how great the love of God is...
When you are not in "control" of your life, that is when God is in control. When you are weak than are you strong. A truly "humble" man is the one who has all his "cares" cast upon the Lord, for he is the one who cares for us.
1Pe 5:6.. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1Pe 5:7.. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
The Father definitely loves us, I just don't understand why. Humans are so weak and full of sin, how can He possibly love us?!
In my case, I haven't just been blessed by God, I'm actually spoiled by Him!
The good news is when you became a child of God, you now belong to him, and you no longer belong to yourself. If you go astray he will bring you back to where you should be. No child ever asks their parents to correct, chastise, or even punish them when they do wrong, they do it whether you want it or not.Hi everyone,
I just wanted to say how great the love of God is. I remember a period in my life when I walked away from him. I was stressed and I blamed him for all my stress. So I told him bye. I even stopped praying all together. Looking back at that part of my life now, even when I said bye to him, he still saved me from total destruction. He was still holding on to me even as I tried to push him away. How great is that love huh? Such unconditional love!
Right now i'm in a position where I have to depend totally on him because The situations im in I really have no control over...so I have to have faith. Some days I fail...some days I win but either way...God loves us!
ohhhhh and if anyone has any advice on how to maintain faith,I could use some advice because some days I don't do so well. The things that are happening in my life will surely take miracles to fix.
Your post really grabbed my attention. I believe that we always stay in Gods favor. I think of it as we are Gods children, and not everything in our lives is going to be sunshine, rainbows, and puppies. When I was a child, and life wasn't treating me fairly, everything was the fault of my mothers in my head. I would say things I shouldn't have, and I would also turn my back to her. Love is stronger than anything life can throw at you. As Gods children, even when we're upset with him, He still knows our hearts and our needs. You are right God loves us, even when we turn away.
let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.
As for maintaining you faith, Go to God with sincerity, and ask him for his help. Continue to speak with God, Study his word (your weapon against those things you have no control of), Praise him, and be thankful.
God Bless you I am so Happy you found your way back to God http://restoringfaithandgrace.net/breastplate-of-righteousness/
He will see you through.
Yes God and I have had our moments or days when I yell at him and not talk to him for a day....or two.... But he knows I dont mean it. I have learnt that my relationship which him is just like my parents and I. One minute im upset with them...the next minute I happy with them. But it never takes away from that fact that I love them and will do anything for them....its the same thing with God.
Sometimes I used to doubt his love. But recently I have learnt that, my parent's love me,only want the best for me and only want to see me happy so just imagine how much God loves me and would move mountains to take care of me. After viewing things that way, it has really put it into perspective for me. He really really loves us!
God bless you!
Thank youI love your honesty, I've definitely had my moments of not talking to god or just going through a blue period and wanting to be left alone.
