Re:I live for God



People have said that to me in church before.


Re:I live for God



I lose my words when praying aloud. I hate it because other people are praying the same thing. The first time I prayed aloud, the others were like, "God liked your prayer the best".


Re:I live for God



I don't like to pray aloud, but I'll do it in my head, I'm embarrassed to pray aloud because I don't want people to think that I'm talking to myself.


Re:I live for God



You should see me when someone tries to get me to pray aloud. I actually practice it in my head until it's my turn.


Re:I live for God



For some reason I get shy w3en prayi>g to Him. But I always pray to Him.


Re:I live for God



My apologies for the double posting. My mouse is behaving strangely.


I'm not entirely sure if He would take the things away from you. He has given us free will. He isn't forcing us to love Him. It delights Him if we do choose to love Him.

Put some time aside each day (around ten minutes) to have some quiet time of prayer between you and God. He wants us to talk with Him and He wants to talk to us, but we must make the time to listen to what He has to say.


Re:I live for God



What happens if you put something above God, and not make time for Him by doing a certiain thing, will got take that thing away from the person that is putting it above Him? My mom puts her dogs above God, and she doesn't get them taken away from her.


Re:I live for God



Sometimes people get so caught up in the things of this life that they don't think about, or make time for, God.

Re:I live for God



I ride them at least once a month. I have a season pass to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Why did you want to know how often I ride them?


Re:I live for God



How often do you ride them?


Re:I live for God



How often do you ride them?


Re:I live for God



I don't know, he just acts like he is God himself. He said that it was because I put roller coaster above God.


Re:I live for God



Okay, what Bible is he reading?


Re:I live for God



I don't know. One time, I went to the doctor, and the doctor said that I 3ad a heart murmur and couldn ride roller coasters, and my uncle said that it happened because God was jealous of me riding roller coasters.


Re:I live for God



Does he really think you're going to Hell for riding roller coasters?


Re:I live for God



My uncle told me that God is jealous because I ride rkller coasters.


Re:I live for God



You've no reason to dread Him like that.


Re:I live for God



My uncle made me fear him in a dreaded sense.


Re:I live for God



We're supposed to fear Him, but not in a dreaded sense. There should be hope and love with this fear.


Re:I live for God



Yes, he is saved. He has even been baptized in the Holy Spirit. He just likes to scare me, he is making me afraid of God.


Re:I live for God



Good. You've been saved from eternal damnation.

And your uncle, is he saved?


Re:I live for God



He, yeah I've done all that. I been baptized too.


Re:I live for God



Have you accepted Jesus into your heart and the gift of salvation? If so, your uncle is wrong. Confess your sins and He will forgive you.


Re:I live for God



My uncle likes to scarey in to being the perfect angel by saying that God will punish me.


Re:I live for God



I don't know much about the bible so I can't tell you whether or not that is true or false but there are some things that some religions don't allow because they say it's not allowed in the bible. I don't know these rules so I won't get into them.


Re:I live for God



My uncle told me that Satan wants me to ride rides, but God doesn't.


Re:I live for God



Guess he has his kin here on earth which is a terrifying thought.


Re:I live for God



And to think, I always thought Satan was evil.


Re:I live for God



Ya she is the root of all evil if you ask me. She's the psycho one who manipulates and uses people but whatever. May God bless her.


Re:I live for God



Yeah, that is evil.


Re:I live for God



"Unfortunately, my ex step mother told my dad that I was born blind because he was a cheater and unfaithful and that i was his punishment"

That's just plain wrong.


Re:I live for God



Yeah, it is a sin. People have said that just to scare me before but I know God loves us all no matter what we do.


Re:I live for God



wow, what beautiful postings. i couldn't help but admire everyone's beautiful writings and spirits.
I wanted to comment on an earlier posting that said that people think we blind people are being punished for something we did against god.
Unfortunately, my ex step mother told my dad that I was born blind because he was a cheater and unfaithful and that i was his punishment.
At first that hurt me but then i realized it may just be people's ignorance speaking. Jesus loves us all and to say that should be a sin in itself.

Re:I live for God



Wow. That is interesting.


Re:I live for God



According to Jesus, only the Father knows when it'll happen. The angels in Heaven don't know, the Holy Spirit has no idea and even Jesus' guess is as good as ours.


Re:I live for God



That sounds super awesome! I can't wait for that to haspen! When will the Rapture happen?


Re:I live for God



Doesn't that sound awesome?


Re:I live for God



The rapture
The rapture is when the Lord Jesus Christ brings the church, those who believe in Him, to Heaven
He will call us with a trumpet the dead in Christ will go first
then those who are alive will be taden to Heaven next.
We will be changed into a glorified body and be with God forever.
Here is a verse

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.
-1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
God bless you all


Re:I live for God



I don't really know that much about the Rapture, what is it?


Re:I live for God



I hope it happens before the Rapture.


Re:I live for God



I agree. I know she will someday believe.


Re:I live for God



She'll see. One day the Rapture will happen and she'll believe when she's left behind.


Re:I live for God



Mn mom thinks that I'm weird because I'm not afraid to do things, she doesn't even believe in God.


Re:I live for God



Amen to that.


Re:I live for God



I'm a very free person. I'm not afraid to do anything because I know that He will protect me in everything I do.


Re:I live for God



Once there was a teenager named Jason. He was an able-bodied high-school student until one fateful day.

He was involved in a bad car accident.

Doctors said that he'd either be a vegetable, or dead.

He's not a vegetable, but has become severely disabled; having little use of his arms and legs. He also lost the ability to speak, so he uses a voice synthesizer. Some time later on, a Young Life leader spoke to him about what the doctors said and how he turned out.

It took him about ten minutes to write his response.

"They don't know how big my God is."


Re:I live for God



Thankfully no one has told me this (I read about it). And I say "thankfully" for their sake. I first read it and was angered.


Re:I live for God



I've heard that one before. But I know god has a purpus for me because I had third degree burns on 20% of my body and then I was running a 107.5 degree . feavor.r I should have perminet brain dammage so I know god has a purpus for me.

Re:I live for God



YES, I'VE HEARD THAT ONE BEFORE, BUT I CANT HELP TO THINK WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, AND I GET A FEELING OF REASURENCE INSIDE ME THAT MAKES ME SMILE. I'VE ALSO SEEN PEOPLE WHO SEE MY SON AND THE WAY HE CARRIES HIMSELF SO FREE AND HAPPY AND PEOPLE GET TOUCHED, I FEEL SO BLESS TO KNOW THAT GOD USED ME TO RAISE A BLIND CHILD BECAUSE I KNOW THAT GOD IS WITH HIM


Re:I live for God



Some people think that we're blind because we committed some terrible sin against God and He's punishing us with blindness. Anyone else hear that one before?


Re:I live for God



Whenever I think about God oh Jesup my stomach hurts because I get so nervous. My uncle scares me because he loves to preach to me.


Re:I live for God



I remember those stories. I like them. I'd probably stutter like Moses upon Jesus asking me what I want Him to do, because I'd be nervous. I know He wouldn't hurt me, but I'd probably still be nervous.

Remember, Jesus loves us all. The Cross is proof.


I hate when I start sounding like a preacher - mostly because I think I'm bad at it.


Re:I live for God



I have ROP too! God bless you.


Re:I live for God



This reminded me of a scripture from the bible when Jesus Crist saw the blind man he said that the man was blind so that other people could see the glory of God through him, and then healed him and made him see. My son just turned nine on June 28th, and has ROP he just recently lost his whole vision due to a surgery gone bad but he is coping with it. 2 Timothy 1:7 says "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, and of love and of a sound mind. God Bless you all, Amen


Re:I live for God



I have dreams like that all the time, and I always wake up in a good mood.


Re:I live for God



I had a dream like that once a few years ago. It was awesome. I woke up in a really good mood.


Re:I live for God



I always dream that I can fly.


Re:I live for God



That would be fun.


Re:I live for God



It will be lots of fun in Heaven. I bet that we will be able to fly.


Re:I live for God



Exactly. We'll understand all this when we get to Heaven. That'll be cool.


Re:I live for God



I know that God gave me low vission for a reason.


Re:I live for God



Absolutely! Even though I've suffered a lot over these years because I'm visually impaired, I'm not at all angry with God for giving me low vision.

Sometimes I swear I feel a hand on my shoulder. I often have to remind myself (or have God do so) that He's faithful and will never leave, no matter where I go, no matter what I do, no matter what happens.


Re:I live for God



God saved my life many times. I live for God too.
