Hey, God is big enough for your questions and your doubts. God would want you to explore them. He wants to know you as you are, not as people feel you should be. YOu be you! Nothing else. My relationships with God has grown leaps and bounds and it’s always after I’ve been willing to ask the question, What If I’m Wrong? I ask God to show me the answer. He always does.
It’s not a real relationship with God anyway unless you are honest. At the very least you have to be allowed to be honest about where you are and what you feel right now. I commend you in doing this. : )
When I first read your profile a long time ago I accepted as friend
in part because you said you were Christian and loved Jesus.
I’ve seen that part of you dramatically change. Sad as is to me I have
to bear the words of Christ-you are either hot or cold, you are for me
or against me, but because thou are lukewarm I spew you from my mouth.
I can understand your doubt, yet you cannot ride the fence and play
Switzerland. You cannot play referee between believers and nonbelievers. There is a reason they don’t get along and it will always
and forever be spiritual issues. To NOT believe is a spiritual issue not
a practical one. Perhaps you can understand why people believe and
are simply sympathetic to their beliefs but that it’s not for you.
I can understand that. . .
. . .Morgan, you cannot use the name of my God (I say mine because you no longer accept Him) as a casual swearword.
I understand that you are fully comfortable and free now and I am
certainly no one to tell you what you cannot say. In my life, I have walked thru some shadowy valleys that make your nightmares optional.
This is not to dismiss your own trials in life but I do come from a darker
age than many. It is the very fact I’ve experienced Gods hand leading me through those times. I am what I am because of the Holy Spirit within me, not perfect by far but better than before.
When you use His name as a swearword, you demean everything He has
done for me, in the total existance of my life. . .
It is not for me to tell you anything - feel free to curse my God often as you like, but please allow me get out of your way.
I saw your post about your week and I just wanted to say keep swimming, you’re strong. you have us too!! And I hope to whatever force there is out there (If you believe in God than that’s him) that everything will get better. You are strong. :)
talk to me if you need someone to listen
I am a grandmother and I lost my Dad when I was a young mother, now I have lost my grandson a year ago he would have been 2 this summer
I do understand
things will get better :) Hugs
Well, my uncle was plumb eaten up with cancer and said he wished to die a month ago. They basically kept him alive and drugged unconscious with morphine for the past few weeks till my cousin Birgit finally said ‘ENOUGH!’ and, in accordance with what he’d asked of her whilst still lucid, had him taken off the stuff that was keeping him alive (though not the opiates). 3 days later and pearly gates (I hope). Coco has turned from a little monster into.. a fat little monster. I gotta get outta here. Too much tasty bacon from my Mom.
Got another (used) truck to haul my camper, filed for disability (fingers crossed), my best friend Nick got a puppy (been jealous of me for 15 yrs), and now have to go to a funeral (uncle died juuuust as I was ready to take off). Hey! ..I can send you a pic or 2 of his puppy!
Sorry if I was arguing on your post. I didn’t mean to, I’m really just trying to thing about gratitude and thanksgiving and I got distracted trying to explain stuff and ended up making random assertions and arguments. And happy thanksgiving.
Funnily enough after reading your shout I went to close a different tab and realized it was an article about someone named Morgan. That’s highly… convenient, I guess, that my brain doesn’t have to be exposed to more than one set of names in a day.
Did school get better? Or has it always been good? You seemed concerned about the idea of going to school.
Thanks for becoming a president when I hoped you might. Sorry I then abandoned my own presidential status. At least it is a fine name for you to have, lots of times, it makes everyone think about your intrinsic awesomeness.
