    morning blessings

    Feeling discouraged today with being sick all the time and trying to be in a difficult marriage. I'm tired of being in this body, I'm tired of my sin and the sin all around, how relationships/families are falling apart! Parents aging, my mother has Alzheimer's and they are not saved, so...

    Christian Suicide

    I've dealt with thoughts of suicide, but, in the years that I have I can say that the thoughts of suicide we're not always the same. Not until I took medication did I ever have any thoughts of suicide and then when I came off of them I had "suicidal ideation" that was so bad because it was...

    Researchers Say 3D Scans Will Reveal Noah's Ark Is Buried In Turkish Mountains

    Thank you, I'll be sure to keep that a secret! ;) I got a little anxious because I did not want to cause any problems. So thankful for the patience and kindness and love on here from all. I really do feel so loved and I hope that I am never making anyone feel otherwise as I know I am...

    Oh no. Seems like it's my day to get in trouble. I apologize. My husband reads this site for news, not me and I didn't remember it being one of the sites not to post! So sorry once again.

    IS FAITH THE "GIFT" OF GOD? (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10)

    Let's take a look at Romans 6: 23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." What is grace? Grace is God's unmerited favor, blessing. And, Ephesians 2: 8 says that grace saves us. "For by grace you have been saved.." In Ephesians 4: 7...

    IS FAITH THE "GIFT" OF GOD? (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10)

    Yes, thank you Mary, I am aware that they are hard core calvinists that is why I mentioned in my opening post that I do not support this type of teaching at all. I too have known this for years and am familiar with it as I did spend many many years, many many years ago in God's Word and...

    IS FAITH THE "GIFT" OF GOD? (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10)

    Whew.. I'm so happy you we're able to comprehend my confusing post!:) Allow me to further explain, which I should have tried harder to do yesterday. I have always taken this verse in Ephesians 2: 8-10 to mean the same as what you have said above, that "the Gift" spoken here is...

    IS FAITH THE "GIFT" OF GOD? (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10)

    I apologize Goodboy for causing you or anyone a hard time to understand my post! Sometimes I have a very hard time writing out what I want to say. I agree wholeheartedly that the process of salvation requires for us to make a choice and that this passage and many others say that God gives...

    Writing prayer

    Several years ago, I started writing Scripture down in a notebook, I was going through a really difficult time and was spending a great deal of time in His Word. While I have a really difficult time with keeping my attention/focus on what I'm reading, my mind wanders and I tend to read too...

    IS FAITH THE "GIFT" OF GOD? (EPHESIANS 2: 8-10)

    I know this passage of Scripture has been a passage that has caused great controversy. I believe in free will and that we exercise faith, but, I have struggled to understand whether "faith" was a gift or if "faith" we simply exercised on our own. I do not believe that we are regenerated...

    Christmas Decorations and Celebrations

    I think that having these questions are not a bad thing and even though they may cause us some anxiety, I believe some of this anxiety is not necessarily bad and that God is always at work in us, to help us to grow in our relationship with Him. His word tells us that we are to examine...
