Christians...

Post by junglemonkey » Sat Oct 08, 2005 7:10 pm

This will sound weird, and it's hard to explain, and non-religious people will find it even weirder...



But recently there's been people who have entered into my life, who have made me feel so much less alone and who have really touched my life in a positive way. For some reason I instantly related this to God, feeling as though it was more than just coincidence. Almost like He was trying to show me I wasn't alone or something, I don't know. It sounds weird.



This sounds crazy and superstitious and I just wanted to know if you'd ever felt this?



Thanks,

Its not weird at all hun.

When you live for God...you'll know when he is blessing you!

I'm so happy for ya!
Im a part of the fellowship of the unashamed.I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast.I have stepped over the line.The decision has been made. Im a disciple of His.I wont look back,let up,slow down,back away,or be still...



My face is set,my gait is fast,my goal is heaven,my road is narrow,my way is rough,my companions are few,my Guide is reliable,my mission is clear. I cannot be bought, compromised,detoured,lured away,turned back,deluded,or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,hesitate in the presence of the adversary,negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity,or meander in the maze of mediocrity.



I wont give up,shut up,let up,untill i have stayed up,stored up,prayed up,paid up,preached up for the cause of Christ.I am a disciple of Jesus.I must go till He comes,give till i drop,preach till all know,and work till He stops me; and when He comes for His own,He will have no problem recognizing me-my banner will be clear!

Lesley,



I do know just what you mean. :) I had something kind of similar happen tonight when I opened up and went to a church youth group thing. I just felt so welcomed and loved, like God was really showing me that He cares and that there ARE people who are going to love me for me and help me in my walk with Him.



It's a great feeling and I'm glad you've found people who encourage you in your faith. :)

If a Christian didn't feel this way at least once I'd question their faith.
Your soul.

Your body.

Your mind.


Keep it Purified.

hey junglemonkey! that is not weird at all! God communicates in many ways including the bible, worhsip, prayer etc etc. however, in my personal experience one of the most powerful ways i have encountered God is by those around me. God works throgh people all the time and im glad to hear he has been reaching you. its such a blessing to find people who make u feel Gods love and encourage the spiritual part of your life. dont let those people get away. im so happy for you. take care and god bless and your in my prayers!!
