how about you try talking TO God?...spend time with him
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!

have you had a tramatic experience lately? That can sometimes effect someones relationship with God. Try praying, or just reading the bible. That might help. It might also be easier to get back into the flow by posting in this forum might help loosen you up



Hope I helped

i had a issue withthis once - i refused to attend youth group - i hated church and couldnt abide when poepl prayed with or near me. for me it was guilty conscious i knew that at the time i didnt have a real relationship with god and i avoided everything religious because i thought pretending(trying) to be studying it or praying or talking to God would be like mocking him. im still often like that i never think im good enough for god and i do fall short but since then ive come to accept that i dont ahave to be perfect i have to try.



maybe like sugested above pray about it - god listens no matter what and loves you no matter what. or justtake some time away from it to evaluate whats going on in your life, what you believe and how it makes you feel. remeber faith is work, and we can have faith and still question what ever religion we chose to be.



sorry if that was confusing - i tried.

I've been down that road before and it sucks. In fact, my senior year of high school, in youth group we had this teacher who made it sound like any time you comitted a sin, you'd go to hell, and that every sin you comitted was a mortal sin. You have no idea how much I disagreed with his teachings. In fact, I disagreed with him so much, that I just flat out stopped going, well I take that back. Since the classes were held in the church basement, I went, so my parents thought I did, and then I went out to the graves and sat down next to my relatives and friends and talked to them for the two hours I was supposed to be in class.



And you know what, I learned so much about not only myself, but my religion in those two hours on those days than I had learned my entire life. Granted, any hardcore toe-the-line by the book cathlioc will say I'm wrong in some of the things I say, but I won't because I believe that the book is open to interpertation, and it's what I get out of it that matters. Granted, I'll attend mass when I can, and on the major holy days, but I don't believe that if I miss mass, I'll go to hell, (my teacher said that). Some people do believe that but I don't so reasons I could ramble on and on about, but this is not about me, so no one press the issue.



For me, religion was more about finding out who I am, and what "I BELIEVE" not what I'm told to believe. That may be hard to swallow, but take the time, find yourself, and go from there. After you find yourself, try finding what you believe in, that will tell you about your religion. Just remember, God will be there the whole time, but if you don't want to think of him, think of someone close to you who passed away and talk to them, they are sure to help you too. In due time, you'll find where you want to be...it worked for me...I hope it will for you too.
