Title: unbelievable
Post by: haynesb on July 20, 2006, 06:47:41 PM
I am almost 37 years old. I have a wonderful wife of 17 years(married her when she was a senior in high school). I have 3 beautiful children(2 boys and a girl).My job is to be sought after. Up to a few weeks ago, I was so miserable every second of every minute of every day that all i could do was wish for death. I have not been on drugs, I have not been unfaithful to my wife or any of the other well known sins. I was simply miserable day and night. I seeked help from professionals and was fortunate enough to meet a counselor that gave me a guideposts(thought conditioners) booklet. From the first time I read the first scripture in it, I found relief. I have been happier and more content than any days of my life. I continually try to communicate with God through Jesus Christ. I do not know why it took me almost 37 years to get to this point, but I am grateful beyond words. I truly did not want to live like I was living anymore. I could not put my finger on what was wrong, but with God's grace, I have found peace. I have a desire now to study God's words and all the sins that I was committing, I have a better acknowledgment and control of them. I am in no way perfect. I do however strive to be like Jesus. I fear that in time I will forget what he has done for me as so many do. If one of Gods 12 disciples denied him three times, I fear that I will disappoint God as well. May he have mercy on all of us.

Hi haynesb, Welcome to Christians Unite. A great testimony. Yes God is the answer to our problems.

There is a chance that all of us will dissappoint God at one time or another in our lives. That just shows our love for Him, our desire to do all for Him.

Amen and praise Jesus.  And welcome to CU.

Stay strong as a young man and young Christian Satan will now be attacking you and your family more than he ever has before.  He will attempt to destroy your testimony and the witness you are to others.  Read the Bible daily and pray without end for protection and wisdom.

Brother Jerry

Hello Haynesb,



I can't imagine how horrible this short life on earth would be like without JESUS. This world is a dark, gloomy, and evil place, BUT this world is not our home. Our citizenship is in Heaven for eternity. I'm really glad that you brought this subject up. Every Christian needs regular doses of strength and encouragement. The best way to do that is to read our Bibles and pray several times each day. Our MASTER loves us, and we are HIS children. HE loves to hear our prayers, and HE really does want to be a part of everything in our lives. The more we yield to HIS Will - the happier we will be.

I look forward to reading your posts and having fellowship with you.

Love In Christ,

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 NASB  Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord--for we walk by faith, not by sight--we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
