I think I learned just about one of the most important lessons that I could ever learn. First of all, I wasn't even on planning to go to church today. I started feeling really guilty about all of the negative things in my life. How my temper and attitude can just explode like an atom bomb at times, when I start losing my faith and doubting God and His love for me, how I can turn into quite a drama queen sometimes, and overall the sins I have committed in my day to day life. I started thinking how is it even possible for God to love and accept somebody like me? Why on earth would He want me in a place that is supposed to be His house? So forgetting the fact that we are all sinners and the whole entire reason that we go to church in the first place is that we are remorseful for our sins and we want to confess them before the Lord, and the whole entire reason that Jesus died is because He wants a better relationship with us, I started panicking. So, after the service I spoke to my pastor about this and I told him how I felt. He reassured me that all my feelings were normal but I had to remember what the message today was all about and it was basically this; we all have things in our life that we feel remorseful about because we all are sinners. However, when that keeps us from having a relationship with God, that becomes a problem. So he is going to talk to me about how I can better my relationship with Him, and let all those feelings and the pain from my past go.

By the way, the thing that I love about my church is if you can't make it for some reason or another, they don't question it and pester you about it. It's also very contemporary, and since I hate dressing up, it's pretty cool that I get to go in my jeans. :cool

Umm this is sort of late,.. actually it's really late lol but I just remembered while I was listening to the story The Giving Tree that one time when I went to church with my brother that they told us the story of Stone Soup which I also read in Elementary school by the way. :)

I just got back from church about ten minutes ago and today our pastor was talking all about when Jesus was washing the feet of His disciples and how that meant however filthy it may be, Jesus wants to be a part of every aspect of our lives. Then afterwards I spoke to him how I felt as much as I wanted Him to, it felt like Jesus wasn't in my life and how much pain I was suffering because of it. So I asked him to pray with me about it and he did. I feel a whole lot better now too. :) That just proves how powerful prayer really is. :cross But yeah, just to think that I wasn't really too keen moving out of bed this morning. All I'm thinking about right now is how beautiful Heaven is going to be where there will be no more pain and suffering.

Well today I slept in so I didn't really go to church,.. I had the church come to me lol! :lol I found this video on YouTube that I watched, but that doesn't mean that I didn't learn anything from it. It was talking all about how we constantly feel like we have to do certain things to earn God's love. Which I admit that at certain times I even feel. However we don't have to do anything to earn God's love because He already loves us and prayer is a way of communication and having a relationship with Him that He's invited us to do. :cross Here's the video of it in case you're interested.

Well today we had a great and powerful message at church. It was all about the fact that sometimes God wants us to step out of our comfort zone, but He will always be there for us and that He will never abandon us or forsake us. He knows the pain that we have all suffered because Jesus Christ suffered the same pain when He went to the cross. But He is the one who defeated death itself and has overcome the world. And He has promised that if we all just believe in Him and trust in Him, He will come back for us and we will be with Him forever and eternally. :cross

the pastor has links to an old historic family and homestead. if I go to the easter service with baptism. I may present photos of it and of course the people. the family is also linked to ww1,ww2 history as he was one of the early casualties of the war.

no, I am not. I'm not sure who is. I wish I went to church more so at times I don't know things. I was handed and invite and didn't open it until I sat down. it was given one of the Mixons. I recognized the address as a historic pre 1900 homestead. the pastor's wife is a Mixon.

Oops, I totally forgot about that. I will catch up on that later. Anyway, we have a risen Savior don't we? So I would really like you to join the celebration. It's going to be about His crucifixion, death, and resurrection, but it's also going to have fun things in it like Easter eggs (which is actually symbolic believe it or not) and stuff about the Easter Bunny. As long as the true meaning of Easter is stressed then I really don't see any harm in it. It looks like you just replied while I was typing this lol so never mind. Anyway,.. :topic
