I come form a horrible past and the Lord has delivered me from the pit of sin. My salvation or should I be saying conversion was; well I don’t know how to explain it. All I can say is you had to be there and you’ll probably think I’m crazy. ( I got off the subject I do that a lot so I apologize) getting back to my question, what do you do when there’s this one issue that makes you want to snap? every time I think about the situation I feel myself getting ugly I try to maintain my self by quickly turning to prayer because I feel horrible about the thoughts I have. But I cant help being angered. I try not to focus myself on petty things my time is better spent in prayer. But no matter what this issue just creeps up on me. If you want more detail I’ll let you know. can anyone help? ” title=”Neutral” />May 19, 2006 at 7:44 pm #6223
[color=darkblue:1tlmdrys]I usually pray. And depending on what it is, I search for some guidance in the Bible. Having family around and someone to talk to also helps.
If you could (without getting to graphic) share what it is about.[/color:1tlmdrys]May 19, 2006 at 8:01 pm #6225

[color=darkblue:3pbjxzoj]So do I! Atleast on my side. Jerry Springer is kind of vague. Some more detail would help. [/color:3pbjxzoj]May 19, 2006 at 8:06 pm #6229

Theres so much more my mom is ill she’s been sick and suffering for as long as I can remember major illnesses kidney failure, heart troubel, and to top it all off she just had major surg. 2 weeks ago, she is now staying with that same sister as my sisters and I are in ohio and my mom is in cali. She needed looking after so my aunt volunteerd and has since left my mom alone with a major open wound and no help. Where is the compassion or mercy?May 19, 2006 at 8:26 pm #6231
It was sudden the surg. my lil sister came for vacation and then my mom went to the hospital. I’m sorry is this to much for you? How do I control myself when this matter comes up? My mom has chosen to forgive her and since my conversion I’ve tried. But then of course I receive persecution form my sisters they are non believers.May 19, 2006 at 9:06 pm #6234

[color=darkblue:uk1ft1an]That’s a tough one. Your dad and aunt have choosen to live in sin and it has destroyed the family unit and has also hurt you and your mom. Any negative vibes that ressurect, just immediately replace them with something that makes you happy. For me, it’s my wife and kids.
And always keep praying.[/color:uk1ft1an]May 21, 2006 at 4:13 am #6250

Hold steadfast to God and He will help you. Just as Christ said us two thousand years ago: [i:v09fumq3]¬´Knock and the door shall be open, ask and it will be given to you¬ª[/i:v09fumq3]
Hold on to Him and He won’t leave you. Even if the whole world crumbles around you, your faith will enable you to live through it.
My prayers are with you.May 21, 2006 at 2:28 pm #6254
Sounds incredibly rough. If family can’t help your burdens perhaps Christian counselling can. Of course, you sound like your on the right track through Christian discipline but, having another Christian trained let alone gifted by God in comforting others is a great way to find healing through the Church. Get in touch with those gifted in this in your local body.
