Gods will
    #2413734 - 03/10/04 07:07 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys, i hope that this fits in this forum, anyway im a newborn here and seem to be struggling with Gods will for my life.First off my whole belief system has been shattered so to speak and is being built back up one day at a time now.Which is cool and am digging it, but it seems as though im being pulled in sevral directions and they all feel like there from God, and i tend to get frustrated and am jus tempted to blow my brains out or something like that.The whole key to this is surrender and i do not by any means wanna be spit back out into babylon which i feel my has happened. i just cant stand the thought of going back to my old lifestyle. This is the hardest thing ive evr done in my life but is well worth it wouldnt have it any other way.I feel like, God has been calling me on walk abouts and fer the most part have been obediant but the thing is so many rod blocks jump up and i ask myself is this of God.Like fer instance felt He was telling me to lave home and all behind so i jump up take off walking,feel called to a certain area throw my thumb up and dang if it aint the man done got me jack up against da car running my name, things like that.To be honest i feel like at times im ready to give it all up fer Him but then think about it and don,t want to, ya know hold on to things, and i know it's just going make me bitter in the end if i don't let go, but it's not about i anymore, ive been called to serve, and am just not sure how to get from point a to point b if ya know what i mean.i jus feel as though ive made a bad decison in my heart and cant seem to shake it. it's like ill make a break fer point b but am brought bake to point a, i just dunno man. May the Lord Christ bless and keep all His sheep forever and evr amen.

When I'm trying to figure out what God wants me to do in my life, I pray. Or one can just meditate. Ask Him to show you His will, and then be patient. Keep your eyes open.

Even if someone doesn't believe in God, I think that there is a reason for everything. I think that if we pay attention, there are signs directing us in the direction we should be going.

Once we are headed in the right direction, things just kind of take their course. It's like a snowball effect.

Remember that things happen for a reason and something that seems like a setback today may actually be a necessary step in where you're going. Stay strong in your faith and keep doing what you know to be the right thing and you'll get there eventually.

Well a seris of events have taken place, and before these events i knew cystal clear what He wanted me to do.Now since these events have taken place it's like my whole worl so to speak has been turned upside dwn, and it all seems like a fading dream to me in a way.It's like a week or two ago my faith was grounded in the Rock and was solid man, and now it's like it's gone or my ego is steping back up or im putting faith in myself rather than God.

What's that line from Fight Club? "It's only after you've lost everything that you're free to do anything." Something like that anyway...

These times when it seems like everything is falling apart can be a test of your faith, but they often lead to the next step. Like Frog said, this is the time to look for signs & you'll know what you're supposed to do. It's especially easy for ego to creep back up when you feel lost, but try to fight it & let go or you may miss the signs when they happen.

Wish I had some better advice to offer, but it all comes down to staying strong and trusting your faith.

Hey ya'll again, Im getting this staightinged out, im just sticking to da original call and have peace about it, it just seems when i doubt it that i get all mixed up and walk by feelings instead of faith. But all is well alot has happened in da past week enough to spin my head and fall down and ask what is going on man.For instance wife leaving, losing a nice farm house on a mountain, kids gone, then it all giving back to me just in a diffrent setting. Man what a long strange trip, ego just kinda krept back up toward the end thru walking by feelings instead of faith, it's a lesson. God bless ya'll, peace :gd_icon: :cool: :gd_icon:

I went through the same thing. Lost my marriage, my home, my office, separated from my kids for various reasons, but I kept my faith and things have slowly evolved into something different, but better, and it's all working out for the good. But I'll tell ya, when it was first happening, I thought I was losing my mind. I had to step back and turn it over to my "higher power". Helped me keep things in perspective.

Hey well I did too had a house a girl I realy loved stuff like that and yeah the crazyness started to set in as well. But i turned to majour heavy Psychedelic use and well now I have got some good qualifications from colledge and now I am at uni haveing a better life than I did. I also go for the buddism way of thinking with there is no god or you are your own god living in a dream world that you are imagining your self that kinda stuff.

But yeah the drugs helped me lots and lots.
