    Hi, I was saved and lived in a christain house. Since about the seventh grade my life has gone down hill with my familiy spliting. I stoped going to church when i moved to my mom's because I was mad at God for letting all the things that happend to tear my family apart. I have done a lot of bad things in my life. What if I have done too many bad things? What If I lost my salavtion? Can you loose your salvation? If I did loose it can I even get it back with all the bad things I have done? I just feel very lost and alone right now.

    I am so sorry for all that you have gone through. Just ask God for forgiveness. God will forgive you for anything. You are in my prayers. Go find someone at a local church and talk to them. There are also many people on this site that will talk to you and listen to you. As long as you have God, you can never be alone. I have felt that way a few times, but I sit down and have a long talk with God and realize He is still there for me. I hope this helps you. Most of all, trust that God can help you and talk to Him. He will listen. Just remember everything happens in His time, not ours.

    I have tried talking to people but last time i talked to someone at my church they took it the wrong way turned around and told my dad and then they sent me to counciling. The counciler then turned around and told my dad everthing that I said. I just feel that no one understands or will listen and not repeat what I say to other people

    Your not alone i can assure you. Many of us have had some of the same life experiences as you(including myself). Take a deep breath and realise God has lead you here for these very specific questions to get answers. I feel in my spirit that they whiegh heavy on your shoulders and that the reason God has lead you here was to reveal to you the true depth of his Mercy and Love. Understand that there is Hope in Christ and that he will never throw you away even when we are so ready to throw our selves away. Once you are saved you are always saved. That is not to say that we don't backslide or fail at times to make the mark. We are all sinners and so desperatly need Christ every day to wash us in his cleansing blood. The enemy will have you believe many daming things about your self and at times he will have you believing it if your fondation is not in the word of God and your relationship with him is one that is outside of full hearted surrender. You must realise satan has no boundry lines even when it comes to attacking your family. He wants to desperatly cut off that relationship you seek with God because he knows you are destine to do great things with Christ. Jesus doesn't see the worst of you he sees the best in you. You must ask your self am i truely surrendering the will of my life for the will of God? Have I repented in those areas in my life that seperate me from the Love of God? With all my heart and strength do i Love God enough to do what it takes to please him and him alone. Have i asked forgivness and put my faith and trust in Jesus to forgive them? Can i forgive myself? Try to ask your self those questions and if you dought any of those areas maybe you might want to ask your self was i truely saved in the first place? Maybe its time to recommite your life to Christ. I'm not at all saying this is you but i can say from experience that was once me. Just remember Jesus Loves you more than you can ever be capable of understanding. He can and will forgive you for every thing you have done and ever will do in your life! He died so you can live! Learn to forforgive your self and turn away from those areas in your life you know are out of step with Gods true will for you. I will pray for you! Trust in Christ his gift is free. remember nothing you can do can ever achieve it. We just need to recieve it and let it change our lives for his Glory!

    You can private message me. I will listen to you. Your family is worried about you. Like SlavetoChrist said satan will do whatever he can to destroy your family and your faith in God. I will continue to pray for you and your family.

    Hi slavegirl...the pastor / person at your church you spoke to probably told your father everything out of concern and love for you, maybe because your young (I don't know your age but it could be a reason). Always depend solely first on GOD in Jesus Christ. Pray often, read the bible often and meditate faithfully each day on GOD. While you were sinning against GOD He still loved you. While you were mad at Him He still loved you and still / always will love you. If you ask for forgiveness, repent and live faithfully and obediently to GOD you have salvation through Jesus Christ always.

    My dad was not what you would call a normal father. When my parents got a divorce and my sisters and i lived with him he put me in charge of taking care of my sisters. He has people that tell him everything even stuff that my sisters or I would say to others that we did not want him to hear. You know how you just need to vent sometimes and you don't really mean it. Well my dad took it real personal and never let me forget anything I ever said. I had not said anything about him or his new wife because he would always say I did even when I did not (I asked my friends and they even said that I had not said anything).He used it all against me till he had enough I guess and kicked me out of the house. Maybe I am wrong but he knew things that I did at home when no one else was in the house. I just don't really understand how people go from the nice and loving people to just plain mean.

    Being mad at God is not the same as no longer believing that God exists. Nor is it no longer believing Jesus exists. SweetGirl as for the bad things You have done you have acknowledged them by saying that they where bad . That means you are repentant in your heart. The Holy Spirit has convicted you and you are in agreement with your Spirit lead conscience that what you did was bad. Through Jesus sins are removed keep listening to the Holy Spirit and all will be well for you SweetGirl.



    Romans 4:

    7 "Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, And whose sins are covered;8 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall not impute sin."



    As for your dad, No person on this earth is perfect. Not you Not i Not anyone. People are people. All we can do is do our best to be our best. Pray for strength from God in your situation, ask for guidance in how to go about your life. And when you feel the Spirit moving your conscience listen to it.



    All Praise The Ancient Of Days

    Agreeing with Adstar we are not perfect.Because our bodies grow to what we call adulthood.The truth is we are all children inside.And still act in that way.Even your father.Try to forgive him,for he knows not what he does.Maybe the next time you vent you should keep it between you and the Lord.Im sure you will get better feedback.

    I don't really understand why people have to drink. My mom let my sisters all underage and some of their friends drink. I feel as if I am loosing part of myself when I see them do that. I feel like I could have done better when I was the one who was responsible for taking care of them. It just makes it so much worse when I am in college and have homework up to my head when my sisters do things like this. I tried to talk to God about it but it never seemed to help. As I thought about it I thought it maybe I could have done more to hold my family together maybe if I have gave more of an effort things would have turned out differently. Thankyou all for what you said it helps to know that people care and are able to help in some way.

    I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. :3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.1Corinthians15:1-5

    SweetGirl, all you have to do is to ask God for forgiveness and to make Him the only Master of your heart. Just pray very much and you will feel very soon His mercy and blessings falling over you! We all are sinners, but the most important thing is to try each day to be better that the day before, to feel sorry for what we have done and not to repeat the same mistakes. You can be saved!!! Trust the Lord and ask Him to lead you on the roads of the life! May God bless you and help you to find the right way!


    Love,
    Christina

    It's Not God's Work

    One thing, let me clarify 100% that what happened to your family about splitting is not the work of God nor does God's will. It happened because your parents are not Christians and if they do, they do not know the work of satan and God's will for a godly family that's why it happened. So, the shortcomings is not with God but both to your parents. Don't blame God, He has nothing to do with it. More so, He is taking care of you right now and your sisters too.

    Secondly, you cannot loose your salvation. Once you accepted Jesus as your personal Savior and Lord, you are saved. John 10:27-29 say that no one can kidnap you from God's hands. But if you have realize your sin to Him, confess it and you can recommit to Him by praying again the prayer of acceptance to Him but asking God to forgive you of your sins from the time you first accepted Jesus up to now.

    God loves you vey much and be strong in the Lord. He's making you strong to unite your family if not to strengthen them and bring to Jesus Christ.

    God bless you and Peace is with us.
