My life is really stinking right now. Im getting unusually bad grades in school, when Im at home Im not doing any of my work, I am falling in and out of an addiction Ive had for a long time since beginning high school, and as Im getting older I cant figure out what to do with my life. I live with my parents and feel like they dont know me at all. Im stressed out being in college yet not knowing what im doing there. I feel like I've lost all the aspirations I had about 3 to 4 years ago, and like my life is going down the drain. I dont know how to get out of this hole I feel im im falling into. I tend to be a daydreamer in things and end up doing nothing. I dont know how to change my ways to please God with a sincere heart and with honesty inside me. I feel like a hypocrite, a liar, a faker, a spoiled brat, and I dont know how to change. Ive tried many times before but end up coming back. It scares me because I feel like a fake Christian, though I dont do evident things that prove otherwise. I feel like there's no one I can talk to about this. I dont know what to do, my mind is so confused. Someone please give advice... my academic life, my career considerations, my spiritual life, my home life, my personality and my mind are all at stake here due to my weakness inside. I know its all up to me, but I dont know to proceed. I want to repent to God but cant find how to be sincere about it and ACTUALLY repent. I appreciate anyone who can offer help.

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Ro. 8:15, KJV).

Thanks for the help. No, im not on pot :) but it feels that way. Its something im ashamed to mention but its not drugs or alcohol. But anyway, its true, and I appreciate the prayers. Im finding that writing out my emotions and struggles in a journal has been helping... Life is so confusing... thank you though.

I don't know what is going on with me, I am stuck in the mud and I see Fathers outstretched arms. I have been shot down by a dear sister in Christ I thought and I can't get things flowing again. I believe she had a lying spirit and what she did crushed me. I feel my heart and soul have been poisoned its been a month a long season of this feeling in the pits. What do I do?:love:

Hi sophie, GOD loves you dear :)

We all face people that crush us sooner or later (maybe not "crush") but certainly its safe to say we all do something that others may not like. I understand your position. Feel good about yourself by obeying what GOD says: forgive. I know its difficult, especially in some cases where its more hurtful than just mad anger. Just remember this, there is a heaven above you - and Jesus built a room for you to be with Him in heaven eternally, so anything that happens down here will pass away.

Hope that helps :)

I am new here and was touring around the posts, when I read your post and you discribed the feelings that you are feeling, I can identify. However today I do not feel those feelings I did for many years. What happened first I started praying and reading my bible, then I ended up finding and attending a church that I felt unusually comfortable in, and then a short time late the Lord got my undivided attention, and brought me to my knees. I ended up in an approriate 12 step program and ever since than I have had my whole life turn around right form the very start. The 12 step program taught me how to have a personal relationship with my Lord and Saviour, and it also taught me how to surrender, rely on and trust in Him completely, I also continue to learn how not to be selfish and self centered, it's not all about me. I could never enven begin to describe to you how much, in a short period of time, my life has turned around, it is absolutely a miracle.
Had been reborn for alooooong time but had not been walking in the light.Today I am and Wow!! I have to remember the gifts that I recieved from my program and will need to remain there to give back to others what was so freely given to me. Some don't understand that and think that once we have figured this thing out and gotten our personal relationship with Jesus that we no longer need the program only church but truthfully that would be selfish to not be there for the next me that comes in through the door. I have to give it away in order to keep it.
GOD Bless, Love, Peace, and Prayers,

I think you will find the help you seek here you may want to start going into the "live chat" from time to time. The Lord is moving powerfully there. The Word of God tells us
"my people perish for lack of knowledge" don't be without the knowledge you seek when its just a few clicks away. Never try to face trouble alone fellowship with other "members" in the Body of Christ is vital to everyones growth. The more you fellowship with other believers either in a bible believing church or here the stronger you will get.

Sophie...what you have to do is the hardest thing any of us have to do and that is to forgive and forget the matter. Unforgivness "poisons" us indeed as followers of Christ when you can give that person totally to the Lord to "deal with" then you will find peace
like you won't believe.

jje4jesus, I know it's been a bit since you posted, but I hope you check back & will read this. I can tell I'm a bit older but I hope that won't deter you from considering what I have to say. I've had an incredibly rough year...spiritually, emotionally, mentally & somewhat physically. I feel that for every 1 step I tried to make forward, I was knocked back 3.

It did not occur to me until a few days ago when I was "resolving" to do some things different this year as to what might have happened. Last year I made similiar decisions..not really resolutions because I fully intended to follow thru on them. I planned to focus on strengthening my walk with God & since I am a detailed person, I mentally "mapped out" the changes I would make. I got off to a roaring start. And satan noticed...he noticed that I had gotten up again after falling for the millionth time...he noticed I remembered that obedience was better than sacrifice...he noticed that my heart was hungering for God --all by my actions.

That's when I became more than the casual, average Christian to him. Whereas before, there was no particular need to throw things my way...he now did. Thoughts came into my mind that I never wanted there (demons whispering, I suppose), other things too numerous to mention happened.

My point is....satan has noticed you. He's noticed the fact that you keep getting back up & it threatens him. He's the one whispering the things you hear about being a brat, etc. God convicts....the enemy condemns. If you're unsure...pray that God will allow you to hear only what is of Him.

I am sorry this is so long...I hope it offers some measure of help. Don't give up...you can come thru & you will shine even more than you have.
