Hello everyone! I've just joined this community. To tell you about myself, I come from a family of mixed cultures. My Dad is a Buddhist while my Mum is a Christian. I have accepted Chrsit as my Savior however I have not yet been baptized. I do want to get baptized soon and grow in the Lord. I thank Jesus for the belief I have in Him which has helped me survive through a lot of emotional ups and downs. My prayer request is to find my purpose in life. Is there anything specific that God wants me to do? I don't know what. None of my romantic relationships have worked out which breaks me more and more. I don't really know what to do. I want to feel happy and content . I thank God for all that He has given me. His grace and love has made me come this far. Currently, i am looking for these answers. So please pray for me.

Hi Namrata, welcome,
It's encouraging reading your post how you are thankful to God as He
has brought you through your ups and downs. (We all have them).
I'm sure it's not easy being a Christian in your environment.
Your first purpose is to go out and preach the gospel to the who so ever,
setting a Christian example, so that people will marvel how you conduct
your life even through difficult times.
Have peace in your heart as regards things specific, trust in God, He will
not put you in a situation where you are not ready for, or safe.

In relationships, although you may be with someone, you must never
give up your life or faith for any one. In any relationships you should
enhance each other's life, and not take away, (give me fetch me carry me)
doesn't work.
Don't forget beauty comes from within, a good Christian would be a
good start.
May God bless you in your special life with Him, (relax and trust that God
will guide all your steps, Wait on Him.
With Love, Wnl

Welcome to Talk Jesus @Namrata

Enjoy the forum and online Christian fellowship.

There are counselling and prayer forums here where you can post specific requests. For prayer and advice. You might find you get more responses in those forums as this introductory forum is quite busy and fast moving at times.

Everything that exists has a "purpose" or it would not exist. Your specific purpose will be made more clear to you as you seek the Lord, and grow in his grace. The Holy Spirit will reveal everything God has prepared for you from the beginning. It will not be revealed to any of your physical senses, only to your spirit that was made new.

1Co 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
1Co 2:10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

Hi Namrata, lovely to hear from you and to hear a little bit about you. From what you've written in your post, I'm wondering if subconsciously maybe you're feeling a little bit left out by God? I think we both know deep down that there's nothing further from the truth.

You and I both know that God has a wonderful plan for you but like little kiddies at Christmas we can't wait for Dec 25th, we want it now!

We can speculate and guess. Is Namrata going to be a modern day Deborah (Judges ch. 4) and lead a massive campaign, or maybe she'll be more like Ruth who just seemed to fall in love with a gorgeous guy who fell in love with her and went to some lengths to marry her? More likely God has a Namrata plan individually tailored for you to suit His purposes and your best interests, and it's already underway. You mentioned ups and downs that God has got you through, that's part of your development.

Like many of the Old Testament heroes, God brought them to the front line relatively later in life, even Jesus himself kept His head down for the first 30 years of His life on Earth. Other examples, Abram, Joseph, Moses, Joshua and plenty more besides.

Meanwhile, keep reading and studying your Bible, reflecting on the goodness of God and seeking a deeper relationship and appreciation of God's amazing greatness and love of you.

You mentioned baptism, what a lovely idea - what are you waiting for?

With regards to romance I again counsel patience and wait upon God. If you go hunting you're more likely to make a bad choice. Widen your circle of both male and female Christian friends by going to Christan events (look online), visiting other local church events and Christian holidays. That way you're more likely to happen across that guy that's just right for you.

A verse that springs to mind is this well known verse -
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NKJV

God bless you dear sister.

========================================

Dear Lord God, I pray you'll give both Namrata and me a little bit more patience and a greater faith to wait upon you. I confess that we get so excited about your plans for us that we want to press a fast forward button, but that's not you God.

Replace our impatience Lord with faith, we need to look to you for your timing, not ours. Meanwhile we ask for wisdom and a depth in our relationship with you that we can clearly recognise your leading and speaking to us.

We thank you God that you are in total control and even more than that, that you love us with a depth of love that's limitless. We love you too God.

Amen.
