May 31, 1. This is an excerpt from a personal blog post that I wrote. I'm posting this here because I am in desperate need for guidance and edification. Please help me find my faith again. I always wanted to believe. I wanted to go down to the altar and pour out all my fear and sorrow and pain to the foot of the Cross and have Jesus reach down and put his hand on my shoulder and fill me with some glorious Holy Spirit that would bring me that peace which passes all understanding.
Sadly, He never did. Where was He when I needed Him the most? Why was I still dead inside? I cannot go full fledged Atheist because there have been too many instances in my life where God has made Himself completely undeniable to me. But if there is a God, I am almost convinced that He wants nothing to do with me. I feel like a truly lost soul. I just want to be a good son for my mom as she fights colon cancer; a good big brother for my brother Conor who is God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation with his fathers loss of visitation rights; I want to be a good friend to all of the many people who have stood by my side through so much despite the fact I rarely make time for them to return the favor; I want to be a good neighbor to the strangers that cross my path instead of being selfish and self-absorbed.
Maybe death would be better? Not physically, but dying to everything I thought I knew. May 31, Fremder Mann - Su Kramer - Lampenfieber teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today? May 31, 2. I hope this will suffice for now, brother :. May 31, 3. There should be no struggle! Most likely the reason you never experienced the saving grace of God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation Lord Jesus and felt His presence, is because you never received Him in true faith.
Have you ever read John 1 ; John 3 ; John 14 and asked God to make that clear to your soul? Without the Lord Jesus in your heart you will have no part in God. Why not give up religion and turn to the Savior? I will pray to that end for you, friend. Last edited: May 31, Like x 1 List. Jun 1, 4. Hi cmmarq, you are NOT too far God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation for salvation.
That is another heretical thought placed in your mind not by yourself, but by the enemy. Here is your weapon against such thoughts: For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, to No Remorse (I Wanna Die) - Various - Spawn The Album you to God. Does it say that Christ died for some sins?
Some less heinous sins? Some small sins? Nope, none of those. Christ died for our Sins, regardless of how you feel about the sins. I think one of the biggest obstacle you place in front of you is the 'feelings' you have about your sin. You aren't god are you? Feelings come and go, the Truth stays. Secondly, we are all fallen and imperfect. We all get angry, frustrated, disappointed with others, ourselves and God. I would know because I just threw a tantrum with our Father yesterday But as long as we reconcile and look toward the Perfected Truth and fellowship with Him, we are on the right track.
Life here is a process, a tough and painful one, and God is willing and able to work that out with you for His Glory and your salvation. Does that mean that if you say a prayer tonight that you are perfected instantly? Again, no. Because God will lead you to the truth and the freedom that you want in His time. Here's another weapon for you: He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
Ecclesiastes It says - in His time - not yours, not mine, not others, His. So to conclude, nope you are not too far gone from salvation. He loves you and is calling you, NOW. Go forth The Rodent Song - The Trouble With Larry - The Trouble With Larry receive His gift and persevere to bear fruit for His Glory.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, Romans Last edited: Jun 1, Jun 1, Jun 2, 5. Christ said in three separate gospels "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
Please understand that I am in no way making any assumptions about you, rather I am only giving suggestions as to where you may search for the joy that is promised you.
Have you crucified your former life, or do some vestiges remain? As you inventory your daily existence, do you spend time or energy in endeavors that do not improve your relationship with God?
What evokes the greatest emotional response within you? Whatever it is, does it also matter to God? The bottom line is that whatever you care about most is what you worship. God will meet you where you are, but remember that He gave all for you.
Are you giving all for Him? How much skin do you have in the game? True joy comes with the daily decision to select Christ among the many paths presented to you. As you find yourself being tempted, do you indulge or do you rather rejoice with victory in Him?
Just as you cannot serve two masters, you can only have one life. In order to accept His new birth, you must abandon your old one. It isn't doing you any good anyway. God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation pray God's peace, love, and understanding for you, my brother. Jun 2, Jun 2, 6.

Christianity isn't about living under a set of rules, it is about trusting Jesus which in turn produces love for others.
There is an element of perseverance, that God will give you, in situations which are difficult, but these situations are all meant to prove your faith genuine and develop more good deeds through the Holy Spirit The fruit.
I too was in a similar situation, and felt God had rejected me, but I came back to God, repented and am now living a fruitful God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation through the Holy Spirit's direction. Also, if you're not part of a church, you'll need to start going again, in order that you might get the encouragement you need in your walk with God.
It's good to know that you have God - Christopher Alvy - Beyond Salvation to confide with us about your situation.
