    Is the man she's dating changing his mind a bit?
    Thank you very much! As are you! ^.^

    That's wonderful! I'll be sure to pray for her at least once everyday!

    I haven't gotten any updates from my friend, but my biggest concern is that she's in a relationship with him. It's really breaking her heart and yet, she hasn't learned how important it is to her that she date a believer. And how important it is to God that she not allow herself to be drawn away from Him by this guy. Anyway, I definitely hope and pray that the Lord minister to her boyfriend and save him, but since my sister (in Christ) is in a hurtful situation, that's what's got most of my attention at the moment. x-x;

    Thank you so much for asking!! I'll be sure to let you guys know if and when anything changes!!

    I am going to be away for next week and a half to visit my great grandmother, and she has no wifi. I shall say hello when I get back and I'll continue to pray as well!

    This is one of my favorite worship songs. And as a mermaid, I love the ocean so that may be one reason why!
    Hope you guys like it!!

    I am glad to see the "Sunday School" is still going strong, for I have been away from it to long (ha ha ha)

    I am sorry about your friend Lotus, and I hope the methods I have sent you help you.

    I have a few prayer requests.

    The first is for our fellow mers here. So many of them do not walk (or swim) with him. For a lot of them, the environment has take the place where Jesus should be. The ocean is one of the countless extraordinarily wondrous gifts that God has blessed us with, and we are called to be wise in what we do, but we must never forget the greatest of gifts that he gave us, his son. I pray that they see that as beautiful as this world is, it pales in comparison to him.

    Until recently, I had been in a terrible situation for over a year. I am getting better, but it still troubles me. Anger, regret, shame, disappointment, it all hits me from time to time. I do my best to look forward trying to focus on the now instead of the past, but it still comes back. I just want to be able to live with it, for it will probably never go away completely. Also, to be able to completely forgive those that wronged me is something I need to do. For me it is not just what they did, but also that they knew what they were doing and that it was wrong. From time to time, I can't help but wonder "why?" It sometimes keeps me up.

    I am going to move to Utah soon. I don't know anyone there, and will be hundreds of miles from anyone I do. This is my next big step. I just hope that it is what God wants me to do.

    May God be with you all.

    I'm so sorry you've been dealing with those feelings, Tritons. I'll be praying for you and for your other prayer request as well! There are times that we need to stop and really pray for the Lord to help us get to the root of the issue. There may be a lie you've been believing for a while about yourself - either from something you've believed or something that someone spoke over you. It may have happened too far back for you to even remember it, but it could still be eating away at you. It's times like those during which it's best to just set aside time with the Lord to focus weeding out any of those lies. Praying for Him to reveal them is the best place to start. Then, speaking truths outloud can open up an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to speak through you against those lies. I've had to do this several times in my life and it's helped tremendously each time. I often won't even realize what the lies I've been believing are before the Holy Spirit just speaks out against them through me and I don't even realize I'm forming the words as they're coming out! It's pretty amazing how He can do that. I hope that helps, and like I said, I'll be praying!

    Triton reading your experience made me think to lots of things that happened to me and some friends, well if this helps I want to share with you what I learnt: if someone hurts you don't worry, Good never leaves an injustice to one of his sons unpunished.

    For the rest I can only hope you would feel better and don't be afraid to move in a new city I'm sure you'll find new amazing friends really soon 😊

    Thank you all so much for praying!!! My friend broke up with that guy today!!! Praise God!! She said she doesn't feel like she should really be in a relationship right now. Please, keep her in your prayers as she deals with the aftermath of that break up! It's going to be tough.

    I'm so happy to hear that!!! (even if it seems a bit strange we should be sad XD ).
    Yes I'll keep on praying for her and I have an idea you can make her try the mermaiding experience it helped me out when I was in the same situation so it may help her too I think 😊

    @Mermaid Lotus- That song is pretty! It makes you wonder how on earth a person could look at the beauty of the ocean or even outer space and still believe it was made by a big bang, an accident, by evolution.
    And I’m really glad to hear your friend broke up with him (which haha yes that does sound strange to say). Mermaid Kassandra is right you should hand her a tail and tell her to “Just keep swim'n!” :3

    @TritonsGuard- That is so true! We should definitely pray for that! Also, I have a hard time forgiving too. I still haven’t been able to forgive some people, but what helps is focusing on the good people that are in your life, not the ones that have screwed you over. Keeping busy and doing fun things help meh too, so your not sitting there idly and begin to start thinking...

    My trip to Florida and Tennessee went really well (aside from all the bugs trying to invade the house in FL). I’ve missed so much! By the way, has anyone watched Charles Stanely on television? I recommend watching his vids. I’ve never listened to Joel Osteen though (I heard about him 2 nights ago.) He sounds really motivational and I’ll have to watch some vids of his somehow. Do you guys have a favorite televangelist?

    Oh no I don't! From what I know here in Italy there aren't!
    But it's interesting to hear that someone goes on TV to talk about our religion that isn't always the pope! (joking )

    Anyway what do this people usually do in TV? I really know nothing about that! 😁

    I feel the same way about God's Creation! In so glad your trip went well!

    On the subject of televangelists, I usually don't see hear them speaking of the blood of Jesus (they trend to be more politically correct) so I take what they say with a grain of salt. The best way to test a preacher is to see if they preach the Gospel, the death and resurrection of Jesus, and that He is the only way to Heaven. If they do, they're doing their job well! That's my belief, anyway!

    That being said, I've never heard Charles Stanley, but my sister in law loves him! I'd love to listen to one of his sermons sometime! (^.^)

    I'm glad I found this thread (and the other Christian thread). It still gets me how God shows up where you least expect him.

    I need help getting into a routine of reading my Bible.

    I went to a Christian school until middle school, and one of my classes was a Bible class. I was never good at Bible trivia and having to take tests on the Bible was difficult and it stressed me out so much because I feel like it is something so important that I wish I could memorize. I love how people can say something from the Bible off of the top of their head to make someone feel better. I have a horrible time remembering and understanding Biblical history too. Just recently in the church's college class we had a several part lesson on church history basically outlining how we became church of Christ and where our beliefs come from. I kid you not one Sunday morning our college minister would give a lesson and the next Sunday morning he would repeat the lesson but this time ask questions that I should have been able to answer because I listened to the last lesson but I couldn't remember any of it. Then my boyfriend is there next to me spouting off answers because he has always been really good at that stuff.

    I haven't even memorized the order of the books in the Bible and I tried reading the whole Bible but once I got to the part about so and so begetting so and so I gave up.

    All of this is very embarrassing for me to admit.

    Study bibles are good for that.
    They are broken up into easily digestible chunks and have good stopping places so that you don't read too much in one sitting or stop in an awkward place.

    Or daily bibles where you read a certain amount each day with the goal of reading it over the course of a year.

    And if you get stuck (like the begatting bit) move on and come back to it later.

    Maybe not the most helpful...

    @Mermaid Alea- I know exactly what you mean! The beginning of the Old Testament when the Israelites rebelled against God 10 times was the most confusing for me personally. I had never really read the Bible before, and on my first day of Bible class, they suddenly started saying the Lord's Prayer (which I had never heard before in my life) after the Pledge of Allegiance and I was literally thinking "WTF is going on???" Next they told us to flip to certain books in the Bible. I had no idea there were even "smaller books" in a Big Book and I couldn't keep up. Then they were talking about Moses and I was all "What's a Moses?" Then the Bible assignments came (and we HAD to read it in the King James Version) and I felt so out of place!

    @Mermaid Lotus- I haven't been on really since school started. Everything's okay here with me and I hope everything is okay with you all!

    Thought I'd join in and saying hi. I love the song Lotus shared earlier. It's one of my favourites.

    Hello! Ikr that one's pretty. I think my favorite is "Jesus I Come", the slower version. 'Puts me at ease when I'm stressed.
