  1. i do read bible smetyms bt laziness prevails in me … bt iv strtd to pray evrynite . it gives me happiness n strength. i feel near to jesus n safe. aftr readin da above lines i confess…

  2. I realy liked those 25 steps n thy realy helped me to retroinspect my ways,thanks God for inspiring us whith those kinds of quotes

  3. I know i need to start reading the bible- even just a little each night and I need alot of spiritual growth. I do believe in Jesus my Lord andSavior! AMEN!!

    • Do not wait or procrastinate…Share your testimonies of what Jesus has done IN YOU to change your (old ways) into (new ways) which Bless other people through your faith !! This can only be done with a relationship with Christ Jesus !! Renew your mind…Read Your Bible, better yet join a Bible Study group with your church :)

  4. When I sense a falling away from Christ I go back and read all of the books of Proverbs and Psalms and then, Proverbs again! This will convict you inside and wake you up and cause you to humble yourself back unto the Lord again! Then, I begin with the New Testaments from beginning to end and make sure I’m praying every morning and night. God will see what you are doing in private and now you are trying and he will renew your spirit!

    • It is best not to fall away at all :) Jesus loves you sooo much and would like to Bless other people through you !! Relationship with God will treansform your life :)

  5. so what then? if your spiritual self has deteriorated to this point, if you have grieved/quenched the Holy Spirit, what can be done?

    • Repent and do your first works
      Revelation 3 says: Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief. (Revelation 3:3 NLT)
      Also read 1 John 1:9 which says: But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. (1 John 1:9 NLT)

  6. So what do you do when you are living number 25? When you have suffered so much that you purposely shut down because you could no longer take the pain? Is that an epic fail on the part of a Christian? I would like a direct answer please? Please tag me in your response.

    • knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself RESTORE, CONFIRM, STRENGTHEN and ESTABLISH you! – 1 Peter 5:9-10

      God opposed the proud but gives grace to the humble – James 4:6

      we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us – Romans 5:3-5

      Just remember June that we all go through sufferings and we all feel pain and Jesus went through the ultimate suffering and pain for our freedom. Having a relationship with Jesus doesn’t mean we won’t feel pain but we have a defender, a strong shield, a rock! He is our refuge! And through these sufferings God wants to strengthen us for in our weakness His strength is made perfect. Pain can sometimes leave us feeling hardened and jaded but God is just waiting with open arms for you to run to Him and He will restore you so when we truly humble ourselves in His awesome presence He will show up HUGE! God wants you not to lean on your own understanding but trust in Him with all your heart and He will make your paths straight! God loves you so much and He will always be there for you and He will never leave you. Just lean on Him.

      • There is freedom from your suffering when you have a relationship with Christ Jesus and BELIEVE He paid the price of your suffering you WILL FIND JOY !!!! Turn your eyes to God :) Find a church with Lifegroups and join one…people are waiting open-armed with the Love of Jesus, to embrace you !!
