  1. i liked your second quote, opened something up to me.
    May God Bless You.

  2. I haven't read that book or heard about it up until now, but I believe courting is pretty simple. God told us and we all understand that we should be pure in body and to not commit sin. The same also for the mind. Ph. 4:8,"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, watsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise think on these things." I believe though that we shouldn't play around with temptation...like Joseph. Don't get me wrong, he was a great man of faith, but he went into the house alone knowing that Potipher's wife would be there and allowed her to get close enough to where she was able to grab his coat. Don't play with temptation. My family isn't the most godly family you'd find on the planet and frankly if I started dated someone out of the blue it wouldn't really matter much. Not even the fact that I would have more freedom with that person than any godly parent would deem suitable. If I had a boyfriend he wouldn't want to meet my stepfather and I wouldn't want him to meet him either! It's understood that not everyone has the "picture perfect" life. But you can make it as less tempting as possible! Seek God first, then godly counsel. If you're parents can't be it then look to the church! Besides kissing and hugging and holding hands dating? ... That leaves plenty of room for a broken heart, thoughts that you can't get out of the mind, the corruption of the mind, and room for lots of sin. No thanks. ^ ^ I'm saving it ALL for the altar! :Bleh BTW: I don't believe Jesus would go around kissing and hugging his girlfriend before marriage...
  3. High school will be over soon and I can't wait to get to college!! I'll actually learn something!!!!
  4. Well... I don't do anything. lol. It's just kind of like a normal day with lots of candy, flowers, and hearts. Come to think of it I don't think I really had it in the conscious thought in the past few years... 0.o
  5. Wow... You really had me hooked in the beginning. The "perfect picture" of love. lol. Until I found myself frowning a bit. I guess I've been running from Him a bit. Or rather expecting to reach the finish line when I've got to take it step by step. At times I feel and realize that Jesus is all I need, but I can't say it remaines forever like you decribed it. There is always that conscious thought that He's there and the He's in control... Well, a lesson learned. Even if I'm really outdated on this subject, sincerely, thank you. It made being single something that should be taken advantage of. Sorry for my trip. ^ ^;
  6. Alright, I should write now. It is a very strange and seemingly hard challenge for me to be able to read by Bible devotely and to pray devotedly at the same given point of time. If you don't understand that: I read my Bible, prayer drops. I pray, Bible reading drops. I have, thank the Lord, found a solution. Taking walks in the morning with God, then reading my Bible. Although it's been terribly cold outside... Goodness. Other than that I want to get up more on my piano practicing, study my Bible more, and wait on the Lord in what He wants me to do and, Lord willing, praying for a future spouse. -^ ^-
  7. :goodpost: If I may ask, what is exactly angering your parents about the church or the pastor? I know we're supposed to obey our parents and honor them, and it's times like this when we feel that all is hopeless. My friend and I were going and are still going through somethings till this day. Situations that just confuse and frustrate a person. That's when at Sunday School that we were reminded that God is in control. CJ, God is not only in control, but He made your parents that way. I know we can all act out in the flesh and it could, and sounds like something they're doing. It's frustating, I know. I may not have gone through what you're going through, but remember God is in control. He knew this was going to happen. Your parents may not have been or acted as they should, but God takes everything and weaves it into His master plan. With or without your parents on your side He'll place you where He wants you. You can rest assured on that!
  8. Wow. That's so cool to be called of God. I haven't recieved anything like that, but I'm waiting eagerly on Him! Even if what He wants me to do seems at the time...out...there...lol. Eh, if that's the case He'll change my desires. So, how did you all feel that God was calling you to where He was calling you? Was it what you thought it would be? Were you expecting it? Stories are always exciting. ^ ^ Unless you mind... > >
  9. You know that's something that I've wondered myself. I could have a descent conversation about God with the older members of the church, but when I try to talk to others about God...conversation falls through. There is only a person or two that I believe that I could talk about God with, Meagan, my best friend and a boy named Nolan. Personally I'd say that the more of a relationship that teen has with God or the more time they put in studying His Word instead of focusing on the cares of this life, (boy/girlfriends, school, fashion, beauty, etc...) then they'd be more likely to talk about God with you. Not in an immature or overly "I'm so fake I use pretty language". It's been my own experience to know many Christian teens that are immature about God and the things of God. This would have been highly frustrating if I hadn't had Meagan. Then again, it still gets me at times. We're head of a club at school called Conq's for Christ...but the teens want more of a 'social club'. As ilovejw said, it's better to live the Christian life than to fake it. I know someone like that...sofar I've only seen a lot of frustration and bitterness. Ge wiz. Sorry for the long post! ^-^;
  10. Thank you for the welcome everyone! Kevinmiller: No, not really. lol. I just find a liking in the language. I hope you have fun on your trip! :smile Samer: ??? lol.
  11. Yeah! It's been so exciting in my church as Meagan, my best friend, and I watched in this past week Zach Tavias get saved and baptised. I had known him since middle school and Meagan since her childhood and it is just exciting to see! But everyone grows in grace little by little. Zach still has things that he needs prayer for. You don't have to pray about it, but if you're looking for something to pray about please do! :: Giving up drugs :: Obeying authorities :: Stop cursing :: Understanding and Wisdom- Well, let me explain. If you're a converted Christian you see the world in two different lights. Zach still needs understanding and wisdom in this area. :: Bible college- Pray that he goes! (Lord willing) It'd be great to get him grounded and know why he believes what he believes. It's either West Coast Baptist College or Golden State Baptist College. (Lord willing or whatever he decides! ^w^) Church In the past few months that I've been at Lompoc Valley Baptist Church I've noticed our growing numbers. More people are beginning to come to church and I believe the Lord is really working in our midst! :: Building expansion- It's getting expanded! Pray that God's hand would be upon it! :: Members- Pray that we would 'Strive Together' for the furtherance of the Gospel.
  12. Hello everyone! It's nice to meet you! My name is Chesley Anderson and I'm from Lompoc Valley Baptist Church in California. It's so good to see that there is an actual online website that Independant Fundemental Bible-Believing Baptists can go to! My friend, Meagan, came across this website, but she didn't know if she should get involved with it. So I stopped by and sure enough I love it here! I hope to uplift Christ in this Forum with everyone here. If you want send me a message and say hi or if there is anything that I can do for you just let me know! Arigaato, Chelsey Anderson
