We don't ever really die and this life is a gift to us. It is filled with lessons and tribulations. We take those lessons and what we learned along to the next event or life God has for us. God gives us free will and for some that means they are free to kill or maim in the name of themselves or the government. God does not want this and sends angels to influence lives on this planet so we may live a better life. But, in the end this world is made up of the aggregate of our decisions and our actions, not God's. So the evil that dwells among us is made by people's decisions. God intervenes sometimes for his own reasons. there are plenty of miracles done to modern day people. Pray and God may consider your requests if it is in the interest of his plan. There is an eternal spirit within us all and this earth suit we all wear is replaced on the next journey. Have faith that there is a higher power and that those that die will be lifted up to take on the next level of their learning in love through God.

There is a spiritual warfare going on, so don't let the evil forces win. Repel evil thoughts and deeds and embrace your neighbors and friends and love them like yourself.

Exactly my thoughts on the situation. Friends find it very hard to believe i "find" all that I wish for... I have furnished my new apartment with items i found in the trash. I needed a loveseat, and the next day someone placed it in the dump area. The ncool thing about it is that it was the exact colour and style I envisioned on having... ON a walk I mentioned I was thirsty to a friend, 20 paces later i found a cold beer laying in the field we were crossing. I dont "pray" to any god... but the power of belief is strong....



God provides miracles to the disbelievers too, to open their eyes and give them examples of his miracles. Heed this and build your faith after these examples. God embraces all religions, especially the one that brings him closer to you.

God also gave us Doctors and answers to address the plague of Ebola too. His worlds grow and develop with all the eccentricities that it entails. Trust that if you died from Ebola that he would grant you another life to live or a seat in heaven if you were ready for that.

Yeah.

Isn't it amazing how our god given doctors cured cancer? Think of all the misery and suffering there would be had they now.

To answer you non sarcastically, no...god did not give us those things. And FYI...I really don't think that the promise of a better afterlife if a valid reason for him making innocent beings suffer in this one.

Isn't it funny. You praise god for the good things but never blame him for the bad.

Thank you god, for saving us from that tornado....that you allowed to happen and created.

A very analytical and fact based Neurosurgeon once thought as you before he had a near Death Experience. But now he sees there is life after life.

I sure hope so. The cats and I are about to be evicted from my apt on wednesday. I am looking for a miracle but alas none has come my way. I have prayed but looks like my guardian angel or whatever is relaxing on some beach and have turned the answer my prayer phone off. I am sure they will get the message once I am on the street and the cats probably euthanized by then. Oh well, such is life.

Sorry to hear about your situation. I can empathize since money troubles are something I deal with too. Pray, but also reach out to others for help. Prayer is not an instant fix. Sometimes there is a longer lesson we are met with. I will add you to my prayers tonight. I hope you find a satisfiable resolution to your woes.

Hey, I'm skeptical too, but watch the video. Also watch the Anita Moorjani TedTalk video and a few more from Howard Storm (Clive Photography vids) and Bruce Van Natta on Youtube and you might just open yourself to the idea that the universe is open in ways we don't always see.

God doesn't force you to worship him, so you have the free will to deny him, but that doesn't mean he doesn't exist. This world isn't heaven so we have trials and tribulations here for only reasons God knows. Don't blame him. Try to make the world better around you. You are part of the answer to making this world a better place. Tragedies happen, but that doesn't mean God is responsible or hates us. It' just the way this level of living is for us here. Your spirit lives on after this world, and when you are pure of heart you'll join the others in heaven that are pure of heart and soul.

Reach out in prayer to the Holy Spirit and God. Find your faith in some place of worship that you feel comfortable with and read the Bible for other wisdom. You may find more answers when you do this.

Once I asked God for a bike.
But I knew God didn't work like that.
So I stole a bike.
And asked God for forgiveness.

Where and when did you go to engineering school, if you don't mind answering? My best friend and I are So Cal musicians and we did the same thing back in 1990 - 1992. We attended a really great school called, IAVE. The Institute of Audio-Video Engineering in Hollywood. We lived on Larrabee and Sunset Blvd. Down the street from the Whiskey and the Rainbow. Great memories...
I have a couple of stories to share, but it'll have to be after I return from work...

Ok.

My son was born with a congenital heart defect called HLHS. The left pumping chamber was not functional and we were told that he needed three open heart surgeries so they could stage a palliative solution without which he would die. It was so bad when they first saw it on ultrasound that the doc wasn't sure he would be born. The first time they saw it, the doc wasn't even sure of the diagnosis given how bad it looked, with a large sac of fluid around the heart.

I prayed for him then, and sent as much "healing energy" as I could to that little boy. I wish I could say he's been completely cured but the next untrasound showed the sac of fluid gone and the heart looking better, but the damage and scar tissue were already done. The surgeries could go forward.

Flash ahead to him at six months old. He's had two surgeries already and we are waiting to see when we should do the third one. He goes into massive heart failure. We rush him to the big hospital four hours away to see what can be done. He's in the ICU for over a week, unable to wean off the meds keeping him alive. They get me to fill out heart transplant permissions. Finally one of the docs said that they thought he might not make it and it all clicked, the social worker coming to visit, the chaplain, etc. why they didn't give it to me straight sooner I didn't know. I went to my car and cried a storm. I had been there alone with my husband four hours away and caring for our child with autism. It had been a total of ten days in the PICU.

As an aside, I had run out of money completely and has just given my last dollar for a cup of coffee. Then someone I first met, also a mom of a patient, handed me an envelope. She said "this is Gods money. He wants you to have it. ". I told her I had literally just spent my last dollar and wouldn't have anything more in my account for another week until I got paid and then most of that went to pay bills. It was $100.

Back to the car. I was crying heavily as I had been keeping it together for the whole time we had been there. I sent my anguish up to whomever might be listening and said very clearly " you say to ask, so I'm asking. I want him to live. I want my boy to live."

They did one more ultrasound a couple days later, and to their surprise, my son had started to recover function. It was kind of a miracle.

Flash forward to now, we are in a delicate / bad place again. But I have hope. I do however need to keep my health insurance, so you can imagine what I'm praying for now.






AB




Hugs and I will also pray for you both!

I think if you got the gist of what God sent Jesus to show us, namely that it is that love of fellow man and helping your fellow human is the answer to our woes. By working together we overcome our difficulties or at the least soften the difficult circumstances out of our control like natural disasters. God is not a quick fix, it is a belief in ourselves and him and the love that we share. God created us as beautiful flowers to bloom in his garden, with each of us contributing our own talents to people and the earth. God gives us our own talents to help ourselves and others. That's God's plan and the big picture. When we purify ourselves and change the world in that way, we won't have the threat of war or poverty like we do today. It's a simple, but powerful plan. People can learn to overcome their own egos and contribute to others. In doing so, they gain satisfaction from the giving of talents and efforts. God will take note and reward us in ways during life and after life here on earth.

Do you have faith that your positive efforts can change things around you? God does.

I personally had an experience where I pulled a homeless man off the street corner and took him to lunch at Chipotle. Others saw that I did this and contributed to him in the form of food gift cards for Chipotle. Another came over after I left to offer him some work to get him back on his feet to help himself. The management staff at Chipotle thanked me the next day for my kindness and said it inspired others to help this man. I did little more than I would do for anyone I saw in need. I also made sure he was using the cities resources for homeless people, since I knew that was the best answer for most in need. So in the end the lesson to me was that caring for our fellow humans is infectious and does work as God intended with Jesus's life examples to us.

Don't look at what the world doesn't have now. Make the world a heaven on earth with your actions and contributions. If we all did this, our world would surely be the better place you and God want it to be.

Prayers Answered




Her ongoing search for love, and little personal support, kept her in the porn industry. It was something she never dreamed she would end up doing, but the doting photographers and the affirming fans seemed to fill her heart’s empty places. Willing to do anything for “love,” she sacrificed anything to get it…even abuse. She met a man who took over managing her porn career and pushed her to do more hardcore shoots. For three and a half years of the seven years Crissy was in the industry, she was in a physically and emotionally abusive relationship with a man who took all over her money. He was what people in the sex industry call a “suitcase pimp.”

After several suicide attempts, Crissy left that relationship with the help of her personal assistant. One night, she cried out to God and asked Him to prove He was real. Nothing she knew about God was what she learned about in Sunday school as a child. She thought no one would ever love a woman like her because she had made so many mistakes. She felt dirty and alone. She prayed for God to send her a sign. He did. A couple of days later, He sent a new friend into her life who told her about Jesus. She knew without a doubt God has used him to help her break free. That day, Crissy left the porn industry and has never looked back.
