I was looking around the Internet for divorce support/recovery information, and I ran across this. Grab some tissue.

"Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone -- to have a deep soul relationship with another; to be loved thoroughly and exclusively; but God, to a Christian, says:

"No, not until you're satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me alone; with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to me; to having an intensely personal relationship with me alone; discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be planned for you.

You will never be united with another until you are united with Me -- exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing, one that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the best. Please allow me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I Am. Keep listening and learning the things I tell you.

You just wait. That's all.

Don't be anxious; don't worry. Don't look around at the things that others have gotten or that I've given them. Don't look at the things you think you want. You just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you'll miss what I want to show you. And then, when you're ready, I'll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would ever dream of.

You see, until you are ready, and until the one I have for you is ready (for I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time), until you are both satisfied and exclusively with Me and the life I prepared for you, you won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and thus the perfect love.

And, dear one, I want you to see, in the flesh, a picture of your everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love that I offer you with Myself. Know that I love you utterly. I AM. Believe it and be satisfied."

Twinks, God is what is working for me right now. I just wanted to share it, because right now He is all that's holding me together. For me, if there was nothing to look forward to at the end, then what would my life mean? Nothing really. Nothing would have any meaning. Everything would be just random. You are born, you have a life, you have kids maybe, you get old, and you die. Then what? Blackness? What's behind the blackness? A brick wall? What's behind the brick wall? (Okay, going cross-eyed now.)

I suppose you could replace "Me" with a higher power. I am positive there is a higher power or powers that shuffle our cards, so to speak.

Maybe it's just that the leaders of mankind, from the beginning, have instituted the belief in a god or gods in order to maintain some sort of order. After all, if people were not afraid of hell, why not sin, and sin often. There would be no consequence, except if the sin were against the law, maybe jail time.

I dunno Twinks, this is a deep conversation. No one should be shut out. Even if you don't believe, my belief is that God loves you anyway, whether you realize it or not, and He would never intentionally harm you. He may allow things to happen, for one reason or another, but it's all in the plans He has made for the future. Maybe one day you will too believe, but maybe you won't. I think maybe it's easier to believe than to not. Blind faith is a powerful thing.

I always wanted to study philosophy. 🙂

"I'm not aware of too many things. I know what I know, if you know what I mean.

Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks.
Religion is a light in the fog."

She is the person who wrote that song, from what I gathered on the Internet anyway. God knows, I've been wrong before. 0:)

Twinks, Whyme, If I may put my two cents in. I had been raised to believe in GOD, I am a Christian. I was raised with faith in my heart, and I kept faith in my heart. I always knew this was this and that was that, with no question at all. I also was very much into science and scientific mind. Well in many of the cases science and Christianity does not go well together. We have proof that humans have been on the planet for thousands of years longer than we have been recorded in the bible. So I say OK that was God's doing he knows what he is doing he has reason I don't question it. It is interesting so much of the science, a friend of mine asked how do I just accept all of this and still be able to believe in GOD, and not just in a higher power. Well because of faith. I know that God can do anything I know that all can not be explained by just a mere mortal. Well I made a mistake with my friend. She told me that I "lived in a box"!! What the heck did that mean. Well simply that I only accepted that of what I was told and was ok with it. I thought about it and I thought you know she is right I do live in a box, I am not allowing any other possibility in. I have a mind set that what I believe is right and the only way and what if I was missing out on something more awesome than what is in my box.

I have found out since, that my box, has now and had then all I need. For me, when I got out of my "box" I started seeing that I add turned away from God (as I see it). I lost the faith that He is and was and always will be Him, and you know what came into my mind while I was out of my "BOX" yep suicide! For the first time ever in my life I felt as if I didn't have any reason to be here at all. So I gathered all of my thoughts and I got right back in my "box"! Yeah I might be missing out on some other higher power, but I have not thought about suicide since then either.
For me God, Him, Jehovah, and Jesus that is all I need to know that no matter what no matter who no matter when I will be ok .. I will be safe and I will be loved.

Sue,
First of all God is the author of science. He created the laws of the universe, gravity, electro-magnetic forces, physics, math, the intricate functioning of our brains (more sophisticated than a computer), just to name a few.
People have it all wrong. You are the one that is out of the box, because you are free, liberated and not a slave to the evils and curruptions of this world. You are in the world, but not of it. The ones in the box are the ones that are slaves to their own desires and sensuality, egocentrism and pride.
No one, including Christians, are perfect. Christians are a work in progress and strive to obey God's laws.
Christians are assertive, not doormats. They are confident in who they are through God. They carry their cross and suffer along with the rest of humanity, but they have that assurance, that joy, that contentment, because they know there is light at the end of the tunnel and that the light of Christ is in them.

Well If It wouldn't take the rest of the week to explain all of my feelings on this topic. There really is one simply thing to say. I BELIEVE!!!! Simply put. I do know that God is the author of science, because He is the "I AM" but because I didn't explain myself thoroughly it sounded as if I believed there was two different things there going on. In todays world It seems to me that the scientific asspect of our being is taken out of the hands of God. Like it is two seperate things. I know that it is not but it is hard for me, in the not perfect mindset of being a sinner, I have the hardest time getting around the science without feeling like I am going against my "religion". Almost like I am not supposed to be curious.

Any way I do believe!!!

TWINKS you want to have that piece and you can. Jesus died on the cross for all of us, for you, he knew you before you were concieved and you were worth it. We all were. He loves you and He wants you to know Him. We used to sing a song in sunday school.

He's knocking on the door of my heart, He's knocking on the door of my heart. I don't remember the rest of the words but I do remember when I was a kid I thought it was funny because I never felt any one knocking on my heart. But when I was ten, I remember the night at a revival, I was standing in the pew and the preacher was have the invitation, he sang a little piece of the song, and he said don't ignore the knocking you know He's there, you know, you know, and I did know... There was nothing else I could do. I was saved that night. I know that Jesus knows me and that he loves me. I KNOW!!!!

I don't now about eternal spiritual
resurrection because it is so mysterious to me and none of my earthly experiences gives me anything
to relate.
I do know that if you are devote in
the beliefs that are the cornerstone
of Chrisianity, then no matter
how low you are and how much pain
you are feeling, then your earthly
spirit will be resurrected.
I"m talking about forgiveness,
redemption, gratitutude, turning the other cheek. Learning to love your
perceived enemies or rivals.
No matter how bad you've been cheated on, lied to, or diaappointed by..
You will rise up.

Dear Why me! Thank you for posting it! This is exactly words I live with trusting myself to God, knowing- I will be taking care of. Could not found any better way to word it! I sent it to my b/f- he is not in to “believing”, and he got so nice suddenly! He had been struggling with…what I did to him- lost of love/disappointment, and suddenly he got that “happy shine” again. Hope it will last. (Btw- he is philosophy major- graduating next year). Dear Sue, I was raised not as believer and in my country it was not popular, so we had no information available. But some how Got walked in to my heart and I began to understand him. We used to get together, smocking marihuana, talking about “philosophy”, but not all of my friends were able to accept it. Because my believe and interest in God, he saved my life and gave me everything I needed, and I newer ask for another prove. Right now- I just know more and more of him and he always finds the way to teach me- long as my heart still open. So- what you call “box” is what I call “your personal relationships with God and what he personally told you to know”. And it sure makes sense, if this is what you feel and what you believe.

Dear Twinks! It is an old discussion about believing in God versa believing in man. God told us- never worship man, because there are no men that can perform like a God. Knowing of how limited our abilities are should help you understand, that it takes so much more then simple human brain to control nature. Just to control human body it takes more then our consciousness. I would say simply- just say- I believe, and He will take care about everything else, but it is not going to work for you, because he said- you get what you believe in. So- you need a prove. O.k. Have you ever felt that some thing significant happened in your life you can not explain and can not take credits for? That was first. Try to think more. Like- for me- God saved my as so many time- from jail, from overdose, from suicide, gave me home, family, education, future- there is no way I can take credits for everything he did- I am just not that smart. But I am alive today- so it must be God. Trust me- it works. And I saw many people who clames- God helped them big time at some point and now they believe. Talk to more people. Ask them “why”. Ask God to show it to you, and he will.

'there has to be more to life' there just has to be, because all this, for nothing, what would be the point in that?
