After years of searching in vain for answers and actually trying to find belief in faith it finally happened. How I came to believe is pretty amazing. Well....I think it is but I know it is special for everyone. I find myself now thanking The Lord for everything and praying constantly. I'm learning to accept that things happen for a bigger reason than any of us and sometimes you get good things that come out if really horrible things if you only look for a positive.

I'm hoping to make a few friends to share my almost DAILY at this point realizations about just how awesome GOD is in our lives.:)

Welcome and congratulations on making such an important decision. This a great forum of believers who will be glad to share with you. If you need prayer for any reason, just ask there are always prayer warriors ready to pray for any need.

Thank you bargoo! I'm happy to be here. Like I said.... My journey has been amazing. I started to visit with a pastor local to me to share my story and met a few times before the holidays. I really want to meet with again. It felt really good. I've had really bad experiences before when I was "trying" to find my way. But the funny thing is that when I wasn't trying at all is when my life changed.

I have had rapid fire non-stop bad things happen in my life (including death of close family and my oldest child diagnosed type 1 in the hospital in critical condition).!!!!!!

My husband told me that the devil leaves you alone when you are either on his team or not on any team at all. When you join the good guy team the devil starts to pay attention to you and tries to ruin your life and make you give up faith.

That's how he explains his outlook. I kinda like it.

God is so good! Luke 15:1 is always my favorite. We are all lost sheep and now the whole Kingdom is celebrating your return to the flock! Hallelujah!

Yes! HE is truly a gift to everyone who will accept him.

I have to share an example of a gift from HIM...

Within days of my daughters type 1 diagnosis...

I felt so lost and desperate. I prayed so hard for her survival first and foremost (she was in ICU for a week very critical- went from fine to critical almost overnight-very scary) but also for the strength she was going to need to live her "new life".

The amazing gift that was sooooooo totally unexpected was that her father (my ex-husband) finally after 7 years has decided to move on to a positive future. He will actually speak to me and my new husband and we have been talking almost daily about her and how to best take care of her. A miserable relation (for me, my kids and my new husband ) has changes into something so amazing for all of us! I have his new wife to thank (and I do at every opportunity! Love her!!!) for starting him on this new path. I believe The Lord was working through her and I am so incredibly grateful that she recognized and acted on his will.

Amen.

The absolute most important part of life.

Congratulations!! It is amazing how God works to bring us to Him. I'll keep your daughter and family in my prayers. And, I agree with your husband that Satan will work to cause you trouble and doubt, so keep in God's word and talking with other believers. God bless!

Today is my oldest daughters 11th bday !!! Given her current/recent medical challenges I'm extra grateful today that we celebrated another birthday !

I am feeling a little guilty about my diet though. Most days I'm really good and stay on track. But today since it was her birthday and she was back in the hospital all day for a follow up with her endocrinologist I didn't get time to eat myself and then she got to choose dinner. Not the best food choice for me but a treat for her so I gave in and ate what he family was eating.

I hope I don't go up tomorrow. It's always hard when one day of being off track seems to through you off weight loss for a few days.

Mo3, so good you got to celebrate with your DD. If you keep your off plan eating to just one day it probably will do no harm.

Happy Birthday to your daughter!

I agree with Bargoo-one day off plan usually doesn't amount to much. Sometimes, if eating in a restaurant, I get water-weight gain from the amount of salt they use, but that's usually gone within a couple days.

Went birthday party shopping at the mall with my kids. 11th birthdays are a big deal for a not so little girl anymore:). I walked straight past the pizza place and didn't look back. I was headed to see if I could fit into a size smaller jeans while I was there.......I ended up buying them! My new motivation is to comfortable fit in them since they are tight but not really as much as I thought. They buttoned. But barely. I didn't think I could get them past my ankles.

Adrian Rogers used to say that if you were not in collision with the devil, then you are in collusion! Simply put, if you're not running in to him at every turn you're probably going the same way he is...I like that, too!
