Romans 8:18

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Deepen your faith my friend. Pray for wisdom and guidance to handle any an all situations. Build a relationship with Jesus. What you need is association, get in that word everyday.

There are people that don't even have water that comes out of a faucet today. It's a great day today.

2pac - it was Barnes & Noble where I found the DB book too, and prayer lead me right to it.

Hey all, 2TP, mentioned this thread and I'm finally getting to it. Not caught up on everything but working on it.

A point someone made to me a while back is that prayer is a spiritual weapon. When we pick up a weapon its typically because someone is trying to hurt us. This is part of a spiritual battle against our souls.

IMO, there is sometimes a view that prayers is like a menu. We ask for what we want and expect it to be brought to us. A better image may be that prayer is actually a sword or shield (put on the full armor of God). And when we pick it up, we use it to fight through attacks, strikes against us and other traps that evil forces have placed against us.

And when the battle seems toughest, thats when we must hold on to our weapon and continue fighting.

Yes, praying for the strength to keep walking the walk, praying for the wherewithal to face the dark, recognize and face our own ego, to keep faith when there arc storms everywhere, to have the guts to surrender to a power greater than our own free will and our minds.

Just spent the evening catching up on the entire thread.

Antlers - I do feel your frustration. I made the comment about the "menu" before I read the thread so I hope you don't think it was directed at you because it is not.

Your concerns are real. I struggle with them too. I don't have the answers to why some see God's answers so clearly and some don't. I wonder many times why my marriage has not been restored yet either. But I do believe that God is working not only on me but on my W as well.

Its pretty late so I'll most more later.

Hi all! I am new to this form so bare with me. I don't know for sure "where" to post my situation? In a troubled marriage and my husband wants "me" to move out....when he is the one who is not happy and talks of divorce.

antlers:

Did you ever think about how you "stumbled" on to it? Maybe this was one of those little signs from god. You can't just pray for things to change and expect them to change. You have to pray for the help to change them and god will show you ways and show you things to do. You just have to be open to accepting them.

If you are here, on DB, it is a great thing. I believe god led you here because he knew that you needed more help and support!

I had been praying for help and feeling so longely then I stumbled onto DB as well, it has been a blessing for me. I believe if I wasn't here I wouldn't have come as far as I have and might not have had the strength to hold out and delay my D as much as I have been able to.
