Hi beloved! I’m sorry to hear that. You have my deep sympathy. I know that you’re feeling upset and you’re afraid of what’s to come. However, I believe that when something’s lost, something greater is to come! I’m sure God will never let your church to fall apart, He’s sending people to help build up your church again. Just trust in HIm dear and trust in His plans. He has something greater in store for all of you! xx
Dearly beloved, when you feel lost, God will find you. No matter how far away from God you may seem today, I know and I believe, that God will outstretch His arms towards you. So RUN!
Throw away all those bad habits, renounce all the bad personalities, claim that the wrong attitudes and traits be gone through Christ! You CAN get out and I know you know how. Restrain yourself from all the temptations, stay away from it. And the next time you are tempted to do bad habits, think of Him.
Choose God all the time. Always choose to do what is rightful and just. And whenever you commit sins, please do not condemn yourself. He came to the world to save, not to condemn. If He doesn’t condemn us, we ourselves, shouldn’t also. Do not look down on yourself. WE are natural sinners, we commit sins, but that doesn’t mean we have to forget that we are already forgiven from all of our sins, past, present and up to the future. JUST SHOW A CONTRITE HEART AND SPIRIT.
Strive not to do the bad habits/sins again. That proves you to be a follower of Christ and a Christian. Remember who you are in Christ and what you have become when He died on the cross for you. It’s normal to feel sad and guilty whenever we commit sins, that just shows a humble heart, but please don’t let it be in your heart for too long.
Read the Bible, talk to Him every minute through prayers for prayers bring us into the very presence of God. God loves you, the sins you have committed don’t have the power to take away the love God has for you. Just remember who you serve, and it’s a mighty GOD! Don’t forget to whom you belong. You are a child of God! You’re in my prayers xx

1 John 1:9 [KJV] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Luke 13:3 [KJV] I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Acts 3:19 [KJV] Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
2 Peter 3:9 [KJV] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
I admire your personality dearly beloved! You are a strong and determined person I believe :) It’s good to know that you have accepted Jesus already and welcomed Him into your heart and life. But accepting Him doesn’t mean struggles end there, it just actually starts. There will always be times that the devils will do all the means to keep us from believing what God has always told us, “not to fear”. And when He said not to fear, He meant in all aspects in life, even the fear of the past. But as you have told me, You are God’s and you are His! Nothing can separate you away from Him not even fear. I believe that now is the right time to be courageous and to live in peace being hopeful to all His promises and believing in everything He has said. He is faithful, always remember that. He is with you always, don’t let the painful memories of being rejected hold you back to becoming the person you’re ought to be in Christ Jesus our Lord! Do not live in fear, God doesn’t want you to live that way; instead He wants you to live life free from worries and fears, to live a joyful, blessed and fulfilled life. So let it be. God loves you!
Dearly beloved, that wonderful man who is about to become a priest is someone whom God sent you to strengthen your faith and love for Him. He is used as an instrument to accomplish the divine plan God has for you. But sometimes we fall and stumble and do not really meet what’s intended for us because of the obstacles at hand. But it doesn’t mean that you, or the both of you, have failed completely. Because you can always try again, no matter how many times it take as long as you don’t stop. Know beloved that you can always start anew. Start a personal commitment with Him, and everything else will follow. Pray hard. I’m sure you could talk to that man still and he will listen still, if you don’t see him often save it until you meet again. Aside from that man to talk to, the best listener will always be there, God above all. God loves you! ♥ Keep that always in your heart.
Hi beloved! ♥ Surely we will pray for your dad too!! Don’t worry because God will provide everything you need no matter how many you are in your household. He will answer your prayers and provide for your dad a more appropriate job! Just believe and wait patiently. God is working it all out for you and your family. Prayers are with you beloved. Don’t be sad! Smile and never worry, He will provide :)
Dear Bree, thank you for this message. Just prayed for you! I pray that you are able to have the strength and willpower to overcome this sin. I know that it is difficult if it has been a long time, but I just want you to know that no sin is too difficult to overcome. God has placed obstacles and temptations in our lives not to stumble us, but to test us and help us grow even stronger with each tough situation. God is with you through everything you do, so believe and trust Him that you are able to overcome it!
Also, remember that for whatever you do, God is watching you. He knows, but He loves you all the same. Just how great is His love for all of us, that though we sin every day, He still loves us so much! He is even willing to forgive us if we repent, and let us start our lives on a clean sheet. We can easily fall into temptation, but do we really want to - and while doing so let God, our Father who loves us so deeply, down? God is waiting to see if you would obey Him or turn away from Him - do you want to disappoint Him? And while doing so, be unfaithful to Him though He still stays faithful to you? We want to do our best for God, don’t we? And that means we should not sin as much as possible, and stay far away from temptation or have the willpower to overcome any temptation.
I say this not to make you feel guilty or shameful, but just to remind you to do your very best for God. I too want to live a holy and blameless life as much as possible, for the very fact that God loves me and I want to love Him back too! Of course, we all still sin but God will always forgive. We can start anew, learn from our mistakes, live a righteous life as we grow stronger and more knowledgeable from our past experiences!
Always pray for strength and perseverance, for God to help you keep this sin far away and for temptation to be in control. I’m so glad that you tried talking to others, because it does help when they pray for you! Confide in a spiritual buddy whom you trust, someone who can keep you accountable and really constantly remind you to stay away from this sin. I am sure your friend will not judge you, but will try your best to help you. Everyone has their own struggles, so there’s nothing to be afraid or ashamed of. Just open up, it’ll be so much easier when people are fighting this struggle with you! And of course, you also have God with you in this :) all the best okay! I know you can do it!!
Do continue to persevere in fighting against your sin. Anything is possible with God :) lead a pure holy life in God’s favour to honour and glorify Him! It is not difficult if you remember how much He loves you :) compared to what He did for us when He sent us His son, fighting our sins is barely nothing. So just do your best! God bless you :)

Hi N, so sorry for not being able to reply to this earlier. I see from the other message that you have already talked to your leader? I’m so glad that she understands and she is trying to help you. What’s in the notebook that makes you want to keep it so much? I believe that your leader feels that some of the things you wrote inside are better to be forgotten, hence wants to keep it from you. I understand that it is not easy to get over your depression so easily, but first be willing to let go! Start writing over in a new notebook, and see if you still write about the same things. Hopefully soon enough you will start to get over the past and gain a new perspective on your future! Remember that God is in control, just put your trust in Him :)
That being said, I am so so happy that you took the step to open up to your leader! <3 It is always good to confide in someone, so that they can help you and keep you accountable, to make sure that you keep close to God. It may be hard when your leader tries very hard to help you in ways that you find difficult to accept, but know that it is all for your own good. She does those because she really wants to help you! And I believe that it definitely will. Just learn to let go, and be courageous enough to try any kind of way to improve your situation :) I promise you that losing your notebook does not mean you are losing a part of yourself, you are just starting anew on an unblemished, clean page! This is a golden opportunity given to you by God, be willing to take it :) I am sure you will soon look back and be glad of the decision that you made!
I pray for your well-being and pray that you will have the strength and courage to get through whatever situations it takes for you to tide over your tough time. May God bless you! He is with you in this, every step of the way! Do not be afraid to lean on Him for help :) depend not on yourself, but on Him! Don’t dwell on the past; look towards your bright future :) really, the possibilities are countless and your future can most definitely be one that you have never dreamt of! God can do anything!
Thank you so much for telling us all these so that we can try our best to help you. We all love you!! And there are people out there who love you too :) most importantly, God’s love for you is wider and deeper than any ocean :) God bless, and do send us a message again! <3
Yes dear you will always feel better if you let it all out! :) Just make sure that whoever you open up with, is someone who could be trusted. I’m sure your leader is someone you can trust! :) ♥ that’s good to know beloved!! I’m happy for you, I pray for your happiness dear! I can’t tell that it’s very simple or easy to say that you want your notebook back badly. But if you just talk to her in a nice way, and if you just tell her everything that your notebook means so much to you, I’m sure she’d understand and give it back to you. :) Whatever makes you happy, I’m sure she’d go for it too!! Merry Christmas beloved! I pray that your progress continues on! I pray that God may bless you with all the desires of your hearts that could make you happy, because you deserve it. God loves you! Enjoy the Yuletide Season ^_^ <3 more blessings and favors beloved N!
