Today's sermon touched a nerve in me today. It was about fathers and how important they are in the spiritual development of their children and how they help to shape their children's lives. I was never particularly close to my father (my parents divorced when I was little.) and he believes the Bible is a bunch of fairy tales. Is it painful to see him act this way? Yes, but all I can do is pray that one day he will realized the value of God's Word and how it is more precious than gold. I wonder sometimes what it would be like to be raised by a father who loved and honored the Lord.

Thank you. That was beautiful. Tears are from heaven. They allow our souls to bleed. I definately need to give it to God. Thank you for the gentle reminder.
Beautifully said. I have a met a few harsh critics in my lifetime but now that I have God confidence versus self confidence, their words don't affect me anymore. I know that God loves me and that I have value because I am his child.
That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It's amazing how the Holy Spirit moves and flows through our lives with such transforming energy.
That's beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
Yes I have. You can read my comment above. I really do not know. But this does happen when you really connect with the Supreme Soul. It may be repentance, love or just a feeling of ecstasy that some people do cry ceaselessly sometimes in a Church.
I understand what you're saying. I was at my Uncle's memorial and his daughters speech made me start bawling but I knew the focus was supposed to be on him and I didn't want to make a spectacle so I rushed to the bathroom for a great big cry.
It feels so good after, doesn't it? Almost like you're being freed from some type of bondage. I feel more humble and meek after a good cry, that's for sure.
Sorry to hear that duffsmom. I can only imagine what you and your family are going through. I pray that God gives you the strength to carry forward. God bless you.
Thnak you. Isn't that the truth? It's the Holy Spirit within you that makes every fiber of your being feel in a way that is beyond one's control. God bless you JThomp42 for the gentle reminder.
