I'd just like to take this time to say that, although many posters on this thread have gravitated towards statements of faith (ie. Scripture), this thread is open to everyone regardless of their beliefs.

This thread is about community. I hope members won't immediately jump to conclusions based on the inclusion of verses, write this thread off as a subtle way to inject religion, and then opt to not participate.

This thread is your voice. Thus, USE it.

I hear you.
But let me just remind everyone that Christianity is not a religion. It's a relationship with God through Christ. Religion is a man made word, and I tend to try and stay away from religions. They usually end up dividing instead of uniting anyway.
So with that said, I don't care what anyones backround/religion/belief is. If someone needs prayer....then I'll pray for them. They might not even believe in God, but I'll still pray for 'em.
God's greatest commandment is this:
Love God with all of your heart, mind, and soul.
And love your neighbor as yourself.

It's funny how it doesn't say to love your neighbor, as long as they believe what you do. Or Love your neighbor....as long as they're a Christian.
Nope. All it says is neighbor. So everyone on this forum is my neighbor!

....that's how I roll.

Alright, Hawk's off the soapbox.  ;)

Can i ask for some global thoughts and prayers for a dear friend of mine whose wee girl is going into hospital in a couple of weeks to have some toes removed. She has a vascular condition on her leg and this will help the problem - my friend is obviusly upset at the thought but I have to say is a BRILLIANT mum to this wee girl who is in constant pain (shes visited Boston to get treatment)

 It is about community and love.  It doesn't matter what you believe in.   Period.      I have to smile though.  My pastor in one of his sermons spoke about a new member who wan't sure that she liked our church   because "all they do is talk about love"  .  One day she figured it out.  Yep- that's what it's all about.  Plain and simple.  That is what this thread is about too.

' We get to carry each other'--  It is a priviledge.  One love, one heart.....  Peace.  Walk on.......

Philippians 1:6
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Don't let anyone ever tell any of you that you'll never amount to anythin or that you can never change. All things are possible !!!!

Just as an encouragement to you all , "the forum family"  is lifted up everymorning !!!!

always look up and expect a blessing in any way shape or form !!!


grace , love and peace to us all.........

ok this may be a bit long (sorry) but I really think this is something we can all relate to and draw strength from. Here goes.........
Key Passage: Acts 17:13-26
Topic: God's Care; Pain/Suffering
When neither sun nor stars appeared for many days, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope of our being saved was at last abandoned. (Acts 27:20, ESV)
We live in a society looking for quick fixes. As a result everybody claims to have the cure or solution for something.
Got aches and pains? Take a prescribed combination of medicine and/or natural supplements and you're better. Bored? Take a spin in an off-road SUV. Out of shape? Try "Ten Steps to a New You." Wanna get married? Read one of the thousands of books on "How to Find Mr/Miss Right in Six Months or Less."
With so many answers out there, we'd like to think everything has a solution. We don't like not knowing how to deal with a problem. As soon as trouble strikes, we search out the latest and greatest remedies. If we can't find it, we get frustrated and discouraged.
Yet this was the situation that faced Paul and his shipmates. The ship appeared to be at the mercy of the wind and waves. There was no rescue in sight. Fear and hopelessness crept in because they had no obvious answers to their problem.
But this situation was exactly what it took to realize that God doesn't need earthly means to rescue us. His solutions are way above our temporary fixes. God knows the best way to expose our helplessness is to keep hidden the visible and tangible answers.
Life can be overwhelming at times, especially when you see no way out. But God's specialty is rescue missions. And He passionately wants us to come to Him first instead of going to the Internet, self-help books or any other "answer bank."
God is the answer, and we will find incredible peace when we allow His timing and His wisdom to work through our problems
