My mother kept breaking down into tears and my father kept comforting her, and I assumed that it was just a result of my behavior and that it wasn’t a big deal. If I’m being completely honest, I didn’t really care what was wrong. I was blinded by nostalgia and I focused more on the people I had just left behind than the people who had been there for me for the entirety of my life right in front of me. The six hour drive home that followed was miserable, as I refused to talk to anyone. My parents made multiple efforts to begin conversation, as they were curious how the program went.
In a sense the church has always been in way of life. Throughout the Old Testament we see that God has always had a person set apart and called out. There are various events in the Old Testament were there are gathering of God’s people. Churches today continue with one shift, now we don’t become Israelites we become Christians. You see this is the amazing part of God’s plan that we are not enemies but we join together with Christ as new people.

She was gone, and I had no one by my side that I felt confident enough to share with. After a little while I started doing absolutely miserably in school, lying to my mom so much, that after a certain amount of time, my teacher called her and told her everything. My mom was so shocked that she could not believe it, my lies lasted for probably about a year and after sometime she has of course forgiven me, but I was all alone through all of this again. I felt so lonely and broken that……I wanted to end my life. I went to the extent of writing a good bye note, many times, but I always stopped myself, believing and on some level knowing that I had to fight and that I had to live at least for my mom, because she does for me.

Pentecost The Holy Spirit started to guide and influence the church at pentecost, and it continues to guide to this day. The Holy Spirit guides the apostles to preach the good news.

It seemed like God was soothing me with His words. God surely solved my life
We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing. He knew just what to say to who; He was such amazing leader; and walked with confidence and never allowed the devil to take away what He had. Bust us? Well, we can never live without sin this is how Paul said but what we can do is when we fall into sin we have to be quick in getting things right. Go to our Heavenly Father and apologise and ask Him self-control.
I love being able to grow friendships and share that time with them. It helps me shape a continuous practice of spending time with the people that are important in my life. When it comes to praying before every meal, I believe it shapes me more spiritually than any other way. I do it because I love the Lord, and I need to spend time with God each and every
God does invite all of us to be a part of his Kingdom and to live under his Son, the King of Kings. God knows His Kingdom is a great one filled with joy and righteousness, He encourages all to join and find the try good that He has to offer for us. God wants to do nothing but give love to us, which I see to be very obvious in how welcoming He is towards man. God’s job description is a fair one, simply hold up you’re end of the deal and He will fulfill all that He promised to. I have found the kingdom to be very open and welcoming place for me, as it will enlighten all in it forever, and God will provide His love for all who serve under

Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought. The idea of God stayed in the back of my mind, but I have recently learned that the back is not the position that God should hold in my life. Missions are an area that my church is very passionate about, so we supports and participate in them every year. The church members always advocate for the yearly summer mission trips, and after going on my first mission trip to Boone, I became an advocate as well. I love working on the mission fields, so I try to go on as many mission trips as I can.
