I will be simple: the lack of faith is my lack or certainty of a call from God to do something more than what is written in His word. (or at least what I understand to be written in His word) I think of all the great men of the bible and it seems one thing is for sure, they KNEW God was asking them to do something. From Noah to King David, these men (somehow) understood in there heart that God, not men nor just good intentions, was calling. My lack of "faith" is not knowing for sure it is God speaking and not just my own interpretation of what I perceive to be God. Let me give an example: If God was "calling me to be a preacher" than do I just say in the book of Romans is says "how will they hear unless someone preaches to them". Is this enough to say your are "called". For me, which I would conclude as a lack of faith, this should be enough but doubt prevails if I ask myself the question: "Are you 100% sure God is asking me to do this?".
Somehow I feel these men I read about, had no doubts about God's voice "calling" them to do this or that. Even in the new testament, Saul was struck down. It was a "without a doubt" moment.
My resolve: I feel like I am displeasing God. I am not sure if it is fair to ask God to make sure I have a "without a doubt moment". What if God doesn't want to do this? Is He not the potter and I am the clay? Does God not have the "right" to do whatever He pleases?
What if it is just my own heart deceiving me so the blindness of my soul can not see correctly. Or, is God saying 'you are not the one', many are called but few are chosen. Is is sin that is blocking me from hearing God. Is is just a spiritual battle and like Danial, Satan is hindering? Or, is it simply a lack of faith. Should I just jump into ministry without really knowing God is calling, except my interpretation of the book of Romans. I could go on and on with questions such as this.
I can't help thinking and asking God: "Lord forgive my unbelief, my shortcomings, my inability to know for sure. Lord, my life is slipping away and I only want to please you. Lord, I am not asking to be famous or great, only in Your eyes. I only want to please You, yet I constantly struggle with the feeling that somehow the problem is within me. This "feeling" makes me think I am not trusting. It makes me feel I lack faith and I don't know how to get faith. Yes I read His word. Yes I pray. Yes, I am active in His work. Yes, I at least think I love him with the best love I know how to give God.
God please forgive my confusion and lack of understanding. God, my only faith is like the man who responded to Jesus...."Lord, I believe, help me with my unbelief"
Struggling Soul desiring to please God.
"Without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God.."

Hi friend. I am going through the same thing right now and I'll I can say is keep praying. Be the better person through all this and don't gloat that you can live without him or are having fun without him. Like I said, i'm going through the same thing too and my friend is showing off how much fun she's having without me and all the fun places she's going. It's not fun but I know God has everything planned out and looks at our thoughts and actions. Also, if you ended the friendship, being a guy, I can say that he won't communicate with you until you communicate first. Hope that helps :) I'll pray with you!
It an amazing place to be on a Thursday night!
Any openings in the High Desert CA??? Jobs here are so few and far between. Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley, etc???
My husband is in need of a job... and with his lack of skills, he only qualifies for labor or something he can be trained in. Sadly, labor is too difficult because of his scoliosis. But we're still hoping for him to get something :] Just in case anyone has any info on where he might find something, please email me at email@example.com
God bless you all!!!
Just wanted to say I am taking the 30 day challenge...listening keeps my focus on God throughout the day, and helps me think less about myself! I see this only being beneficial, so why wouldn't I take the challenge?! ;)
To help relieve some of the financial burden you could look to a pregnancy resource center. They help out with diapers wipes clothes and things like that. I know how much diapers can cost as I have been buying them for 15 years non stop now (I have 6 kids from 15 to 8mos). By doing this you will be saving some money to help put towards the bill. Also look into getting on disability for the month that you are out of work. It might take a month to see the pay but it will help you in the long run. One other thing to think about is remember that God WILL provide.
I think even though we may not admit to it sometimes, a lot of us feel this way. When I feel this way I try to remember this scripture in Acts 17:25, he himself gives life and breath to everything, and he satifies every need. I'm praying the Lord would fill this void of lonliness in your life. That he would bring your hearts desires accourding to his will. The Lord I believe wants us to bring everything to him, even our lonliness and how we feel. God Bless please hang in there, the Lord see's you and he will never leave you, he cares for you and loves you.
thank you very very much for all your prayers, Mr Fehring passed last night.
I thought that might add here.
Even when you have a wedding planner, create a checklist on
the days leading up to the wedding, for items that you have to see through.

day comes to ensure that you feel comfortable. Complete everything on this checklist for ideal success.

My wife and I want to become foster parents. I heard you on the radio this afternoon and as you spoke with such passion for fostering, I teared up. We have been discussing fostering since this past new years when we took a trip to Utah. Our friends there are fostering a 2 month old baby boy and a 5 year old girl who were products of drugged out moms. They warmed our hearts. We didnt quite know how to get started until I heard you on the radio. I myself am adopted and know the impact of having christian adoptive parents here in Las Vegas. I am 44 and my wife is 37. We attend canyon ridge. We feel God is putting us in this direction, since He keeps laying a path before us. Please help us get the ball rolling.
God first and always,

First of all, God is awesome the way he works. My wife and I have been thinking and praying about being foster parents. When I heard you on the radio this afternoon talking about good and bad foster parents, I teared up at work. We have freinds in utah that are foster parents and the kids they have there warmed our hearts. My wife and I have been going to canyon ridge for over two years, it is where we met and got married. we worked with kids ministries for 1 1/2 years. I know we would be great christian foster parents. We are in the process of trying to get all the information we need to get the ball rolling. When I heard you on the radio, you talked with such passion about it. Myself, I am adopted. I know the impact good foster parents can make. I grew up in a christian home here in Las Vegas. We would like to make a difference. Please help us get started.
God first and always,
