I was curly haired like mad and looked like a boy. So that's not good.
At least you had hair - I was dead cute but bald :eek:

Someone once explained to me their beliefs on speaking in tongues which I found very persuasive - that the way it happens now, with people speaking nonsense, isn't what the Bible means. It says that they spoke languages that they had no previous knowledge of. So if you were at a church service in English with someone who spoke only Tamil, for example, you could be given the miraculous gift of tongues by which you could translate the words into Tamil, a language of which you had no prior knowledge.

Not everyone thinks of tongues this way and I don't want to declare that those who speak in tongues in services aren't being sincere but I favour this interpretation personally

I agree as this is what happened at Pentecost as in Acts 2

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.”

The apostles spoke in languages as the Holy Spirit gave them.

But I also feel we are given a voice, akin to a heavenly language which we can worship God using, praying, singing in. Its just our communication with God.

I think that the work of the Holy Spirit is to connect us to God, to open our hearts and eyes to him and is available and given to us all

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Then of course we have the fruits of the spirit and our talents to use to glorify God.

Please dont judge me on this as I know it is wrong and I realise that I should not be doing it but it is something that I am struggling with and cannot seem to get rid of, I manage for a few days or weeks without doing it and then flip out and do it again and usually it’s out of boredom or being in my room with the curtains closed and my mum and dad going out.

I have spoken to God about it tonight and read my scriptures after realising what I was doing tonight was wrong and desperately needed to stop, I asked myself ‘what are you doing you know this is wrong’ and I stopped but I’m worried that I don’t know how to stop or how to stop it happening again.

This is my problem, masturbation, I cannot stop, I live in a non Christian home so my family don’t mind so much about the problem that I’m having they say it’s normal and it’s allowed, the thing is is that I don’t find it normal or allowed it stresses me so much and makes me feel so unhappy to know that i’ve done this and even though I’ve repented and asked God to forgive me I still feel bad. I was never like this in high school or college

Can anyone help me without judging me?

Thanks

Anyone struggling with their faith? Hopefully this will encourage someone today who is feeling alone and unable to touch God's hand which is reaching down to you.

God knows we will at times have dips in our walk with him due to the pressures of life and this world we live in.

He says there is a way to be an over comer in this life and that is to feed yourself with the message of hope (the bible) and to be continually renewing our minds in him. We need to get rid of the wrong thoughts and just the stuff that fills our thinking, blocking communion with God.

As the bible says in Romans 10 v 17

"Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ".

Sometimes we need to force ourselves to go to church because God says we should, it can be hard for some but life will be a lot harder if we don't go and be constantly refilled with God's hope and love for us.

Go to church today and meet with God. Spend time in his presence and hear a really good uplifting bit of preaching that will resonate with your spirit.

God bless you this Sunday

I love the first song, everyone needs forgiveness, the kindness of a Saviour. Our God is mighty to save, the author of salvation who conquered the grave.

"Take me as you find me, all my fears and failures, fill my life again"....

This link gives 100 worship songs that you could have playing out today in the background and even possibly sing along to .
