Ah! I remembered the study, Julie... It is from Navigators Press. They have many studies to choose from, and they are numbered to help you navigate through the Word and develop your faith. Once you get through the first few, Inthink its safe to pick and choose which ones you want to work on next. I hope you can find them!

Love you, too, Darlene! Love ALL of you!!!

Hugs,

Julie, welcome! So glad you are here. Here is a little advice from me. Do you have a Bible and what translation is it? There are so many translations out there and some are easier for new Christians to understand. NLT or NIV are good. KJV to hard for a new Christian to understand. Do you have a church? Find a Bible teaching church. All churches/denominations are not the same. Read Proverbs. It tells you how to live. If it gets to overwhelming, slow down. Baby steps! We have been there. Find a Women's Bible Study. Many mentors there and good fellowship. Women need women to talk to! That's what we do here on the Farm! LoL! The Joy of the Lord is your strength! There's dancing in Heaven over you coming to the Lord. Julie! Know Jesus will never forsake you!

Nini,good advice too! We all have something to offer through the mighty name of Jesus! Love you!

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing,

I have been listening to Joyce Meyer on youtube. I heard her tell the story about the prodigal son for the first time. Oh my goodness, did I ever cry! I have heard people in the past refer to the prodigal son. But I never new what they were talking about. Or another one is that John the Baptist was connected to Jesus. I thought the two were totally two separate stories. I know I must sound really ignorant, but, not for long! Little by little I will get there!

Oops! Hit the wrong button there...

One thing I want to share with you... If you have time, try to chevk out Francis Chan's books and his videos on YouTube. I find him to be a phenomenal man of God with keen insight, understanding, wisdom and desire to live for God and share His love.

And Bible teachers like Ravi Zacharias, Chuck Colson, and my personal favorite, Scott Hahn, will open the Scriptures for you and open your eyes and heart to the depth and breadth of God's love through His Word.

And, of course, we are all here for you. Ask away!

Please do share about yourself! We would love to get to know you better!

Hugs and love,

Nini

Thank you, Nini! It feels good to finally be able to talk. Growing up, you just didn't mention the bible or praying or even God. It was difficult and confusing... to say the least.

Julie, when I became a new Christian there was an awesome study set the guided you with Bible Scriptures. You would have to look uo the Scripture, write it in the workbook, then answer some questions. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the series, but they were very popular, and I believe you can still find them in updated versions at your local Christian bookstores. Also, I highly highly highly recommend you get hold if Integrity Music Scripture Memory Songs. You can purchase them virtually anywhwre, including Amazon or ypu can actually watch many of them on YouTube. They put Scripture to music, making it much eadier to memorize them and recall them in your heart. Whatever the sitiation, I usually hear the somg in my head to immediately remind me of God's promises and love for us. There are so many to choose from. You cant go wrong. SO uplifting! You will learn so much from listening to the great teachers on Christian radio, too. Finally, and MOST important, please read your Bible a little bit every day... Start with the New Testament so you can get to know our Lord and Savior and His love, maercy and will for our lives. His prayers for us will bring you to tears. Then go to the beginning, and start reading in Genesis to learn about God's love, mercy and will, and hiw His plan has unfolded throughout history, leadimg up to Jesus coming to save us. It is beatiful.
Even if you only read a small chapter a night, ypu will be transformed.

We are all here for you, always. As you grow, we, too, grow. And as time goes on, we will surely have lots of recommendations and discussion to help enlighten you and strengthen your faith. I have learned do much here. Mostly I have learned how much God loves us, bevause He has brought all of us together to celebrate together in this little forum. How blessed we are to have each other!

Hello Ladies! I little bit about my background. Oh where do I start...forget about the background!

I am a new Christian as of September 12, 2020!

It is so freeing! To be able to let go of shame, guilt, regrets, and grudges, and everything else that was so negative in my life that was dragging me down. I have a wonderful mentor/guide that is helping me on this journey.

Feeling free to ask about my past if interested. If anyone has recommendations on anything for me, please let me know.

Hi Denise, God is good and keeping me patient when I need it, which is a lot now days but to know he is there with me gives me such peace whether I can walk normally yet or not, I know He is with me all the time.

Nini it is so good to see you on here, I should talk, I need to be on here much more than I am. I just glad to see you on here. I have missed you.

Angie, you can't go wrong with God he is so good for us out there. and cares so much and I feel he is strong on here too. Take care!

Thank you for this post. It is a blessing to be here.

Love

Hello, hello! Oh my goodness. I have not been here in years! Yes! I know! But God's time is not the same as ours is it? I have been reading back through the most recent posts. Faith is a strong thread. Four years ago my husband and I relocated from western NY state to Florida to be close to our son and his growing family. It was hard. For me. when we got here. My darkest time. But God.......I found myself a Christian counselor. A kind man who helped me unravel my fears. I found a church. I began my new life. And have never felt closer to God. Although I am a country girl at heart, and now find myself living in a busy town, I am ever close to God. I look back at those first few months here with a deep compassion for myself and a thankfulness that the time was not wasted. I have learned that in the very midst, in the very dark, His presence is palpable. Much love. Angie

Hi Girls! I'm sorry it has been so long...

Denise! That is wonderful! I actually bought a journal a couple of months ago to do just that, as well as to record answer to prayers, but I haven't had time. I do try to remember to thank God every day, though! I think that a gratitude journal is an especially wonderful way to remind us that God is ultimately in control and how much He truly does love us!

How are you ladies doing?
I started a gratefulness journal over a month ago and it has really helped me to focus on the positive instead of all the negativity these days.

Build up those immune systems ladies! Get sunshine, fresh air, and dig in the dirt!

JT and I have been doing evening devotions together again. I think we both missed it more than we thought.
We were reading in Zephaniah 3:14-17 and marvel that the Lord joys over us with singing! Something to ponder.

Wow it sure has been awhile and oh how life changes! How is everyone doing? I was just thanking God that Kevin had retired last year and there is one case of this nasty virus in his old workplace. Praying it will stay minimal.

Didn't want a year to go by before reviving this thread again.

When JT and I were doing our devotions last night, we came across a verse in Zephaniah 3:17.
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
Isn't that awesome? He will joy over us with singing!

Oh, Sara - that is just beautiful! God bless you!!!

Rae - Because I don't have a lot of time to sit down and read like I used to, I just read it a little at a time. I'm glad I did because there are so many interesting tidbits to take in and ponder. I don't know how to put it, but the explanations of Scripture really helped me feel a little more full spiritually! I'll be looking forward to hearing your thoughts! Enjoy!

In my life, things have been so roller-coaster-y and uncertain. But I've learned just how loved I am - WE are - by God, and I've been blessed to learn to trust Him on a deeper level. A few months ago I was given a rather disconcerting health diagnosis from a doctor, who wanted me to have more tests. When he was done with his spiel, he asked me if I was okay - was I worried or upset? This amazing peace had come over me while he was talking. I just looked at him and said, "I'll be fine! God loves me!" He smiled and said, "Yes, indeed! He does!" And that was that! Wonder of Wonders: I've been fine ever since! :)

One of the reasons I brought this subject up was that while I was recently reading the Old Testament, I was overwhelmed by the laws and proscriptions God had set forth, not to mention the consequences. I said to the Lord, "Lord! My God! I could never live up to any of this! How could anyone remember all these rules and not sin!? And Your Word says that it is no excuse when we don't know we are sinning! How can anyone live under this?" Immediately I heard His still, quiet voice in my heart: "My grace is sufficient for you." I broke down in tears, "You're right, Lord. You're right. Thank you! I love you! I am Yours... I am Yours. Thank You, My God - I am Yours!" Such blessed assurance we have! Our Lord Jesus... THE Gift that keeps on giving! :) Let us Praise Him with every fiber of our being!

Hugs and love -

Nini
