Looking for Support | Unaware Curious

“A month ago my parents decided to break up. It made me a little sad but life must go on. Then, all hell broke loose. My grandpa almost lost his leg, then my grandma broke her arm and I was the one taking care of her. I’m feeling so down. I’m not in the mood to do anything. I don’t want to be depressed. Also I’m feeling lonely. Please help me understand what my issue is so I can fix it.”

“I really admire your faith in God. I don’t know many people that believe so strongly. You are a true Christian.”

The Trinity | Unaware Curious

“I am a Muslim. I believe Allah is the absolute one, the all-powerful and all-knowing ruler of the universe, and the creator of everything in existence. I cannot understand why you believe in the Trinity. It does not make sense to me. Would you please explain it to me? Thank you.”

Security in Christ | Follower  Disciple

“I am not sure I really know God. I am unsure of my salvation. I don’t have the abundant life that Christ offers and that saddens me greatly. I have heard talk about the Holy Spirit but I have always had doubts about the Spirit’s manifestation. I hope with the help of the Lord I will be able to walk according to His Word and be guided by His Holy Spirit.”

Perfect Love | Curious Seeking

“I am going through a very difficult period right now. My girlfriend left and I am drowning my sorrows in alcohol. I don’t think I will ever come out of this. I just want to cry. You cannot imagine how much your unconditional love means to me. I am praying to Jesus, the Son of God, who died on the cross for us. Jesus, I need your perfect love from your Father because I am destroying myself. The flame of life, joy, and confidence has gone out in me. I need your love. Help me! I need your salvation.”

Guilt & Forgiveness | New Follower Disciple

“I underwent two abortions during my twenties. I came to know Jesus a few months ago and I have repented from my sins. I know God is loving and forgiving and that all my sins are forgiven thanks to Jesus. I have also forgiven anyone who has sinned against me or who was involved in my sins. Yet, I can’t seem to forgive myself, I really need your prayers.”

“I am continuing to follow the Lord. I am rereading John, and it makes me think of you. You were so helpful at a very critical moment of my faith, and I bless you each day for being there. You are in my heart and in my prayers.”

Growing in Faith | Follower Guide

“God has been helping me immensely to speak with my friends and encourage them as they walk with the Lord. They have been sharing their difficulties with me and with God’s help, I’ve been able to motivate and pray for them. God is using me in ways I never thought He would!”

“I’m glad I’m able to take tiny steps in my spiritual journey with Him. There are still so many areas in my life in which God is working on, and I tend to get easily discouraged. But I’ve been including God in those situations and even in my afflictions I feel at peace when I do that.”

Looking for Answers | Curious Seeking

“I am in the process of moving on from an eight-month relationship and listening to your podcast helped me a lot. I believe that God has something greater in store for me and that He wants me to prepare for it. I realize that I need Him and I cannot conquer this alone. I want a lasting relationship with Him. I want to be fit for God’s purpose, but honestly, I don’t have any idea how. How do I build a habit of putting God first in everything? Where do I start? Are the answers in the Bible? How can I serve Him and be closer to Him? I hope you can help me with this one.”
