Re: Need greatly to vent

Thank you Bridget. I have been debating for awhile now attending another church at least just to see what it is like. I could see that being a benefit to me. I think I will always worry about the dissapointment I might cause to others, but anxiety is my middle name!

Need greatly to vent

Let me preface by saying this is a pity party, I know it. Logically I know it is, I know others should not govern how I feel, that people do not equal church etc. I am just so tired of trying, of repeating all of the logical, but never having it sink in to the emotional. You always hear people say h...

Re: Why do I fight it?

Your right heber, thank you for the advice. I think my husband would love me still but I know he would be dissapointed. Your right in saying it will resurface later, even if I keep pushing it aside. Thinking about what I have said in this thread, I keep saying I want this because it is easier, I wan...

Re: Why do I fight it?

I am a people pleaser, and I feel like I am letting my husband down if I am not at least trying to see for myself if the church is true. It would be nice to take a break, try something else on for a while. I feel a sense of obligation pulling me toward Mormonism, and I find myself just wishing I cou...

Re: Why do I fight it?

Thank you for all of the replies and great advice. I read the scriptures today. I don't think I will ever believe like a TBM, but I have never read the BOM all the way through, and therefore I do not know to what extent it is, if at all true. I have always had a hard time reading scriptures, but tod...

Why do I fight it?

It seemed liked when I decided to be less orthodox I was more open to starting a relationship with God, looking forward to it even. I have always had a repulsion to the idea, I use to think it was because I didn't feel good enough. Now I don't know what it is, but I don't want to know him, or talk t...

Re: How much of the church is true

My answer is honestly none of the above. At this point in my life it is a huge question mark. I feel I do not know enough to say what is 100% true. To be honest I am not sure I ever will. There are few things I do not question, a few things that I know were the spirit guiding me, or some sort of spi...

Re: Prayer

This totally makes sense, and I've had similar thoughts. The way I see it, prayer doesn't change God's will. Like you say, he's going to do what he's going to do. But I think prayer has more of an effect on us. There's a line from the film 'Shadowlands' about CS Lewis where he says something to the...

Re: Prayer

Just thought I would add, I do pray for my mom. I pray she will be fine, that she will be comforted, and I give thanks for having her in my life. It just feels fruitless to me, but I do it anyways. I would do anything to help my mom!

Prayer

Calling on your infinite wisdom yet again! My mom had been dx with cancer. My mom has been pretty positive about everything, but wants me to pray for her. I have always had a hard time praying. For one I feel like I am "talking" to myself. Also I think I over think things. For example I will pray th...
