    1. Ask God first off all if this is the relationship for you? If so, ask for guidance and balance in the relationship. Be open and honest about your fear of giving the person more time than God and see what he has to say. Read Heather's blog about spending time with God. Please remember that if this man is not your husband to be careful not to give him husband treatment. Read the book Waiting and Dating by Myles Monroe and plesae continue to ask God for guidance.

      Love ya sis!
      Stay encouraged

    1. God bless you and strengthen you in your innermost being. The battle is not yours, it is the Lord's, and because Jesus has overcome the world, so would you through Him. I pray that the Holy Spirit helps your unbelief and strengthens you. He is faithful, sister! He loves you and has you engraved in His Palm. Keep holding on, in Jesus' Name! Amen!

  9. I hear ya to whoever posted above me. Take heart, tough circumstances don't last, but tough people do! God is our strength, He always was, always is and always will be. Take your eyes off of your circumstances and fix your eyes on the One who holds every circumstance in the palm of His mighty hands. I'm going through a very difficult time in my life as well and need many prayers. Every challenging day has brought me another opportunity to learn what it means to surrender and to fall on my knees in prayer. I am lifting you up, my fellow sister in Christ, to the throne of grace, I pray our Father in Heaven gives you His all-encompassing comfort, guidance and peace in all circumstances. 1 Thessalonians 5:16!!

  10. Hello!

    I am born again and determined to do God's will for my life.

    A few years ago, I met a young man who I became fast friends with. Our friendship grew rapidly. I got invited to family events, met his parents and dog, we started spending a lot of time together talking about really deep things and after about two years, we got physically involved. We didn't have sex but things got pretty heavy.

    At this time, i thought he might be interested in a more serious relationship with me given all the feedback i imagined i was getting from him but three years later, he had still not asked me out and infact, he started getting equally close with another mutual friend.

    I decided at that time to talk some hard truths to myself and move on. While i believe that we had a decent friendship going, i didnt believe that he meant to take things any further than it was and so I decided to withdraw from him and stop any kind of physical relationship with him.

    It has been a year since i made that decision and I am now in a relationship with an old friend of mine who I love and has demonstrated an interest in getting married. This new relationship is long distance and we have stayed physically pure as a mark of respect for God.

    However, in recent times, I have recently found myself thinking very strongly about my old crush. I am intensely jealous of his new love interest and can't seem to stop thinking about him whenever I am stressed out at work and in need of physical comfort such as a hug (my new boyfriend lives miles away and not usually available when needed).

    I feel like I am cheating on my boyfriend when I entertain these thoughts and i honestly believe that this is not going to help me in any way. I am unable to talk to friends because I am embarrassed to admit that I am having such thoughts. How can i get over my feelings so that I can move on with a man who I know really adores me and with whom I know I can have a happy and fulfilling future?

    Thank you.

  11. Hello , I am currently struggling with everything in life. My relationship with my bf who constantly send me on an emotional roller coaster , but I love him too much to leave. My relationship with God is weak because I don't keep faith in him and I can't see the plan he has for me. I also struggle with depression and anxiety and nothing helps. I am completely lost when it comes to do with my life , I have no idea what I want to do. And my biggest fear is being alone. All the relationships in my life are toxic and I don't know what to do. I watch your videos and they have for a little while but then my stubbornness kicks in and I have to go back to doing things my way. Any advice ? Please ?

    1. God should come first in our life, the Love you have with your bf is not God's definition of Love. if this is happening in relationship what will then happen in marriage? If you can't let go of that guy you can receive the best from God. Christ should be our satisfaction and a relationship with Christ should be the foundation of our lives. May God strengthen us and remember fear is from the devil not from God.

  12. I came across your YouTube channel by chance and I am glad I opened it and listened,I think I was led there by God ,I was getting discouraged ,frustrated about my faith and my walk with the Lord where I can't keep up my daily Scripture reading,my quite time in the morning was not much I wanted to move on but it felt hard and I was always distracted. Since I listened to your channel I got to know about your blog and I am praying and disciplining myself to honour my time with the Lord. I want to thank you because you have been a great source of inspiration,encouragement and guide to me,thank you so much.

  13. Sorry for the late post/reply.
    @Caitlin Schrader..
    GOD'S love you enough to keep forgiving you because of your resentment, one thing. His Grace is sufficient for you, but he truly can read everything thought you think, every feeling you intentionally & unintentionally have. You genuinely have to over come this fear of being alone. I used to fear being alone honestly..I didn't want to be single( well,now a year later I'm not actually..but I was content(happy&satisfied) with where God had placed me at. I felt like I didn't deserve to be single because for one he easily moved on& I'm here alone stuck!
    ** Myalivechurch.org this is the church I attend in Gainesville,Florida with Pastor Kenneth & Tabatha Claytor
    This is the page for series go through this.. I really would like to watch the series "I'm not afraid" : the storm :death : being alone

    . . Anyways, once you face your fears your able to walk in Faith, whole heartily because you will not be making decisions out of fear!! Never do this.
    Anyone can hmu through my email to talk or questions.. godly living, relationships , life whatever God use me in a mighty way✝��✨
