Anyway, before my love for Christ grew, I didn't know where I was going. Now since I've studied the Word and found that it is true, I feel like I have a higher purpose. I worked at a homeless shelter and found out that there are people in life that REALLY need our help. I feel like you don't feel appreciated plainoleme. To me, even one person's smile at the shelter was enough for me to continue service. People would come up to me and give me their testimony out of nowhere. It made me love God that much more.

    Do you pray before you start reading the bible? Some people can read the bible all the way through and not get anything out of it. "Hearing they hear not, seeing they see not." IF this were the case for you then prayer could help remove the veil from your eyes. I don't want to make assumptions though. You see, I think people would agree with me in saying that when you have a strong relationship with the Lord, His love will grow inside of you. That relationship can only come through prayer, studying the Word, and fellowship.

    For some reason, I feel like your job is the biggest factor in the way you feel. Have you shared this testimony with other Christians in your church? I'm 100% sure someone else has been through what you are going through. "There is nothing new under the sun."
    Ask yourself, are you doing everything you do because you want to live up to man's standards (getting a master's degree) or are you doing it to please God? I think people would agree with me, that the latter is more fulfilling.
    Sometimes you have to give up your feeling of control and give it to God. That's how trust grows.
    I always admire and appreciate the heart of your posts, I hope my responses don't come off as callous. I know I've been told that but rather I just see things sans emotions.

    I know I have a higher purpose, I'm not sure what it is yet. But I understand and believe that a God who knew me before birth created me on purpose for a purpose and wants me to live with purpose. That's partially how I continue on. I will never be presumptuous enough to say I am as close to God as I need be however when people ask me about my works I share what I do to paint a picture. Again I hope that is never misconstrued as me gloating, I understand that there is no sacrifice I make equal to the one Christ gave. I pray, I fast, study, serve my church, etc.. I try to pray before & after reading my word, admittedly I fall short at being consistent in my prayers

    Like you I'm a single, college student. I actually had a period where my listlessness resulted in my unemployment (Oct 2013-Jan2014). I have never desired to live up to anyone's standards but rather I just follow the rules. And yes I realize everyone says follow your heart or seek God's heart. But again those attempts have been fruitless as I cannot identify either. My motivation for being moral, godly, productive is logic there's no true relationship in any area of my life. I dont want to go to hell so I commit myself to God attempt to serve him & worship him. I recognize his death & ressurection as what makes sense as a commitment that id be prudent to keep. I work and go to school because I'm good at what I do and it blesses people. Additionally, it makes economic sense as one day I will prolly have a fam or kids and a wise man gets his house in order & saves up an inheritance for them. I've been extremely diligent in that regrad. Nonetheless money, degrees mean nothing to me. Which ultimately leads to meaningless works.

    On the subject of work I've in the human services field since inception outside of my joblessness period, I serve and I get props for high quality works. Doing good brings me no joy, I still do it nonethless because doing good is still good even if it brings me no joy. It has always bothered me that I get no joy from seeing salvation at work or evening blessing others, as my family can attest I am good at being perceived as genuinely generous and affable. However internally being charitable and serving is a routine act no difference than brushing one's teeth.

    Sounds like you are just going through the motions. When I was depressed I felt the same way man (you don't have to be to feel the way you do). I'm no therapist but I always feel there is a root cause for these things.
    I gotta go but we'll talk more.

    Then you know what you are going through could be caused by relationships or by physiological reasons.
    Maybe you could trace it to an event in your life. How long this been going on? Were you the one that said they didn't want to get involved in relationships with people (women) at church?
    Or you didn't want a family?
    All I can say is that God has provided the means to overcome this....through people in your industry. My mistake was expecting a miracle when God's provision was already there. You should probably talk to someone before it gets worse or you make a bad move. I know personally... If you don't want to spell out the details here you can pm me. You chose your screen name because of this? It kind of makes sense.

    I agree God HAS made earthly provision but rather not ALL earthly provision will solve ALLearthly problems. Again that's not to say I lack belief/faith but rather ive experienced a lack of success through earthly means, which is why I asked for prayer. Much like Paul's thorn I agree His grace is sufficient. I consider it good to say I can serve God, serve others, serve my church all while suffering.

    Philippians 1:29
    For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

    I'm definitely praying for you. People were praying for me when I was deep in depression. Who knows? This might be part of your testimony and one day you'll be able to help someone going through the same thing.

    Default wholesale sunglasses oakley replica meikq

    The best replica Oakleys are popular and fashionable. The original Oakleys have the distinctive 'O' for Oakley on the arms of the glasses. Without this trademark, you can be sure that the pair you possess is not genuine Oakley. Like a lot of other expensive sunglasses, Men's Oakley sunglasses are often replicated and sold in markets all over the world. Replica or fake Oakleys are frequently referred to as 'Foakleys' or even 'Joke-leys'. Discount Oakley Sunglasses Now, whatever your needs may be with sunglasses, be it for protection of your eyes, your health, your style or simply your comfort while being on vacation in a warm country, you cannot get a better deal than with Oakley sunglasses for women. These are beautiful, functional and really durable so you can get a pair of those and never worry again! Polarized lenses may also reduce the visibility of images produced by liquid crystal displays (LCDs). This could be an issue as there is an increase in LCD's being utilized for car dashboard readouts, digital screens on automatic teller machines (ATM's), cell phones, and GPS devices. Pilots also have reported similar issues when viewing LCD's on aircraft instrument panels, which can be a crucial issue.

    Should you decide to buy brand new sunglasses, bear in mind to be aware the warranty information and receipt that comes with the items. Without the receipt, you will be ineligible for warranty coverage. It is usually safer to deal with real online stores instead of people if you plan to purchase a brand new pair so the warranty and receipt will probably be securely brought to you. Oakley Sunglasses Sale Titanium frames are extremely durable and long lasting, due to this they are becoming increasingly popular and are particularly suitable for use whilst playing sports. In 1975, Jim Jannard pronounced "Everything in the world can and will be made better", to an unimpressed marketplace with just $300 in his pocket. He set out with a determination and conviction to stand out from the crowd in an industry already overflowing with successful goliath corporations, and succeeded excellently.

    Examine these pictures carefully and contrast them to the sunglasses you are going to purchase on-line. Black Friday The difference in the prices of retail sunglasses and cheap Oakley sunglasses available online does not mean that online buyers are getting a lower quality product. Buying from an online store is therefore a brilliant idea. Industry standard polarized filters are required to be fitted in a frame so the polarization plane does not deviate from the horizontal plane by greater than five degrees. The difference between the left and right eye polarization filters cannot deviate more than six degrees. (This means that each eye could be seeing vastly different orientations of an object, causing your brain to work extra to make sense of the object).

    Oakley sunglasses are a high quality American product that started out as BMX bike grips in the late 70's to mid 80's, before Oakley made their first pair or sunglasses. And then they exploded. And with their immense popularity came the wave of counterfeits, flooding the market, trying to meet the demands of the public and capitalizing on the popularity of the sunglasses. So knowing that there is an ocean of phony glasses out there, how can you tell the real from the fake? Fake Oakleys With the development of baseball sunglasses, you hardly ever see the professional players with black streaks under their eyes to reduce the glare. The polarized lenses help neutralize the glare of the light. With amber sunglasses for baseball and the different colors of the lenses, the tint helps to enhance the color of the ball as it flies through the air. This lets the baseball players look directly into the sun and still see where the ball is. If you are unable to see and hold the Oakley's before you purchase, here are some further characteristics, which you would do well to consider. Do not look at the logo on the bridge of the nose as a decisive factor in genuineness. Fake Eye Jackets have the same branded markings on the nose of the frame as those of originals.

    The sunglasses available for men come in a wide range of colors and styles. Whether you want classic black sunglasses or something more colorful, you'll find plenty to choose from. Replica Oakley Sunglasses As you may again have guessed, Oakley polarized filters are aligned within 2 degrees from the horizontal plane and are nearly identical left to right. This translates to a reduction of eye strain and brain power to make sense of the images seen in the right and left eyes. Maybe that's why people often get headaches from wearing those cheap sunglasses. Polarized sun shades give you one of the best safety in addition to anti-glare capability so you observe clearly. You can also pick a kind that suits your current dynamic way of living wholly. Summer season or not, you actually have to have something that may protect the future health of your eye sight outdoors.

    Though the sunglass manufacturers itself are offering discounts, the fashion lovers can get extra discounts from select places. Most of the best deals for the designer sunglasses can be found in the online stores. Cheap Oakley Sunglasses Generally, a genuine quality pair of Oakley sunglasses are always paired with a recognized optician so if you need specialist sunglasses, you can easily get the much needed prescription that matches with your fashion and style without compromising on your eyes. Resurrecting the Oakley Frogskins black in their limited edition is making it possible for the public to again wear a pair of history. While they are allowing the consumer to own a pair of the classic retro designs the opportunity will not remain forever open, take advantage of this incredible piece of fashion wear while the supplies last.
