Hello Sher
So glad to have you here. Do you and your husband walk together? I short and my love is tall with long legs, so needless to say he golf's and I walk on my own.
I look forward to getting to know you.
There are so many wonderful Christian groups to go to. Great prayer!
Be encouraged in this walk we walk. We are a big family here.
If there is anything you need, just give me a toot!

Tamra, How is your reading going?
Sorry I haven't been back here for a little.
Today we give thanks for everthing we are going through---good or bad. God will make a way for each one of us. He is Faithful. Those aren't just words, they are His promises. He promises never to leave us or forsake us. Isn't that awesome? It is so wonderful that we don't have to be the smartest people in the world to grasp His love. As little children we come to Him. I am so glad for that.
Be encouraged today.
Love to you all

TAMRABELLE - I hope your ear infection clears up soon, those can be very painful indeed. Good luck with midterms, too.

The Christian Motorcyclist Association always recommends the book of John followed by Psalms and Proverbs. You learn a lot about God's love right from the beginning.

I'd heard that the book of John is a good place to start as well, and I just love Psalm and Proverbs personally. But some friends of mine started with the new testament because they feel it's more relevant to our lives today. Wherever you choose to start, it will be a blessing.

I have always heard that the book of John was a very good place to start. It is wonderful to also read in the book of Psalms to see how David worshiped God.
I hope this helps.
Have a wonderful time in His Word.

WOW!!! Looks like a lot of support on here! How great that is....I was wondering if any of you have some advice on where to start reading in the bible...its a debate with us...my husaband wants to start at the begining and read with the 2 year plan in our bibles...it bounces around a little bit...but once when we attended an alpha group(at our church for newbies) some people talked about starting somewhere else...I forget where they said....My problem is the begining isnt capturing my attention and I dont get how it comes together...some ppl suggested finding some where that relates to our lives and stuff....just would like to read something that relates to MY life....any suggestions???

Welcome to the group, TAMRABELLE! It's always a blessing to "meet" other believers. It's really wonderful that you and your husband are reading the Bible together and hopefully growing in the Lord together. God bless you both! emoticon emoticon

Hello Tamra, my name is Celeste. I have been here since last Feb.
Praise the Lord for your salvation and for leading you here.
Are you attending a local church where you can be fed?
It is so wonderful that you and your husband are in the Word together.
We have many sites here that offer prayer for your requests and also scipture and daily devotions.
Let me pray for you.
Father, thank you so much for bringing Tamra here. Lord I ask that you would direct her steps as she sets out and this journey. Give her wisdom in her daily decisions and strengthen her as she exercises. Lord I ask that you would give her a desire to eat more wisely and also a thirst for water. Thank you that we can come to you with everything. Father, please give her and her husband a hunry for Your Word. Reveal Yourself to them everyday and increase their faith to believe on You for their every need. Your grace is so unbelievable yet so real. Thank You for adding them to this wonderful family, for bringing them into the fold. You are the Great Shepard and we are your flock. Praise and honor are Yours now and forever! Father, as it says in Proverbs 3;6 in all thy ways acknowledge HIm, and He shall direct thy path, we boldly acknowledge You. Thank you, once again Father. All these things I pray in the Wonderful, precious name that is above all names, Jesus.
Much love sent your way,
Celeste

Hi!
I have been on sparkpeople on and off for almost a year and now want to join some teams for help during the hard times, we'll see but I think it will be a good thing, if I dont lose as much weight as I would like, hopefully I will gain some friends!!! I am also learning to grow with God and have been trying to read the bible(for the first time) with my husband. During the past few years I have changed a lot of my thinking and would like to understand more about faith and God. Any advice on losing weight or growing in faith....please let me know!!! Thanks!
