Please say a prayer for my friend
« on: March 28, 2010, 05:13:26 AM »
I'm sorry but I have a friend that comes over to my house and eats all of my food, wears my clothes, steals my things, damages my things, she comes over and whines for hours on end over some guy that doesn't even matter and leaves no room for me to talk when I am crying and she clearly sees it.
I hate to say this, but she is really angering me right now because she is being so annoying and I have to pu up with I everyday stinking day and I am really sick of it.
Gaahhhhhhhh she's talking again about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmm.. Hi Lauren_Elisse :)

I have seen lot of your posts and you seem to have a lot of problems. I hope God helps you with these challenges in life. But we should never moan about these things. If ever you have a problem -- think: the Martyrs have had a greater problem but they never complained -- you are far way more fortunate than the beggars in the streets, you should be thankful! Shift your thoughts to the good -- read the epistle of the day (Palm Sunday Epistle: Phil. 4: 4-9). Hope it inspires you.

BTW. I have a lot of things to be sad about too. I mean.. most of my acquaintances at our university make fun of me, and they think lowly of me. They don't really listen to me most of the time and just laugh every time I talk. But certainly, I feel like I'm one of the luckiest persons in the world! My father allowed me to shift to a course I love and bought me a new (and expensive) laptop! I think these things are a matter of perspective. :)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
(Phil. 4: 4-9)

I think this would be the perfect phrase for every bad day :)

Yes, we must always look t our own faults first, and never complain, but if someone is causing us grief, we should gently and privately have a word with them. btw I'm not pretending that I'm some kind of saint who always does this ;)

The Prayer Forum does not exist as a place for this kind of gossipy whining, so this thread is locked.
