12, 2006 - from Scott in Florida:
like knowing that others are reading to. I get anxious
to hear what others have to say. I benefit from hearing
the elders in the group talk about their families and
6 , 2006 - from Chuck in Tampa:
I am so glad to have actually read through this book
[Revelation] for the first time. Although there are
many questions and things to consider, I am thankful
for this DBRAG that helped motivate and bless me in
reading a part of God's word I would normally shy away
from. Thanks guys!"
12, 2005 - from a teenager in Florida:
i go home, and lay on the floor and start crying again
and just begging god to PLEASE take the hurt away when
suddenly I'm like well, I guess i should just do my
DBRAG when i open up 2 corinthians12:9 and it said:
"...(jesus talking) My grace is sufficent for you,
my power is made perfect in your weakness"
It's almost like god was telling me that I needed to
be hurt and i needed to cry because like brandon said
in worship, we have to give up things and things like
that so our worship and praise and salvation means something.
And then how it goes on in verse 10
"......for when I am weak, then I am strong"
I began to feel myself hurting but yet hanging on to
god and thanking him for everything and getting closer
Then, I started [the book of] Job ... and it talks about
how job had EVERYTHING...and then God told satan that
he had control of his liife....yet not to lay a single
finger on him. And it shows how even after all that
happend to him, Job "Fell to the ground in worship".
Job had lost EVERYTHING, and yet he falls and worships
the lord in his hardships because he knows the lord
will make him strong.
I gave up that big thing (and im sure it wasent even
1/23423423423 of what job had lost)....and it was my
choice. Job had no choice in the matter.
That just shows me that god is blessing me more than
i could EVER deserve and how i get these blessings i
still do not know...it blows my mind how crazy go nuts
it is. Anyway, I realize that no matter what hurts me
or comes across my path i give the hurt to god and even
though i still feel pain it slowly goes away as i cling
closer to god and he really shows his stuff in my life."
26th, 2005 - from a teen-age boy in Florida:
"Hey guys that verse was so cool. What
i got out of it was that you can do anything and use
spiritual powers and all that good stuff..but if you
dont have love its all worthless...ok i like to use
examples of things...so picture your favorite car ok...now
you are waxing it and washing it...putting new rims
on it...painting it a different color..you do all these
kool things to trick out your car...but you forget the
one thing that makes something work in a car.....an
ENGINE.....and thats like our gifts...we do all these
things do help others and prepare ourselves for battle
and then we go to war and we fail because we dont have
that love that "ENGINE" within us so it doent
work and thats where i think that a lot of people struggle
is that they think they are ready for battle and they
go out and fail and dont know why..its because of that
..............................ok those were my thoughts...love
you all bye"
