its alright. y>:D< things will work out, you can't bring her to God by saying more words. plant the seed, which you have, let HS do his work.
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.
Death by starvation is a terrible thing, Goodsir, continued Stanley.
And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

It's ok we all have mental issues. ;)
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

I said she certainly should think about it. I feel deeply guilty. I should've advocated the gospel more. I feel like....what if that was the o my chance she ever had at coming to Jesus and I ruined it? Also, she tried to kill herself, and only decided not to after I begged to her.

Apart from that, I'm having my own issues. I have bipolar and borderline personality disorder. Both are so severe that it's becoming apparent that I will never be able to have a normal life. It's very, very hard to cope with and it affects my relationships. (Particularly with the aforementioned friend)
I am offering you my talking to her. Tell her it is not worth to kill oneself. I know what I am talking about. She may now go through such a suffering one is to bear only hardly, but sun will rise again.

Pm me any time.

MCF,
God says he blinds the eyes of the unbeliever. Those who do not believe, God does not let them understand the truth. Jesus said there are only two types of people, Wheat, and Tares. The Tares are the unbelievers. We are to seek out the Wheat, not the Tares. You can not change a Tare...you can not un-do what God has done.

Ech, I know that problem. My girlfriend is atheist. I don't know if we will be together. She don't want a wedding in church and another things which are similiar God. But... sometimes I give her some books about my religion. When she was so young she was a Christian. And books shows her past. Maybe she return to this. I hope that...
