Would be cool.


We have here nice small vineyard.
We are 25kms from Bratislava. Nearest small mountains 10 minutes by car. No ocean.
Would a home by the ocean in Slovakia be very expensive?

Anette,

You started your journey, you are in the honey moon period - the most awesome one (probably).
Now, as I love you and care about you, I would like to tell you to be on guard. Below are some verses from Bible taken from openbible.info site. I do not want to scare you, but it is time for you to know that one is to be on guard. Stick to God, read his Word, take the full armor of God and you should be safe.

1 Peter 5:8 ESV / 163 helpful votes

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

2 Corinthians 11:14 ESV / 108 helpful votes

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

James 4:7 ESV / 103 helpful votes

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Ephesians 6:11-12 ESV / 69 helpful votes

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

John 8:44 ESV / 62 helpful votes

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Revelation 20:10 ESV / 61 helpful votes

And the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

I fear my failure
Not winning
But how can that be when I trust in our Lord?
He is with me, every step of the way
When I`m lost and lonely
He comforts me
Loves me
Guides me.

I am armed with a sword of truth
A shield of love
Because I trust in our Lord.
My demons I will slay
All it takes is time
Arise from the ashes
To fly again, free.

Embracing the darkness.

I embrace the darkness,
Hold it tight.
Lest it consume me.
I fear not, the darkness.
For there is always light.

Even the darkest darkness,
Pales under God.
His light is truth,
Ablaze within my heart.
For there is always light.


I have the love of God,
Deep within my heart.
He guides me and consoles me,
Along this hungry path.
For there is always light.

I know darkness.
I embrace it.
Deep within my heart.
Because that is where God is.
And there is only light.
And love.
For God.



For you, thank you Hana x

It just is.

I cannot, nor will I, explain my belief in God.
It just is.
How do I explain the beauty, wonder and peace I find in God?
Me, who knows nothing but a love and awe for Him.
Why do I believe?
Because I love Him.
And because its like coming home.
Questions still arise,
Deep in my soul,
But I know I am safe.
I love Him.
I want more of Him.

Roses are red,

And violets are blue.

Stop beating yourself up over something you can't control,

And give it to God.

He has a plan for you!

Story, staying away in crisis is the LAST thing you should do. You are in my prayers!

What sort of help - both medical and spiritual - have you sought? This is not a fight you have to make alone!

Story,don't let the devil and demons around you condemn you,when they do,remind them of their future in hell.
Do not let your struggle separate you from God,no matter what.God still loves you and understands your pain and struggles and he accepted you as you are.Just do not stop,seeking God,praying,spending time with God.
If you aren't careful you'll separate yourself from God when you don't need to.
I know somebody who went through the same thing and now they won't drink because they are trying to get somebody else to go to Celebrate Recovery,even gave them a Celebrate Recovery bible that they never even really read,but they have tried to get this person to drink and they won't because this person is telling them to get help like this person did.I hope this makes sense.

We will pray for you and we are here for you the best we can be.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it, a lot.

You`re right, running away from this isn`t going to help. I just feel like I`ve let God down, and myself :(

I have spoken to my doctor, I have an appointment next week so I will see what help I can get. I`m also seeing the Catholic priest again next Thursday so I will see if I can lean on the church too for a while.

I will keep praying.

I have, at least, cut down so there has been some progress.
