    I am lost, and I have sinned a lot, also am not happy with my self. I want to believe in god and have faith in him too.

    Start by reading about the life of Jesus Christ in the Bible books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Find out how he viewed life, his relationship with others and his Father and the world around him. Take encouragement from his words at Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.”

  3. Toya says:

    I am in a relationship that I am afraid to get out of. I am tired of all the things he has put me through. Where should I go to get freedom from this person?

  4. Jonathan says:

    If you are afraid to get out of this relationship because he may hurt you physically then this becomes a legal matter. If you life is in danger or if it will be once you leave you should seek legal and professional help.
