    I'm a conservative southern Baptist and a former youth pastor. I currently teach a singles Sunday school class and am married to a wonderful wife of 12 years (2nd marriage.) I am not as consistent in my daily walk with God as I would like to be and though I'm sure we could all say that what I mean by that is that some days I just seem to go through the motions. Anyways I am excited to find this site because I am hoping for some good Christian growth discussion. Funny isn't it that church doesn't really seem the place for that to occur or maybe it's just me?

    No it's NOT just you but reality.
    The internet is faceless thus might promote more honest discussion.
    Or a load of crap from fakers.
    Let the reader beware.

    No doubt about that as it can be easy to be taken for a ride. I remember when chat rooms were the thing back in the AOL dial up days! And for sure some folks just get to be whoever they want to be online. In fact there is a country sound about some guy being taller, and cuter online than he is in person. So yeah I'm sure it would be easy here to believe you were ministering to a person or people when in actuality all you were doing was just feeding their loneliness or some twisted fantasy life.

    Now the discussion that I'm searching for is based on what God is doing in your life. Yes I also like discussing Bible verses but it's the application that gets my blood pumping. I mean we read about some Old Testament prophet doing some mighty act some 3500 years ago and I'm like that's really great so now God what does that really mean to me and it does mean something. Sometimes He just lets me know that He's all powerful but sometimes He goes further and I feel that He is letting me know about His care of a specific need or problem in my life or the life of someone near to me.

    Anyway what can we do but plant and water and pray for God to cause the growth.

    Hello, my names is James, my friends call me Jim. I'm a very private person have been all my life. I am 42 yrs. Old. I am married to Angela for about 18 yrs. I have three kids youngest to oldest 11,15,18. I used to be a truck driver for 16 yrs. I got hurt by a man operating a front end loader my L1 to L5 discs are nearly crushed this happened back in 2014. I don't like to make it like a "Whoa with me, pitty party" asked anyone who really knows me. But I am struggling with a lot of things right now. To just give the basics here. I would so humbly asked you prayers warriors out there to pray for me, and my family. As mentioned my back, I can barely move around Im pretty much stuck in the house 24/7, I want to go back to work (not as a trucker they took my CDL because I couldn't pass the DOT physical), my wife resents me and avoids me like the plague (her words are "I can't love you like you want me to"). I honestly have no one to talk to other than my 11 yr old son and that's only so much I can talk to. All I am I is that I am alone with my thoughts. I don't drink, I don't do drugs NEVER, EVER. My problems go even deeper than what I am trying to explain if I did I would be writing a novel here. All I'm asking for is this, I need prayers please. I need prayers that God will make a huge change in my life, and if he wills it to save my marriage ( I really miss the woman I fell in love with.) She keeps telling me that there is not problems but her attitude says different. I just need God to take control of my life because I am battled worn. Just please pray and Thank you. God bless. Also I live in Malakoff Tx,

    Hi Jim,

    Sorry you got hurt. Have asked God to refresh you, meet your needs and encourage you.

    What is being done to help your lower back heal and/or strengthen?

    Hi, Jim. I understand the spine issues. Had spinal injections early this year.

    Feel free to talk here.

    Mr.Willy to answer your question as of right now in October I am to go to Dallas Tx, to receive injections and see a specialist but.....due to the fact that when I made the appointment (a year and a half ago) due to a waiting list I now not longer have insurance. We are down to one income (wife) and she hardly makes enough and I have applied disability and was turned down twice, my hearing is coming up in November. I've applied for insurance from ACA (Obamacare) but my information got lots twice and I was rejected because I couldn't pay/meet their premium. Thanks your form your prayers all. I was searching for answers and this forum really stuck out, all other sites were lagging to load and this one did not. I think God was telling me "Hey no you doofus go here."

    They helped me a ton. Of couse, they do not fix the damage, but help with the pain and allow you to do a lot of things again.
