American arm of Anglicanism and it's gone just to complete shit.

2018-03-06 03:13:29 UTC  

Honestly the more I see from prots the more I get angered

2018-03-06 03:49:08 UTC  

*me after I consume degenerate content*

2018-03-06 05:35:48 UTC  

any orthodox bros here

2018-03-06 06:16:59 UTC  

Well folks. Starting today, I'm fasting. Won't be consuming jack shit except water and a few crackers in the evening. Doing this for a month.

2018-03-06 06:21:49 UTC  

That's really intense, are you sure that's healthy?

2018-03-06 06:22:08 UTC  

Fasting for a day or two is one thing

2018-03-06 06:29:10 UTC  

So long as you know what the hell you're doing it's fine. Just make sure to get the proper amount of nutrients and don't do shit which exceeds the caloric intake.

2018-03-06 06:29:15 UTC  

Temptation will be a bitch.

2018-03-06 06:29:31 UTC  

If you can manage a prayer, anyone, I'd appreciate it.

2018-03-06 06:32:29 UTC  

@Thomas I'll pray for you

2018-03-06 06:32:41 UTC  

Much obliged.

2018-03-06 06:32:44 UTC  

I know fasting is tough

2018-03-06 06:32:59 UTC  

But it's really healthy both spiritually and mentally

2018-03-06 06:33:10 UTC  

Still waiting to see where I'm supposed to be going in this wheel well that is my anti-climactic life.

2018-03-06 06:33:36 UTC  

Hopefully refrain from something as basic as food will clear my head.

2018-03-06 06:34:37 UTC  

I'll ask God to give you guidance and discerning

2018-03-06 06:35:02 UTC  

You're a good man @Thomas , you're going to make it

2018-03-06 06:35:09 UTC  

I've been asking that for about two weeks now along with forgiveness.

2018-03-06 06:35:17 UTC  

Seems like it's been falling on deaf ears.

2018-03-06 06:35:22 UTC  

My faith is never weakened

2018-03-06 06:35:31 UTC  

as my logical assumption is that God exists.

2018-03-06 06:35:44 UTC  

It doesn't make sense (the universe, everything) without intelligent design to me.

2018-03-06 06:36:35 UTC  

But it seems like no matter how hard I try, and pray, never really lines up. I know he's there, I damn well do.

2018-03-06 06:36:49 UTC  

He's worked miracles all around me, not necessarily to me,

2018-03-06 06:36:56 UTC  

but everywhere that I can see.

2018-03-06 06:36:59 UTC  

I feel him.

2018-03-06 06:37:05 UTC  

But I hear nothing.

2018-03-06 06:38:12 UTC  

God is good, and God is God. He has his own ways of doing things that we can't comprehend because his ways are not out ways.

2018-03-06 06:38:28 UTC  

I'm well aware. That's partly what worries me somewhat.

2018-03-06 06:38:38 UTC  

In the same way that God destined his own son to die,

2018-03-06 06:39:01 UTC  

I believe that similar misfortunes may befall peoples across the world to benefit man in the longterm.

2018-03-06 06:39:11 UTC  

However he might have his way

2018-03-06 06:39:16 UTC  

*Thy will be done.*

2018-03-06 06:40:59 UTC  

I have no way of knowing what's going on in your life specifically, so I can't give a satisfying response, but I will say this: you're right his will be done, and we don't understand it or know how it'll work out in the end, and it's terrifying sometimes.

2018-03-06 06:41:32 UTC  

The mystery of God and his ways is part of why we should have a healthy fear of God

2018-03-06 06:41:53 UTC  

You never need to give a satisfying response, Simon, I don't mean to frustrate you. You tell me exactly what I need to hear. You're kind and genuine.

2018-03-06 06:42:30 UTC  

The fact that you give response at all says something.

2018-03-06 06:42:35 UTC  


2018-03-06 06:42:39 UTC  

God love you.
