God is the judge. Come to him before you let others tell or lead you to believe he won't accept you. Your journey is a process of learning. We make mistakes, we figure things out. We do better the next time. Before you let someone bring you down go to God for your next move in prayer and review of the scripture passages. It is also good to talk with someone who is knowledgeable (Pastor, Christian Counselor) in the word of God to help you achieve a healthy understanding of how God is intimately involved in your life.
Scriptures to Consider:
John 3:16King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
The Preacher goes into the woman's house, knowing he is permitted because of his moral status in the community but his intentions are far less honorable. He seduces the woman while in her presence. Stating his case for sin in the name of God. She is seduced...finding herself caught up in the throws of his deception. He has lied to his faith, his congregation, his unsuspecting victim...
Waiting On God:
Waiting on God doesn't take long. It takes faith.
If you have any focus, apply it towards focusing on the Lord. Apply your mindset as well as your actions on the Lord. He will sustain you and he will speak and not lie. His promises will surely come to pass in your life.
After You Leave the Prayer Room:
Honesty with God and the encounters you have with people are two very different contexts. It is important to have a filter that will allow you to develop the skills set of being a pleasant person. A person that can connect with someone else rather than just pursuing the emotional release of expression without the consideration of another person. In prayer we bare the full range . . .
