    I could use a hug or something.

    I love my family and it pains me when they fight. Compounded with the little temptations and stressors of life I feel worn down. I often wonder if I am using my gifts as intended. Sometimes I worry that I am not going anywhere in life.

    I could use a hug or something.

    Recharge your batteries a bit by spending some time with God - maybe some worshipful music you like, read the Bible, prayer, go to a good church service.

    If you're worried that you're not serving the Lord well, you probably are doing OK.

    All that, but also find an outlet for your love. Volunteer at a hospital or nursing home or food pantry. God created us to serve.

    I liken it to "scum pond" just up the road. There's a little pond that has several "inputs" (small creeks feed it) but there's no outlet for it. The water just sits there and stagnates. A crust of scum has grown over it.

    I think we can become like that --- we can have LOTS of input, but if there's no outflow, we stagnate. Serve, teach, give...

    Oh, and
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    On the "serving" thing, try several different options. Find the one where you feel that God is blessing you or others (which will bless you ) for being involved. THAT, sir, is worth more than rubies.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    Veritas vos Liberabit<>< Learn Greek <>< Look here for an Orthodox Church in America<><Ancient Faith Radio

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
