Hello, everyone :slight_smile:

I’m from Bay Area, California.

I just turned 21. I’m currently enrolled in a local community college as a Fine Art major, but have been thinking about changing it to something else, or putting my studying to a halt until I figure out what I should do (while working). I desire to understand God more, and to please Him in all I do, I really desire to live for Him correctly, but have been realizing that its easier to say it than do it. I’m at a point where I’ve been relentlessly questioning whether I’m living the Christian life right. I’m confused, and I feel lost.

I found this community through googling a question about a certain speaker, and the responses posted have helped me out.

I’ve watched a handful of Ravi Zacharias videos in the past and even one of his daughter’s, and I’ve followed Nabeel Qureshi’s journey on Youtube. I check Desiringgod daily. Its nice to have a community like this where questions are being thoughtfully answered.

I hope to contribute with thoughtful, biblically sound answers someday, but right now I’ll probably be contributing questions, and I’ll definitely be reading through current and past discussions.

Welcome to Connect, Celese. :smiley: Thanks for joining us here. I can certainly relate on desiring to know and please God, yet struggling while still in the flesh, and I appreciate your humility in sharing. We can rest in the promise of 2 Corinthians 12:9 that Christ’s power is made perfect in our weakness. I look forward to hearing from you on the threads.

Hi @deannefuentes,

Welcome! It will be a gift to have you contribute questions - these spark all of us to learn and grow. As @matthew.western put it recently,

I love RZIM connect because someone says something about a bible passage I’ve never heard before or havnt thought about in that way and I go ‘hang on that doesn’t sound quite right’ and go check it for myself. It has the effect of growing my faith.

I look forward to how your posts help all of us grow in faith!
