  1. Now that summer is only a few days away for me, I really would like to get some books to read on holiday! I read all the time, but it's usually books recommended by friends that aren't quite my taste. I'd really like to read some good Christian fiction that isn't too cheesy or over the top but still honours God at the same time. Does anyone have any recommendations that they can share?

    Bad friends, and finding new ones

    Similar situation- although I live in a supoosedly very religious city, people my age just don't seem to be acting upon their religion! There are a few, but they're not necessarily my type of person- different interests, different side of the year group etc. so I've never really known them! If it's really bugging you then I guess you could home school? I wish I could but it's not ideal in my family situation, but perhaps it might be for you? Also, don't be afraid to befriend any girls your age at church, I'm sure they'd appreciate you wanting to start a friendship! As for now, CTF might be your best way to connect with other Christians.

    Non-Christian Genre, Christian Meanings

    Literally every twenty one pilots song! They use a ridiculous amount of Christian references in their music!!

    Guitars?

    Been playing for eight years now, mainly play accostic but some electric if I feel like it! I love seagull guitars and I just recently managed to save up for one! I bought an S6 Cedar Concert Hall QIT which is a beautiful model and will play well for a performance I'm doing at school! Perosnally I wanted a Cedar wood to a Spruce as the tone is so much warmer!! I already have a few Spruce so I thought I'd differ a little bit and don't regret it! What's everyone's preferences if you have one?

    I want to leave school

    I understand how you feel! I'm also doing my GCSEs at the en dog this year and being the only Christian in my year group makes me feel isolated at times! People expect you to only ever think about God and to bring Him up all the time and it agitates me greatly when I do not live up to these standards others set for me!! But you can't let this get you down! In need to find a passion in school that makes you want to go! It could be a club, a society or having a leadership role! I found my passion last year for music (I've always loved it but never took it really seriously) and now I have a close group of friends who also participate in the music clubs I am a part of. Remember that at the end of the day, the stress you are feeling now is only short term for a long term of opportunity if you succeed! Pray that God will alleviate some of your stress and instead put all your frustrations into trying your best.

    Teens basic need for Success.

    For me, to put God first is obviously an innate reaction and I would do so without question. But to do anything outside of God? That is also basic human functioning. We have our own goals, aside from the ones God sets us. We can put Him first, but he wants us to regard ourselves also. My school is not a religious one. I attend it, I study hard, I get the grades I want and that isn't a failure. That is just one example out of many. n God is looking out for us, he doesn't automatically put harm in front of those who are lost. He does not put failure into things which do not regard him. He cares for us and wishes to see us thrive. You can't expect Him to do the work for you, you must also try yourself. "Watching for the outcome" is not what is going yo bring you success, hard work and perseverance is.

    We are the light that shines through the darkness

    I can relate- kind of. It's not as if I'm exactly rejected as such, but I do feel isolated in a place where I shouldn't. But reading this reminds me of the hope of God!!

    People at school making me so mad!

    I think you need to be firm but not aggressive, I understand if you have problems controlling your anger and it's great that our principle is helping you with that- but you need to tell her as calmly as you can that you'd like to see a change in people's attitude in class and even perhaps the teacher's discipline! If you are level-headed she will fully understand where you are coming from better instead of facing rage. I really hope the situation improves for you

    So I was wondering favourite songs?

    Don't know if it's your style of music but I adore Mura Masa at the moment

    Please pray for my sister and her boyfriend

    I pray that God will be able to guide him to good health, whether that be through the hospital or through himself. Remind your sister that positive mentality will help her boyfriend as well, the mind is our most powerful tool that God has given us.

    Salvation prayers.

    Thanks, I just really hope he can be strong enough to make his own decisions and choose what God wants him to choose!

    Salvation prayers.

    I'll be praying for all on the list Please pray for my little brother, Archie, he's only ten years old but is easily persuaded by his friends. They are all atheists and belittle him for believing in God. I know he secretly dreads Church every Sunday and I fear we are losing him! Also pray for my friend, Eleanor, who has recently drifted from the church since her mother died.

    Introvert or Extrovert?

    I'm an extrovert for sure! I've spent so much of my life trying to be around others and I get enjoyment from making others happy through things I say or time spent with them. That being said, I also enjoy downtime to myself where I can chill alone, just reading a book or playing some music!

    Hello, new here

    Hi DC, it's lovey to meet you and welcome to CTF

    Battle Scars

    Before you help others (a very kind and generous offer) you must help yourself. Although God teaches that we must care for others (3 John 1:2 for ESV version "Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.") Please look after yourself and look for medical help. Depression is something that can be treated and God would want you to use your resources and seek those who can care for you.

    When will i find my relationship with God?

    For me, the first time I felt a true connection to God was when I needed him most. Before I had been young and non-caring (I only prayed when I was told by my parents and so I often forgot for example). But then when I was ten I needed a set of long and wearing operations and I started praying like crazy. And God did not turn his back on me. My operations went well, and I recovered much quicker than the doctors expected. And after I always felt as though God was watching me. I believe to this day that He sent me a warning sign, I sign that I was taking his love for me for granted and I had very little respect. And now I feel him everywhere. In nature, stuff on the television, even in other people. Don't worry- everyone connects with God at different times in their life and one day you'll find your connection with Him.
