I was never brought up around much religion. I was baptized, but that was the extent of it. I am now in my 30's, wanting to learn more. I am in a "life w/ God" class, discuss it at home w/SO, and am reading a book on trying to understand the bible and what it means. I am struggling. I can't get past some doubt, my mind isn't opening up to some of this, and I am scared to death because I (like all of us) have sinned, living in sin(not married). I would like my 3 children to start some spiritual learning, but if I can't get this, how am I going to help them. (and my ex doesn't want them going to the church am I going to become a member of). But i feel guilty even asking to be confirmed after this class because of my doubts. I am losing a lot of sleep over this. Help!Answer Question

consider your self blessed and "lucky" for where you are at this moment in life, where very few humble themselves in such a way to recognize that they need God in their lives,they don't appreciate the blessings of this opportunity, to come to the Father and ask for forgiveness-which he's more than willing to do for us,at the same time a new beginning!. what you need to do is just PRAY! to our heavenly father for WISDOM ,His word promises that if we need wisdom in understanding something He will give it to us! and I know he will do the same for you... MAY HE BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU!

If you feel stressed out this may not be the Church or denomination for you. Write it all down and pray about it. You should feel joy, not doubt and fear. You really should have the sensation of "coming home" not what you are feeling now. Faith is a journey and it is soul seeking. I hope you find the place that makes you feel like you have come home after your journey of seeking out your path. Have no fear, no guilt only knowledge seeking joy.
