How will I know?

I am in the midst of a deeply soul-searching quest for Christian understanding. I am praying as well as I know how, praising and asking for guidance. I am reading the Bible, beginning with the New Testament (I've studied my way up through Romans.)

I am trying to see the moments of my life as being guided and in service of God through the lessons and example of Jesus Christ.

How will I know if I am truly born again in Christ? How will I know of the Spirit is moving within and through me?

An odd aspect of this is that I have been feeling great loneliness as that God-shaped hole within me seems to remain unfilled. Is this normal?

Do I sound desperate enough?

I think all christians struggle with stuff and wonder if they are on the right path or not.

Reading God's Word is excellent therapy!

If you're feeling lonely, maybe your need is to be with other saints (flesh and blood kind!)

And being here too!

Welcome to this site, our goal is to lead you into deeper relationship with Jesus!
