She asked for prayer. Maybe a little advice is needed as well ;)

I recently tried a faith-strengthening exercise, where I didn't watch tv, listen to music, or go on the internet for a week. (For a pastor's or bishops me, this is a very long time.) I read the Bible and prayed more instead. However, during this time, I had a REALLY bad experience. I never thought God didn't exist. I never thought anything in the Bible was false. For some reason, I just felt like I wasn't God's child anymore. It is the single worst feeling I have ever experienced, and something I would never want to feel EVER again. I don't understand why it came during a time when I was trying to strengthen my faith. And since then I have bad feelings once in a while, where I doubt whether I am going to heaven, and I doubt that God accepts me. (its been about a week or two, which doesn't seem long, but considering that all my life the only thing that was certain and without any doubt was God and that I was His, with this feeling its felt like an incredibly LOOOONG time) Its not that I think I am acting wrong, because it doesn't matter what I do as long as I accept Jesus as my savior. But I feel that I don't belong. I am praying hard, and trying to find peace. I would appreciate your prayers, and if you have any advice or personal experience to share, please share.

This be the thread:

Wow, I am not sure what to say. My heart aches for her. :wah: I think that maybe Ann would be best qualified to dish out the advice here!
