    Praying for you, Dread.

    I don't think that's ever established, really, and is left up to interpretation. It couldn't be that bad, though, if the Pokemon Centres can heal your Pokemon so quickly.

    I'm honestly not sure you need to lie. At all. In fact, I seriously argue against it, especially given the Scriptural admonitions to honesty.

    Can you explain what sort of things seem to show lying as a necessity? I am having doubts that Chick-fil-A is an employer that would pressure its employees to lie about something.

    It's not Chick-fil-A that's pressuring me to lie. It's the business world in general. For example, during an interview, you'll be asked, "What is your greatest weakness?" My honest answer would be my lack of experience, because I've never had a job. I can turn that into a positive by emphasizing my willingness to learn and acquire the skills and experience needed for the job and then some. And I wouldn't be lying by emphasizing that willingness. The lie would be "I wasn't always organized." However, it's not an entire lie. I am slightly disorganized, always have been. Am I more organized today than I was a decade ago? Absolutely. But I'm still disorganized. And I see the bending of that truth to still be a lie.

    My girlfriend's helped me out a lot today by going through mock interviews with me, and she gave me a pep talk a few minutes ago. My confidence is higher than it was yesterday, and my stress levels are lower. But I'm still nervous.

    EDIT: I just got back from the interview, and I did really well. I didn't have a nervous breakdown in the middle, and, compared to the rest of the applicants, I stand a good chance of getting the job. They'll call me on Friday and let me know.

    Haven't heard from Chick-fil-A at all. I'm going to call them tomorrow after VBS.

    However, my girlfriend got saved today! She's been coming with me to my church for a few weeks now and has been saying that she realizes she was a Christian, only one of the mouth. Last night while we were talking on Skype, she said that she seriously hopes that God calls on her soon. And that's exactly what happened today! She said at lunch that she feels a lot happier than she has in years. I'm so happy for her.

    I know I'm not as active a member in this club as I used to be, but this just makes me really happy to hear. There was definitely some rejoicing going on in the heavenlies. And I'm sure you were an excellent role model in your faith to guide her. Congrats, man! God is good.

    Great to hear, Dread! :D
    Hopefully you'll have gotten that job, as well.

    I called Chick-fil-A this afternoon, and they said that they've had to temporarily slow down on their hiring process. A call was supposed to have gone out to all of the recent applicants, but I didn't get it. The manager I spoke with said they'll resume hiring early next month, and will let me know some time next week.

    At least it's not a no. Continuing to pray for you.

    Well folks, I know I have been away for a while, but I thought I'd say hey! In light of recent events, please keep the friends and relatives of Malaysian flight MH17 in your prayers. Also remember to pray for the friends and family of innocent people who have lost their lives during the conflict between Israel and Hamas. Furthermore, pray that God would use these events to bring people to salvation.

    I have a prayer request: Please pray for all persecuted Christians in the Middle East right now. As you may know, Muslims have been attacking them, and those who do not convert are forced to either pay a fine or flee their homes. Please pray that this will end.

    How about we pray that the Muslims persecuting them would know Christ? I think that's a better one.

    Praying for both would be best. I've just been praying that they have perseverance through trials, and that God will protect them. In the end, everything is in God's hands.

    Can I be put on the member list? I have been recently trying to become more religious lately. I was raised Catholic but I haven't been practicing as frequently I figured this forum could help me exercise my relationship with God.
