aw
well
i think you just need to arrange some transport to get to the club, if a member can pick you up on the way, or get an uber, and pay for it yourself or give a gift to the driver

if its just once a month it shouldnt be a big deal and provided its not too far away
not sure how public transport is in your area, but dont let it be too much of a barrier for enjoying your life.

suburbia can be isolating for those without wheels. I recall one time took some kids out to the library for an outing. They had NEVER been outside of their own suburb before. The only places they would have gone, aside from school is with their parents to visit relatives or perhaps to the supermarket.
I live out in the country and my closest neighbor is a 1/4 mile away from me.

Dude I'm sorry. I must say that the way you write, I never would have guessed that you had a learning disability.
I have mentioned the fact, numerous times on this website that my learning disability does not effect my writing skills.

In fact I talked about it in my very first introduction post, way back when I first joined this site.
Yeah... umm... sorry. I don't read every single post from every single user. Do you have time for that? Wish I did. I was only trying to encourage you. The Bible tells us to do that.

I'll be sure to be more careful next time.

You come into these forums complaining a lot about how your life lacks this or that, how lonely you are and how discouraged you are. If you can express discouragement on the 'net, why can you not read encouragement from it?

I have resonated with much of what I've read from you in the past. I have tried to show you that you are not the only one, and I've tried to be an encouraging brother. If you're going to slap people down for trying to help in the only way that they can, then maybe this is one reason you're alone. Not the only reason, I admit, but a contributing factor for sure.

But, be encouraged! Ha ha. I will never make such an attempt again. Complain away my brother! Go nuts. And, I'll make every effort to ignore it :)

I am sorry, I just never found your responses to be very encouraging. But rather it seems more like you are telling me what to do.

SC, I see you have suggested you have OCD, have you ever been tested for ASD? The seemingly unwarranted terseness in some of your responses might eminate from that. I'm not aiming to put you down in any way, but am trying to understand you better. That helps us not to be put off by what seems like rude responses from yourself, and still engage with you. The vast majority of people here are only trying to reach out to you and help, they are not out to malign you. Shalom 🙂

I think the countries are England, Aus, Japan and India. I didnt hear about the Phillipines??

Voting is compulsory here or we are fined. I think it is great. It forces everyone to make a decision and vote not take the easy way out and just complain about who is in office. Having said that, who do I vote for? Can I tick other and write in Jesus :unsure:
There's so many alliances and agreements between Australia and other countries, that I find it hard to know what is what!

The more recently established agreements include the Five Eyes (FVEY) alliance, which is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Then there's the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QSD/Quad) strategic security dialogue between Australia, India, Japan, and the United States. And even more recently AUKUS, which is a trilateral security pact between Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

I'm with Ruby, I might pray for the politicians that are supposedly in service to us, but I would prefer to reserve my vote for the Lord Jesus if I could have that choice. I usually go through the bios of the Independents and if I find someone there that has godly qualities then I will vote for them. but I won't vote for any that belong to a political party because their moral compasses are all over the place.

I am not a dream guru or anything but I ask God ALOT of questions and I am NOT INTERESTED in following man"s interpretation of anything esp if he is well known and people blindly follow his teaching because he has studied the bible for the past one hundred years and knows the origin of the greek or hebrew words blah blah blah. I ask God for myself and wait for his answer and go on that.

God talks alot to me in dreams for some reason. I dont know why but I love it. Anyways this dream was I am at the beach and everybody is out and about enjoying themselves. I look at the horizon and I saw a big black tornado. I said to myself “ gee if that comes this way. I still have time to escape as it looks far away” I barely finished that thought when the tornado was straight in front of me. It travelled so fast. Everybody around me was screaming and running into the water. I then heard a voice and it said “this is not a tornado, it is China” then I woke up. The strange thing about this dream is any voice that I usually hear in the dreams sound like me. This time it was a man’s voice. This happened two years ago.

So with the spy ship in our waters and the pact China has made with the Solomon Islands I am thinking something is on the horizon.
Thanks for sharing this...time will tell if it was a warning from God or not, but I won't be surprised if it pans out that way!

Australia, like the rest of the world I guess, is becoming more and more immoral and generally ungodly. The history of Israel warns us about what happens when God reaches the end of His patience with us.

I believe Jesus talks to us through dreams. I had one many years ago (circa 1988) that was in similar vein to yours in some way, albeit a little different.

In the dream, I saw to the north a big group of symmetrically shaped boulders formed up in a pyramid shape. A man on a tractor had attached a chain to the boulder in the bottom centre of the pile, and was attempting to pull it free. I remember me thinking in the dream, 'Why are you doing that for, can't you see that the whole structure will tumble down?' But he went ahead and pulled the boulder out and the pile pulled apart and all the boulders rolled away and from each other. In the next instance I saw a huge boulder tumbling down from the north towards where I was standing. I felt fear as I had nowhere to run and hide, and felt it would crush me. Then as I stared at this pending doom, just before that boulder from the north reached me, a bigger one came in from the east and stood between me and it, and I sheltered in its lee. That was the end of the dream.

Nice dream. It shows protection. What do you think the event was, or is it just showing you are protected. Whatever it may be the protection is the main part.

Well I am needing motivation to attack my garden and get that under way but seem to be lacking it. Hopefully it will turn up soon lol.

Jesus isn't sitting in Jerusalem yet, so vote your conscience for the best human. Who aligns most with Biblical values? Who will most likely protect your freedom?
That is the question, WHO? Neither I am afraid. Our politicians have been up the creek for the past ten years or so. It has been a real shamble here. Their own parties have overthrown the elected ones several times now these past years. It is beyond embarassing.

@Ruby123

I bought a small mobil home in December. It's in a retirement park, so the lot rent's cheap (half of the kind of rent I'd have to pay for a studio apartment around here). I'm not retired (praying God enables that SOON... tired of the stress of having to please a boss), and I'm earning decent money, so God has blessed me here. But...

MOVING!! AAWWWGGHHH I hate it.

Notifying every creditor, friend and family member about the change in address... setting up utilities... having to be home for those appointments... heavy lifting... heavy lifting... heavy lifting... packing... unpacking... more heavy lifting... things getting damaged in transit...

Blech
It certainly increases the things on your "to do" list esp if it is only for 3 months which I will know at the end of 3 months.
I can be very rigid with some things and tend not to like change so this is a big deal for me compared to those who are more flexible.
But knowing this God did prepare me with two dreams concerning this beforehand. One has come to pass two or so weeks ago and one is currently taking place. He knows what I am like and prepares me mentally/emotionally beforehand. Not with everything though. I did not know my mum would pass away so suddenly. Maybe that is a good thing as I reflect now on it.

If the dream was from God, I think it might refer to Australia being under attack, as well as we receiving help for our protection and survival.

The dream occurred a few years before the break up of the USSR, but I don't think the dream was foretelling that. I think it was foretelling of the break up of a unity of states, and I suspect that is to do with the Common Market, aka EU. The fellow on the tractor was dressed in farmer's attire. I think the large boulder tumbling from the north towards me, and that was actually on the land I was standing on, is representative of Australia being invaded by a large nation that dwells to the north of us. The boulder that came in from my right, from the east, is representative of an even more capable and stronger nation than the one attacking us from the north, and it will help protect us from being overrun. Time will tell of the dream's source and efficacy, and my interpretation of it!

I hope the unpacking is not too stressful, and you get plenty of rest in.

I dont have. dreams about other countries...I dont even remember my dreams. I used to but now when I sleep its like a log.

I think in some ways its a good thing to not have dreams or nightmares, or to always worry about things.

not sure if seeking christ is talking to me or what

but, I dont read every single post of his to know his whole life story, like his is the only post on the forum and everyone should automically understand his situation. Sorry. If he cant accept that then not sure what his problem is or why hes complaining about it on here.

when you talk about something that seems like its a problem it is natural for people to suggest possible solutions, doesnt mean they are telling you what to do. Try it or not. Up to you.
