An obvious statement: everyone of us has questioned whether there is a God or not and we have come to a personal conclusion. Some of us lean toward the belief that there is one God, others believe there are many gods. Some of us settle to just wonder, or we come to the conclusion there is no god. We argue, over and over again whether there is a god or not, throwing scientific facts back and forth at each other. We create war and hatred with those we disagree with. And we never come to a conclusion.
I don’t want to throw a bunch of facts at you and try to prove that God does exist. I just want to say a couple of things that could help you understand my beliefs.
As everyone has, I have questioned the existence of God. I dig deep in the Bible. I read and expect to find an answer, and I do! There are certain passages that tell me, this is not a story, this is the real thing. When I dig for an answer I get this joy and sensation literally in my heart, it tells me that there is this great God who will protect me. It’s as if my heart is smiling. This is a feeling you can’t get with money, your favorite hobby, your dog, your boyfriend or girlfriend; not even family. This is, call me crazy, the Holy Spirit. So I go back and re-look at what I have. I have a printed word that tells me all about this God that says He loves me and that He died for me, a smiling heart, and something worth living for. I always end up in the same spot: thinking about how great God really is.@1 year ago with 19 notes
