What drew you to the faith that you follow?

How does your faith ring true to you and your life compared to all others?
For me it was when I was at my lowest living in despair and loneliness.I was given insight and told it was not too late.In other words I was shown where the path I chose was leading me and I was assured I still had time to change.Thank you Jesus.
Once I made the first step to help myself.God has been here and helped me with everything since.It is really hard to help someone who will not even help themselves.I should know because I used to be that someone.

  • Not any non believer took the time to explain their faith to me. So I feel like they may not even know.

  • My path brings me peace and makes sense to me. It may not be what floats other peoples boat but it is not for everyone.

  • I never felt right with any one religion. And i studied up on a lot of different ways to worship. So, when i found out there was a term for how i take bits and peices from all religions (Agnostic), I felt good knowing that I was doing the right thing for me.

  • It had answers to things Id always wondered about but were told were unimportant in the grand scheme of things.
    It made sense, it made me feel complete and happy.
    It made me feel more spiritual then Id ever felt before.

    It felt right.

  • The fact that He loves me unconditionally is what led me to receive Him as my Lord and Savior.
