  • There are lots of gods, I don't feel any of them are responsible for our sufferings.

  • Yes. I do believe, I have had alot of things in my life happen that He has made Himself evident that He is real, and have had several angel experiences as well.

  • Yes.

    I have had a lot of sorrow in my life. I lost a father to addiction, then I was sexually assaulted at 15. Some how in it all, I never lost faith in God, but I lost faith in myself. Most of my late teens/ early 20s was a spiral towards disaster and hopelessness. I burried alot of things inside and numbed myself with alcohol.

    The road back from this mess of a life started when I decided out of the blue to go to church- any church. It happend to be a born-again Christian church. I was ashamed and even hung over at the time- but that didn't matter to them or to God. This is why, even though I am now Catholic, I will always have a soft spot for born-again Christians.

    This is going to sound like one of those cheesy stories that you hear on CBN, but it is the truth- from that day on, God moved like fire in my life. Cleansing me of what I didn't need, healing what threatened to turn my soul dark and hateful. COnt

  • Yes, I believe wholeheartedly in God.

    My husband died in a car accident while I was 6 1/2 months pregnant with our first child. Going through his death strengthened my faith a great deal. I could look back with hindsight and see so many ways in which God's hand was in our lives. Did my life turn out how I wanted? Were my prayers answered in the way I'd expected them to? No, but God has provided for me even when I've doubted Him and argued with Him. I recently got married to the most amazing man whom I actually dated in highschool before my LH. He loves my son as if he were his own. The God that I prayed to was the God of the bible, so I assume that He is the same one that answered and continues to provide for me and guide me through life. He has proven His existance to me. Does that mean I have satisfactory answers to all of my questions? No.....cont'd....

  • Yes. God is the only thing keeps me going through all my hard times and loses. Yes, there are times I do push him away and fall, but I always come crawling back. There are many times too I cry out to God and ask him "Why me?" I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your son.

  • I believe there are LOTS of Gods and LOTS of Goddesses. I've lost my fair share and have never once wavered in my beliefs.

  • Looking back now, I can see he was always there- trying to get through to me, but I had to make the decision to open my heart to him and then follow through. This was the most important- I had to follow through and make a change.

    So with God's grace and his forgiveness of me for the terrible things that I had done to people I loved and myself, I was eventually able to forgive both my father and my rapist. It didn't happen over night- it took several years- but I got there- carried in the arms of Jesus.

    I hope you can get to a place of peace, too. It really is the peace that surpasses all understanding.

  • But it does mean that I choose to trust in Him even when I don't understand. What I KNOW, I KNOW, and what I don't I let go. I figure if God wants to answer all of my questions one day, He will.
