    We can't see oxygen, but we know it's there cuz we wouldn't be able to live w/o it. W/o God, there would be nothing. He is all around u & knows all ur thoughts, hopes & fears. He loves u despite ur sins cuz He created u! He loves us all so much that He sacrificed His Son who died for us willingly so that we can have everlasting life. Talk to Him- He hears u! Tell Christ ur worries & troubles & ask for His help. U'd be surprised what a little bit of faith can do. Peace be with u!

    Thanks people but im looking for more than that... Im not quite sure what but i hope i can figure it out .. I feel bad that jesus died for us because i can imagine how all my sins and sins to come hurt jesus and he died for everyone and so far i have yet to meet anyone who follows god like they should why is it so hard to get to heaven? I really dont want my soul to be trashed and burned and i certainly dont want to be absent from god, but how do i know god didnt just give up on us and go somewhere else in the universe and start earth2 or something? With how this world is today i cant see how god can stand to let it go on... I live in a society that says beauty is everything but some of the most beautiful i know are either super concieted or they dont see their beauty because they cant look like (celebritys name here). I hope that i can change myself so i can make a difference on this earth but it seems pointless to aimlessly pick a spot and fill it what if i dont fulfill my destiny? Why am i here? So many Qs and no As. Thank you for replying...

    For starters, I don’t believe there is any proof there is a heaven or hell in the literal sense that so many would have you believe. And who says if you do this you’re going to hell, and if you do that you’re bound for heaven? Humans, right? Everyone wants answers and I don’t believe anyone else can fully give you answers for you. I also believe the only place you find them is in you. I haven’t read much of your blog but from what I gathered by belonging to groups of domestic violence and saying you are damaged, I think you would be doing yourself a favor by getting to the bottom of why you ended up feeling that way in the first place. And from there you find the answers you can live with. I suspect when you do seek some help with those issues one thing will become clear as a bell. It was not your fault and there will be no need to blame yourself anymore or think you are destined for a hell. From what I know about survivors of domestic violence, what you are describing is a very common reaction when you get older. Don’t let it own you anymore.
