I Am Searching For God

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 152 People

    I've done pretty well on my own.

    It just gets difficult at times when there isn't anyone right there with you. Online friends are great. But they don't suffice the close connection that I crave every now and then. How does it feel to be bonded to something and someone? Do you ever question the connection? What...

    I believe in God, but not in the image painted

    by the religions of the world. I don't believe in the man who sits on a throne and is surrounded by singing beings. I don't believe in some guy who likes to test his children and punish them when they fail. I believe in something bigger. And I am on a path to find it.

    Changes, Oh Those Changes!

    When I was kid, the world was a blur to me. As it turns out, I needed glasses, but no one picked up on that until fourth grade. I remember the day I first got them. Driving home, I could see the words on the signs, and realized now why they were so important. I saw leaves in the...

    God Knows Where To Find Me

    I was searching for God, but gave-up.  If God exists, then he knows my home address, home phone, work phone, mobile phone, email address, Facebook account, and the licence & make & model of my car.   So, why is the heavenly father such a deadbeat Dad??!!

    I was raised Catholic, became a Christian when I was 15. I have lived a crazy life in which the Christian faith has severely frowned upon. I found sobriety 5 years ago and lost God in the process. I have studied Kabalah, Unity churches, and even Wicca. I am intrigued and by...
