    Searching For the Face of God

    God has always been there inside of me. He's always been there for every soul, Most Merciful is He. Yet there were times when I didn't understand how good could be bad in God's Eyes and how bad could be good. I am searching...I am looking to reconcile with the fate that God...

    Constantly Getting Lost

    I became a Christian 4 years ago when I was 23. Ever since, it has been such a struggle. I long to nestle in God. I long to understand what Jesus did. But I am numb. I feel so little sometimes. I often think of suicide - a way to leave this world. I don't want to think this way...

    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.

    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??!!
