    Closer To God

    Closer to God is the only place I can be myself... without having to hide anything. Without maks or disguises. I am truly me, with all my flaws and with all the love I have inside.

    Perhaps That Explains It...

    I battle through many issues and I think maybe it's because I need to be closer to God, but at the same time I don't think that I can be because he has lost his faith in me. I'm at a spiritual crossroads and I have no idea how to move forward with a spiritual relationship.

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Is There Proof That God Actually Exists?

    Lost My Way.....

    A brief history:  I found Jesus when I was 16, during the early seventies when peace, love and flower childs were it.  I always talked and prayed to God but never had a relationship with him until I was around 40 years old.  I was so very close, attended church...
