    Is There Proof That God Actually Exists?

    A watch requires a watchmaker. What of our infinitely more complex solar system, with the Sun and its planets revolving around it with split-second precision century after century? What of the awesome galaxy we live in, called the Milky Way, with its more than 100 billion stars...

    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...

    I used to be very religious,

    very close to god and I was happy every single day. it all changed. I stopped going to mass, stopped confessing. and now I don't feel the same anymore. I feel I lost my connection with him and my spirituality. I need to go back to how it was. I need him back in my life...

    Fearing Closeness to Him

    I feel I need to be closer to God on a daily basis, yet I also fear this.  I know from experience that suffering is a definite way to bring me closer to God.  I am thankful for each and everyday that I have with Him.  I also try to be closer to Him, somtimes in the...

    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 :)

    At the end of the day,

    the only one who you can turn to anytime is God. People will let you down. The world will make you doubt. Nothing is definite so you can't trust. Power will be taken over. Money will run short. Your smile will fade. Anybody will say good byes. And for that, I need a solid...

    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.

    GOD has brought me through

    so much in life. Can't live without Him. Sometimes I wonder why He loves me so much. His love is so real...sometimes overwhelming. Words just can't explain.

    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.

    God said to love one another. Man says "I try but I'm human and there's some people I just can't love." God responds "then stay out of my way and let me love them."
