    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 :)

    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.
