    How I Know

    The real reason that I know I have become closer to God is cause the dark forces are trying their hardness to make me turn the other way. I will stick by my Lord God till the end and I will see him one day and be with my family in the clouds above.

    Closer

    I Don't Think He Can Hear Me Anymore

    I don't really claim a religion but I was raised Baptist and I used to talk to God all the time. Not actual prayer, more like sharing my thoughts and giving the run-down of my day. Well that was then...when I was a girl. Now I blame God for every mishap in my life. I...
