"God Isn'T Real""Seeing is believing". What? Really? Just because you don't see something, doesn't mean it ain't there. What about the air? What about love? You can't see those either. You want proof? How do you expect me to prove something, you already don't believe exist? If you see that God is real, would that change your beliefs? Or still call him a "made up character" from a "fairy tale book".
You might say I was brain washed. Like some Christian talked or tricked me into believing in him. No, my friends. It was my heart. My heart opened up my eyes and ears. I have seen God. I have heard God. I have felt God. Because I allowed my heart to unlock and invite His love in. I believe because my heart told me to believe. I believe because my heart told me to stop turning my back on Him. I beleieve because it wasn't God who hurt me. I believe because I understand Him. Keep in mind, I wasn't always a believer. Trust me, Christians tried to get me to believe. But I always brushed them away. They didn't know me. God knew me though. He knew me very well. He understood why I didn't want anything to do with him. He knew that I would ignore any christian who spoke his name to me. God is so funny. He never gave up on stubborn, little me. Lol
Bad things have happened to me in the past. I had a traumatic childhood and adulthood. I was molested in church at age 5. God knew all bad things would happen to me. He knew I would struggle. He knew I wanted him to take me home(heaven). He knew my pain. He knew I was angry. He knew I always felt alone. But it was his love that gave me the strength to survive and be stronger in the end.
God, as I understand Him. You may not understand him, but I do. I know of God's love. I invited it in. I did it all by myself. It wasn't a story from the bible. It wasn't another human being. It was between me and God. Trusting and believing with my heart. And our relationship been strong ever since. I will never let it go.
You don't believe in God? That's okay. Maybe you are not ready yet. Maybe if you stop searching for this "proof" you will. I have my proof. In fact, my proof found me. That is how it works. Once you start believing, you start seeing. If you open your heart and say "God, I'm ready to listen", you might see exactly what I am talking about. You are not going to find the proof you need in a bible. You are not going to find the proof you need from other Christians, like myself. It finds you and you alone have to figure out what that proof is.
Let me tell you, this belief don't happen over night. It takes years. It can be the smallest thing that will get you to see it. Maybe in my story. Or perhaps while driving in your car. It happens when you least expect it. It is incredible.
So to answer your question about God being real. Yes, God is very real. But you have to see it for yourself. I pray that you someday, see what I see.
