I believe in God. I’ve grown up believing in God and I have turned to God for every difficult moment in my life. I believe in the Bible and I believe in Jesus. God is in mind, spirit, soul, principle, life, truth, and love. God IS mind, spirit, soul, principle, life, truth, and love. I have never once faltered to believe in Him.
Growing up, my family went to church. We had to work around softball tournaments and traveling and often times we’d go weeks without physically being in church but I always new God was with me wherever I stood.
I believe that God is in all beauty of life. He protects us and gives comfort. I believe God only gives us what we can handle. I believe God blesses us with life and with our abilities and with our opportunities. I believe I was created in God’s image and likeness.
Today, someone told me they didn’t believe in God and felt as if they never would and I was at a loss for words. My mouth dropped. Questions flooded my brain and instantly tears came to my eyes. Typing this, tears are coming to my eyes. I never knew how genuinely I believed in my faith. My heart aches for people that don’t seek comfort in Him and don’t realize the beauty of the world. I’ve made it 19 years of life without ever being questioned if God was real and at this moment, I’ve never felt more sure of anything in my life. I stand strong in my own beliefs.
Since I’ve been in college, my dad sends me Bible lessons every week via e-mail. This week, the subject is Substance and is filled with wonderful passages reinforcing the greatness, the power, and the glory of Him: exactly what I needed.
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. (Psalms 33:5,6)
It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. (Psalms 18:32)
O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalms 139:1,14)
God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. (II Corinthians 4:6)
