Faith, Hope, Love, Prayer
Faith, Hope, Love, Prayer. Is having a relationship with God really that simple? Love God, love others. Find hope in the dark moments. Have faith, God is with you and God's promises are truth. Pray to God daily.
God doesn't require us to know every piece of the bible. Does it help our understanding to read the bible? Absolutely!
Often times we over think our relationship with God or what faith even means. All too often we feel like we aren't good enough, or we don't know enough. We worry that we aren't connecting with God enough, or wonder if we are even doing it correctly!
God sent Jesus so we can relate to Him. I believe God wants us to simplify. Take a look at how we are living our lives. Do our actions and words glorify God? If you are living a life that does glorify God, keep doing it! Day by day God will draw you closer, don't fear or stress. When you make a mistake, offer those sins to God and know you are forgiven. Then start anew.
If you aren't living a life that glorifies God and you want to, know your sins are forgiven and Jesus loves you. Its never too late to hand your life over to God!
All these years I've been looking for a how to guide. Step by step instructions to having a deep and meaningful relationship with God. I didn't realize until recently that I already have a deep and meaningful relationship with God and my relationship only continues to grow deeper every day.
Each day, little by little, our connection with God grows deeper. Similar to watching a child grow, we don't notice the growth in the day to day. But over time, we look back and are amazed at the difference! If we are making an effort to cultivate our relationship with God, you can rest assured your faith is growing.
Isaiah 41:10 says, "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."
God keeps His promises!
Nobody ever has faith completely figured out. It's not about what you know, its about how you live.
