Is God Real?

It's a valid question. What proof do we have - really? Its a question that pretty much everyone wonders at some point. Certainly, it's not a question to take lightly!

Science debates it, religions confuse it, and people often ignore it. Is God real?

It's a question that you have to ask yourself. Are we here alone just trying to survive? Are we here trying to discover some hidden destiny? Is God real?

To be honest I can't argue it with facts. The facts I know are from the Bible. I can't argue it with science. Science is fraught with contradictions and theory's. And I can't argue it with emotions. Emotions are fragile and simply change.

But I can argue it with my faith. Uh oh, you say. Here it comes. That faith thing. But stop and think for a moment. Isn't everything based on faith? A scientist has faith that his experiment is right or his theory is well thought out. The facts that we have are based on a faith that the process to gather the facts were correct. Even our emotions are affected by our faith. Faith is real!

So how do I know that God is real. God has said "if you will seek me you will find me". I've sought him and found him. I just simply prayed and opened a Bible. I found a Bible that I could read. I listened to one on tape. I stayed quiet and I listened for him, and I heard him. I saw him in my life. I felt him. God is real!

It's not difficult. What's difficult is ignoring him or trying to come up with every reason to not believe. It's worth a try. Isn't it?

When Adam and Eve were in the garden, God walked and talked with them and the Bible says he walked side by side with them. He has always wanted that with each of us, and every time we mess it up. So He came to us. He came and died. I don't know how it all works, but I know the results that my life has seen. Every time I get something in my life that keeps me from having time to share my life with God I find that I'm not really happy. When I give time to pray and talk with him about my life I find that I'm happy and satisfied. It's that simple.

God is real! Why don't you talk to him about it!
