Before I believed in God my life was empty and had no real meaning. I had all the material things that we all think we have to have, but somehow I was never happy I always felt that something was missing. I not only did not believe in God but I thought that everyone that did was either weak or just plain stupid. I didn’t have a sudden divine event or inspiration that caused me to start believing in God. I gradually realized that life as it was without a real meaning was not the way people are meant to live, so I started to ask myself what was missing. I examined my feelings and how I acted with other people and I wasn’t pleased with what I saw. I had habits and problems that I wanted to change but some how I never was able to. One day I said a prayer to God asking him to help me become the person I wanted to be and more important how I could become the person he would want me to be. I started to read the bible again and while I was doing this I ask God to help me to understand what I was reading. Sense that time a lot of things have changed in my life and I am no longer the person I used to be. I don’t claim to have all the answers or for that matter any of the answers to questions about why I believe in God. I just know that I do and I know that my life is a lot better now than it has ever been. I have listened to all the arguments for and against believing in God and I don’t feel like I am qualified to answer or debate the issue. I will leave it up to God to convence the rest of the world as I am sure he will some day. I feel that I should try to do the best I can to tell others about my belief in God with the hope that someone else will be lucky enough to have the same experience.
