I've had three events in my life that confirmed my belief in God

    I won't get into the details because these events were deeply personal, but each was a major turning-point that set me in a totally new and better direction.

    Each time God reached to me, I was in deep anguish. Then, afterwards, I felt much better, with a new lease on life.

    People who say they have no proof of God, I will tell you this.

    If you want proof of God, then pray.

    If you pray hard enough, God will present himself to you.

    I concur.

    I have no doubt that God exists and that He loves His children.

    When I was originally seeking to know whether He was real and where to find Him it was humble prayer and study of the scriptures that eventually led me to a point where the Holy Spirit could whack me awake to the Truth.

    But it takes faith. Even faith so small that you can only just believe He might exist and have a way to reveal Himself

    I only have one (that I know of).

    3 times God gave me a dream and told me what to do. I didn't understand why, but I did understand what to do, and when the time came, I was prepared, due to the dreams. That's enough for me. I'm convinced. :hands:

    I told about 2 people of it beforehand, cannot even remember who. Be nice if they were still alive and I knew who they are/were.

    I surely didn't have any way of seeing the future and telling me to do this, no matter what.

    God is there. The way to reach him is prayer. Pray hard enough and he will come.

    If it cut The Father out of your life, then no, you lost.

    But winning is easy. It involves coming to Christ and healing

    do those 6 times correspond with the number of times you've been pinked in the last month or so? :abgg2q.jpg:

    No worries, I pray for you anyway

    the same can be said for those that rely on their own understanding.
