My Journey in Faith Part 2

Yea, so let's continue...

As I've said, I've altogether stopped praying. I didn't became an atheist or anything like that, but I felt like it was such a burden praying... I was too busy with life to even bother with it. So, I prayed whenever I felt like I needed some help, some answer to a need, but never earnestly and never really seriously.Prayer was just a last resort, somewhere to go to when I feel like there's nothing else to go to, when I think I need a miracle of some sort.

And of course, not all prayers are answered the way we want, so when I don't get what I want, I ask God why He wouldn't give me that particular request, even questioned His existence at one point, or thought that maybe because I'm not as prayerful or as "religious" as some people, my prayers weren't heeded.And that downward spiral just propelled me towards a more unprayerful life, thinking that God only listens to those who are religious, go to church every Sunday and all those sort of things, and boy was I WRONG, OH SO WRONG.

I have learned in the course of this short life that God DOES EXIST. HE IS EVERYWHERE and He listens to every word we utter, especially in prayer, but HE IS ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL AND ALL MERCIFUL. He knows the RIGHT TIME to give us what WE NEED and WHAT WE ACTUALLY NEED, not what we think we need. It's sometimes a difficult concept but I have learned, and I know that God directs us and tries to continually show us the right path, where we should go, what we should do, but sometimes we are too blinded by our own pride, our own desires that we fail to see the LOVE and ABUNDANT LIFE He so earnestly wants for us...

How I came about that realization??? Next on my Journey in Faith... My Journey in Life
