I was away from GOD and the church for a while, but by the grace of GOD I have found my way back. it brought me to tears to know that GOD was still there waiting for me and loving me the whole time. I now go to mass every sunday, and any other chance I get. I pray daily, try to read the bible daily, and never stop thinking about GOD. I constantly thirst for more spiritually, and I feel that GOD is calling me to do more for him than than just praying and going to mass. I am also taking spiritual guidance classes on line and I have a few prayers that I have written, & this has all happened within 2 months time. my life has basically done a 180 and I owe all this to GOD. I am looking to talk with catholics and people of other faiths, so we can share our spiritual experiences together and constantly grow in our faiths. I have seen my faith attacked at different stages in my life and I DIDN'T SIGN UP HERE FOR THAT. I would fight to the death for GOD, but I don't want to get into petty religous arguements over GOD. I don't want to talk to athiests, and don't understand why they would be on a religous web site in the first place. they have done enough damage to this world already. they took prayer out of schools, and now there's shootings in schools so often it's not even shocking anymore. they have convinced the goverment to take GOD, & prayer out of most public places, and the goverment obliged them. I admit that I'm a sinner, and who's to say that my sins haven't hurt GOD more? but they keep screaming foul every time someone mentions GOD and then people wonder why the world is in the shape it's in. coinsidence? sign of the times? I don't think so. But GOD has taught me to love all of his people and pray for them, because were supposed to love the sinner, but hate the sin. so if you are pushing an agenda for a GODLESS WORLD please don't bother me because you won't get a reply. the devil wants us and all of GOD'S creation dead, and has nothing but hate and despise for all of us, and I don't want to help him do his work by arguing with people. may GOD bless you and us all and have mercy on the whole world.
