Do you feel like you have a relationship with God? [Spirituality & Religion]

The majority of us here are adults, so let's act like it and keep this civil, or I'll have to delete the post...

I believe that I do. I can feel God very strongly in my heart at times, (mostly when I am quiet and relaxed, in my bed). When I pray, I get a feeling of overwhelming love. And sometimes, if He wishes, He answers me in words that are not words, in my heart and mind. God is love, and if anyone has ever felt love, they know God.

@latinbutterfly Our connection to God is like a good cell phone connection. If we have not thought of Him, or sent our love to him with full feeling because our lives have become so busy or conflicted, the "signal strength" weakens, and sometimes it seems to disappear altogether. But He is our Tower. His strength and love never fail. It is only that we sometimes become too distant and can no longer pick up His "signal".

@4meAndyou Right, and He will eventually contact us in some way, shape or form 😉.
4meAndyou · F
@latinbutterfly Every single time you pray and you feel His love, He is contacting you.

Hello goodnight I believe I do with all my heart mind and soul!!!! I was a hard core atheist and went into a coma after a suicide attempt so yes now I see how good GOD is thank you for that good question miss
newjaninev2 · 56-60, F
@Gr8Guy1979 What’s the difference between a hard-core atheist and an atheist?
Gr8Guy1979 · 41-45, M
I don’t know sounded cool lol jk I used to bash and beat up with my friends on people from church specially Christian ones I was so lost but I’m glad God forgave me and those people I bashed now are my best closest friends and brothers in Christ @newjaninev2
Gr8Guy1979 · 41-45, M
Thank you my friend stay blessed @TheWildEcho
rjc36 · 56-60, M
Yes I do but I am not perfect and don't pretend to be.
TheWildEcho · 56-60, M
@rjc36 none of us are
PrivatePeeks · 22-25, F
No. As a child I tried to make a connection. It failed, as it also did with everyone I questioned. None had ever had a conversation. So elusive!

And so I set out to discover the truth.
newjaninev2 · 56-60, F
No, why would I have a relationship with an unnecessary fiction?

I prefer to have a relationship with reality.
Keepitsimple · 51-55, F
I do have a relationship with god and I don’t pretend to be perfect or sin free nor do I suddenly wake up and realize I made mistakes.
GodSpeed63 · 61-69, M
@Keepitsimple Amen, sister, amen.
Honestly, no..I do believe in God, but I don't think I have a relationship with him, as in I'm not a church goer, or a person who prays much anymore.
Don't delete it, just ignore the comments you don't like.

In a way yes I believe I do.
Vgore0304 · 26-30, F
God is fake
LonelyMan · M
Absolutely, but it's not based on "feelings". It's based on my experience with Him in my life since He influenced me to give my heart and life to Him thru Jesus Christ.
popmol · 22-25, M
well a hate relationship yes. i like to punch the bearded bastard right in the face :p (this is me being civilised :p on this topic at least)
TexChik · F
@popmol don’t be a dick
popmol · 22-25, M
@TexChik how am i being one? to me religion and those gods worshipped are filth. if you could generate power of a humans shear anger and wraith then i would have almost infinite power!
JammieDodgerHeart · 26-30, F
I don't believe there is one. Can't have a relationship with something I don't believe exists.
I feel like mine has been lacking, lately. I'm trying to spend more time reading the bible and praying.
I always tried to feel something when I was still religious, but I don't think I ever really did.

I think I've become more comfortable with spirituality since leaving religion. I don't know if I have a relationship with "God" per se, but I feel an energy, some sort of connection with the universe, maybe. One day I want to explore it more.
Sharon · F
Which one? I don't believe in supernatural beings anyway.
Indy74 · 46-50, F
Yes, I do. I never question it and I don't allow others to question it.
I have a relationship with something but it is not a god.
I did once. Then I started to need proof.

You know like how Thomas wouldn’t believe Jesus had rose from the dead until he could see him with his own eyes and feel the scars with his own hands?

I’m like that. If I die and I see God, I’ll accept it or if I experience something akin to that with my own physical being.
I am working on it, but yes. Do you?
latinbutterfly · 46-50, F
@SW-User Yes, I do. I'm a busy person, and sometimes I do forget to read the bible or pray. But I make an effort.
Spokeskitties75 · 46-50, M
Absolutely.... He and I are tight..
latinbutterfly · 46-50, F
turbineman40 · 80-89, M
Very close relationship
TexChik · F
@turbineman40 😊👍🏻
TheWildEcho · 56-60, M
Yes I have a very real relationship with God.
GeniUs · 56-60, M
No. Lost my religion about 15 years ago and I feel much better going about my life knowing that he isn't going to lean over my shoulder one day and say, 'I want you to kill your neighbour, a stranger, an unbeliever, your son to prove to me you really trust me.'
It's such a weight off my shoulders.
Hikingguy · 56-60, M
I agree. I am a believer but simply keep my thoughts to myself. Not my call if someone believes or not. But that should be a two way street.
People just need to need to leave each other alone and we’ll all just be better off.
TexChik · F
Yes , I do .

Yes of course.
Jake966 · 56-60, M
HellfireandCandy · 22-25, F
Yes, is it a great one? No I have my struggles with faith and acceptance. But it's there and I lean on my beliefs in times of need.
MissMoon · 26-30, F
Nope because I don't believe in God personally, but I don't have problems with people who have faith 👍️
Yeah it’s an abusive one from both ends I feel like
latinbutterfly · 46-50, F
@Insomniac100 I've felt like that at times in my life, especially in my college years.
aloysia · 36-40, F
yes but not a relationship that can be define by any religion.
before yes then had my moments later ([b]NOW[/b]) strong one!
Yes. I am grateful for God's love, grace, and forgiveness.
DrWatson · 70-79, M
Yes I do. Thanks for asking this kind of a question!
GodSpeed63 · 61-69, M
For the most part, yes.
Dolimyte · 41-45, M
No. I do not
Emosaur ·
Can't have a relationship with someone nonexistent.
GodSpeed63 · 61-69, M
@Emosaur [quote]Of course you believe that's what I did, with your faith-rotten brain that can't understand simple logic.[/quote]

Your so called 'logic' isn't logic at all. Your opinions and suppositions don't count as logic.
Emosaur ·
@GodSpeed63 Aww, look at that little faith head trying to define logic! Too adorable.
GodSpeed63 · 61-69, M
@Emosaur [quote]Aww, look at that little faith head trying to define logic! Too adorable.[/quote]

It's the truth none-the-less regardless of how you see it.

Proverbs 26:5 New International Version (NIV)5 Answer a fool according to his folly,
or he will be wise in his own eyes.

Instead, I'll be praying for you. Remember, I know and believe God answers prayer.
