Faith is very important to me, especially during my hard times.  That connection with God helps me stay positive no matter what I’m dealing with.

Faith, family and friends are important supports for me and what I turn to when I need extra support.  And in times where I need it most, they are always there to remind me that everything will be okay.

I want to let you know that you aren’t in it by yourself, and their love will give you the comfort you need.  For me, it’s like I’m walking through quicksand when I don’t talk it out with God.  Every step takes all my energy and I still go deeper and deeper no matter how hard I try if I do it on my own.

But with God I’m lifted to solid ground and can walk steady and straight towards my goals.  I’m free and can do everything so much easier and faster with the strength God gives me.  God doesn’t do it for me – after all I have my “free will” to make my own choices.  Instead God gives me the strength when I go to Him in faith.

Asking for help is a huge step forward because we can’t change what we first don’t acknowledge.  I respect everyone’s right to their own beliefs, as I expect them to respect my right to believe what I believe.  For me, I place my future in the hands of God.  He know, much more than I, what the future holds for me.

This Easter long weekend, I want faith to rule my life so I can stop the struggle to be everything for everyone.  I want to learn to move easier within the flow of my life – that is a lifelong goal for sure!

    I speak to God on a daily basis as well and without God I would have never come as far as I so far have come. Everyone does have a right to their own belief and I know faith has taken me along some very bumpy roads. As I conquer my day to day activities I thank God for helping me along.

    I do a bible study every morning. Talk to my savior off and on all day. My faith is paramount in my life. This is how I am getting from one day to the next. I do need human interaction and that is why I joined this group. Right now I need people in my life that totally understand what I feel. For 40 years I walked through my life as a twosome….now I have to learn to be just one again.

    I look to God for my decisions. It’s been 9 years and I still struggle at times as I have no family except my pup that God did gift me with. It does not get easier but with the help of God, l learn to cope.
