My faith

Postby ninco01 » Fri Jul 25, 2014 10:52 am

I practically grew up in a church but actually became a Christian when I was 16. My wife and I have moved many times and were often not near any family or friends. At those times, our church sort of became our surrogate family. I have a firm belief that God put me here for a reason or reasons and try to remain receptive to God's leading in my daily life. I am very thankful for my faith as it has helped me get through some very trying times.

There are many reasons to consider churches "the family of God" in a very real sense. My own church supported me immensely and without reserve through my divorce years ago; I don't know what I would have done or how I would have healed without them. I'm glad you have found this true also.
