I know without a doubt I have a relationship (albeit sometimes good or bad) with family and friends...
God isn't a person so He doesn't give me the same type of feedback, that's where Faith
comes in, because I think He answers with deeds, not
Many people lose that faith, I understand, because I have come close. I guess I have been lucky or have done just enough good for Him to show me
through actions from time to time that He is there
Just a quick story -
I have a 13 year-old daughter that has what can best be described as "mild autism", it is a chromosome deficiency. She is a real challenge, she has
the body of a 13 year-old but the mind of a 5-6 year-old.
Anyway, when she was around 5, we sat down at the dinner table on Thanksgiving Day. Keep in mind she had never been to church, and neither me, my
wife, or any family or friends had had any religious conversations with her before (that I am aware of). Even if they had, I don't think she would
have got it.
Before we started our meal, I asked everyone at the table what they were most thankful for. When it got to her, she immediately pointed out the
window, up in the sky, and said "God".
Those types of events in my life have solidified that faith in my relationship with Him.
