I know the world I live in is chaotic. I decided to pray about my situation instead of murmuring.

I know God is right here with me in my difficulties. I know God is with me. I had a divine encounter with God one day when I was alone in 2012 and in that moment I knew God was with me. Some times when others tell us about God we aren’t as sure of God for ourselves. God doesn’t become real to us until we have a personal encounter with him. Once we have a personal encounter with God for ourselves it becomes clear to us that God is with us and we discover we know God for ourselves and we become sure God is walking right there beside us. I have a strong faith in God. For a part of my childhood I was being raised Muslim like my father but now I have accepted Christ into my life and I have a strong faith in God and I pray in the morning when I wake up. I am praying more than I ever have in my life. I will focus less on people and more on a relationship with God. This gives me a peace I’ve never known before.
