Q:

I'm not sure I believe in God. I'd believe in Him, I suppose, if He actually spoke to me or something like that, but He never has, and I doubt if He ever will. I'd like to believe, but I just can't make myself do it.


A:

Very soon we will be celebrating Christmas, and my prayer is that this will be the greatest Christmas you have ever had. And it can be, once you realize what happened on that night in Bethlehem some 2,000 years ago.

Why do I say this? The reason is because on that night God stepped down from heaven and came to live among us. He did this in a way that is almost beyond comprehension: He became a baby! Even before Jesus’ birth, the angel told His mother, Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come on you… So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35). Jesus was more than just a great man; He also was God in human flesh — fully man, and yet also fully God.

Yes, you wish God would speak to you so you could know for sure that He exists. But He has already spoken to you — and to the whole human race! Do you want to know what God is like? Look at Jesus Christ, and when you do, you’ll discover not only that God exists, but also that He loves you and wants you to come to know Him personally.

And this can happen, as you turn to God in repentance and faith, and turn your life over to Jesus. Don’t let your doubts crowd out Jesus, but let Jesus crowd out your doubts. And He will, as you come — like the shepherds on that first Christmas — and humble yourself before Him.

    Teachers have helped many people to find a new start in life. There are many exciting things to study. Psychology helps one to understand thoughts. Music helps us to communicate God’s amazing
    Love to others. We can’t change yesterday but can ask God to give us strength for today. Each day is a gift from God. May he forgive us and help us live today for him. Many people don’t have enough to eat. We are truely blessed may we share with others today.

    Look outside and around you who how were all the plants and animals created along with every person? God created everything and everyone. I look at it this way, if you didn’t have any belief in God you wouldn’t have asked this question. God works in different ways we don’t have to see Him with our own eyes to see how He lives. Just have faith and trust and turn your life over to God and become a saved born again Christian and you will see a big change in your life all for the better.
