I personally don't have a faith of any kind to speak of,Well i don't follow an organised religion but i do feel that there could be a god of some description.Anyway the question i would like to ask is to believers of a religion,Any religion,What does your belief give you?What positive effects does your faith have on your daily life?I would love to know how faith works,How it makes you feel and im also greatly intrigued by the relationship you have with your god,Please describe to me the form this relationship takes.I suppose im just very curious as to how religion affects us humans and the influence it has on us as we go through our lives.Thank you for shedding any light on my curiosity.

I believe in GOD.but i think GOD lives inside us.when our heart says the work i am doing is right,I do that.when my heart says the work is wrong i fear to do the work.Somewhere I feel that GOD will punish me if i do any wrong work.I dont know whatever i think is true or false.I just believe in my heart.My GOD lives in my heart.

My relationship with God is pretty solid and getting more and more solid as I read the Bible. I talk to God, like He's my friend at least 2-3 times a week. I feel that my faith helps my have a better, more productive life.

My relationship with God is very important to me and has been for 26 years since I became a Christian age 23. I pray to God about everything and it is comforting to know He is there listening to me. I have published many articles with triond about my faith if you want to know more details about it, for example "miraculous provision in Switzerland" "when our plans don't work out" "getting to Thailand God's way" and others plus I have a blog about God calling me to Thailand which I'd love you to follow if you want -it's called movingtothailand-goldie77.blogspot.com hope to see you there and good luck in your searching for God!!

Since my family converted into other religion, I observed that the family have been very close to each other and we are being blessed by God. I'm not a religious person I should say but I trust God with all my heart!

first consider the definition of "faith" which means a belief of something ,then let us try to define a "Christian Faith" which means that believing Christ us your savior and accepting him as the owner of your life. As a human being, know what kind of faith you have. At my young age, I have been involved in different religions and was active in many church activities. I was baptized at the age of 15,it was then that I realized that it is not a matter of religion that saves us nor would make us happy but it is the sincerity of our personal relationship with God that matters. A good relationship with Him enables us to stand against trials and to be thankful in all circumstances. God is my refuge and strength!He lifted me up in times of difficulties and failures.Yes, I can't visibly see Him but I could barely feel His presence wherever I am.

I do not belong as to say a set church, where I attend every Sunday, so far I have not found one that I think is what I am looking for. But I am a christian and I talk to God every night last thing I do before I go to bed, and first thing when I get up in the morning. And I praise him several times a day, just so he knows that I am still with him. I don't do everything right, but I try my best to be a good person. He has taught me that getting mad and flairing up at little things does no good, so now when I pulled into McDonalds so hot and wanting a large drink filled full of ice, and get to the window and they hand you a meduim drink with 3 pieces of ice, just to say thank you and go on because it is not worth the fight and getting upset. I kow that when I ask him for something that he will most of the time give it to me, I always ask that he look over me and keep me safe from the horrible storms that come through here and it seens that by the time they get here they have broken up and not so bad anymore that is faith. Faith that he will be there when I need him. Not everyone's beliefs are the same and I think you have to taek god into your life as you see fit, not as someone else does. Eash of us has their own relationship with him. it is nto a group thing where everyone thinks the same. Just pray to him and ask him to be in your life and forgive you your sins, and mean it. I don't think I could live with out him there for me, he always shows me the way when times are hard,
