Why Is My Faith Important to Me?

I cannot separate myself from my faith; it is intertwined with my identity. I cannot remember a time that I did not know God. I can remember being mad at God, questioning God, doubting God’s existence and being befuddled my God but never not knowing God. Without my faith I would cease to be Lori. God created me, loved me into existence and chooses to love me daily. God guides my life, my actions and my calling. God protects and cares for my family and loved ones. God brings me comfort and solace through others when I am in pain. God is my Father, my Mother, My Daddy, my protector, my confidant, my teacher, and my best friend. Without God I would not see with these eyes, write with my heart or hope with passion. I could no sooner live without God than live without my heart or my brain. I am a vessel always available for God to fill me or guide me. God guides me to love selflessly, to give life, to serve, and to live life to the fullest. My faith is not just important to me it is everything to me.

Why is your faith important to you?
