Hello, my name is Hannah.
The reason I am here is because I am looking for, well, God. Things are starting to fall apart between me and him, abd I have questions over questions!
I don't know if I believe or not anymore, and I feel lost in this world.
I have been looking for a place to talk about my issues, but never found anything, so now I'm here.
I'm tired people who claim to be christians and live like the rest of the world.
So if you are a sincere christian and stumble upon this post, please go ahead and tell me who God is.
Thank you.

  • God is real
  • His son Jesus is God and the maker of everything that is made.
  • He made you
  • Everything that is made will die physically.
  • Before you die physically, he wants to redeem your spirit and have a internal ( everlasting) life with you.
  • Like any of us, you can not come into God's presence without doing something about your sin nature. God has no sin, you can't coexist with him in your present state.
  • God has a plan to forgive you of your sins and make you perfect in order to dwell with him and the rest of us forever!
  • That plan is centered around and dependent only on his son Jesus Christ
  • No matter what you are currently doing or have done, God offers this plan to you with out exception, except to receive his plan for you
  • God's plan is a free gift of salvation; all you need to easily learn, believe and receive his free gift, then your life changes forever and you are free at last!

Welcome to the forums @hannahvo. I'm glad you're here. It's no coincidence. I believe strongly you've been led here and I pray your questions are answered fully

I'd like to start off by stating clearly, God loves you and His love is unconditional. It is based on His grace and love, not our actions and ability to earn His grace. The Cross, Jesus paid a hefty price because He loves you.

I'm tired people who claim to be christians and live like the rest of the world.
True, but it's not really about them. It's about you and God now because that's what really matters at the end of the day (and ultimately, end of your life).

I'm not sure what your questions are and what you're struggling with, but perhaps reading the below may help you?

Cool picture Hannah,

Glad you found us here.

In a sense, If I told you who God was, it wouldn't be that helpful (Not that it wouldn't be helpful....). But, it would be more helpful for God to tell you who he is himself.

Hebrews 8
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 11 And they shall not teach, each one his neighbor and each one his brother, saying, 'Know the Lord,' for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. 12 For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."​

Having a personal relationship with the God who created everything that is, is kind of a big deal. I can't call Bill Gates up on the phone and chat, but in a spiritual sense, I can come boldly unto the throne of grace, because of the price Jesus paid to reconcile me to God.

‘You must be born again.’ (Some book, some chapter:some verse)

Blessings,

Travis

Welcome to the forum, Hannah! The answers to your questions exist, but not everyone is willing to do what is needed to find those answers:

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6

How does a person believe who doesn't believe? Become as a small child who trusts her parents absolutely and step out...

Hanna, God is a spiritual being who had no beginning, and will have no end, he is eternal. God wanted a being that he could share his love and life with through out eternity. Angels were not created in the image or likeness of God like man is. Only another being created in God's own image, and likeness can have a true love relationship with it's creator. The Lord God would not create a being to forcibly love him, it had to be of his own free will. God created our first parents Adam, and Eve, yet they failed in choosing, and because of it caused all of their off spring which is us to suffer for their decision. The Lord was not done with man and was not willing that man would suffer for something they did not do on their own. God, sends his Son Jesus Christ and that through his Sons sacrifice each and every man, woman, and child could have a free will choice to be his child, and live with him forever. All men have that choice today after hearing the Gospel of their salvation. How does a person become a child of God?

Rom 10:9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Rom 10:10 For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

I did this almost 40 years ago, and I have never been the same!

First before all else. Welcome to Talk Jesus Hanna!

That you have sought answers and have been brought here to hopefully (praying) find them or at least some of them that might provide you an anchor, foundation, that will never go away or leave you alone.

Well, you're looking for God? Awesome! He's been looking for you too! :)

So much so, that He sent His only Son to create a bridge that you might walk across.

Too often we look to get in touch with God, but don't avail ourselves of what He has provided to help get us there!

It's like trying to get from one end of Germany to the other as quickly as you can, but not getting on the Autobahn that is there for you to use!!
The real difference here is that God only provided one way to get to Him. Most refuse it, because of some things that they've heard from other people. Never really making the decision for themselves, but trusting others to tell them whether it's true or not.

I can tell you much. That God sent Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for you as an individual Hanna, but also for everyone else in the World as individuals as well. To confirm that this was not just another man, playing at being god, but the one true God. He brought Him back from the dead! (Easter just passed, so the story which is History as well, might be a little fresher in your mind right about now.)

No man has ever professed to be God, died, and came back to let people know about it!!!!

Once you know why He did this, and truly believe that He did do this. A new life will be waiting for you. Oh, you might feel estranged from Him from time to time. Yet, He will always be there!

I can go on and on, but I'll let you read what I've written so far. I will continue to pray for you and should you have more questions please feel free to ask me or any of my Brothers & Sisters in Christ Jesus here at TJ. They will more than be willing to help you with any questions you might ask.

Once again, Hanna. Be Welcome!

Welcome to Talk Jesus @hannahvo

What brother Chad said to you in His quote above is true
God loves you and His love conquers all.
He will never ever let you down.
People in the world might and often do let you down, they may be false and insincere
But the Lord is true and His love for you is true

Do you know Him as your Lord and Saviour?
He died for you on Calvary's tree and offers you His free gift of Salvation
All you need to do is believe and trust in Him

The Bible tell us of the ruin of man through sin.


For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God
Romans 3:23


Man is helpless to do anything about this
But God provided His own Son....for us a free gift of salvatioon

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly
Romans 5:6

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God
1 Peter 3:18


What if you die tonight | Talk Jesus

If you do know Him as your Lord and Saviour then

Turn to Him in prayer and commit all your negative feelings to Him
Read His word regularly....the gospel of John and the Psalms are beautiful for reminding us of the Lord's love


So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God
Romans 10:17.


Immerse yourself in the Word of God
Look at all of His unfailing promises....Trust in them.....rather than trusting your own feelings


Count the blessings in your life and sing His praises and rejoice,

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord
Romans 8:37-39
