My Best Friend God:
God is our best friend, I’ve always had a strong belief and a love of God and believed that the Lord is my protector and God is my best friend because God protects his people. I was raised to believe that a higher power watches over us and that we should be kind to one another at all times. If you wonder if God protects us from danger? You will get your answer after reading my post.
When God is your best friend
I remember the first time I felt the presence of God and experienced God’s love. It was during my childhood when I was 6-7 years old. I had developed a strong belief that God was my friend, just like other friends or siblings, by listening to spiritual stories. And this ‘friend’ could do anything for me. So, whenever I was in a mess or needed a favor, I’d pray to God and bribe him with small sums of money. So, I bribed God.
“If mummy won’t scold me for breaking the plate, I’ll give you two cents. If I pass the exam, I’ll give you three cents.” That was my budget, and I bribed accordingly. My family was first astonished to find coins in our deity’s picture. But then they learned about my ‘arrangement’ with God, and they laughed, never stopping me from doing this or preaching to me that God doesn’t need money or bribing. They left the business between God and me.
Then, I grew up, completed my studies, and wanted to move to some big city for a job. This time, I took a religious path.
God, My Protector
Does God protect us from danger?
I came across my best friend God and understood that the Lord is my protector, God is our best friend when my parents passed away one after another. The world opened its loving arms for me, and people reached across to console me because God wanted to protect me; God protects his people. A cousin-brother of mine, whom I hadn’t come across in many years, took my phone number from my sister-in-all and started calling me every weekend.
He was very spiritual, and without asking anything about my well-being, he would start talking about God and how many ways He can be found.
I have also been in meditation and yoga, so we’d talk about meditation, not a word about anything else. He kept calling me every Sunday for one full year. Fifty-two weeks of spiritual talks had a calming effect on me; more than anything else, those talks helped me recover from my loss.
Not only this, but I found that birds and animals flocked around me like protectors, and I understood who my protector was. Suddenly, many pigeons started sleeping outside my bedroom, on the grill, as if protecting me in my sleep as my protector. Sparrows started coming and frolicking on my flat’s balcony. Then, one day, when I was walking on the road, I felt some wetness on my right hand, deep in my thoughts, which assured me God protects his people. I looked down and saw a dog licking its chops and grinning as if it was playing with me and trying to make me happy!
Earlier in my life, I was never a religious person. I went to temples and participated in religious ceremonies but never felt like I was there for the right reasons. It always felt like I was going because all my family members enjoyed those gatherings and not because they made me feel good or helped me in any way.
God Is Kindness
I had always been kind, but I became even more kind after my parents died. So now, whenever someone is having a tough day or needs help. I’m the first to offer assistance and show them kindness. It’s as though God has given me this new sense of purpose in life – to show people kindness and love no matter what happens to them, for God is with you. If nothing else, I compliment people on any good thing about them. And it lights up their faces! That is God smiling back at me.
The experience of God is a feeling that one gets when they are in the presence of kindness. It is a feeling that most people have had at some point in their lives. And somehow you get to feel God in your life.
It has been said that if you have never felt God, then you are not human. This is because God and spirituality go hand in hand. This makes sense because it is impossible to be alive and not experience the kindness of others at least once in your lifetime.
My experience of God is not like what most people think. I know there is a God, but it isn’t the kind of God that punishes us for our sins and gives us good things when we are good. Instead, God is love, and love is God.
I believe that God is an energy and experience. The feeling of God can come through in many ways – with kindness, through nature, through music, or by being in awe of something beautiful or powerful because God is everything, and the lord is my protector. This feeling gives me pleasure. God is full of love for us all. God created us and He loves us.
God, In Everything
I have had a lot of experiences with God. I had seen him in the most unlikely of places, heard him in the most unlikely of moments, and felt his presence when I needed it the most. It showed me that God loves us as we are.
God had given me peace when I felt lost, hope when I was hopeless, and love when I felt unloved. He had given me strength when my own body failed me. He offered me joy when all seemed hopeless. He has shown himself to be kinder than anyone else could ever be to me- even if he is not always what we expect him to be. God loves all of us. But is god our friend? Yes, God is everything.
Many people have had experiences with God, and they have different experiences. My experience with God was positive. I felt the feeling of kindness from Him. His love for me is unconditional, making me feel so loved. Life, love, and God are all interconnected.
God, My Mentor
God has been helping me through tough times in life. He has helped me be a better person day by day. He loves me unconditionally, no matter what happens in life. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn about Him and know that.
My experience with God changed my life as I understood what it means to have faith. I realized that I could have a relationship with Him, even though He may or may not be there. Earlier I used to ask, Who is God, and What is God? It is something that needs to be felt to understand.
I used the term “experience” because this is how we should think of our spiritual experiences as they happen naturally and without effort. For example, my relationship with God began with the feeling that I needed to know Him more deeply because He was so important to me.
God’s love for us encompasses everything. It was not until I experienced God differently that I realized the importance of my faith. This experience changed my life, and it continues to change me.
I experienced God through meditation, as well as through prayer. The meditation process allowed me to see the world in a new light and understand it. Meditation has helped me become more aware of what is happening around me. And it has helped me make sense of life’s problems better than ever before.
When your best friend is God, the world opens up.
And now I notice what is going on around me more deeply than ever before, and I realize when your best friend is God you are never alone. I talk to God like a friend.
I had a spiritual awakening, defined as an experience of God or the divine. It cannot be explained in words and can only be felt. My experience with my best friend, God, was an awakening that changed my life in a way. I could never have imagined.
