i want to hear what, how and in what ways is your faith important to you.....

is your faith and God first on your list or last?

good thing to question....right?

i answered this question in a essay i had to write...but in my own unformal words i have to say it means everything. how i act, talk, pray and live my life. i also take very seriously because it s a big part of who i am. i love my faith and what it stands for because that is the ultimate truth that anyone can find...

God BLess!

What my faith means to me...in 1 word: everything!

Without my faith, I would be dead...

Maybe I'll post my story one day...But faith is everything in my life...although I sometimes may not put God first, (I mean, come on, we all do it once in a while) He is still everything I have....

my faith? that means that I don't have to explain myself to anyone...it means that I don't have to live for anyone or anything ESP. LABELS, that I ONLY have to live for God!

Hmm.. as said before Faith is everything. It depends on how you look at faith too. During NT times faith was looked at as your relationship with God.. not just your belief. I think they go hand in hand, your belief and your relationship with God. My relationship with God, my faith, is absoutlely everything. If I did not have a relationship with Him I would not be able to make it through the day. Even at times when I'm not happy with God, or confused at what the heck He's doing.. He is still working... our relationship is still there. He holds onto me so tight..and just when I think I tear away from Him, I'm made aware that He's holding me closer than I can imangine. It's so so amazing. But also my faith, my belief, that God is guiding me and He is here for me is the very thing that moves me to do anything. The comfort that I get from the belief that no matter how hard I fall, no matter how much I try to pull away from Him, He's right there pulling me back. He's always holding onto me, protecting me, comforting me, guiding me, laughing with me, crying with me, and leading me where He wants me to go...is everything to me.

There are many things I need to work on. Sometimes I end up going and calling someone when things get tough before I'm on my knees in prayer. Sometimes, when things get tough, instead of praising God for His glory and amesomeness and trusting that He is holding me in the palm of His hand.. I chew Him out for not helping out the way I want Him to, or I despair and ask "Why didn't You do this? Where were You?" Sometimes I watch Tv instead of praying. Or turn my alarm clock off when it goes off for Mass instead of getting out of bed. But those are all things I'm working on. I want to put God first, and I'm getting there. But it's a struggle... and He's right there with me the whole way :lol:

I've walked a life without faith, and a life with, and though it may seem that Catholicism puts "too many rules" into play, they've helped me develope as a person, and realize what i need to do with my life. Sometimes the way is hard, but i heard it in a song once that "the road less traveled is the one He paved" and that makes all the difference to me. I love my faith and my God, so i can offer up any problems to Him. As others have said, my faith means the world to me, and i'd never turn back to the way i used to live.

My faith is everything to me, without my faith I'd be nowhere. MY faith has gotten me this far in life and will carry me on into the next.
