Coping – Reconnection
this post is not about forcing anyone to do or to believe in anything. It is about showing that there is a possibility. Its difficult for me to find the way how to say this, because I have been an atheist for all my life so trust me that I very well and all too good know how You may view the following. But after some events in my life my worldview changed from an atheist to an agnostic. To make a long story short, approximately one month ago I came to a realization that there is an actual and living God. This truly was a real shock for me despite being an agnostic already. But this message is not about me right now or about my story so far, right now it is about reaching out to someone, anyone in need, maybe You? If I am to reach even a one person that will be helped by this then it is worth it despite the negative feedback it may attract and that I expect, unfortunatelly. I am not saying I have all the answers, not at all, but this is not about decoding God – but reconnecting with Him. The post title is Coping – Reconnection, I am not stating or proclaiming that God will cure You (but do not give up this wish if You have it, nothing is impossible with the help of God, but only He knows what His plan is for You, there are no two identical destinies), I just want to put out the message that He may truly help You in/with Your life. So if You are that one person and wonder how can God show his presence and help You with Your life, I can give You a hint from what I learned and how You can start, but please read everything in my whole message first.
Trust me, this is really not just about You saying some words or simply thinking something lightly in Your mind out of the blue. These are also not a strict word for word guidelines, just an approximate approach that You can take that may help to God revealing Himself he is real to You. Please, do this (only) when You are really ready and when You truly WANT it: From within Your deepest soul and from within Your deepest heart (not just Your mind, yes - from the deepest part of heart and from the soul, You really do have to want and mean this in Your core), in a serious, truly sincere way (not mocking, funmaking, drunk, high, not serious or I dont care attitude, and also without blaming Him, without excuses for Your mistakes and neither in aggressive way), truly ask God (if You prefer You can address Jesus, God=Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit) to please forgive You for all Your trespassings and for all Your sins in Your life that You have done (make some review of them before this or here and truly repent of them, acknowledge that they were wrong and You shouldnt have done them despite You feeling they were right or just at the moment, especially ones when You may have hurt someone with them, anyone (in real life, even online – there are real people sitting behind computers, so it doesnt matter where/how) – repent as much and as sincerly as possible – in Your heart). To make the most to recive God´s true forgiveness, I will be sincere to You, there is also a hard part to this – especially for our communities – it includes Your forgiving others that hurt You in Your life. I know, a tough one, very tough one for most. But trust me on this one. And know that it doesnt mean Your giving up the fight e.g. against farmaceutical companies in any legal ways at all, quite the opposite because You will be much stronger after His presence in Your soul and Your life and with much more strength to battle for the right things. It is purely about showing forgiveness and letting go of the hate in Your heart (even despite some people being undeserving of Your forgiveness). You may even ask Him to help You with this one if it feels too hard to forgive everybody right now, but be at least willing in Your heart, show at least Your will to forgive the ones that did hurt You. In the same sincere and deep from the heart and soul manner I described above, say, want, let Him know, that You invite Him into Your life, accept Him into Your heart and into Your soul and that You want Him to somehow show His presence to You and that You want to accept Him and invite Him to help You with Your life. That You allow Him to work in Your life and that You are willing to change for the better for Him - that with God´s help You will try to follow His will, follow His Commandments and will be trying to live life without Sin. (If You are ready enough You may even want to say that You will dedicade Your life to Him or at least maybe that You allow Him to take over the course of it if He can really help You out with Your life).
This is it - if You are sincere and say it from the bottom of Your heart and soul and address it directly to Him. If You truly mean it. You may even have doubts if God / Jesus / Holy Spirit are real and if He exists, it is alright, You can even tell Him in a polite way that You are not sure that He is real, let Him know that – but tell Him that IF He IS real – to somehow let You know it and again that if He indeed is real - that You want Him in Your soul, that You invite Him to help You with Your life. Give this all You possibly can and be as sincere as You can be in Your heart, soul and mind. And what will possibly happen? Some things may happen instantly (like having some really unusual intense feelings right away), but also please be patient, because God often works in mysterious ways and It may take some time before He really shows His presence in Your soul and/or manifest somehow in Your life to show that He does exist. Instantly, days, weeks, or even months – but it will come and You will just know and realize… Be prepared that it may take You to make some changes in Your ways – but I do believe for the exchange of better life for You and also for the others around You. You may want to at least look into Ten Commandments and what Sins are to be truly serious about this. He can give some help with overcoming that too if You ask Him, but there must be a true will on Your part to work on the change. If He blesses You with His presence in Your soul then this would not even be that much of a problem, because it could then be all natural for You after (even enjoying). Believe in the positive outcome of this all and dont lose faith. You will not be on Your own after that in Your life. If You are interested to look into this more deeply and You are curious, to find some encouragement, there are really a large amounts of videos out there e.g. on YouTube about God / Jesus / Holy Spirit testimonies – how God intervened, helped, even healed and changed lifes of people. Real true stories of intervention (I am not talking about some self suggestion at all that You may be thinking right now).
I have written more or less a best in my own words version that I could think of right away from the top my mind of my knowledge about how to reconnect with God – at least for an atheist and as the first step. There are of course more steps and more official ones like getting Baptised for example, but I stick here to letting You know how to possibly be shown that God is real - by His ways especially for You, no two other manifestations are necessarily identical. I also do not mix into this topic of organized religion at all, neither I think that everything on their part is alright. But after the realization that God is real You can it take further, You will see Yourself. But if it all looks way too overwhelming for You already, there may be shorter versions on how to start, although I would recommend the one I described above (with steps of asking for Forgiveness, Your repentance, Your Forgiveness to others, trying to truly give up Sins, to follow Commandments, etc…). But for shorter one, as maybe an alternative first step that comes to my mind for an atheist or even a believer in doubts - but again You do have to do it with the same sincerity and approach I described above, You of course do have to WANT it, from deep within Your soul and Your heart, sincerly, deeply, kindly, humbly, but strongly and without any mocking and stuff of what not to do that I described before – if You understand that, than do this (if You want of course, this decision is only up to You) – address directly to God (and/or Jesus) that You would please REALLY want Him to show You that He is real and that You would please REALLY want and need Him to help You in Your life. That You do WANT Him to fill Your heart and Your soul and do NEED His presence and help in Your life. You should also add that if He is truly real that You are willing to change to be a better person and will follow His will if He can help You (at least that You will try to follow His principles) after that. Mean this all as sincere and as true from Your core heart as possible, give it Your true Yourself and Your heart as much as possible, Your all (again, in a sincere and a polite way). I would recommend also all the steps that I described above, but I hope this will work out as well - as a first step at least. The next one will be up to God after that, at least in my opinion, be patient and truly dont try on purpose to do anything against Him or His principles in the meantime, he does know everything after all so there are absolutely no secrets that You could hide in Your mind, thoughts, heart or in what You do, at all - from Him. With that said, any faking of Your sincerity or faking that You truly want His help and presence in Your life is of little use. So be sincere and from the heart when You will address Him and then wait for His part. You may also try again if You feel that Your first time You addressed God somehow wasnt quite right on Your side (but You dont have to if it was right), or You may simply repeat if You feel like it (but You do not have to) - to show Him Your true dedication for feeling, knowing of His presence. You may also work on Your improving in the meantime, at least small steps at the time while You will be waiting for His move.
Sorry for maybe a little untidyness of the post, length, somewhere repeating – but it was just to emphasize some parts of what I wanted to say. Please, dont be discouraged by the negativity of others or Your own doubts and scepticism at the moment. I have been there too so trust me that I know what You may be thinking right now, all of it. But maybe try to let go of what You (dont) believe right now. These things are beyond what people generally consider possible and yet it is possible and real. Again, I am not saying I have all the answers, not at all, but this is not about decoding God – but about reconnecting with Him. This one is about You now and it is something that may change Your life for the better - if sincere and treated with respect. Do not give up, be patient and strong until God will unreveal to You His existence in some way. After that it will be between You and Him on what next - but at least that first step is necessary on Your part, not His. You may not want to do it right now, maybe things will align to You later and You will come back to this post in the future and see it differenty. Or maybe You feel like that even today or maybe tommorow. But again, like I said in the beginning - this post is not about forcing anyone to do or to believe in anything. It is about showing that there is a possibility. This is the message, but the rest is up to You. I wish You good luck.
