Have you ever seen/felt/known God's power in YOUR life?

    When my family shunned me, I felt the power of God. They believed it was His will.

    No. Never. Despite years of prayer, study, field service and being 'careful' I never experienced anything that remotely suggested God had taken any particular interest in me.

    I have seen plenty of instances of that Almighty Lowlife Scumbag's power--always to hold me back from reaping anything good.

    Prayer and my personal relationship with Jehovah got me through the most difficult parts of my life.

    Prayer never failed to bring me peace and comfort, that is, up until I no longer found any reason to believe in god.

    Now I take a few minutes to get grounded, get myself out of my head, into my body, and into the present. The results are even better then prayer, and way more productive.

    Yes. I have. I felt him when I was a tiny babe and toddler and older child. I didn't really feel him the JW years, but have since I left. It gets better the longer I am out.

    I could have written what Lady Lee did. I used to beg and plead with God, Jehovah to help me when I was being abused as a child. I remember praying at the age of five and seven begging and pleading with God to help me or let me die. As a child I used to beg Him to let me die as nothing I did was right, my mom said when I was ten I was leading me on. I was a ten year old child and I was leading men on? I never felt God in my life. I wish with all my heart that I could have felt he cared. I tried to do all he wanted me to and I never felt any time in my life that God was there for me. Even at Bethel I remember begging Jehovah to help me by giving me a overseer that I could please and nothing happened but more blame from my overseer on how horrible I was.

    I am trying to believe in God now to believe he cares for me but I do not know if I ever will feel it, I would love to, I just do not even know how to now. I am with Lady lee when she said that she finds it hard to believe God would allow someone to go though so much pain to be able to understand others or help others. It just makes no sense. I really wish I had the faith of Tammy and Shelby. And thanks Tammy for your nice words to me on the other thread, it was so kind of you.

    Very interesting comments folks.You see many people have felt Satan's power DIRECTLY and as Christians we claim he is a false god.However,he answers to his followers' prayers thus making his EXISTENCE and PRECENCE known.What I want to say here is that if we claim to worship the Almighty God then why can't we see His power?

    Yes I have... I too had a painful childhood with much emotional abuse.....

    All credit to Lady Lee and LITS for the incredible strength you show.

    On too many occasions to relate there were incidents where I was certain that god had made good things happen for me or had made a bad situation turn out for the best. This was both as a JW and especially during the next 9 years as a christian.

    Now I am an atheist things are no different. Life is still a mixture of good and bad, disapointments, surprises and happy coincidences. It is in our nature to ascribe everything to a cause - its an instinct that helped our survival.

    The real difference now is that I no longer have to hide from the difficult question of why an interventionist god plays favourites with his children.
