Don't worry about the sin. God has made ample provisions for human imperfection and repentence.

For one family evening, I made up a game for my husband and son. Each played a character at the start line of life, and I called out the decisions that each character had made in his life to bring themselves closer or farther from God. Then at the end, whatever good or bad decisions each had made, wherever they were in their journey to God, each called out for God's love and forgiveness. And each was easily in the reach of God's grace.

If you have already come to the conclusion that it took me years to decide on - that God exists - you're halfway there. Looking for God in nature is a wonderful place to start. So is playing worship music in your car (or at least it is for me). And don't forget the little things. To me the way a scab forms over a cut, God's bandage, is nothing short of a miracle.

I spent most of my life waiting for God to answer my prayers. Waiting for an answer that I could hear. I even knew that the answer would come in a quiet whisper. But I missed it for most of my life. And I still miss it a lot. :) My brain is way too loud sometimes to hear it. But I've also had moments where I experienced that still small voice of clarity.

Hmmm... Perhaps some mindfulness meditation would help you in your quest. That centered stillness helps the Spirit make contact.

Good luck, Hannah.
