I believed in God to fill the void in my heart, in my life. Basically, we all look for joy and peace. Now that I am living much closer to the Lord with a strong faith, I see things a little differently. God created us out of love ~ no question about this. Since the human race had gone astray, God then sent his Son Jesus to us to redeem us. So God really wants us to be back in paradise, where we should be. Therefore, believing in him complies with his very wish, putting us in a win-win situation.
