I believe that there is a God.

No, it’s more than a belief for me.

I know there is a God.

Everywhere I look I see evidence of  a God.

Mormon Woman: Sunset, Evidence of God

I see evidence of God in the sunset. In the clouds and in the stars. I see evidence of God in the ocean and on the land.

I see evidence of God in nature. In seasons. In trees and flowers. In mountains and valleys.

The scriptures tell us that “all things denote there is a God.”  From the earth, to the sun, to the solar system.  (See Alma 30:44)

God shows that He loves us continually. He has given us this earth, and our bodies and so many other things. The greatest example of His love for us is found in John 3:16:

“For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

I feel the love of God and I know that you can too. Take simple steps to know God and you can feel His love.

For example, you could do these simple things:

*Believe that He lives and that He loves us (Mosiah 4:9) – Plant that seed of faith and let it grow.

*Study the scriptures (2 Tim 3:14-17) – Learn of the creation, the life of the Savior, His visit to the Americas and learn of His prophets.

*Pray to Him (James 1:5) – Talk with Him.  Share your day with Him like you would a trusted friend.  Seek His help and His comfort.

*Obey His commandments (John 14:21-23) – Learn what His commandments are, in the scriptures and from living prophets. And then seek to follow those teachings. Love God. Serve others. Be kind. Be honest. Be pure. Have integrity.

My knowledge of God and seeking to follow His ways brings me great comfort and peace and hope.  It can bring you those feelings too.
