A relationship is like a plant it needs to be watered, fed and nurtured.
A relationship needs common values, time and communication. My relationship with God is based mainly on trust, love and respect. In my opinion I believe that each and every day God influences my life in many different shapes and forms.Some might say there is no God but I don’t believe it one bit because each and every day of my life since I was a child I continue to succeed whether it be in school, extra-curricular activity or Just n everyday duty and one can’t accomplish this all on their own. I believe that God has always looked down on me and helped me each day and every step of the way, without him I don’t know how I could have done it these past eighteen years of my life.He has opened my eyes to see the true beauties that life has to bring such as family, love, friendships, being alive or living as a human being, and the list is continuous of all the things that God has given me and each every day I’m so thankful for everything in my life. In my life I consider family and friendship very personal specially my family considering that these are the people who since I was a child taught me how to grow up the right way and raised me to follow my faith and always thank God for all that he has done for us.
Friendship is considered to be one of the most precious things that life has to offer and I believe that my friends are like my family and I always put my friends and family before anything that might occur in life. My family and friends have shaped me to become the individual that I am today and I don’t know what I would do without them. I always keep my relationship with God close to me because I grew up in a Catholic family who takes our Catholic morals very serious and they had me attend mass as a child till present day even.Some ways I nurtured my relationship with God was when I was in my Junior year and I joined the Liturgical ensemble which sang at every school mass gathering, and this past February I went on the Franciscan service trip to camp Alveolar. Liturgical Ensemble had me feel close to God because I felt like I was praising him at each mass.
On the trip to camp Alveolar I made a few new friends and through the activities such as volunteering I felt the true power of God by helping others like Saint Francis and then best of all getting the satisfaction after of seeing their smiles after helping.Some of the other memorable activities we did on the trip was praying and Eucharist adoration, these two events personally gave me some peace and time to reflect and truly think about my relationship with God which went on to help me strengthen the relationship. Prayer was my personal connection to God which helped me take my own struggles and life and ask God to help me through them, then each mime I said a trouble God helped me through it. Eucharist Adoration made me feel like I was staring God straight in the face and I could grow closer to him.My relationship with god was put to the test when my dad was in a fatal car accident, hoped and had faith in God that he would make my dad come out of that coma okay. When I got the call that my dad left earth to go to heaven I didn’t know what to do, think or say.
My relationship with God went downhill from there I stopped going to church, stopped praying and stopped confiding in God. It took me over a year to get y relationship back on track.My guidance counselor made me realize that God was only trying to make my dad be at peace finally and not let him suffer through the pain that he had been going through for the past eight years. After my long talk with my guidance counselor I started going back to church little by little and I started praying and talking to God to assure him to take good care of my guardian angel.
Through all of my nurturing with my relationship with God I was able to build back a stronger and healthier relationship. My trust in God is received by the trust God has in me.
