I keep telling every one to have faith and hope, that God is there for you, with you. I feel like I am being a hypocrite giving this advice because I lack faith and hope. I keep praying that God handles things for me. I keep looking in the scriptures for answers and keep praying for faith. I have prayed for direction, asked to tell me his will for me.... nothing, guess God is not ready to answer my prayers???? What am I missing here? Is it because I smoke, or dont go to church?How do I get him to answer my prayers, or at least know he is listening? I listen for his answers but nothing........I hear some say that maybe the answer is NO, or NOT YET. I have also hear people say that if you pray from your heart with sincerity you will feel his spirt with you, guiding you in the correct direction. I really want to believe he is listening, and knows what my heart desires, but maybe because I lack faith, I am not feeling he is with me, or there is a lesson I need to learn so I am being tested or tried. I dont want to think of God as someone who punishes someone because they are having a hard time believing or lacking faith. Sometimes others can see what you need more than you do so please feel free to look in my journal, most of you know my story and challange me or offer any advice. What am I doing wrong. Please tell me so I can change it and make it right. Thanks
