I consider myself a believer in God and in all of his almighty power. I have learned many different aspects that God has been a part of throughout my readings in the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I have learned that God is good and he created our existence. Faith in this God is most important to me. I think you have to believe in God and trust God to do good. Faith to God gives that relationship to him and can be seen as the meaning of life.

I have learned that faith in this God comes from yourself. Now it might be different for different individuals, but I believe that faith is a part of your life that you can always have and keep without actually needing anything materialistic for it. God for me, is a great thing to have and be able to trust.

God proves to us through word and deed and inspires us to be good. The Bible, the word of God, helps the relationship between God and man become stronger. This covenant that we have with God is an important aspect in the faith in him because you are agreeing to all the good things he does for us and did for us. What I love is that God does not force salvation upon us, "Man is by nature and vocation a religious being. Coming from God, going toward God, man lives a fully human life only if he freely lives by his bond with God"(22). He gives us the choice to freely trust in him and gives us the opportunity for faith to fulfill our lives.

I also believe and have learned more about God being our creator of life, of man, and also how sin came into the world.
