God in America
Support provided by:

Have you ever shared your personal spiritual journey in words or pictures? What does your faith look like when no one is watching? Do you have a favorite prayer or blessing? How do you imagine God? Do you consider yourself spiritual but not religious?

Faithbooking is a creative expression of an individual or family's spiritual journey. Beliefs, values and life events are captured in scrapbooks, diaries or journals, often incorporating photographs, decorated papers, scripture, thoughts, prayers, blessings and stories.

We want to create the largest and most diverse digital Faithbook ever. Help us by designing a page for you, your family, your community group or house of worship. Share your faith tradition or spiritual journey. Upload photos and short video clips. Help others learn and understand what you believe and why.

polkadots The King met a beggar on a lonely road one day A strange occurance took place as you will see, That beggar fell upon her knees and she cried, "Oh, pardon me. I am unworthy in your presence to be." But the King looked at the beggar and He said, "You've been set free. Your sins are all forgiven. Now you're born in royalty." And now the King and the beggar are walking arm-in-arm,....you see....That King Was Jesus, The King of Kings and that beggar was ME! He picked me up, turned me around, set my feet on Solid Ground - God was the Best Thing that ever happened to me. I was in despair - I did not believe, but He was all "they" said and more. God is truly wonderful. It has been 9 years. It's worth sincerely giving Him a chance.
ca God's character is often misunderstood. He is strong and Mighty yet shows mercy. He is all powerful and all knowing yet willingly gave His son to die. The Bible says that all of heaven rejoices over one sinner who repents. Jesus Christ came to have a relationship with mankind , this is very different than organized religion. Jesus confronted the Pharisees who were the group of religious people of His day, and for this He was crucified. He is the God of the brokenhearted

DrDMO4Counsel We Walk By Faith Not By Sight. 1 Corinthians 5:7 (The Lord used my husband as the vessel to call me unto Him.) This is the scripture he sited and 2 months later Psalm 113 brought me totally and completely unto Him. At that time I was in charge of a sweet little girl and her 9 years older, half sister. I needed to know that He was real and after asking Him to lead me to what I was supposed to, bam, there I am reading Psalm 113! Thank you, Jesus! The rest of this story is history and testimony. He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord. Psalm 113:9 From the rising if the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord's name is to be praised. Psalm 113:3 This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
bartholomew If you exclude anyone from the Kingdom of God, that one person you exclude will be you. "All other goals are at the cost of God." A Course in Miracles "Your worth is not established by teaching or learning, your worth is established by God." A Course in Miracles "Fear condemns and love forgives. Forgiveness thus undoes what fear has produced, returning the mind to the awareness of God." A Course in Miracles

PaulAndrewAnderson - I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it, I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
Ari From the Talmud (Pirkei Avos): > Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." > Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." > Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. > Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned."
