without god i am nothing

God you are so good !

Wow god you amaze me and completely blow me away with your faithfulness and provision. You said jump trust and follow me I have I hasn’t been easy but I is totally worth it. The doors you are opening for me are amazing they are things I have always wanted but never knew how to reach them. So I thank you for being my provider Lord and my everything. Continue to open doors that need to be open and shut doors that need to be shut. You give me so much joy and peace when I follow after you and your ways. Help me to continue to trust you because I am nothing without you.

Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
The argument goes something like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,’” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”
“But,” says Man, “The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”
“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
“Oh, that was easy,” says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.

If any of these gifts of mine are to be used for anything other than the glory of my Father in heaven, let them be taken from me; for these hands are but flesh and blood not worthy of their purpose. They cannot write, touch, or be lifted without the whisper of Life. Without God, I am nothing.
So, let my words be worship and let my tongue speak nothing but praise and thanksgiving. I am a vessel directed by the Ultimate Captain. I am directed by Love Himself.

I’ll never find someone like him. I feel so natural with him, he makes me feel so comfortable around him and with myself. He thinks and knows that I’m beautiful in the inside and on the outside and he doesn’t even have to tell me, I feel that. He is always there for me when I need him. He makes me feel so confident and sexy about myself and god I love that. Without him I am just nothing. I am hurt, lost, lonely and sad woman. That’s who I am without him.

What does it mean for you to be Muslim? I think it's beautiful for people to talk about their faith, but also a private affair.

It means everything. Gratitude. Awareness. Grounding. Coming back always to God, through everything the universe has to offer. The good and the bad. All of my hope and fear.
Love and loneliness. There is meaning in everything. And blessings on blessings.

Islam isn’t just about the do’s and don'ts. It is so much more than that. It is why am I alive? Why do I breathe? What does this all mean? Where am I going? How do I clean myself? How can I live the best I can? Why is it important to be good to others? And how can I be good to them?

Islam keeps me humble. It reminds me always, that there is someOne greater than me. SomeOne greater than us all. And everything that we feel, live and touch; is there to teach us to love Him more. To remember. To be thankful. Mindful and present, in every moment.

I am nothing without God. No soul. No air, no body. No food, no water. No love, no family, no friends. I’d be none of the things that make me strong or keep me soft. No heartbreak, no loneliness. No illness or weakness. Islam is knowing that at my worst, God is there loving us and waiting for me to call to Him and at my best, God is there, waiting for me.

Islam helps me understand. It keeps me centered. So that I never go too far into despair or too high into my own ego. It is maintaining that balance. Islam is home. And the most beautiful thing, is that I carry it with me. Inside. Everywhere I go.

And I am always coming home. Always being reminded. Always seeking grounding.

I was going through shower thoughts, and saw this one.I'm kinda curios on your take here. "I lost interest in praying to God since I have to thank him for my successes but cant blame him for my failures."

I will preface with the reminder that justshowerthoughts is known to be consistently untheologically sound, and I would call to question most of what they say regarding the Bible. However, the topic at hand begs an excellent question, and I think it’s something that a lot of people struggle to understand.

I think a large portion of this mindset stems from an attitude of entitlement and boasting in one’s self. You see, the world will tell you that everything you have is as a result of you, but the Bible says that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.” (James 1:17) Every blessing, your possessions, your mental abilities, your physical abilities… none of those are anything you are required to have. You are only utilizing what God gave you in the first place. On your own, you couldn’t even put air in your lungs if God hadn’t breathed life into you to begin with.

Since it is God who gives you life, how selfish is it to say, “God, why couldn’t you have done more for me.” He gave you life, and not only that, He gave His own life to give you eternal blessings more exquisite than ever you could fathom. Paul tells us that every trial, every struggle, is worth it, beyond a shadow of a doubt, because of what God has in store for us! Romans 8:18 says, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”

I have absolutely no reason to scorn God because without Him, I am nothing. On my own, I’m a sinner by nature and by choice, in a fallen world that suffers the penalty for iniquities. A lot of my failures can be attributed to the fact that I chose my way instead of God’s. God’s way leads to eternal life and everlasting joy, and there’s no version of success this earth holds that bests that.

My brilliant friends also reminded me today that what we perceive as failures, might not be such in God’s grand plan. A failed class, a change in jobs, a lost friend, from the smallest to the largest obstacle, God can use every circumstance in in ways more glorious than we can fathom. Our failures teach us, grow us, prompt us toward sanctification, and often times lead to better things that we never would have otherwise considered. James 1:2-4 says, “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing”
