    God is the center of my Universe. He is my savior and friend. God is my guide thru each and every day be it my problems or just a simple decision. He is what the world is yesterday, today and tomorrow.

    I answered this question this month on my blog. I’m not the best writer which is why I express my thoughts through images. I’ve found this makes it easier to talk about God — which maybe says something about what I think about God as well! Anyway here is the post: http://salamanderslam.com/?p=187
    I really appreciate Idol Chatter and follow the blog. Thanks for reminding us to see the sacred even in our mediated culture.

    What is God to me? EVERYTHING. One word says all.

    What Is God To Me?
    God is a the spirtiual Energy made up completely from Love, Compassion, Kindness, tolerance….and dozens of other Spiritual Priciples that I could name. This Spiritual Energy ( god) resides in all….whether we are aware of it or not….Those chosing a Spiritual connection are made very aware of this inner prescence, this Power. They choose to use it on their daily walk with others..

  • Korey

    God is my Eternal Father, but he is also my friend. He is someone I can talk to either when times are tough or going well. I share with Him my accoplishments and my dissappointments. I do ask for His help/advice and try to listen for His answer. I also help Him when he asks, which is actually quite often. I try to have the same relation ship with my Eternal Father that I wish I had with my father beforehe died. Simply, God is my Father but He is also one of my best friends.

  • BRUCE LANGE

    GOD IS MY COMFORT, MY STRENGTH, BUT MOST OF ALL, HE IS IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING!!!!

  • kristi kay singletary

    God is LOVE. He is the energy that all life gravitates to. He is the tree and we are the branches of live. He is my redeemer, my maker, my father. He is the one who stays when every one else leaves. He is the CPR that starts me up when I feel dead. He is the hug, the kiss then whisper of hope that pulls me up. He is my life raft when the storms of life turn my upside down.

  • Jaine

    To me, God is the One who always listens, always understands, never gets His feelings hurts when I complain or ask questions, never gives up on me, always wants what’s best for me, and always takes care of me. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you;” saith the Lord, “plans to prosper, not to harm, you; plans to give you hope and a future.”

  • Margaret Roberts

    What Is God To Me?
    God is my Eternal Father, my Light, my Strength, God is mercy. God is Love and He loves me unconditionally. He hears me when I talk to Him and only gives me what He thinks I need and He gives me all the Love in the world.

  • MARY ALDRIDGE

    GOD IS THERE FOR US ESPECIALLY WHEN WE ARE UPSET GIVING US LOVE AND GUIDANCE TO SEE US THRU TO A BETTER DAY

  • http://digitaldisciple.wordpress.com John E. Smith

    For me, God is both the booming thunder that reverberates throughout the world and the quiet, small voice that nags at the corners of my mind. God is the entity which creates, but does not control; which loves, but allows free choice; which cares, but does not coddle.
    God is with us always, even when we turn away or rage at what has happened in our lives. God does not play favorites based on the superficial stuff, like skin color, geography, culture, or even religion. God does pay attention to how we act and what we choose to invest in with our time, energy, and passion.
    God provides a rock-like presence in our times of need, but does not punish or reward here on earth. God sees everything we do or fail to do, but gives us unconditional love anyway.
    God is in everyone else I see and interact with, every single day of my life. I am God’s hands here and have the ability to do God’s work on this earth.

  • Julie Jariv

    God is my Savior, Redeemer, father, listener, prayer partner, miracle granter, and much, much more!

  • Susan Bailey Schwartzer

    God is the one sure breath in this life today, tomorrow, forever and for always. How wonderful to know there is nothing that can separtate us from He who creates all. Thank you Father.

  • Tiffany

    God to me is the One who is always in control, and because of Him I can always have hope.

  • http://What? Delores Baber

    God is the Creator of all that is and all that ever will be. He has given us free will, even to deny His existence. It grieves me to hear spiritually blind people trying to give their opinion of He who is invisible and can only be seen by faith. But if this gives me a heavy heart, how the heart of God must break.
    The world forgets that no only is God love; He is also holy. So they can quote “For God so loved the world . . . ” but forget the same Bible says “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”

  • Heidi

    God is the reason i smile,laugh,cry,believe,love,plant,reap and breathe.He is the first person i talk to in the morning and the last one i talk to at night.He is my father,my teacher,my friend.He is patient,forgiving,guiding and knows what i need long before i might ask.He is the colors in the flowers,a baby’s first cry,a long,tight hug from a friend and sometimes a check in the mail.He is never too busy for me and never shows me anything i am not ready to see.He is always there…waiting for us,his children.

  • Barbara Young

    God to me is the head supreme creature. He knows all see all and helps me to do all things. when i am down it is he who comforts me. In my times of doubt he is the peace i need to understand all that is around me. I need him in my life, he is my hope that there is more to life then just pain.

  • Tonya Clayton

    To me, God is my everything. My all IN all! There’s nothing and nowhere God isn’t. He’s definitely my Saviour because despite all that I do, say, and think He forgives me and permits me to continue to be saved because of his promise to be faithful and just.

  • estee dancil

  • Oh! My GOD

Oh! my GOD is an AWESOME GOD. HE is the true and living GOD. There is no other True and Living GOD!

  • Rick

    God is not a what, but a who, a supreme being that created all things and controls everything. He is a heavenly father, as we have earthly fathers. He is kind and generous if we follow his commands, but can be angry when we stray. He wants our worship and praise, and is pleased when we pray for help and thanksgiving. He gave us His son, Jesus, to be our saviour.
    He wants us to prosper and gives us free will to make choices. Our lives depend upon our relationship with Him. He lives, and wants all people to be his children.

  • sharon malone

    I START AND END MY DAY WITH GOD.HE IS MY EVERYTHING.HE IS ALWAYS THERE,WHEN I NEED HIM.HE FULFILLS ME AND INSPIRES ME,AND MOTIVATES ME TO DO MY BEST,AND TO BE THERE FOR OTHERSWHO NEED ME.HE HELPS ME THROUGH GOOD TIMES AND BADTIMES.

  • Rosalind

    To me,God is my all and all,my waymaker,my shelter in time of a storm.He there when friends and so call love one has turned there back on you.He doesn’t come when I want him to,but he’s always right time.

  • Your Name

    HE IS FAITHFUL, MERCIFUL, KIND, COMPASSIONATE, TRUSTWORTHY A FRIEND THAT IS CLOSER THAN A BROTHER.

    HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO DIE ON A CRUEL CROSS SINLESS WAS HE, FOR MY SINS AND THE SINS OF THIS WORLD, HE JUST HAVE TO TRUST HIM, DEPEND ON HIM AND TAKE HIM AT HIS WORD, HE IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE.

  • MelissaM

    God is my all. My trusting and living God. He’s Jehovah Rafa, Adonai, El Shaddai, and the Great I am. My Lawyer, Doctor, and confidant. God never has to prove himself to us. If we trust and believe he will always show himself mighty. When trusting Gods word, He will do what he says he will do, He does not lie.
    Again God is My all and will remain forever in my heart as that.

  • rose

    my God is my all in all. my Everything. He is my Healer and my Savior. He has pulled me out of the pit of darkness and brought me to the light of his glory. He carries me through all hard times as well as the good and I praise Him everyday for it. i know i’m not where i want to be but the Good Lord is doing a work in me and i’m loving it. The walk with Him is like no other walk i have ever taken. Praise be to God.

  • Sylvia Norman

    God is my everything.God is that bridge that is carrying me across these difficult,uncertain times. He is the “yes you can” when circumstances in my physical body and everyday life says”give up, you’re tired now”.God is the inner force that sustains me . God is the faithful friend who listens and cares so much for me and about my troubles.God is my protection and my shield from the storms of this life.God is my laughter in good times. He is my Only real comfort in bad times. I know that God Loves me and I Love Him back, I love Him too.

  • Deanna Brown

    You want to know what God is to me He is our Savior, he is the Alpha and the Omega the beginning and the end, He is the same yesterday ,today and forever. When I go through trouble I think about it then turn it over to God b/c it was me that moved not him. He is our everything.

  • julie tan

    God to me is all things n everything regardless of what the Bible says n how people everywhere see n feel.
    He is more than a friend,more than a healer,more than anything u can want or imagine n to me He is not only GOD.HE is what u cannot not to have n a treasure more worth than anything.You can always trust in Him at at times.

  • Deborah Green

    God is everything to me. He is the strenght, I need to deal with everyday. He is the sound board when no one is around.

  • Jerlean Holt

    GOD is life! HE gave me life and when Satan took life from me through a complete cardiac arrest, GOD slappwd him in the face, and gave me back life as HE promised, more abundantly! GOD gave me a family on which to bestow my love, HIS greatest gift, on. Best of all he has given me the insight to know what real wealth is. Best of all he has given me a song and a zest to share whatever I have.

  • Debbielee

    My God is awesome, (like the song) But He brought me back from a coma August of 2001. when I woke I could not move any muscle in my body. I was told I would be paralized on my left side. I couldn’t talk. I did have some use of my brain. I prayed- Dear Lord, you brought me back here. I need my legs for walking. I need my mouth for talking. Please send Jesus and you angels to help me. and within four weeks I was walking and talking! at first I used a cane now I jog! Yes it is God who is the Hero and giver of all that is good!

  • Marie Whalen

    The Lord my God is my Rock and my Salvation. He is so merciful, forgiving and forever faithful. Whenever an obstacle comes in my path I no longer run away in fear like before. My Savior takes me in His arms and gives me the strength to do what I have to do. And the best part about everything is that all He asks of us is to love Him with all our heart, mind and soul; and to serve only Him. That is such a little price to pay for what He has done for me, which is given me a chance to enjoy eternal life with Him and His Father in Heaven. I will forever be grateful to the Lord Almighty for giving me a second chance.

  • Your Name

    God is my husband, who is always faithful to me!:) God is my trustworthy friend, who never changes and is always by my side no matter what is happening in my life or if the circumstances are good or bad, God is always there for me and God hears my prayers and concerns. God sends me what I need according to His will and timing. I find peace and contentment when I turn to God for direction, discernment, wisdom and I surrendor over everything to God! I have an inner peace that no one else can give to me. This is when I know I’m walking in God’s will for my life. One of my favorite devotion books is Jesus Calling by Sarah Young and each day I read and talk to God and look up scripture in the bible and feed off God’s word to give me strength and to perservere to help me to be salt of the earth and walk in His light daily when things around me are looking dark. God helps me to be still and know that God is God and he is working all things out for the good, even if I dont understand what is happening wordly, I know that God knows His job and I trust God, as He is working all things together for the good of humanity and His plans not ours.

  • Donna

    Gods is my salvation. He promises me eternal life in Heaven because I accepted his son Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. He has purpose for me being here and who I am – an ambassador to go out in to the world and share the Word of God to others who may not have heard his name.
    He is using me in Hula Ministry to worship and encourage other women to fellowship with others like me so that we can strengthen, encourage each other, read the bible etc. What a awesome way to show our Lord Jesus how we honor and and our Father! How wonderful is it to think – He gave his only begotten Son for us! This is powerful when you truly understand God.
    God is my everything in my life today!

  • Wendetta Williams

    God is awesome he loves me unconditionally and will forgive me when I ask him to. and he created heaven and earth. He sent his only begotten son to save us so we can have a chance to go to heaven. I was saved and I got baptized when I was 17 years old. I have fallen off and on the wagon over the years but I am now trying to stay on the straight and narrow so I can be with god when I go to heaven this is what he means to me.

  • brenda spence

  • PASTOR PETER SUYAT

    GOD IS EVERYTHING TO ME AND ALL MY FAMILY……..PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!!!!!!!!

  • Jack

    I don’t know how to love God so I see Him in the role like my Drill Instructor – when He wants something done and He wants me to do it, He’ll kick my butt in the direction of the problem.

  • http://www.differentvoice.com Tim

    Hmmm…my comment seems to have vaporized. Let’s try again…
    God, I think, is not a “what” but a “when,” not a “being” but “being itself”. We experience God in the space between people, in the silence amidst the cacophony of our lives, in the unexpected tenderness of friends and strangers. We see God especially in the poor, in all of creation (for the cosmos is God’s body), and in compassionate and just actions of people.

  • Eva Bilderback

    For the past year my youngest son has really been putting me through valley after valley and I am just in awe of God hearing my prayers and has gotten my son out of trouble over and over. I really feel God answers my prayers quicker when I give it all to him and get face down on my floor and pour it all out. People have been near me when God has answered my prayers and have said hey could actually feel his presence. I praise God for the difference loving him has made in my life.

  • Ernesto Agbayani

    God is the center of our family. We gave God the full authority to control our lives. What could you possibly expect from a loving, merciful and generous God…nothing but the best things one could ever have.

  • JOAN MAGRICOTE

    THIS IS A SIMPLE CONCEPT WITH THE DEEPEST MEANING. MY BELEIF FOR MY WAY OF LIFE IS MY PRINCPLES TOWARD MY GOD. HE IS EVERYTHING GOOD. THEREFORE YOU LIVE EVERYDAY DOING GOOD. THERE IS A REASONN FOR EVERYTHING AND THE PRINCPLES ARE TO TRUST IN HIM AND WAIT TILL HE SHOWS YOU THE WAY. THIS MEANS MY GOD IS EVERYTHING TO ME, HE IS MY LIFE, I AM HERE FOR HIM. GOD BLESS US ALL. AMEN

  • Cindy

    He is my brother, my father, my friend, my companion, my leader, my coach, my strength, my faith, my love and my Life.

  • barbara williams

    As a single mom of 8, 6-adopted,1-grown, and 1-teen, I know for a fact that I can’t make it without God. Yes, it gets hard at times, but I can always look to God and he makes everything alright. He gives me the strength to go on and continue to help the children.
