    Hello Searching for God,

    May I assure that God is closer than you think and has His hand out for you? Please think of how Jesus (the person of God in human flesh), interacted with the Samaritan woman in the Biblical story of the woman at the well.

    Which religion do you prefer?

    Please remember Jesus’ words to the woman, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."

    Note that the woman was surprised that Jesus, a Jew unashamedly asked her for water and had something to offer her despite the hostile differences between the Jewish religious culture and hers.
    Unlike religionists, He made no hard religious demands. As the conversation continued, the woman asked for Jesus' offer.

    When Jesus asked her to bring her husband, she admitted that she had none. Jesus then described her adulterous relationships and commended her for telling the truth of her not having a husband. She then perceived Jesus to be a prophet and changed the subject to describe the differences between the Jewish and Samaritan worship.

    As the conversation continued, Jesus said,

    “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

    As the conversation ended, she left the water to tell the town that she met the Messiah.

    The risen Messiah thus awaits our response to Him after hearing His word to give us that same “living water.” Unless the believer of a religion is led to Him, the religion is empty.

    Besides happiness, God wants inner peace for you that cannot be mined away that only He can give.

    Take care,

    I can only give u this advise:
    Follow that which makes ur heart rest, feel calm inside.

    As muslim i can only speak for myself. Reciting Quran and praying gives me nice feeling of rest. When i have heavy head or dizzling or tired, i read quran and i pray. It helps for me. Also it lifts my faith in Allah swt.
