Is God real?

When I was eight, He took my parents. It was a car crash, and ever since then, I’ve lived as an orphan. I lived with my grandparents for about a year, but God took them too. I’m an only child. I always pray to God - every night – to bring back my parents. I used to pray to Him when I was younger. I’d beg God to send me a sibling. Being the only child is a lonely job. My parents had no siblings, and their parents had no siblings either.  After my dad’s grandparents died, I went to my mom’s parents, but two months in to that stay, they died too. You could say that my faith was shaken after that. I felt like God wanted to ruin my life, or what was left of it. I was forced to go to an orphanage after that. That’s when it dawned on me, that maybe God wasn’t real. Wouldn’t God be loving and caring? I’ve always heard a nagging voice in my head, telling me not to do the wrong thing. ‘Don’t steal, don’t fight’.

So is God real? Here’s my advice. When you hear that nagging voice in your head, listen to it. Because whether you believe in God or not, you should do the right thing.
