Those times when I struggle in faith tend to push me to pray more often, read my Bible more frequently, and to ask more questions of my church friends. If those supports fail, I next tend to read books which address the specific doubts I have and to evaluate the alternatives to my faith. My latest attempt to overcome doubts has been to echo the father in the Bible who made this cry to Jesus, "Lord, I believe, help my unbelief."

In thinking about your question, I also searched online for answers. One article really stood out to me. It suggested these helps, some of which you'll notice parallel ones I have tried.
* Search your doubt to find its root. Then deal with the ROOT of your doubt.
* Identify the alternatives to Christianity.
* Evaluate your unmet expectations.
* Seek for truth in the historical evidence.
* Pray

Hi, blessed morning.. the best way to get your faith back is to PRAY to our GOOD LORD.. God is not is not surprised with situations..He is all knowing He knows ahead of time that you will back slide but still He is eagerly, lovingly waiting for you to return to Him.

I agree with everything Groadsmom said but, You asked what do you have to do to get right.....dont feel like you have to get everything right in your life in order to "get right" with God. If your wanting to get everything right again the 1st step you should take is to just pray about it and lay everything down infront of God and he will take care of everything else in your life. When you asked "how do i get God to confirm to what he wants me to do", remember this, God has a plan for all of us, sometimes it takes a while before we can see just exactly what his plan is for our lives. The best thing for you to do is pray about it. Don't get discouraged if you do not figure it out right away. And God is always working in you. One of my favorite sayings is..."God is willing to guide you, but you must choose the direction." Just remember that. I don't no if i've helped you any but good luck and God Bless!

Hi, Just the fact that you are here and asking that question shows that God is still working with you. The best way to get "back" is to pray every day and as often as you feel the need, spend time in his word getting to know him better. Do you remember the story about the Prodigal son? God will never turn away from you. We may turn away from him and feel that he has left us but in fact it is all our own doing. Ask for forgiveness and thank God for being there for you and showing you where you went wrong and for bringing you back. You will know the difference and will feel his peace when you get back to where you should be. God bless you and your faith will return to you as you draw closer to God.
