Dear Christopher, First, I

Dear Christopher,
First, I want to tell you that that "something" is, in fact, the devil attempting to separate you from God. Don't believe a single word because they're ALL LIES...
"Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat. Refuse to give in to him, by standing strong in your faith. You know that your Christian family all over the world is having the same kinds of suffering. And after you suffer for a short time, God, who gives all grace, will make everything right. He will make you strong and support you and keep you from falling. He called you to share in his glory in Christ, a glory that will continue forever." 1 Peter 5:8 - 10

You said yourself that you want a relationship with God! You are requesting prayer which demonstrates that you DO still have faith in God! Like I said: the devil is trying to separate you from God... which is IMPOSSIBLE:
"Yes, I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor ruling spirits, nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us, nothing below us, nor anything else in the whole world will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38 - 39

This is what I want you to do: go to a quiet place with your Bible and read, read, read. Ask God what He wants you to read and He will direct you. He loves you and knows what you're going through and how to get you through it.. "The only temptation that has come to you is that which everyone has. But you can trust God, who will not permit you to be tempted more than you can stand. But when you are tempted, he will also give you a way to escape so that you will be able to stand it." 1 Corinthians 10:13
Also:
"Even the very hairs on your head are numbered by God." Matthew 10:30
So remember... God is in control. He knows you and He loves you!

Cry out to God and He will be there! "God is near to you whenever you call on Him." Deuteronomy 4:7
Keep praying... and when the devil starts to taunt you, rebuke him in the name of Jesus and he WILL leave. Simply say or think, "STOP! Go away from me, satan! The LORD JESUS rebuke you!" Again, cry out to God and He will be there! God knows what we can and cannot handle, so He knows you can handle this- but ONLY with HIS HELP, so even when you don't feel like praying or reading God's Word, DO IT ANYWAY. Believe me, when you don't feel like praying or reading the Bible, that's when you need to do it the most!

When you feel hopeless and scared, remember: "I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and discipline." - 2 Timothy 1:7

"He will strengthen me with His Word." Psalm 119:28

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6

Those are just a few verses from the Bible, which is the absolute truth.. so keep reading! Jesus himself had to deal with the devil's temptations during His time in the wilderness (read Matthew 4:1 - 11) and look what He did: every time the devil tempted him and attempted to twist the truth, Jesus responded with a Bible verse! Do the same! READ THE BIBLE. I cannot stress that enough... and when the devil taunts you, the Holy Spirit will help you remember Bible verses so you can fight back the same way Jesus did... and look what happened:
"So the devil left Jesus, and angels came and took care of him." Matthew 4:11

Don't lose faith, Christopher! GOD IS WITH YOU!!

"Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6

I will keep you in my prayers, Christopher. Don't lose faith, and don't be afraid. Trust in God and keep your focus on Him... he won't let you go. =]
Most sincerely,
A sister in Christ
