I've Been Looking for God for Over Ten Years

Quoting Aussie Bloke 954:
"Gudday. I didnt actually "find" God.
Its more a case of HE found ME.
Ive always known he was real...just an instinct i suppose.
The evolution rubbish didnt add up anyway so my insticts were correct.
At 15 years of age I met Him. I asked Him to show Himself to me.
He did...and much more.
But then I got all confused...I was flooded with Joy and peace and could litterally SEE into the spirit world.
For about two weeks we walked hand in hand..open and continuing conversations...answered questions..it was amazing...until I got confused about something.
Something called "faith".
I asked Him to show me what faith was.
You see...faith is what you need and what you use when you CANNOT SEE...OR FEEL his presence or person.
So...he said "Ok...I will show you by practical application what faith REALLY IS".
And just like that...He vanished.
Gone was the joy...the peace...the fellowship..all of it...gone.
I could see nothing..feel nothing...I was on my own.
Only I wasnt...he was always there. But I could not sense Him.
Thus my lessons on TRUST began.
I ran from church to church trying to re establish the connection I had lost.
To no avail.
So i despair I turned to the world...to drugs...booze..party time.
I thought Id done some horrible sin to make Him withdraw.
I hadnt...All I did was ask probably the most important question ever...WHAT EXACTLY...IS FAITH?
The reason I asked it was I could SEE everything...what NEED of having faith in what you CAN SEE?
So acter a lot of years of trying to find him...giving up...then trying again...then giving up again...over and over...it finally dawned on me.
Faith is TRUST.
Trust HIS WORD...HIS PROMISES.
Despite what you SEE OR FEEL...HIS WORD IS TRUSTWORTHY..HE IS FATHFUL.
Never rely on a "feeling" or what you "see".
Thats how satan tricks people into the supernatural...its all based on feelings and what you see.
Satan can do amazing stuff too.
Thats why it says "IF it were possible...he would decieve even the ELECT".
So about 18 months ago I finally realized what it was all about.
And the REAL peace comes...when REAL TRUST is formed.
Like a child will happily sleep in a car while dad drives.
The child LIFE is in the fathers hands...but the child TRUSTS DAD SO MUCH..that he or she will sleep soundly..even when its raining and storming..as DADDYS AT THE WHEEL.
THATS true peace.
Do you follow?"
Well, I never had your experience and I quote ".I was flooded with Joy and peace and could litterally SEE into the spirit world.
For about two weeks we walked hand in hand..open and continuing conversations...answered questions..it was amazing."
I also never had the peace or joy!
Because I never "Found God" I figured He wasn't real so I lived a hedonistic lifestyle. I came to the end of myself and I didn't want to go on anymore...But I figured before I do that, I'd better make sure God isn't real, because if He was, then I'd be worse...much worse after.
I do think God is real sometimes. But most often I do not...
I'm just all jammed up man. I want to find Him OR as you put it let Him find me. Either which way!
Shall we continue on or would it be more convenient for you to continue tomorrow?
