My connection to Gd as a teenager

Hello, all. I am hoping that with this post i might get some help and be able to sort some personal stuff out.

I am a 15 year old boy, currently living in a country with a sizable Jewish population. Both my parents are 100% Jewish, and nothing brings me more pride than my heritage, my grandfather being a Shoah survivor. I absolutely feel like a part of the Jewish community in the ethnic or cultural sense.

That being said, I have never been able to feel a strong connection to Gd. My household is totally agnostic, although we commemorate the major holidays because of the cultural part of it. I know all of the major rules of our religion and I even know some Hebrew from I had my Bar-Mitzvah.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about life and religion, and my spirituality and connection to Gd. Before I was completely certain that there was no life after death and that the world was formed from the big bang. Nowadays, though, I have been thinking more about how there might be a creator looking out for us.

There are MANY aspects of Judaism that don’t make any sense to me, but I don’t want to start a war in the comments hahahaha

I know some basic prayers and stuff, and at times I practice them daily, but I feel absolutely no connection at all to Gd.

Could someone more knowledgeable please help me sort this out? Thank you so much in advance 🙂
