Putting myself in the shoes of one of your friends who knows you as a pagan, I'm not sure that this is something I would really think was a big deal. You believe in God now, ok. But has anything else about you changed? If it did come up, I can't see how I would feel judged because you believe in God. It's a personal matter.
Unless you are saying that the God you now believe in is associated with a particular religious tradition which disapproves of people like your friends and family? That I could see being tricky to navigate. But a simple belief in one deity - that doesn't seem problematic.
My DH is a scientist, and was an atheist for most of his life, and close to 20 years ago, when he was about 40, he became religious. He was still working in the lab at the time, and his concern (and maybe the OP's?) wasn't so much about himself or his life or how he lives it, as much as it was what other people, the people in his life and the people around him at work, etc., would think of him. They'd think he'd (a) gone off the deep end, or (b) that he'd suddenly taken a "get stupid" pill, or (c) he'd been brainwashed, or (d) all of the above.
