#1 Why Should I Believe in God? – Author – P.Smith
The world is a beautiful place. Everywhere you look you can see something amazing. Whether
you are observing a person, looking at flowers or just sleeping away in your own little bed,
there is wonder to be had.
Some may balk at this idea tha throw their own negativity into the
conversation. The flip side of beautiful is ugly as in war torn areas or disease infested nations or
draught and famine. And although this is a true part of our world, it should make one wonder
about how all of this came about.
Even in the areas of “ugliness” there is beauty.
There are families congregating, children playing and people finding the good in their situation.
God is everywhere. He created a world of diversity.
Yes, there is pain and suffering but who is behind all of this?
God created and man has destroyed. Greed and manipulation have given us a
world of ugliness. From warlords to terrorists to thieves, etc, the problems of the world are
manmade. I thank God every day for what I have. My life has not been easy but I am alive and I
get to experience the joy in what I have. I have suffered losses that I never thought I could
rebound from but the one constant in my life has been God.
I have asked “why me” many times and my answer always seems to be “why not me”! I know I have choices to make. God lays out a plan and I must make my own choices. I ultimately enjoy my good choices and deal with my not so good choices. My course in life is what I make of it and knowing that God is with me makes my journey a lot more fulfilling.
