I was told recently of someone who doesn't believe in God.
I have been pondering this alot in my gardening time.
I wonder...If I didn't believe, where would I find joy? Where would I find peace? Where would I find the value of beauty? Where would I find the answer to my longings? Why would I want to live? Would anything have real value? To only have temporary pleasures just looks so hopeless. Meaningless.When I think about it.
Where would I go when I have need of help or direction in parenting?
Where would I go when I find out my best friend has lymes disease and is suffering?
Where would I go when a relationship is broken?
Where would I go when I have fear, or anger, or condemnation?
Where would I go when I hurt?
Where would I go when I am being slandered or forgotten?
Where would I go when I am so joyful I could just burst and I need to praise?
Where would I go when I see something beautiful and I have a need to praise?
Where would I go when I listen to music that moves my heart, and I need to praise?
Where would I go if I didn't believe He was here. Near. Always. Ever Present.
In my pondering, I have come to the conclusion that everything outside of Him is useless, unfulfilling and empty. Void. Darkness.
He makes everything beautiful! He gives life! He is light! He is wisdom! He is protection! He is provider! He is comforter! He is healer! He is a constant companion...
Peace, Power, Protection, Provider Passionate, Present always... What would I do if i didn't believe in God? I think I might have shriveled up. Praise God and believe Him! He loves you! Oh how He loves you!
