Do you have a close relationship with God? Are you a disbeliever because you don't see Him? True, we are stuck in the old credence that "to see is to believe." We were programmed by our parents or others who have influenced our ideals and it became a motto, a go-to phrase when we doubt the existence of something, or someone.
What if we stepped out of our comfort zone for just a moment? What if we try to give God a chance? Forget about what the others have said and set it aside for now.
Now look at yourself in the mirror. Look at your eyes, your face, your skin, your hair. Consider this... is there anything in the world that could be created as complex as a human being? Think about the saying, "which came first, the chicken or the egg." Think about what the atheists say, that we have evolved from apes. If that is true, how come apes don't turn into people?
We walk around this planet so vulnerable. Anything can cause our bodies to die and life terminated. Our outer shells are not impervious to the danger that lurk everyday, yet more often than not, we are fairly safe. Do you ever think about how our bodies have been made? From a single cell to the whole body, the complexity of its function so precise that we could go crazy trying to figure it out? Do you still think there isn't a God? I took a Physiology and Anatomy class in college and it boggled my mind how intricate the human body is.
Sometimes we need to step outside ourselves to really analyze this life. God is a genius! He created us with just words. Whatever He said manifested. We sin against him everyday, over and over again, and yet He welcomes us with open arms much like a loving parent who loves unconditionally. He wants us to have a relationship with Him much like we have a relationship with a loved one.
When I first thought about talking with Him, it felt weird. After all, it is having a conversation with someone who is invisible. However, once I got over that initial foolishness, then He became real. I can't explain how He responds back to me because it isn't a booming voice, it isn't my own voice in my head talking to me, but it's like a heart tug followed by a lightbulb moment. That is the best way I can explain it as there are no words to describe it. Then it started to feel natural. Today, I trust Him more than I trust any other person in this world.
If you listen close enough and converse with Him as if you are confiding with a close friend who doesn't judge you, be open and you too will hear His voice (or whatever it is).
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
