An interesting experience in my pursuit of those things of ‘cyber-land’ has been to encounter people who do not believe in the existence of God. This blog in no way, is an attempt to belittle them…..It is merely my way of asking for help in explaining my deep conviction of His presence in my life…..My mental ineptitude and my suspect vocabulary aside, I should like to try. Hopefully my sincerity will be of some value in this endeavor….My prayer is that my brothers and sisters of Face Book and elsewhere will join with me, prayerfully in my witness of His holiness and omniscience.
Where to begin?…..Oh my…..Perhaps the question might be, How to condense His work of some 60 plus years in my own life into a few short sentences. A good start might be recent history….In 1994 chest pains sent me to my doctor and began a long struggle with coronary artery disease (CAD). My cardiologist began discussing trying to live 5 more years, by changing my life style…..As you an see, I have lived some 22 plus years out of those 5 years…..How does this prove God’s existence?…..To the agnostic it would only show coincidence, luck…..To people of faith it would show that maybe He has kept me here for a reason. Perhaps that reason is to befriend some who need Him in their lives?
To me proving the existence of God is like proving the wind…..You can not see it but you can see it’s affects. I see Him in the smile of a child, the lift of a butterfly from a Zinnia’s bloom, the song of a Whippoorwill on a summer eve, the tears of a grandmother lifting her voice to His praise…..What may seem silly to those of a scientific mind, is the wind that helps me sail through life’s troubled waters on a flimsy timbered vessel of my own building…..When I have lost my way, He is always there lighting my pathway back home.
How do I prove God?…..In short, I can not…..Search my life if you wish. You may see a man of many faults and failures….My failures are most glaring when I have failed Him…..Each time He has picked me up, dusted me off, and set me back on His trail….This I believe with all sincerity….If someone searches for Him truthfully, He will find them and He will reveal Himself in a way that will leave no doubt.
My Father in heaven, give me wisdom to proclaim your love throughout Your creation and to all whom You love. May they see past my feeble abilities and see the greatness of Your glory.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever should believe in Him would have everlasting life.” ~~ John 3:16
