This is my response to a comment left on one of my posts. (Edited for context)
Sorry I didn’t reply, maybe I didn’t see this post, or maybe I didn’t write back because I didn’t know what to say. However, I believe I have a response to your anguish. You are sitting on a fence. You haven’t yet committed to anything so you just sit in pain, thinking you are making everyone and yourself happy, Yet, it is just uncomfortable to be there.
You say that all religions are equal, all people are equal, all of nature is equal, mentality is equal. That is fence sitting.
The top of that fence isn’t a place to live, it’s only built to protect either side. I have a fence. It’s God, He protects me against doubt, insecurity, fear, unknown, loneliness and keeps me in a place of comfort, love, understanding, faith, trust and joy.
I hope that you are still here and that you can read this message. Time is not an absolution is it. Time is uncertainty. Time creates the urgency to commit because it is not guaranteed. I need more time? Do you have it?
Isn’t the absolution of time the answer? Is there any other force other than time that is time? Who created it? Who controls it? All the Gods? You think they all are in agreement?
There are many people that think that they can outsmart faith, that there must be a better solution. Even atheists have faith that there isn’t a God, right?! That’s super powerful.
complete trust or confidence in someone or something
What is even more powerful is that my truth and my faith are so solid, the Bible is true, His Word is righteous and I am going to Heaven when I die. Those are absolutions. I am committed.
Yes, we are created for purpose, you’re so right, and that purpose is to commit. There is only one soul, one heart, one mind and one God. He is the Creator of everything. If you are not meant to believe, you won’t and I am not here to convince you, just to share the truth and let you decide on your own.
I’ll pray that you fall off your fence gently and commit to faith in God. The truth is out there, He loves you very much and is waiting with open arms. I pray that you see Him in a super powerful way and that I see you in Heaven someday. God is so good!
The Greatest Commandment – Mark 12: 28-30
28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”
29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Faith in SOMETHING sure helps when things appear to go sour. Faith that I can get through the inevitable difficulties of life helps. Tomorrow’s another day and can (will, for me) opportune (with good nutrition, some rest & a workout) a new perspective on “things.” Some of our fellows on Earth have mastered the art/science of turning the ‘sour’ into something less sour…toward sweetness.
The phrase ‘have faith’ is not glib by any means, so if you ain’t got none… go find some, it makes for a better life. : )
