Do you ever wonder, What is god? Who is god? Where is god?? Is there a god??
As children we learn to follow what our parents teach us, we pray because they do; we follow a faith because they do. We put our trust in this unknown Supreme Being in total blind faith because the faith is instilled in us from a small age. It is some one we turn to in need, someone who we believe is there for us when all the doors are closed.
But is there really someone up there? If there is, are we mere strings on a puppet in his/her hands? Does this Supreme Being really hear us; does he really guide us in the right path? Does he deter us from the wrong path? Does he really listen to our pleas?
If this is the case then why when we have struggled and strived to achieve some thing, worked our hardest, left no stone unturned to achieve our hearts desire and eliminated all obstacles in the way, does the goal that we are a stones throw away to achieve is suddenly snatched away from us. If it was not meant to be then why did we get encouragement to attain it and reach for it only to have it break is a thousand fragments right in front of our eyes at the last moment?? Why are we lead to a path, enticed with aspirations and when we are about to fulfil them they are taken away? Sometimes these things happen time and time again, isn’t being disappointed once a lesson enough???
Isn’t this exactly like giving a child a wrapped lollipop and when the child has learnt to unwrap it, It’s snatched away? Why give it in the first place??
People often say “Oh it was for the best it was not meant to be.” God knows this and there is something better waiting for you .But can you really have faith and believe this? Can we believe that our destiny is already pre written but that god gives us an opportunity to try and divert it, or change it?? If this is the case why do we face failure after trying so hard???Do we have the power to change our destiny? Can we then say that “In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t?
Maybe having faith in someone or something will help to build an inward reservoir of courage, hope and calmness when you think that your life is facing an un relenting storm. Maybe there is no supreme being, it’s just an excuse, a way to console one self or maybe its someone to pass the blame to when things are out of our hands.Maybe its humans way of reaching out when all other doors are closed? Who knows may be “Scepticism is the beginning of Faith??”
