faith in God...

July 10, 2010 5:47am CST
many times our faith is tested. whenever we have trials, problems, failures and all the negative things that happened in lives our faith in God is tried and tested. we sometimes question God why all these things are happening. faith in God is essential for us to cope and to believe that we will survive all the negative things we went through. many of our questions will be left unanswered because many things happened for reasons not known to us and only God knows...whats important is that we have faith that despite all these a good and positive purpose lies beneath...if we have strong faith in God we always know that we will not be down because God will always be there to lift us up...

God has plans for all of us and that is the reason God test us on a timely basis. Sometimes we do not feel like God is helping us but that is again part of plan. We should have faith in God and ourself. I believe that God does best for all of us.

I don't believe in God and yet I still manage to survive life's trials, problems, failures and all the negative things that happen in life. Do I get bonus points?

Amen marifel. God will never give us more than we are able to bear. When trials and tribulations do come, we will find that we are much stronger when they pass. God is the potter and we are the clay. It is not always gentle manipulating of the clay to get it into shape, sometimes the clay must be really moved and shaped in a major way. Gods ways are not mans ways, and we will never totally understand until we enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

These past weeks I encountered this situation, I almost questioning "Him" why I was down and no one helped me with my problem. I prayed a lot and even asked my family to do the same. I was really shocked this week I received "His" reply to my query... absolute and perfect answer to our prayers. I know "He" is the only way that makes things possible and no man in this world could help person dealing difficulties in life except the Utmost Being above. I thank you so much God for your presence whenever I feel pain and having anguish and worries both in my mind and heart... Hopeless people come to celebrate life because you comforted them... I really appreciate your love and guidance in all means. I would be always there for "Your" desire oh God to happen in my own life... Like you my faith in God is tough and even more growing each day... I love you God!
