God as a last resort


If you don’t know where to find God – try looking in these places. You’ll find God in the courtroom, in the bedroom, in the emergency room, in the bathroom, in the board room, and in the viewing room of the Funeral home, where it’s a little too late to find anything.

The name of God is used everywhere and in every situation  imaginable. His name is used by people who don’t want anything to do with Him or His ways; until trouble comes or the end comes, then they want to know Him. God is their last resort. He is also readily available, even at that last moment. How’s that for a loving, forgiving God.  Why wait?

God has placed His spirit in and on people, from the moment they are conceived. How and why else would people who don’t consciously know or want anything to do with God, call on Him in moments of desperation and even ecstasy? Because He is there.

It is not His desire that anyone should perish, but that all would have eternal life. We are born with good in us. All that God really wants, is for us to acknowledge that He put it there and to live with that good attributed to Him – not our own doing. We have good in us but also a free will to choose greed instead.

Atheists and agnostics choose to not believe God or gods are real, or they can find no fact to prove He is there or not there. Yet God proves Himself  by being the source and the topic of their non-belief. I can’t scientifically prove that He is or is not, but I believe He is.            I believe in the evidence of life.

Myself, I would rather believe that God is real, rather than living in a confused state of debating whether He is there or not and attributing all good to my own self-existence – being god of myself. How selfish and lonely is that?

As a human, I don’t have enough good within me to be  God. I will fail miserably, with anger, judgement, wrong decisions, favoritism, temptations, seeking self-pleasures, fatigue and isolating myself at times from you . “Leave me alone – I don’t feel like talking.”

If you’re mad at God for all that He didn’t do – get over it. He got over you and me for all that we did do.  God is not punishing us. Most of the hardships we suffer are either natural or self-inflicted. Don’t blame God. Let God be the source of love.  Love Him for that.

Live a life in love, with love. In love with God. In love with each other.                                 Not as a last resort but as a first choice.  Be reconciled to God. Let God be God.    Peace..
