Who is God? Do we actually follow him/her? Or is God just something we say to show others we are goody- two- shoes. Sometimes I wonder about it myself, to impress instead of really believing. I have had many miracles in my life, but I’m also a fighter! I will not let go until I’m really beaten, and will still find a way to get it done if I am beaten. How about the person who prays on a daily basis and still finds the same results? Nothing has happened to relieve them of their pain. Is it just some of us who feels Gods power? The ones who act instead of paying for hope? If Jesus would of said “The hell with this I’m -outer of here” would there be Christians? I will give you a little story. One night while at sea I was watching Television with some others in the crew lounge, I was 2 years sober and really doing well, however there were no AA meetings or someone I could call as we were taught in recovery to do when feeling a little uptight. We were in the middle of the ocean. A sailor who had a bottle of liquor sat next to me and opened it, the aroma was so strong it went up my nose and into my body like if I took a drink. I quickly bent downward in a fearful feeling, the sailor offered me some and I fought to say no. My mind told me to stay and fight it for they was no where to go. I decided not to listen to my mind and follow my spirit. I went to the back of the ship and looked at the sky and yelled “God please take away this feeling I have “I sat down and meditated breathing in and out my worries. I was relieved from the torment of taking a drink. Devil or bad sailor?, my actions and belief in a power greater than myself helped me to overcome a very bad obstacle. The ocean and the sky had become the God of my understanding for it was God who created both. Each and every one of us has the power to reach God no matter where we are at. All we need is an open mind and faith, this is my religion.
Have a nice day :0)
