The Un-understandable God?

All of us have a question that we want to ask God the most. Even the person who is an atheist would have something that he must ask someone or, dare I say it, something higher about.

I am at this point in time that even the skeptics will ask whether there is any meaning at all in trusting God.

I know that some of us are debating whether God is real or not. Some are finding it hard to believe that God allows suffering. Some are trying to find ways to trust in God more, and some are just trying to disprove the 'concept' of 'God'.

I always have to challenge myself by taking a good look at the things that only God can make. Like the glorious sunshine, the moon that gives light to the night, but not too bright, the sea that rolls to shore without fail, the creatures that live in it, up to the flower that blooms today and gone tomorrow.

These things man can only imitate.

Most of us who live in the city only see man-made marvels that we tend to forget that there is a God who is greater than anything else. The creator of ALL things, the originator, the Alpha and Omega. The One who is at the beginning and the end.

Then I look at myself and ask, "Why has He called me to the situation I am in right now?"

What is he trying to do? Why give me something, and take it away? Why give me a blessing in disguise, then turn it into an affliction? Why am I serving Him but not much has improved in my life? Why did I sacrifice so much but yet I see no return? Why give me enjoyment in serving Him, but then make it difficult for me at the same time?

I am still at the crossroads. I need an answer. Where shall I go from here?

hmmm...i don't have the answers for ur questions. coz i face the same conflict these days, and ask myself whether i'm doing what i should be doing or should i be doing something else for the greater good?

times like these...i either exhaust myself with doubts, fears and confusion...or i just try not to worry too much about the crossroads and just do the best i can with what i have and manage my time and life...

eventhough there are areas which i end up neglecting...esp my friends and family. yah, i do feel guilty for not investing more time with them rather than my work & colleagues...but i believe God has a purpose and plan in mind for us...

just share with u some lyrics from 'prince of egypt'
~A single thread in a tapestry
Through its color brightly shine
Can never see its purpose
In the pattern of the grand design~

walk with faith, bro...He'll bring you through it...

so that you will not praise your own ability but acknowledge that He is the Lord of your life and everything...
