Hello God, it's me again
Some of us have had this conversation with God. Maybe you call on our Creator because you simply want to express your thankfulness and gratitude for the blessings in your lives; but more often than not, you find yourself in some sort of predicament or difficulty and you are compelled to connect with a power greater than yourself. Connecting with God is ultimately one of your greatest resources because when you have reached the end of your proverbial rope, there is a renewed sense of strength and energy that softly whispers, "Hold on tight, you can see through this."
Remember, you do not have to carry the weight of the world upon your shoulders. Hercules himself had to depend on his wisdom and good soul more than his own physical strength to defeat his enemies to see him through challenges. Had it not been for his innate ability to overcome fear and obstacles, he would not have achieved the greatness he did. It is imperative for you to always reach within your soul to find strength and a renewed sense of power so that you, too, can defeat your fears, sorrows and challenges in life. You must remember that wherever you are, that too, is where God is.
How do I know God even exists? Do you have a box of matches? If so, carefully take the match stick and strike it against the box to light it. Now, I want you to think about what you just did. You lit a flame with just a stick and a simple box. No one did it for you. It did not cost you anything to perform the action, yet you were still able to create a flame by exerting just a fragment of effort. If you think about it, that is how God works within you.
The tools are already inside you. All you must do is go within to feel that presence and strike the match. Once you realize that the flame is always lit for you, you must only rediscover it to feel its warmth. You see, God works in mysterious ways. Perhaps the difficulties or challenges you are facing are simply lessons you must learn in order to achieve your greater good. It is not that you are being punished, nor tossed to the wayside. Contraire, these are the times that God is pleading with you to rediscover the love and care that is meant just for you. It is through your trials and tribulations when you find the strongest sense of self and worth. You slowly learn that even in the face of tragedy, you are able to overcome and grow to be a greater, more self-sustaining you. God cannot let you down if you have truly believed in yourself.
The next time you share dialog with God, ask for strength, light and wisdom to guide you from the darkness. It is often in your darkest hours when you discover just how strong and capable you truly are. You can do amazing things and even seemingly "impossible" things when you genuinely believe that God is by your side. Truth of the matter is, you only falter when you give into your fears and lack of faith.
Trust that anything is possible with the power of God -- especially when you are "at the end of your rope" -- and you will see that miracles really do exist.
