I firmly believe in a personal God because it’s impossible for an impersonal Creator to create personal beings. It just doesn’t make sense.
In his book, The God Confusion, Gary Cox agrees that God is personal. He writes, “the idea of God, it seems must be the idea of a being that is in some sense personal, because a God devoid of all personal attributes, would be a far lesser God.”
All personal beings think. Therefore, God also thinks and he thinks you are stupid.
He thinks you are stupid because you claim that he hasn’t blessed you just because you don’t have what the society expects you to have.
Before writing this article, it dawned on me that most of us don’t have real problems. We create problems and use them to conclude that God never cares about us.
For instance, in 2014, I used to believe that God didn’t care about me because I never had enough money to hang out with ‘cool’ friends in ‘cool’ places. Besides this, I became depressed just because I never owned trendy shoes, and clothes. Poor old stupid me!
Recently, I realized how stupid I was to complain to God about lacking such silly things. I then noticed that many people today are just like the old me. STUPID! They are stupid because they fret over nonsense. Today, people can be depressed because they live in a cheap neighborhood, or because they have a ‘small’ salary.
If you are one of these people who fret over non-sense, yet you have somewhere good to live. Your new name is, guess what? Mr/Mrs. Stupid. Besides this, if you are one of these individuals whose all family members are alive but still complains that life is unfair, you are also STUPID.
I was stupid in 2014. I complained about life while I lived in a spacious house, and had caring parents, sisters, and friends. Instead of being happy by focusing on what I had, I was sad because I focused on the unnecessary things I didn’t have.
Nowadays I love focusing on the many blessings I have because it dawned on me that one day most of us will realize that we often complained about nothing. The day you’ll lose your legs or hands, or the day you’ll lose a close family member, you’ll realize that you always thought your life was bad yet you possessed wonderful blessings that many people lack.
Your family and body parts are a great blessing, and I believe you can’t give away any of them for a million dollars. Can you exchange your mum or legs for a million dollars? I guess you can’t. For this reason, realize that you have blessings bigger than your ‘small’ problems.
‘Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.’ – Robert Brault.
Most of us don’t realize that our problems are nothing compared to some people’s hardships. I have a friend from Sierra-Leone who witnessed his family’s murder during the civil wars. I also talked to a Facebook friend who fell sick and lost his child while he was sick.
These incidences made me realize that some people will be thankful if they lived our lives. Most of us have everything necessary for living a wonderful life, yet we are the biggest complainers.
Anyway, from today we must start practicing gratitude. We must thank God for what we have, and he will multiply our possessions. I agree with Christianity on the point that God withholds his blessings because we are unthankful.
Be thankful for every good thing you have because you might lose it anytime. Remember, nothing is permanent. Practice gratitude, and you will open many doors because gratitude strengthens your connection to God/Source Energy.
Lastly, here’s food for thought. Imagine providing someone with the most important things he needs. However, instead of being thankful, the person keeps complaining and thinks you don’t care about him just because you aren’t giving him the things that will raise his social status. Will you add more things to this person, or will you be tempted to take away the things you gave him? Will you think he’s intelligent or stupid?
Anyway, let’s have a good attitude towards God. The Creator has given us enough, and ‘he’ still wants to give us more. Let’s be thankful for what we have and stop complaining about what we don’t have.
