Have you ever notice that when everything goes smoothly, we feel blessed by the universe, as if a fleet of angels is guiding and supporting our every move? But when things are rough OR uncertain, we immediately throw our problems on God. When things were fine most of us DON’T consider God, but when they are in reverse well…that’s another story all together!
So the other day I am chatting with an online buddy of mine and he tells me that the friend that he moved in with a few weeks ago told him he had to leave. According to the story he told me, this friend told him that he could stay as long as it takes for him to get on his feet. He had some money saved and was paying his share of the bills, but when you are unemployed money tends to NOT last long. So as we discussed his situation he told me that he was NOT worried because he placed the situation in God’s hands. Naturally I was taken back a bit because this is the same young man that said WHEN I GET A JOB, I WILL BE THROWING A PARTY & THAT I MUST ATTEND! So as I sat and thought about what he said, I couldn’t help but wonder if he has BLIND FAITH or BLIND FATE?
Now I understand the need to believe in a higher power, but given the state of the world, doesn’t God have his hands full? Moreover, doesn’t the GREAT book teaches us that God helps those who help themselves? From what I know about life, inaction brings NOTHING and I find his logic sort of ignorant because he believes that that life functions haphazardly. Wisdom teaches us that EVERYTHING that happens in this theater of life has profound significance and to simply leave it all up to God, does NOTHING for him!
He like SO many out there who are affected by the economy just sit and wait for the day when they can put themselves right back into the place that brought on the economic status of the world today. If I were God I would turn myself away from his masochistic way of living because on some level he likes living this way a bit TOO much. I find it VERY confusing that one would serve the creator in such a blasphemous way. Would God really touch such a wobbly soul that is standing on one leg that yields itself to loose dirt? It saddens me to know that reality hasn’t begun its tedious crawl back into the reasoning of man. I get that we all are NEEDY, STARVED, DESPISED N’ DISPOSSESSED, but how strong is BLIND FAITH when your FATE is BLIND?
I feel that his life AND fate are a result of things coming to fruition by some unseen hand that has done much of the work. So when he is required to put in a TREMENDOUS amount of effort, he doesn’t know how. If only he could use BLIND FAITH along with belief in himself, he would see that FAITH in God ONLY works when his FATE isn’t BLIND as well…
