Spiritual Sunday- The Interview With God

I don't go to Church but I do have a connection with God.  It's a special connection just between him and I.  I have never read the bible and the few times I have been to a religious service, I don't understand much of what is being said.  I like to believe that I live my life with the highest morals and with the best intentions.

Sunday is my day to reflect and I would like to post some things that I find to be inspirational and that maybe you will too!

The Interview With God...

"Come in," God said. "So, you would like to interview Me?" 

"If you have the time." I said. 

God smiled and said: "My time is eternity and is enough to do everything; What questions do you have in mind to ask me?" 

"What surprises you most about mankind?" 

God answered: "That they get bored of being children, are in a rush to grow up, and then long to be children again.  That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health.  That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future.  That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had never lived." 

God's hands took mine and we were silent for awhile and then I asked, "What would you like mankind to learn?" 

God replied with a smile: "To learn that they cannot make anyone love them. What they can do is to let themselves be loved.  To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who they have in their lives.  To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others.   All will be judged individually on their own merits, not as a group on a comparison basis.  To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs the least.  To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them.  To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.  To learn that there are persons that love them dearly, but simply do not know how to express or show their feelings.  To learn that money can buy everything but happiness.   To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it totally different.  To learn that a true friend is someone who knows everything about them, and likes them anyway.  To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they have to forgive themselves." 

I sat there for awhile enjoying the moment. I thanked Him for his time and for all that He has done for me and my family.

He replied, "Anytime. I'm here 24 hours a day. All you have to do is ask for me, and I'll answer."

  1. You don't have to attend church services to be a good person. :)

    Personally, I do not believe in any gods at all. I have read the bible in it's entirety and several other religious texts as well. I still consider myself to be of sound moral standing. In fact, if I said I believed and attended church services anyway, I'd be a less moral person because then I'd be a liar.

    I'm sure you are a very good person and I hope you and your family have a wonderful week!

  2. Thanks for sharing Ginger!! Hope your weekend was great! Take care! :)
