You May Think You Don’t Need God, But Here Is Why You Are Wrong

The unseen God, why should I believe in him? Without him, life is working out for me perfectly. I have everything I need. He is not the one supplying my needs.

.
I work really hard. I have paid my dues so don’t sell me that crap about your God. You religious folks have come again. You even said he is coming back-where is his promised return?

.
I cannot pray to an unseen God. You people even play too much. Why should I hide behind popular religion to have the best in life? Why should I hide behind an unknown God before I can make good personal choices?

.
I got married to the best woman that I love, we have wonderful kids who are doing fine. I have a great job but I can’t be bothered about a routine serving of one God.

.
I love everyone around me, I don’t cheat nor do the things that even religious folks do. Why then do I need a God who cannot steady the universe that’s in a state of torpsy turvy?

.
Is he even real at all? If he is real, why are so many dying on the street? Why are many people commiting suicide and he’s watching?

.
But here is why you are so wrong about God:

.
He is not an unseen God. He is real. He can be seen everyday if you look well enough.

.
Forget religion, He cannot be found in religion. He is not wrapped up in religious rites of men.

.
He can be seen in the air that fills your nostril each time you breath.

.
He can be seen in your subconscious when you need solution to life’s nagging problems and the answer comes to you in the nick of time. He lives in you.

.
He can be seen when you cannot understand what happens at night when you close your eyes to sleep and still wake up.

.
He can be seen in the mystery surrounding the growth of a foetus in his mother’s womb.

.
He can be seen in the mysterious ways the birds of the air never die of hunger or stop flying, he feeds them.

.

He can be seen in the works of nature, the firmament, the glory of the fields, the wild animals, the flowers and the celestial bodies- he created them. 

.

He can be seen through the glory of the moon that gives its light at night, the stars, that gives a glow that’s heavenly, the sun, that shines brightly, the rain that nobody knows where it comes from or where it goes. Forget science’s trick in trying so hard to explain it away.

.
And if you are sincere to yourself and you look inwards, he can be seen in your conscience. He is the one who directs your thought to do right, to live right. In short, he keeps you sane in a world full of imperfections.

.
He is very real and would always want the best for you. He helps you to recognise what’s good for you in the choice of who to marry, how to live and what to do. You may not have acknowledged him but he was there with you all the same.

.
He is real because he controls the universe.

.

He is real because as a human, you have no control over the ground, they can shake. You have no control over the sea, there can be tsunami disaster. We are all in God’s hands and man has to take that into consideration.

.
Here is why you need him more than he needs you:

.
1. Because you are dispensable. You can be replaced.

.
2. Because you won’t live forever and you will still have to answer to him.

.
3. In the beginning he was there. In the end, he’s the only one you are still going to meet. He lives eternally.

.
If a man runs away throughout his life from his maker, denying him, one day, he’s still going to face that maker but it may be too late.

.
4. One day you will see him face to face

.
5. He owns your breath. He owns you.

.
6. Because everything in life is fleeting. It is vanity. It will pass away. Whatever you are holding on to, running after, will not stay with you or protect you from his wrath.

.
7. Because naked you come into this world, and naked you shall go back

.
8. Because it is appointed unto man to die once, and after that judgment. You cannot give anything in exchange for your soul.

.
9. Because there is a day of reckoning ahead for all men. If you have denied him, you will have no place with him.

.
10. Because it is not about you, but it is about the love he has for you. A man must find his place in God before every other area if his life would begin to make sense.

To you, it may not look like it, but he is definitely coming back. His expected return will not be delayed much longer.

“And if you are sincere to yourself and you look inwards, he can be seen in your conscience…”
Yeah. And if you’re sincere and face the truth that in a multiverse with billions of stars, you and I are nothing and the idea that we matter is ridiculous…but we cannot stand the thought that we actually do not matter except to exist and be the best versions of ourselves that we can be. We’re narcissistic and afraid, so we wrap ourselves in these ideologies that make us feel better.
But hey. Have at it. However, leave our sincerity alone. Because “we” believe as firmly as you do that if you were sincere, you’d know this was crap.

In summary, God lives the way santa Claus and the tooth fairy live. Because someone somewhere badly needs it to be so.

Damn, two minutes I’ll never get back.

    Thank you Pearl.

    If it makes you feel better that you are just existing and do not matter, then, its fine. I would never call it crap.

    It also makes me feel better to realise that God is real to me and I wrote it down. That doesn’t make it crap.

    Thank you for taking your 2mins to read, even though you’d never get it back(lol).

    I really appreciate your feedback.

Excellent and well written TRUTH dear…those who conscience are already being pricked and need to change their ways before its too late, and the time to answer to Him comes

Oh! I love this. I still can’t fathom why any person can say God doesn’t exist. He’s the reason why my nose isn’t under my feet, why my brain is in my head and not in my stomach, why liquid sperm enters a womb and a live baby gets formed, why the sky can never fall on top of us, why the dog needs not enter the labour room, As in, this is not a fluke. It’s not evolution. There’s someone behind the logic and perfection and beauty of everything on earth.

    As in, its not a fluke o, my dear. It is more than the theory of evolution. Science tried but it could not still overlook the existence of God.
    How a baby is formed in the womb is more than fertilization. It is supernatural!!!!
    Let God be true and every man be a liar!!!
