Saying “Hello” to God again is not as hard as it seems at first glance. I have been searching for years, to find language to express the spirituality of my life.
As a child my parents instilled in me a religious belief. We went to church every Sunday. Living in a home of chaos, I couldn’t believe there was a God, so, I didn’t want any part of him. “Good-bye“! I just couldn’t understand.
He tried to get my attention to come to him and give me rest. God was banging on the roof, windows and the doors, within my own family. I would ask God “Why me? Why is this happening to me? Why am I different?” I knew whose fault it was didn’t I? It was God’s fault! Surely , I was doomed not to go to Heaven. Through the challenges and struggles, I would have to face the truth about myself.
In my darkest times, God was there. I realized later, that it had to be something bigger than me, making things happen.
That’s when I found the joy of spirituality. I found the light of reasoning, freedom, and love of God. I now have a sense of peace that is priceless. I have experienced unshakeable joy. I learned how to cast, all my burdens to God on a daily basis. I grabbed his shirt, and said You’d better make it worth it ,So far so good. It was the best thing that could have happened in my life!
