Being a new blogger, there are so many things to learn.

Today AJ’s Mom has published this post, which I found very helpful to me, so I wanted to share it with you guys – just in case someone reading my blog would be the same as me and need this information ūüôā

Have a glorious day ūüėÄ

This post has been marinating in my phone‚Äôs Drafts section for a day or two now. So while it‚Äôs still morning, I thought to crack on this (before little one wakes up) ‚ÄĒ and as they say, ‚Äúthe early bird catches the worm.‚ÄĚ Time difference in consideration, I know that for some, it might not be too early anymore. But I hope I would still catch you with this post.

I wouldn‚Äôt have known about this topic if it weren‚Äôt for Brittany at creativityarise.com, who shared ‚ÄėBloggers Beware‚Äô post on her blog and linked up a story with it. So thank you, for spreading this to your blogger brethren. ¬†After reading the story, I‚Äôve just been itching to share this with you. Plus, I really like a good chitchat with you guys on this matter, because the paranoia vibe is all over me right now.

Why does God allow pain and suffering?

Published August 10, 2012 by gigiwellness28

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.  As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversations.  They talked about so many things and various subjects.

When they eventually touched on the subject of God the barber said, “I don’t believe that God exists.”

“Why do you say that?” asked the customer.

“Well, you just have to go out in the street to realise that God doesn’t exist. ¬†Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? ¬†Would there be abandoned children? ¬†If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain? ¬†I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.”

The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument.

The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.  He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back and entered the barbershop again and he said to the barber, “You know what? ¬†Barbers do not exist.”

“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber. ¬†“I am here, and I am a barber. ¬†And I have just worked on you!”

“No!” the customer exclaimed. ¬†“Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! ¬†That’s what happens when people do not come to me.”

“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. ¬†“That’s the point! ¬†God, too, DOES exist! ¬†That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help. ¬†That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”

* * * * * *

P.S. ¬†This doesn’t mean people who go to God and/or look to Him for help do not have pain or suffering, the difference is those who go to God and look to Him for help have the inner peace from God to face the pain and suffering.

 

If you never by Author Unknown

God said…

If you never felt pain,

then how would you know that I am a Healer?

If you never had to pray,

how would you know that I am a Deliverer?

If you never had a trial,

how could you call yourself an overcomer?

If you never felt sadness,

how would you know that I am a Comforter?

If you never made a mistake,

how would you know that I am a Forgiver?

If you knew all,

how would you know that I will answer your questions?

If you never were in trouble,

how would you know that I will come to your rescue?

If you never were broken,

then how would you know that I can make you whole?

If you never had a problem,

how would you know that I can solve them?

If you never had any suffering,

then how would you know what I went through?

If you never went through the fire,

then how would you become pure?

If I gave you all things,

how would you appreciate them?

If I never corrected you,

how would you know that I love you?

If you had all power,

then how would you learn to depend on me?

If your life was perfect,

then what would you need me for?

Let Go!*

Published August 9, 2012 by gigiwellness28

* From the Internet, some titled this piece as “There are people who can walk away from you“, some as “Let Go“, some as “Let Them Walk“, but no matter what, it was by T.D. Jakes and most important of all, the contents:

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Hear me when I tell you this!

When people can walk away from you, let them walk.

I¬†don’t want you to try to talk another person¬†into staying with you, loving you,¬†calling you, caring about you, coming to¬†see you, staying attached to you. ¬†I mean hang¬†up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them¬†walk. ¬†Your destiny is never tied to¬†anybody¬†who’s left.

The Bible said that, “They came out from us¬†that it¬†might be made manifest that they were not for us. ¬†For had¬†they¬†been of us, no doubt they would have¬†continued with us.” ¬†[1 John 2:19]

People leave you because they are not joined to¬†you. ¬†And if they are not joined to you,¬†you can’t make them stay. ¬†Let them go.

And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad persons. ¬†It¬†just means that their part in the story¬†is over. ¬†And you’ve got to know when people’s part¬†in your story is over so that you don’t keep¬†trying to raise the dead. ¬†You’ve got to¬†know when it’s dead.

You’ve got to know when it’s over. ¬†Let me tell¬†you something. ¬†I’ve got the gift of¬†good-bye. ¬†It’s the tenth spiritual gift, I¬†believe in good-bye… ¬†It’s not that¬†I’m hateful, it’s that I’m¬†faithful, and I know whatever God means for¬†me to have He’ll give it to me. ¬†And if it¬†takes too much sweat I don’t need it. ¬†Stop begging people to stay. ¬†Let them go!!

If you are holding on to something that doesn’t¬†belong to you and was never intended for¬†your life, then you need to…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and¬†pains…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If someone can’t treat you right, love you back, and¬†see your worth…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If someone has angered you…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and¬†revenge…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or¬†addiction…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your¬†needs or talents…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you have a bad attitude…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel¬†better…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to¬†take you to a new level in¬†Him…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing¬†of a broken relationship…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even¬†try to help themselves…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If you’re feeling depressed and stressed…¬†LET IT GO!!!

If there is¬†a particular situation that you are¬†so used to handling¬†yourself and God is saying ‘take your¬†hands off of it,’¬†¬†then you¬†need to…¬†LET IT GO!!!

‘The Battle is the Lord’s!’

* * * * * * * * * * * *

For the next few moments, stop whatever you are doing, and take this opportunity to do the following:

Say ‘The Lord‚Äôs Prayer” for every life‚Äôs traveler you¬†know:

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come thy will be done

On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass
against us
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom, the power
and the glory.

For ever and ever
Amen!

Next, send (share) this message (post) to everyone you know.  In a while, more people will pray with you and with one another.

Next, stop and think and appreciate God’s power¬†in¬†your life, for doing¬†what you know is pleasing to Him.

An affirmation:

‘Yes, I love my God. ¬†He is my fountain of¬†Life and My Savior.

He Keeps me going day and night. ¬†Without¬†Him, I am no one. ¬†But with Him, I can¬†do everything, Christ is my¬†strength.’

Always remember:

God loves you and watches over you everyday.
