How Can There Possibly Be a God!?
How can there possibly be a God, One who people say sent his one and only son that we may be saved, when we live in a world of decay, a world of such chaos and turmoil?
Destruction and death fills the air, incurable diseases and illnesses devouring mankind supposedly so “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14 Lives of people are buried and swept away through the destruction of natural disasters within this world.
The deaths of young children tear at the hearts of parents who helplessly stand by. Tears fall and cries arise from the depths of their souls as they watch their beloved young die, for reasons that run the gamut from disease, to the violence of the streets!
The cries of innocent children go unheard, overwhelmed and ashamed over what has befallen them, at no fault of their own but by the hands of those they were born to love and trust as they are neglected and abused!
Death comes to men and women fighting side by side in honor of defending their country and what they believe in.
Man persuaded and brainwashed to believe in evil disguised as the goodness of truth, dying for what they believe will unite them with the redeemer while bringing with them terror to those in their paths.
Hunger and thirst befall those unfortunate enough to be born in third world countries outside of wealth and prosperity, or the homeless living in the streets of the wealthiest cities. Hands reach out to passersby for a morsel; hearts reach out for love, for the ray of hope!
People succumbing to powers seemingly beyond their ability to control, beloved brothers and sisters who are “born” that way, unable to change that who they say they are, taking them away from what is supposedly morally right. And they ask, “why does it makes it morally wrong!?”
A mother fights with all her power, loving her children with all her heart, both young and old, doing all that is scribed in the “Holy Book” in raising her children so that they follow the path of righteousness only to live in heartache as one or more fall out of her reach.
Eyes and ears are turned and decisions by those governing are obscured by the influence of wealth and corruption, depleting the world of its richness and depriving the people of trust.
Oh how can there be a God when we are daily bombarded with the heart ache and immorality of this world supposedly made in 6 days by the One who said his creation was good! So good that on the 7th day he rested and blessed it, making it Holy! Referencing Genisis 1:31, 2:2-3

Are you asking me, or are you asking man? For this answer you will not find among mankind, but dare you come, follow me, and I will fill you with the knowledge and understanding your heart cries for. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matt 7:7
Your heart is seeking with your question, it is leading you to what it knows to be true yet you hold back. Do not be afraid of that which your heart yearns for. “But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.” Deuteronomy 4:29 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 “I am the way and the truth and the life.” John 14:6
“Listen now, and I will speak . . .” Job 42:4 “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous.” Joshua 10:25 “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:4
My child, I created the heavens and the earth and all living matter within it! I brought it life, beauty, peace, and harmony! I created you in my own image living in perfection and in harmony with me. That I did this many will dispute to the end of life on your earth as you know it. In the beginning all was good. But man is so easily corrupted, bringing forth the dismay in which you live today. Do you not think of how my heart breaks for you!
“Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. John 3:19 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.” John 14:1
I hear your cries; I feel your pain, my tears fall alongside yours. I have given you breath. I have given you life. I have given you joy. I have given you tears though which you have been able to experience true love. Come follow me that you may also experience everlasting life beyond that which you know on this earth.
I depict hope in your question, “How can there be a God?” Do you truly want an answer? But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, “because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:6 For your answer you must follow me. I will teach you; allow your love of life and humanity to enable you to learn. Do not be afraid; I will not hold you against your will. This is my prayer: “that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight . . .” Phil 1:9
I did not bring forth this world’s pain and suffering, it surfaced through man’s weakness, and through his greed. “But I am forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to me.” Ps 86:5-7 I love you my child, I hear your cries! In your troubled days, as you call to me I will answer! For I so loved the world that I gave my one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. referencing John 3:16 “Therefore he (Jesus) is able to save completely those who come to me through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.” Heb. 7:25 Be silent and listen, you will hear me. For great is my love toward you; I will deliver you from the depths of the grave! I go before you and will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” referencing Deuteronomy 31:8 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt 28:20
“The poor you will always have with you and you can help them any time you want . . .” Mark 14:7 “In this world you will have trouble.” John 16:33 Know that you are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. Referencing 1 John 5:19
“A time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.” John 16:2-3 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.” John 16:12-13
Creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. Referencing Romans 8:21
I am the Alpha and the Omega, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty! Rev 1:8
I will wipe every tear from your eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. referencing Revelation 21:4
COME TO ME MY LOST AND WEARY SHEEP,
TURN YOUR EYES TO ME.
MY HEART YEARNS FOR YOU,

AS THEY EXTEND BEFORE YOU.
I SEE YOUR TEARS,
I FEEL YOUR ANGUISH,

MY TEARS FALLING ALONGSIDE YOURS
I WILL NOT FORSAKE YOU!
