Why DO I Believe In God?
Catherine Lennon – September 4, 2007
God has done an incredible amount for me in my life. He caught me when I fell, and he held me up when I felt like I couldn't support myself anymore. He kept the walls from crashing in on me and He gave me my talent; and the world that inspires me and that takes my breath away. He loved me when I loved no one. He cared for me when I thought no one was there. He believed in me when no one else did. When I gave up, He took over and helped me through it all. He believed in me, when I barely believed in Him.
I think I believe in God because I spent so much time trying to live without Him. Eventually in my time of extreme need, I began to break, and I felt like I couldn't carry the cross that was set on my shoulders. Finally, I began praying again frantically and constantly. I felt like God was absent to me, like there couldn't possibly be a God if I was going through what I was going through, but I look back and realize that He was right there the entire time. The problem was not that He wasn't there... He was being blocked by the horrible thoughts, the impudence of the Devil, and my own insolence. I didn't even realize what I was doing. I didn't talk to anyone but God. I resorted to music, which helped bring me back to God. I couldn't really explain why or how I believe in God, because it isn't something concrete, and it isn't something tangible. The reason why I believe in God is because He believes in me. My reason is Love...
