God who?

Alleged “impossibilities” are opportunities for our capacities to be stretched.
— Charles R. Swindoll

For many years I struggled with my spirituality.  I was a victim so I blamed God for my troubles.  Then when I was told to go to God for help it freaked me out!  My sponsor was an Irish Christian Brother and I remember one day I told him that I was having trouble with my concept of God, I could not believe the chair, or the clock, or any object could be my higher power as I had heard others say in the rooms.  It was more difficult for me to believe that there was no God then to believe there is God.  I simply couldn’t fathom the theory that the world began and rushed endlessly nowhere.

I had such deep thoughts!  As I was attempting to express this to him he quickly looked me in the eye and said, “knock it off Danny, you know there is a God and who God is”!  I never forgot that event.  When I begin to doubt I think about that quick conversation.  I also remember my second sponsor telling me the “faith without doubt is not faith”!  Today there are times that I question my belief and my motive, but I always come back to those two pearls!

Go, Go, Go…
