If you have him, you have everything.
People always say that the one thing that cannot be taken away from you by any person is your “Faith”, your “Dignity” or your “Integrity”. True faith is not something invested in humanity of any sort; so yes, no man can take this away from you…
Integrity and Dignity on the other hand, definately can be taken from you. I have seen it happen; and it is one of the most heart-wrenching things that any person can witness.
Dignity is far come and fair short in todays society – and this totally sucks. People have forgotten their principals, and they now rely on their ability to be a hardass and a liar; they push aside their humanity and feeling. Personally, i have no idea how anyone could become this type of human being. Are they just oblivious?!
It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there kids.
A particular instance comes to mind; and i remember what it felt like to witness the brokeness of someone who had been chewed up and spat out by the inhumanity of the world. I looked upon this person, and i just cried. Do people recover from this type of ’emotional rape’??
How could i ever survive without God? How could i ever go out into the world each day without knowing God is walking beside me? For those of you who do not know this comfort, i feel sorry for you; i really really do. To know that the ‘somebody’ who created the universe walks beside you – is an amazing feeling. I know it sounds a silly and surreal notion – but just think… imagine.
How could I, as a mere human, orchestrate anything as powerful or mysterious as what God is capable of. If he holds the universe in the palm of his hand – what match to him am I?
I am broken and my bones are brittle. I am easliy hurt, I am easily scarred and I am fragile; as is every human. What does it take for a human to die? Nothing at all; a piece of metal moving too fast, a common illness that attacks our immune system, a sharp object, gravity, fire… almost nothing at all. In a split second we can be crushed. God however, is not fragile. He is our strength.We are so small, yet he is so big.
It is so comforting to know that God, the creator, is on my team. On the other hand, for those people that i love that do not know God; it scares me. If God is for me, who then can be against me?
I have cared for people who have had their dignity and integrity ripped from their hands; and I have seen them try to pull themselves back together. If you have God, you have everything and every strength. If your dignity and integrity is God, and if God will never leave you, how then can your dignity and integrity be taken from you? God is persistant, and he holds on. It’s not a case of whether we let him go; because he will never let us go.
If you don’t have God, you have nothing. If you have God, you have everything. I would highly recomend him.
