Why me God?
I am sure you have heard people say that. You
may have said it yourself. If God were to answer I would bet He
would say, "Because you are always saying why me."
When God put people on this earth there were not
many of them. By the time Christ came along there were only a
few hundred thousand. People then had limited knowledge.
For one thing they did not live long so they did not have time to get
real smart. Another thing is that they did not need it because
there was not a lot to know. They only counted to 40 and if
there were more than forty they just stopped at 40.
Back then God could handle the load without much
help. He could hear the prayers and I am willing to bet he had
some help. He decided he needed big time help so he decided to
have a son and train him in the business. We all know what
A little side bar here. I know a lot of you
still blame the Jews for killing Christ. Remember Christ said,
"Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." I
wasn't there so I don't know if those are the exact words but I think
that is close. I am sure God did forgive them and I think we
Christians should too. After all I don't think anybody that was
there is around now to persecute.
Back to my story.
As people started to multiply (luckily we did not
have litters of kids) People had to get smarter. God was
finding it harder and harder to keep up with all of the prayers even
with the help of his Son's buddies.
The first thing he had to do was cut down the calls
for curing the sick so he gave some people the ability to find cures
for the ill. I don't know who came up with the title Doctor and
frankly I don't care. If God did not want us to go to doctors
we would not have them.
We then had people coming up with ideas to make
things to help us do our thing. This brought on the job.
Soon we had to have people to sell the things we made. Then we
needed stores. Some time along here we needed money.
People had to count higher.
Then we had to have time off from the jobs to
rewind. The vacation industry started. The space programs
brought in the PC's. Then I am here telling you this and if you go to
my mall I will be selling you stuff.
In two thousand years we went from a few hundred
thousand people to billions. Don't you think God would like us
to cut the requests down? If I need something I do not ask
God. I do it myself. If I am sick I look inside and fight
the illness and if needed I see the doctor. If God did not want
me to see a doctor he would not have put them here.
When you are ill have faith in God but also have
faith in yourself. Fight within and you have a good chance to
beat it. Just say I am going to make it. When things get
real bad then it may be time to ask God for help and make your
promises that if He helps you will be good. Just remember if He
cures you, you better not forget your promises because He sure
When it is time to go though, it's time. Don't
be afraid. If you are basically good you will probably go to a
better place and the pain will be gone. Don't try to go before
it is time because you will not go to a better place.
I was at a party after a funeral. One person
said, “Be happy for her because she is in a better place.”
Another said she was bad and probably went straight to hell.
The first guy said that is a better place than where she was.
In the future I plan to write more for this site.
Please come back and check it out again. Even if I haven't
changed anything you may find things you missed when you reread it.
