The Depths Of Despair
Updated: Aug 7, 2020
When things go well, we always give ourselves the credit
And when things go bad, we blame God or someone or something.
The greatest gift man has been endowed
Is the gift of free will
The ability to choose how we respond to any given situation.
So perhaps all the wars, the pain, the suffering -
Perhaps this is man doing mans will.
Perhaps it’s us we should be blaming.
Perhaps mankind has lost his way,
Completely divorced himself from all that is just and good.
But what kind of a God would allow such suffering?
Well, perhaps the kind of God that respects our individual sovereignty.
One who respects our right to choose for ourselves the path we want to walk.
Our right to exercise our own will or indeed choose to surrender it to something much greater
To something better, something timeless and perfectly just.
You see, without this ability to choose, Love itself simply could not exist.
Because Love expressed in relationship needs to be entered into voluntarily
