I saw 2 messages this morning that I thought about for the rest of the day. The first was a short video talking about what happens if you say you don’t believe in God. You would then become the master of yourself – you are your own God. You would have to always be right and your thinking would be the only thing that matters. We know this isn’t true. We know that our actions affect those around us – good or bad. In the civilized world we have laws that try to protect people from the hurtful actions of those around us. More than that, we recognize that we are a part of something much bigger than ourselves. We can see this in the inspiring beauty of nature, the birth of a child, the awesomeness of the uncontrollable weather. The second message was a quote:
“When people are empty of Christ, a thousand and one other things come and fill them up; jealousies, hatred, boredom, melancholy, resentment, a worldly outlook, worldly pleasures. Try to fill your soul with Christ so that it’s not empty.” St. Porphyrios.
I Found God today in a reminder of the need for Him to be in my life.
