The Way I See It…

The Way I See It #247

Why in moments of crisis do we ask God for strength and help? As cognitive beings, why would we ask something that may well be a figment of our imaginations for guidance? Why not search inside ourselves for the power to overcome? After all, we are strong enough to cause most of the catastrophes we need to endure.

–Bill Scheel
Starbucks Customer from London, Ontario. He describes himself as a “modern day nobody.”

Apparently Mr. Scheel has never really been in a crisis where he felt hopeless. Where mere human strength and perserverance weren’t enough. Perhaps he’s never had a child with Cancer or been caught up in depression or a debilitating addiction. I feel sorry for Bill and others like him who have never been broken to the point that they had to cry out to something greater than themselves.

Everyday I see things in this world that make God real to me. I challenge those people who don’t believe in God to prove that he doesn’t exist, because from my vantage point, everything is screaming out that he does.
