Issues of Life

If I Didn’t Believe In God

The only constant that has been in my life is God.  The only way I’ve been able to navigate this world is believing that He was right beside me.  The many times I’ve thought of giving up, it was His love that stopped me.

He is truly my best friend.  My help.  My joy.  My counselor.  My everything.

With Him by my side, I can endure anything.  I know I have a purpose as long as I believe in Him.  That my life will have impact and meaning.  That I would achieve more with His strength than I would with mine alone.

I have never seen Him.  But I’ve perceived Him.  In my dreams, He ministers to me.  When I’m awake, He counsels me.  When I’m selfish, He challenges me.  Through it all, He is my dependable companion and confidant.

So the mere thought that He is not real is as frightening to me as the sudden realisation that I have stepped off a cliff – for certainly, He is all that has sustained me.  The idea that He does not exist cannot begin to make sense to me.  Because one thing I know, nothing is worth it without Him.  Nothing means anything without Him.

Love is the most desirable thing in this whole world.  Yet, what would love be without Him?  Is it the romantic affair that hits the rocks and crashes?  Is it a family that falls apart in trials and conflict?  Is it the conditional love of a social worker, who moves away to a new town?  Is it the best friend who lets you down when you needed her the most?

There is no sustainable love in this world, without His touch.  There is no hope without His grace.  There is no joy, without His design.  Through Him, all things were created, and without Him, nothing was made (John 1:3).  Everything was made through Him and for Him (Col 1:16).

If I didn’t believe in God, there would be no me.  Take it all away.  Take my life.  As long as God is, my hope is sure.

  1. Beautifully expressed, Ufuoma!

    The existence of God is comforting. The reassurance of his presence surrounds us in the darkest pit. I am thankful for this inspiration today. God be with you.

  2. Beautifully expressed. I feel the same way about knowing God. I can’t imagine what life would be like without the knowledge of his presence; can’t imagine what I will be without him. But I do know that everytime I feel disconnected by virtue of sin, things just plain fall apart. Phew thank God for revealing himself to me; to us 🙂

    Nice meeting you, Ufuoma.

    • Hi Uju! Thanks for visiting my blog. I found yours through your friend Arch… He said he’d had exchanges with you too. We’ve been dialoguing on my post: Let The Litttle Children Come To Me.

      I’m glad you like this and we can connect! Lovely sentiments in your comment too. It’s nice to meet you too 🙂
