I once knew God personally.
When I was a child he lived very closeby to me. Yes God had a physical form. I didn't realize how extremely fortunate I was; I was only a kid, I
didn't know then that its very unusual to know God on an everyday basis.
A lot of people believe that God is stern and judgmental but I never saw any indication of that; I never saw God smite anyone, or even say an unkind
God was always trying to teach me stuff but I was kind of a bouncy kid--what they call hyperactive these days--and so God kept the lessons short, we
spent most of our time together playing, rolling around in the grass and watching bugs go about their business and just laughing a lot. We had so much
Then one day without warning God moved away, no one knew where; there was no forwarding address. I just woke up one morning and God was gone. I was
heartbroken and I cried and cried and couldn't stop.
After that life seemed less vibrant. I kept hoping God would come back and I would search everywhere and ask everyone if they'd seen God around, but
no one knew even what I was talking about.
Then one day someone told me "God is dead" and this made me incredibly depressed for years and years. I did everything I could to not think about it
to no avail. But I stopped searching because what was the point if God was dead.
Many years later I told my sad tale of losing my friend God to somebody, and they said "You've got it all backwards as usual, its that rumormonger
Nietzsche that started spreading that story. But God isn't dead, its Nietzsche thats dead." I was SO happy to hear this, I didn't know
whether to laugh or cry or jump up and down so I did all three.
Then I started searching for God again but the trail had gone quite cold. I was determined though and sometimes I'd hear that God had passed through
a town awhile before, and a few times I met people who I could tell had seen God or even been touched by God, its very obvious when you meet a person
like that, if you know what to look for.
And then someone told me that God can take any form and sometimes God takes a little break and hangs out for awhile in a tree or even a rock, because
its tough job being God, God gets blamed for a lot of stuff that is totally caused by people, you know free will and all. But God is always there for
everyone and will get in touch with anyone who desires such, you just need to know how to ask and more importantly how to listen. Even people who
don't believe in God, although thats tricky since they're not likely to ask God to contact them.
And God is always helping out here and there 24/7, can you imagine what a tough job that is. And most people don't even take notice.
So now I try to help out where I can, just on the little jobs of course, I figure that way maybe it will free up a little of God's time & maybe then
we could have a visit here and there. I know I can't expect to monopolize God's time like before and now I understand how unbelievably lucky I was,
what did I ever do to deserve to spend so much quality time with God?
So why I am telling you all this? Well, I figure maybe someone or even a few people would like to help out God too with the little jobs, I know you
all know what I'm talking about, just help people out where you can and don't expect anything back, thats what God does and boy are we lucky because
if God expected to get a fair return for everything we'd all be screwed, just look around at all the awful things people do and you'll know thats
not God's work.
