Genesis Chapter 1

The Book of Genesis

Simple things are the hardest to fathom, and it is quite clear from the first chapter of the Bible from the Old Testament.

It has taken thousands of years for mankind to understand and acknowledge the simplest idea as that for everything there is a creator. Science defies the simple by calling it a religious scripture and believes makes us believe that millions of years ago “Big Bang” happened and thus originated our world. Since the theory is complicated, it is accepted quite unquestionably.

Well, it is an unending debate and one has the free will to choose either of it to be true.I am beginning my journey with the simple faith of believing in my Creator and His Word.

Read Genesis Chapter 1, and know the simplest answer to how this beautiful world came into existence.

Why have doubts when you have entered in a relationship with God!

Solution to strengthening our relationship with God

I asked this question when I shared with my guide and mentor the fact that this Lent season I am trying to be the prodigal son who has returned. I said that I am not sure if:

  • I would be able to last the 40 days
  • be a good Christian
  • follow all the Commandments
  • be truthful to myself
  • leave the vices of the world and
  • truly be the person who loves and adores God

And he said, “Why have doubts when you have entered in a relationship with God?”

These words stuck me and all the doubts disappeared like the dark clouds on a sunny day. I am here today willingly to be God’s. I am aware that there are going to be challenges and I will fail, but that will not stop me in believing what I have always believed. The faith that has lasted this long will take me through it and the God so ever loving will guide me through it.

Saying NO was my strongest weakness and in just few days I have practiced saying it so much that I have started to acquire a new self confidence and strength within. I know you might say it is the beginner’s luck, probably few days back I would have agreed with you. But certainly not today, why you ask; it is because that I am with the ‘Miracle Worker’ now. I have prayed and read my Bible, being with the One who can make the mountains move just with the minutest of faith in our hearts, is the best feeling one can experience.

I am reminded of few lines which I had heard, “The greatest treasures are not gold, nor jewels, nor works of art. They cannot be held in your hands. They’re held within your heart. The worldly things will fade away as seasons come and go. But the treasure of true relationship will never lose its glow.”

The word “if” has no room when we are in a relationship with God.  Just enter, believe, pray and God will guide you and be there for you forever and ever.
