The power of faith

We go through so many good and bad instances every day. The good instances bring smiles on our faces but we seldom thank God; we tend to forget his presence at that moment, totally engrossed in the enjoyment.

On the other hand, a bad instance makes us sad and we blame God, not giving a thought to why we went through that experience.

A human being who understands the power of complete faith in God is always at peace from within and never experiences wavering thoughts.

Let me share with you an experience of a friend which can explain how positive thoughts and faith in his doings can make our lives much easier. She was in the habit of going for evening walks.

Whatever happens, she would make sure that she never missed her routine .One day, inspite of not feeling too well, she went ahead with her routine.

She completed her first round of the park and went ahead with the second with little difficulty as her legs started aching badly. After the second round, her body gave up but she still went on with her third round ignoring the inner voice which was stopping her to do so.

She must have taken a few steps of round three when a crow defecated on her from head to shoulder, spoiling her hair and clothes. She had no choice but to return home.

As she was nearing her house, she experienced extreme body pain and was unable to walk. As soon as she reached home she checked and found she had high fever and could not even stand. The next few hours were bad.

Later, when she felt better, she started thinking how God had come to her rescue in the form of a crow and prevented her falling on the roadside. It was a lesson she learnt of God’s many ways of presence.

We all come across such cases but fail to analyse and see the real meaning therein.
