TRUST IN GOD is one of the more important aspects of health.  Stress and worry, uncertainty for the future and trying to live in an increasing hostile world are all militating against our best health and happiness.  While our choices do make a big impact on our health, at the end of the day there is more we cannot control than that which we can.  Fear, worry  and uncertainty all tend to wear out the life forces and undermine our health and happiness.


There are several factors to be considered here:  If there is no God who cares for us and created us with a purpose, then nothing really matters and we might as well die. To follow the logic through to its conclusion, we are just so much matter in motion, and the law of evolution is that the strong live and the weak die. Social injustice, slavery, abuse of basic human rights--every form of debasement and oppression are legitimate means to the ends of the powerful or well organized. The experiments of the last century with this philosophy by the Nazi and Communist political/military machines have given us much tangible evidence of the fallacy of this premise.  People are important--you are important.  Your life makes a difference, you were created with a purpose. 


The evidences of Intelligent Design all around us tell our senses that there is a Divine Intelligence behind this universe.  The immutable laws of nature are, in fact, laws of this Creator Who has given us this life.  Cooperating with the laws that control our being bring a blessing; disregarding them will have inevitable negative results.  Beyond that we all need help that is outside of our power or ability.  How do we deal with the problems, both personal and cooperate, that plague our lives?  How do we find peace within the framework of future uncertainty and present conflict?

While the answers to these questions are varied and differing depending on who one may speak to, we’d like to suggest that the corporate, intelligently reasoned, and experienced, conclusion of millions throughout the thousands of years of mankind’s history is that there is a loving Creator, and He wants to be part of our lives in a personal and caring way.


Don’t take my word for it--experiment yourself:  Talk to Him. 


Prayer is something that doesn’t cost anything; it’s simply talking to your Creator as to a friend:  Ask Him to reveal Himself.  Ask Him to help and guide  in your life.  God respects your free will, He will never intrude unwanted into your life; but He wants to be your friend to help and support you.  He created us for relationship with Himself, and He hasn’t changed His mind—He’s committed to us as individuals if we will just let Him into our lives.

In the ancient Scriptures, the prophet tells us:


The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying:
"Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you…”
Jeremiah 31:3


The Creator also makes this promise to His children:

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye.
Psalms 32:8


 We are also given this invitation:


Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28


Simplistic?  Childish?  Unscientific?

Or the most magnanimous and wonderful offers ever made?


How can we know?  Ask God to reveal Himself to you.  What can you loose?  If He isn’t there, you’ve lost nothing—but if He is you’ve gained everything.
