In a society that is mainly focused on science where does God fit in? Prior to the pandemic people were already turning to science to fix anything and everything that they found wrong within their lives, or the lives of others. It is my belief that God has created us so wonderfully that we are able to have the intellect to create things to help us in life. (i.e., science). But this isn’t about my belief, I want to ask you about yours. Now that science has taken a huge part in “fixing” the fear that was put into us all by the pandemic….is God still a thought in your mind? Do you hold your belief more or less than before the pandemic? Have you really looked at the facts deep enough to see the truth, and ask the question? There are conspiracy theorists, media tricks, and radical believers in many forms so you need to be cautious and leery of so much these days, but what do you truly believe? Have you stopped to think about whether people with more money than you have made decisions for you by how they present something? Let’s be honest, no matter how high up on the money chain you are…there is someone higher, craftier, and can do more. What can keep you from falling prey to those manipulative tactics?
Have you taken a moment each day to think about how God stepped in before something awful happened in your life? We have all had those moments of “coincidence” keeping us safe: sending us in a different direction causing us to meet someone that became important in our lives, forcing us to be late to an area that ended up having a crash that we could’ve been in the middle of, losing a job only to end up with a better one, turning anything that was meant to be bad into something wonderful. Do you believe in coincidence?
While you are listening to your podcasts, meditating to music, or drinking your coffee….do you have God in your mind and/or heart? Everyday more and more I see large corporations selling us products for wellness…. but where is God? Meditate they say…. but when you empty your mind…what is filling it directly after? They forgot to tell you that part before you began. Have you asked yourself why you have so much stress? Are you trying to keep up with the fast-paced environment, and material goods that are being pushed on you? Have you learned to let things go because you are so great and powerful, or do you know that God (or something bigger than you) is great and powerful and look to that source? What brings you peace and happiness? Don’t forget to ask the next question! Are the things that you just chose good and healthy for you, or will they cause in you and your body more stress in the long run? We need to follow our thoughts, think ahead, and stop following the first thing that is being sold to us. Ask why, seek more, and be curious. We were made with incredible intelligence. Keeping it simple is good…. when you know you have done your part and leave the rest to God, otherwise it is “simply careless”.
So….have you thought about it? Science, God, or both? Think it through.
