Few days back, I found an old friend online. It's more than two years years since we met. So we had a lot to talk about.
Old memories were revived, all smiles and laugh, and then all of a sudden, she asked Do you believe in god ? I was surprised, What kind of question is that ? Off course I do. I am a firm believer in god. But Why this question out of nothing? I asked. Nothing, actually past few months many things happened in my life, so now I really doubt if god really exist. I was more than shocked. I had never seen her so low. Once lively and straight-forward, I remember how we used to sit and chat long in tea break, we were never short of stories.
But when she said that, probably I understood what she really meant. From past several months she is staying alone in US for a job assignment and faced few problems there. Few months back when I too was at onsite in Europe, there were times when I too felt a bit lonely and disturbed. I had shared my thoughts with her, and she had consoled me. Well later I kept my mind busy in things and rescued myself. But at that point one thing that helped me was spirituality.
In bad times when many find solace in prayers, there are some who loose belief in God. I think that during bad times nothing could be more dangerous than losing faith. All we look for is a support and prayers can give us strength and a moral support that save us from breaking down.
And when you pray to God, somehow you get that unknown feeling that He will make things fine. And yes HE WILL MAKE THINGS FINE.
