Dear God : How do I know you exist?
GOD : My child, you were surrounded by love from the moment that you were born. Who do you think put all the right people at the right times in your life....?
but God, what about the people who caused me pain and tears?
GOD : What about the lessons I tried to teach you through them? Would you have learnt from Amar Chitra Katha?
I understand God, but what about the times I have lost miserably, cried inconsolably and bled profusely in my life?
GOD : Dear child, how would you ever know the pleasure of winning, or the warmth of a hug or the comfort of sleep without these? And how do you think the sun comes out every morning, even if you thought the night would never end?
Hmmmm..... but God, why was I oh so lonely in some of the darkest moments of my life? Why were You not there with me?
GOD (smiling with the patience only He can have): Oh my dear child, how you have misunderstood My ways.... every dark moment in your life only brought you closer to Me. In the dark, you could not see, not understand your path. Yet you found the right path... do you really think you could have done that all ALONE?
I understand now, God. And sorry I forgot to thank You - for the sun coming out every single day, for the people who walk in and out of my life as if it were a rehearsed skit; for the relief that comes when I think of You watching over me.
