Just when things got strange….

Forgive me for perhaps stating the obvious, but the world is going mad.
Like many of us, I have my quirks, but sometimes the world makes me look normal.

Three recent TV moments have made me ponder how strange this world is… Alien

Firstly, Miss Egg thrower on Britain’s Got Talent – She simply made herself look an idiot. To interrupt an opera duo wasn’t clever or funny by any means. I mean, if she was going to throw something, she should have waited for ‘Attraction’ to perform.
She could have made the whole thing even more british by throwing eggs behind the screen to make rain drops. Obviously. 

This was then followed by a programme about child genius’ – These kids have brain cells in places that I don’t even have places! One kid on the programme spent 50 hours a week playing chess. If I played chess for that long, I’d start to go stale….mate. (See what I did there? …Laugh anyway)

But to top off this week, I have just seen an advert for a programme titled,  ‘Confessions of an Alien Abductee’ .

This beats it all. I thought that I was quirky, but clearly I’m pretty standard compared to the world around me. Some may consider me strange for believing in God – But wait until someone tells you they have been abducted by aliens!

It’s worth a thought though….Is it strange to believe in God? Is it reasonable? Or is it plain stupid?

Well for some, it may appear stupid, but for me, it’s perfectly natural. 

My whole life, my every day, is shaped around my experience of Jesus bringing life to the very full. Through him I know purpose, happiness, direction and complete fulfilment

That’s why I believe. That’s what makes faith in God reasonable to me. It’s the experience rather than education. It’s not about believing in facts, but it’s about knowing my creator God on a personal level. 

To me, God is both ordinary & extra ordinary. God is both natural and super natural. God is present on earth & in heaven. 

Of course there are questions to be asked, of course there are doubts, but they cannot stop the opportunity to encounter God today.

In choosing to live life with God, you have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

I’d love to chat with anyone who reads this blog and feels like they are on a journey towards God. Perhaps with questions and doubts, but that’s OK.
If that’s you – Please get in touch.
