::~Allah Loves Me~::


 One day, I woke up early in the
morning to watch the sunrise.
Ah, the beauty of God’s creation is beyond description.
As I watched, I praised God for the beautiful work.
As I sat there, I felt the Lord’s presence with me.

He asked me, "Do you love me ?"
I answered, "Of course God! You are my
Lord!"

Then He asked,"If you were physically
handicapped, would you stil love me ?"

I was perplexed.I looked down upon my arms, legs
and the rest of my body and
wondered how many things I wouldn’t be able to do, the things I took for
granted.
And I answered, "It would be tough Lord, but I would still love you."

Then the Lord said,"If you were blind, would
you still love my creation?"

How could I love something without being able to
see it ?
Then I thought of all the blind people in the world and how many of them still
loved God and his creation.

So I answered, "Its hard to think of it, but I would still love you."

The Lord then asked me,"If you were deaf,
would you still listen to my word ?"

How could I listen to anything, being deaf ? Then I
understand.Listening to God’s
word is not merely using our ears but our hearts.
I answered, "It would be tough but I would still listen to your
words,"

The Lord then asked,"If you were mute, would
you still praise my Name?"

How could I praise without a voice ? Then it
occured to me:God wants us to
sing from our very heart and soul. It never matters what we sound like.
So I answered, "Though I could not physically sing, I would still praise
your Name."

And the Lord asked,"Do you really love me
?"

With courage and a strong conviction, I answered boldly,"Yes Lord!
I love you because you are the one and true God!"
I thought that I had answered well,

but God asked, "Then why do you sin?"

I answered, "Because I am only human, I am not
perfect."

"Then why do in times of peace you stray the
furthest ?
And why only in times of trouble do you pray the earnest ?"

No answer. Only tears.
he Lord continued:
Why only pray at fellowships and retreats ?
Why seek me only in times of worship ?
Why ask things so selfishly?
Why ask things so unfaithfully ?

The tears continued to roll down my cheeks.
Why are you ashamed of Me ?
Why are you not spreading the good news ?
Why in times of presecution, you cry to others when I offer My shoulders to cry
on ?
Why make excuses when I give you opportunities to serve in My Name ?

I tried to answer but there was no answer to give.
"You are blessed with life.
I made you not throw this gift away.
I have blessed you with talents to serve me, but you continue to turn away.




I have revealed My word to you, but you do not gain in knowledge.
I have spoken to you, but your ears were closed.
I have shown my blessings to you, but your eyes were turned away.
I have sent you servants, but you sat idly as they were pushed away.
I have heard your prayers and I have answered them all.

Do you truly love Me ?"
I could not answer.
How could I ?
I was embarrassed beyond belief.
I had no excuse.
What could I say to this ?
When my heart had cried out, and the tears had flowed,
I said, "Please forgive me Lord.
I am unworthy to be your servant."

The Lord answered,"That is my grace, my
servant."

I asked, "Then why do you continue to forgive
me ? Why do you love me so ?"

The Lord answered, "Because you are my
creation. I will never abandon you.
When you cry, I will have compassion and cry with you.
When you shout with joy, I will laugh with you.
When you are down, I will encourage you.
When you fall, I will raise you up.
When you are tired, I will carry you.
I will be with you till the end of the days and I will love you forever."



 
Never had I cried so hard before.
How could I have been so cold.
And for the first time, I truly prayed.
