Last night I went to see an amateur dramatics show of Godspell, which my Nana and my youngest cousin took part in. We actually realised that last year my Grandmother had been a part of the acting group for ten years! Good on you Nana.Godspell to me was about Jesus leading the disciples by the telling parables (stories) on how to lead their lives. I thought that it was a great production and has really opened my eyes to a few things that I should be doing in my life. The only thing I didn’t like about the play was the ending, this is when Jesus was crucified and died. I was kind of hoping that it would continue onto him being resurrected, but I guess that wasn’t in the script.
The main stories from it were, love God with all your heart and love thy neighbour whatever your opinion or feeling towards them. I personally pray to God every night, unless I fall asleep during the middle of it, which happens fairly regularly, however my prayers very rarely change so he should know them by now! However, loving thy neighbour is proving harder to achieve.
When you hear all the things on the news about people killing each other or the amount of hate that there is, it seems to be nearly impossible. However, I think that if each of us did one action everyday to help someone, anyone, that the world would slowly become a better and more peaceful place. I do try to do something everyday to help other people.
Doing things for other people is hard, especially if you don’t get anything back, but at the end of the day, it is your conscious that you have to answer to, no one else’s.
I am not trying to preach God to you, nor would I try, to me He is someone I can put all my problems onto and gives me strength to continue into the following day. I don’t think I could ever stop praying to him as that would be a massive thing for me. I tell God that I love him every night, and I hope that he will answer my prayers, protect my family and give us all the strength that we need. I also don’t think that it is a question of whether he is real or not, I feel that he looks after me and my family and he provides comfort that I cannot find through life itself.
I hope you have liked this blog post, I am interested in what you will write in comments, but no nastiness please as this is a happy place on the internet.
Remember be brave, be happy, be kind, be you!
See you next time…
