title : WHAT IF GOD WAS ONE OF US?
WHAT IF GOD WAS ONE OF US?

An anonymous person once questioned me about the existence and supremacy of GOD.

I was standing in the CORRIDOR of the school, when suddenly this person bumped me and held me tightly in my arms. I was a bit shocked, Do I Even Know this Man? Memories were playing around my head hoping i could remember this young man, but my mind couldn't seem to recognize his. As i was trying to escape, the hold got tighter. I felt i couldn't grasp anymore some air!

This person suddenly spoke his words!
"IF GOD IS SO FLIPPING GREAT, WHY DOES HE MAKE ALL THIS SHIT HAPPEN?"

I was really stunned by his question, but as i looked in his eyes, his tears were about to surge. I looked deeply in it and able to see how good this person is. I can see the sincerity and chastity in his mind.

That time, i already don't know what am i going to do. But my mouth just spoken words not under my control. I can't even recognize if it was either my MIND or my HEART was the one speaking its thought.

After my words. I felt the slowly unfastening hold in my arms. I stared scrutinizely in the man but i can see him gradually disappearing in front of me.

The wind blows, the sun blazes and the leaves fall from every dancing trees. It reminds me suddenly about the words i have said to that young man.

"IF GOD GAVE US EVERYTHING, WHAT WOULD WE BE LIKE? Imagine how a son is like when his Father gives him a comfortable and carefree life and imagine how a son is like if his father gave him obstacles to make him grow stronger.If no one needed help, none of us will learn how to help others.If we never had any dangers, we would never learn how to survive.If we never suffered, we will never know compassion...

...What God is´╗┐ thinking, we may not understand in our lifetime, but his thinking bout us..!"

The phrases i spoken echoed in my mind and suddenly.... I was awaken by a song i can hear while i am sounding sleep. Then i realize it was just a dream. A DREAM that reminds me
HOW GOD LOVES HUMANITY.

Here is the lyrics of the song, ONE OF US.

(click the title ONE OF US to hear it)

If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

1-And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see if, seeing meant
That you would have to believe in things like heaven
And in Jesus and the saints, and all the prophets?
(repeat 1, 1)

Back up to heaven all alone
No, nobody calling on the phone
No, just tryin' to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
