Who’d a thunk formspring would be such a great resource for questions for my blog?
My anonymous formspringer [who I am assuming is the same person from before] posted another question for me to answer, and I actually think it will be a bit of a challenge for me to answer, but I will sincerely try my hardest.
Why are there starving and sick people in this world? If everyone has a specific plan and purpose by God, whats theirs? – answer in blog please 🙂
[btw I don’t know why the font comes up larger when I copy and paste it, but it does smh.]
It makes me feel horrible when I think about all the people in the world who need something, whether it be tangible or intangible, and I know I can do nothing for them. Some people need to feel like someone loves them, some people need someone to believe in them, and some people lack the basic substances needed for their survival.
But when I also think about this situation, I also think about the fact that I’m sitting on my butt sipping an arizona iced tea and although I feel bad when I think about these people, I have done absolutely nothing in my life to help one of them. That is beyond donating old clothes that I honestly didn’t care about anymore. If you really care about those people who are starving them GO OUT AND HELP THEM!
It is our duty, not only as Christians, but as humans, to do everything we can to help those in need. Because God had given us free will, because we have the ability to sin and make choices, imperfection is inevitable. People WILL be hurt if they have no love in their family, or not enough money for food, or even if someone simply wrongs them.
I truly believe that God has a purpose in our lives and that things are never as it appears. The people I feel are most blessed are people like me, I was born into my faith and because of that I KNOW the truth. All I can do is spread this message and hope to help these people in whatever way I can.
I know it seems horrible that some people are starving but I KNOW they have a purpose, maybe a purpose I don’t understand or truly know just yet, or maybe they do not know. Our lives here are just a second of eternity and even though I don’t always understand his ways I will still praise God [I copied that from a song, I’ll put it at the end].
I hope I was able to somewhat answer your question, and please feel free to ask anymore. At the end of the day all we can do it try to the very person we can be and maybe, just maybe, we can help someone in need.
See you tomorrow,
**If you want I can try to find ways that my bloggers can help out people in need, whether it be sending food or trying to go on mission trips.
