Does God Still Reside In You?

If you have countless reasons to give up,
and you still manage to hold on a little, a little, and little more,
instead of losing all hope and succumbing to the worries ,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

If you see a person cleaning the floor,
And you feel guilty for making it dirty,
instead of asserting that it’s their job,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

If you wake up to the morning sun,
And thank your Lord for granting you another day,
instead of cribbing over the piercing sunlight,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

If you see a destitute person on the road,
and it gets you thinking what life can be like,
instead of assuming that he/she is a con,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

If you are a money-minded person,
But you don’t hesitate to offer help to your people,
instead of stacking all the money for yourself,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

If your human nature tempts you into something wrong,
and you’re almost on the verge of doing it, but stop,
instead of giving in to the temptation,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in you.

If you see or hear about crimes against humanity,
and you try to stop it personally or virtually,
instead of turning a blind eye since it’s not happening to you,

Then you’re lucky- God still resides in your heart.

‘Cause you see, there are many many people out there, in whose hearts the fire of hope has long extinguished; who blatantly impose their superiority over others in spite of being created with the same Earth; who want to be granted everything but do not wish to be grateful for it; who have no inch of empathy remaining in their souls; who are greedy by nature but do not want to do anything about it; who feel no shame in becoming self-centric at all times; and who feel no remorse or regret after doing anything wrong.

So if you’re not one of these, then believe me, you are even more blessed.

And if you are, then you know where to find God and how to please Him.

  1. Nope mine died, died of the guilt and the shame, and left me here alone…….. Me with my regrets……

    Do you get so mad sometimes, that you do things you don’t intend to

    1. Yep. That comes with being human.
      But God doesn’t die, even when we have sinned or wronged someone. He is always present within. We just stop feeling His presence when we’re too grounded with guilt.
