Are There Shapes In The Clouds?


Over the course of my life, I have had many conversations with naysayers of religion and those who do not believe in a loving Heavenly Father. I have been told on numerous occasions that my belief in a supreme creator is based solely on emotion and on my desire to believe in something that is not real. That all I hope for, and believe in, is the stuff of fairy tales. In essence, they are telling me that I am looking for shapes in the clouds!

I do believe in ’emotion’ in all of its wonderfulness. “Emotion” gives me feelings of love, passion, desire, and yes…hope! Through emotion, I have been able to climb mountains that I thought were beyond my abilities. Through emotion, I have been able to forge rivers and valleys that scream out that they are unconquerable! And yes, through emotion, I have been able to feel the presence of the divine in my life which has enabled me to love stronger, be kinder, and be a better man by it. Why can’t a loving God communicate through my senses, including my ability to feel of His spirit through inspiration? When I combine my emotional self with my rational self, I have come to the conclusion that God is real.

So I admit that I believe in ‘shapes in the clouds’ because they are there…but only if I take the time to look for them!
