違和感②「神さまはあなたが耐えられないような試練は課さない」への違和感

神様でも仏様でもよいのですが、これってなんだかイヤなやつだなあ、と思います。人間に試練を課して自分は観客席から見ているみたいで。そんな神様&仏様あてにする気にゃなりません。

多くの方が私に指さしてくれた存在はちょっと違う。順風のときも逆風のときも共にいる。

人間さんの方も辛い、とか耐えられるか、耐えられないかなんて考えてる時点で余力がある、まだヒマ。考えてるヒマがあったら動き続けるべし、淡々と取り組み続けるべし。その結果カミサマと一緒に行き倒れになっても一興。元気でいても、倒れていてもカミと共にあれば至福という境地を目指したいもんです。250px-Michelangelo_pietà_rondanini

Footprints by Mary Fishback Powers

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most,
You would leave me.”

He whispered,
“My precious child, I love you and will never leave you.
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”
