"There Is A God"

Nothing bothers me more than people who 'say' they have such strong beliefs but later on these are the first people who change their so called 'beliefs' over the smallest, most mindless things.  I've never believed that statement more than I do today.  Not because I had such a cleansing Sunday but I think it's more of an homage to the way I was raised.  I am a proud full-blooded Italian.  With being this way, I say it like it is.  Unfortunately, I'm not saying I'm a...(You know what)...but what I am saying is that I always want to be a positive person but I have an extremely difficult time censoring myself.  (That's why I created this blog)  I was raised to be grateful, to be appreciative, and not expect any handouts...just give everything your all and hope for the best.  Thus, I'm thankful for learning how to say 'Thank You."  Unfortunately, not everyone was taught this way.

Unless you do not have the gift of sight, no matter what type of hardship you are going through, there is no way that you can deny what is encompassing you.  Anyway that someone can deny that, in my eyes, they are denying God.  Believe me, in the end, everything comes full circle.  Unfortunately, myself included, it takes having something taken away from you to make you realize all that you have.      

Anyways, I know what strong beliefs I have, therefore, I just don't understand how others don't believe.  Realistically, everyone has their own belief systems and I'm not saying my way IS the only right way, but at the end of the day...and this life, "There Is A God."  Sitting in that church pew today, listening to the man who taught me how to 'give my voice to God,' play "How Great Thou Art" on the piano, I was reminded of this song.

This song is the type that after the first listen, you instantly know it and remember it.  It some research to find out exactly who wrote it and when it was released, which actually it was completely overlooked (as are most amazing songs,) today I think it's important to include these incredible lyrics in this blog.

"There Is A God"

Try and put your arms around
the 100 year old tree
Climb up on a horse
and let it run full speed
Take a look down at the world from 30,000 feet
on your next flight

Watch a flock of birds
against the morning sun
Close your eyes and listen
to the river run
Catch a firefly in your hand
or a raindrop on your tongue
That's right

There is a God
There is a God
There is a God
How much proof do you need?

Plant a seed and see
what comes out of the ground
Find the heartbeat on your baby's ultrasound
In a few years hear it laughing,
and don't it sound like a song?

Stop and think about
what you don't understand
Things like life and love
and how the world began
Hear the doctor say he can't explain it,
but the cancer is gone

There is a God
There is a God
There is a God
How much proof do you need?

Science says it's all just circumstance
Like this whole worlds just an accident
But if you want to shoot that theory down,
Look around

Just look around

There is a God
There is a God
There is a God,
How much proof do you need?

Oh there is a God
There is a God
There is a God
How much proof do you need?
