Keeping Faith Alive

Real life situations are sometimes so bitter that they consume all the carefully nurtured faith down to its roots.

I have closely watched the Zimbabwean situation. I have interacted with my friends in Zimbabwe. Now in India, I am closely watching the status of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. Heart rendering [sic].

I bleed in my heart seeing the photos of the burnt homes, sexually violated girls and women, child soldiers handling weapons with their tender hands! All such situations are tsunamis that could drown our faith in God. Where am I supposed to find God's healing hands in such situations?

The question we need to ask ourselves is not 'Is God Dead?'; rather - "Is my faith Alive?"
