May: Faith

Beginning of May, I was put into the situation of making choice regards to work; as they always said Life is all about making choices. Choices given were great, of course each have it's pro and cons.

I keep seeking God for the path and so I recalled back the conversations that day; the idea came. And decision were made.

Today I came across the below article from a blog while doing my research and I really like the article. The word FAITH have been in my head and heart during the choices. So I decided to share this article in my post.


Famous Sufi story: On Faith

A man just got married and was returning home with his wife. THEY WERE CROSSING A LAKE IN A BOAT when suddenly a great storm arose.
The man was a warrior, but the woman became very much afraid because it seemed almost hopeless: THE BOAT WAS SMALL AND THE STORM WAS REALLY HUGE, and any moment they were going to be drowned. But the man sat silently, calm and quiet, as if nothing was happening.

The woman was trembling and she said, “ARE YOU NOT AFRAID? This may be our last moment of life! It doesn’t seem that we will be able to reach the other shore. Only some miracle can save us;
otherwise death is certain. Are you not afraid? Are you mad or something? Are you a stone or something?” 

more puzzled: What he was doing? Then he brought the naked sword close to the woman’s neck
– so close that just a small gap was there, it was almost touching her neck. He said, “ARE YOU AFRAID?” She started to laugh and said, “WHY I SHOULD BE AFRAID? If the sword is in your hands, why I should be afraid? I know you love me.” 

He put the sword back and said, “This is my answer. I KNOW GOD LOVES ME, and the sword is in his hands, and the storm is in his hands –SO WHATSOEVER IS GOING TO HAPPEN IS
GOING TO BE GOOD. If we survive, good; if we don’t survive, good – because everything is in his hands and he cannot do anything wrong.”

THIS IS THE TRUST ONE NEEDS TO IMBIBE. Such tremendous trust is capable
of transforming your whole life. And ONLY such tremendous trust is
capable of transforming your life — less than that won’t do.


Have faith that God will guide us to each other too.
