Jewish-Palestinian Israel - An Opportunity to Prove the Existence of God
This has been a constant presence in the news since I can remember from childhood. Over the years as I have watched the news on this conflict, I have always felt a since of hopelessness and sadness for all involved. I have a very strong faith and belief in God. With such a strong faith it's hard to believe that this historical event would be such a hopeless situation. I believe that God has a plan, we just have to allow him to be in the driver's seat. We have to have acceptance of the situation around us and allow people to be who they are, people. We are all his children. We all have the same capability to act on our fears. We all have the same ability to stop and make a decision to act on faith instead of our fear. We are the same. Even with different beliefs, Gods, religions, ethnicities, color of skin, male or female, we are all human beings who want to be loved, accepted, and be happy living life the way we are.
Having said that, keeping that in the forefront of our minds there will be a way to resolve this conflict. I started thinking the first most important thing of all is that all human beings involved in this conflict can agree on one thing and that one thing is what gives the situation hope!
Israel is holy land!! From this one point of agreement, there can be a peaceful solution. God does have a plan. Try as we might to live out our own plans, they will always lead to conflict within us and in our lives around us. God's plan does not. God's plan is the one that leads us to a peaceful life, living with others and loving them the way God made them.
To the Jewish and Palestinian people I would just like to say, God has given you an opportunity to prove that you are both his children. That you can rise above this, stop killing, find peace and prove to the world that with faith in God, miracles can and do happen. You are both such strong people, that have endured enough throughout the centuries; it's time to allow yourselves and your future some peace. I know it can happen!! You can find a way, to live together, work together, accept each other and show the world what it truly means to have empathy for another and accept that you are both children of God. We need to stop fighting each other, stop killing each other, we are all brothers and sisters in the eyes of our father. Can you imagine how painful it would be to watch your children kill and hurt each other?
You are a people of God. You have strength in your unity and commitment. You have persistence and creativity. You have both overcome so many obstacles. Use these God given abilities to rise above and show the world that you can accomplish and overcome anything with faith and dependence on God.
Let's focus on finding solutions!
Can they find a peaceful solution?
Do you have faith that the people of Israel can find a peaceful solution with the help of God.
A Moment in Peace in the Holy Land
