Faith

by Shushil Suman

I (human being) consider myself to have faith in the god...but still I forget to thank him when ever happiness comes to me and complain him when ever something goes wrong in my life...... My mind is always stronger than my faith....I was travelling in the car and suddenly something went wrong. I met with an accident.... the next moment I found myself hanging from a branch of a tree...when I looked down.. I was hanging over a valley.. I had no way to go.. I would fall and die... I called in for help...anybody (human being) please help me and I got no response.. I tried and tried but no help.. when I was about to give up I remembered god... I called god to help me and he was present as soon I called.. I prayed to him saying that I have faith in him and he is the only one who can save me....god was so forgiving that he forgave me for telling lie that I had faith in him (if I had faith in him I would have called him first )...

God promised to help me but asked me one promise in return....he asked me to follow his words.. his teachings...and I promised him that I would follow his words and his teachings till the end of my life..... I PROMISED...

LEAVE YOUR HAND MY SON AND I SHALL SAVE YOU...God said...

what LEAVE MY HAND FROM THE BRANCH THAT I M HOLDING ONTO.... YES MY SON...

BUT I WILL DIE IF I LEAVE MY HAND...BECAUSE THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS SAVING MY LIFE...

God disappeared....and I was still thinking that the branch is saving me ....

I kept yelling for help.. but nobody came...

Ultimately the small branch broke and I fell into the valley and died.....

It was not me but my faith that died...

I PROMISED GOD THAT I SHALL FOLLOW HIS WORDS AND HIS TEACHINGS......

But my mind was intelligent enough to decide what was good for me.....I BROKE MY PROMISE...
