Caleb: Faith

I understand how hard it is to have faith in a God you can’t physically see. Many people question whether or not he exists, and if so, for what purpose? There was a time in my past where I asked myself these very same questions. There were many more, but essentially it all boiled down to a single one — why me?

Why was I created the way I am, and others created the way they were? After all, we all have unique gifts and abilities. But at the time, I could only focus on my weaknesses and failures. I couldn’t understand why God would want such an imperfect creature.

In time, I learned that no one and no thing in this universe is perfect, including God himself. We were created with his likeness, but none of us have the same power as him. In that sense, he too is unique and alone.

Then it hit me — I am here because he wanted me to be here. He wanted my talents in order to serve others and myself. He wanted me to physically exist in this same universe with you, because he cannot.

He wanted us to be separated from him for a reason — a reason which I cannot answer. However, being separated does not have to mean being alone.

We are designed to form relationships and bonds with each other. We’re meant to experience hardships and struggles in order to properly appreciate wellness and happiness.

We function as a team, even as an archangel, we all have roles to play and live up to once we’re ready. My role is to help you to see the light and to guide you towards it.

Someday you’ll physically join it and be united with God. But until then, remember that I’m always listening and here to help.
