Hello everyone..๐Ÿ™‹
Just felt like sharing some Weekend Gyaan.. ( Sanskrit word for knowledge)
My mom used to tell me the following story and I always followed and try to still followย  it especially when I find myself in situations of helplessness and where I had to muster up courage to carry on things on my own make my own decisions, with just a silent prayer to God to help me accomplish it and guide me.
I am sure most of myย  friends here have heard it too, but just thought il share it with you all.
( Pardon my lingo at the end, just changed it to have some fun)

There was this person, a villager ๐Ÿ‘ณ who was caught up inย  floods.
He climbed onto the roof of his house ๐Ÿก and kept praying to God to rescue him.๐Ÿ™

One Boat ๐Ÿšค arrived filled with people they had rescued . The boatman ๐Ÿšฃ ย told the villager to climb onto the boat.
The villager refused and told the boatmanย  “No no, I won’t come, God is there, He will save me!! ”

image

The water level kept rising. ๐ŸŒŠ
Another rescue boat came by, the villager again refused saidย  the same thing “No no, God will rescue me”
The water level rose drastically, another boat came by and our God loving/fearing villager repeatedย  the same dialogue. ๐Ÿ™‡

image

Finally the water level rose beyond rescue and he drowned in it. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

image

Thereafter, when he went to heaven he met God and told Him..

image

“O Almighty, you are omnipotent and omnipresent, I kept waiting for you to come and rescue me, but you did not come at all,ย  what’sย  the use of having faith in you,ย  when you are not present to help your children.”
God cooly replied ( let’s make it the modern lingo of mine)

image

๐Ÿ˜‡ “Dude I did come, but you did not recognize me, I did try to protect and save you, I sent help not once nor twice but thrice in the form of rescue boats but you were hell bent on me coming in person and helping you which isn’t possible so it’s your loss baby! ”

So.. moral of the story??!! ๐Ÿ‘€
God helps those who help themselves??!!๐Ÿ‘‰ ๐Ÿ‘ณ ๐Ÿ‘ˆ The saying makes sense now!!
God won’t come in person andย  HELP!! NOPE!! He is no Iron man or Batman, that he willย  come and eliminate the trouble makers in our lives.๐Ÿ™…
He will create occasions andย  situations for us to use and benefit ourselves,ย  which most of the time we fail to see andย  learn..so thats my story..
I am sure all of us have beenย  through similar situations where a decision made by us, taking a chance has turned out positive andย  fruitful.
Maybe that’s God’sย  way of indirectly helping us.
Do you agree my friends??
Have a great weekend.. ๐Ÿ™‚
