There was a time when I did not understand God. I did not know Him as I do now. I was in my teens then and, although I had received a religious education, I was struggling with life. Why were others happy? Why did other people seem to be enjoying life and not being lonely? I asked myself: What was I doing here in this life? What is the purpose of it all? I knew I was not measuring up to my religion’s standards. I felt that, perhaps God was not paying attention or not caring at all for me. But, I began praying; asking God that if He does exist, to hear me, to be with me, to forgive me, to give me a chance to be with Him forever, to make me happy, to help me so that I can help others. I knew that this life was full of disappointment, hatred and unfairness. I did not know this song below at that time, but I readily would identify with it then – and still do to this day.
