THE BIG IF

If our body is made of 90% water and 10% flesh; If all creation needs water to survive; If it takes moving water to create electricity; If current is needed for light; If God is the Light of the world; If electricity is a current we can not see; If we reap the benefits of electricity; If God is a spirit and flows through us and all creation; Then God must be the "current" by which we must survive. How much more do we need the Living Water To be 100% God's? If material creations were someone's dream; If we feed on the Word daily and if our dreams are Godly; Our material possessions would be from God. Who inspires your dreams? If physical sexual activity is 90% mental and 10% physical, It must be 90% spirit and 10% flesh, And God should be in it! If the devil has only 1/3 of the angels and if God has the other 2/3, God must have controlling authority. Who is your "major stockholder" and who controls you?

If, as some people believe, we were created from the ape, Who created the ape? If, as some people believe, we were created from a "big bang," Who caused the "big bang?" Some people live their lives as though they are apes living in a jungle Of big noises refusing to listen to the soft voice of God. Some people walk around as in a "whirlwind" with no direction Falling prey to whatever master can control them. Who do you listen to and what noises are you making? If you are an ape, by what "current" do you survive? If you are part of a "big bang," what "current" creates your energy? If you are a child of God, how can society know? What do you profess to be: an ape, a big bang, or a child of God? If our spirit arises to be with God (water becomes as vapor); If our flesh returns to the earth (flesh becomes as dust); Does not the cycle start over again? Therefore, I conclude, God is eternal! Where will you spend eternity? That depends upon what "ifs" you believe. Copyright © Carolyn Bigler Hebert 1995

The Big If poem earned me first place for poetry and the OVERALL win for poetry in a literary contest for Composers, Authors, and Artists of America (aka CAAA), Fort Worth, Texas chapter in 1996. I had considered it philosophy and hesitated to enter it in the contest. However, I did and a male judge said "it has perfect meter. Whatever the writer is doing to keep it up." Note: I was listening to a still small voice. It took me all day to write it. I carried my note pad around with me as I did housework and wrote as the words came to me, one paragraph at at time. Really!

The reality of our goals and dreams is proportionately equal to the energy expended to make them come true. The worthiness of our goals and dreams, when placed in God's hands, is greater than our imagination can fathom. Vertical goals: heavenly and God directed. Horizontal goals and dreams: worldly and materialistic directed. What is your altimeter set on? Vertical or horizontal? Copyright © Carolyn Bigler Hebert March 1999

Poem List

The music is the Ave Maria, Gounod's version. I used to sing Shubert's version. To listen to Bishop Fulton Sheen click here for a fantastic talk about "How To Think." Bishop Sheen is a bit comical at times. Some of what he speaks is with reference to the 1950s but the point still applies today. You will be glad you viewed and listened I assure you.
