Belief or an excuse ?

There was a random thought from past few years in my mind.

There are times when we strive hard yet we fail. Not  always we taste the sweetness of victory. At that time,when we feel a little low,  just to console ourselves or to get over the incident we say :
""Everything happens for good.One should have that unshakable belief in the almighty power.Everything is normal and we gained experience""

Is it really a belief in GOD or an excuse we give to ourselves  ?

BELIEF : A belief that there is goodness in disguise, we cannot see it now but one day we will surely realize it.Today we may be blind and complain it that we lost or failed but tomorrow will be ours and thus one should not repent on the failure.We strongly believe that GOD never make mistakes and whatever He has decided is for our own benefit.
EXCUSE : are we keeping ourselves in darkness by giving excuses because may be we have realized that we don't deserve that dream we desired for ?  An excuse by saying that destiny prevails and something better is thought for us and we move on.I wonder is it so easy to convince oneself ? sometimes infact many times "YES" it is easy because giving "excuses" has become our habit. Even from the childhood we give excuses to our teachers for late work or not doing homework, we give excuses to our parents when we don't wanna go to school or score low marks and now we give excuse to ourselves when we fail to accomplish our goals.

I know both the term depicts some optimism within them when i say "leave the past in the past and move on towards the future" all because we focus more on the negative side at this time but  Is it really a belief or an excuse  ? which help us to come out of this setback of failure.

One has to believe in ourselves as well as God,Without self belief life would be without hope.

God might just be an excuse but as humans we need something to believe in, to hope for, to hold on to...

It's a little of both. You make mistakes, fail and say that it happened for good, because next time, you won't make the same mistake. So, God has some good plans :)

@Yvonne - yeah its true that one should have infinite believe in GOD and within ourselves too. Thanks for passing by :)

@Priyanka - "God might just be an excuse" that was a lil diplomatic but i sincerely value your words. Thanks for posting.

@anshul - yep i finally realized that our reaction after the result is a blend of both belief and excuse. thanks for sharing your views.
