We've been slammed against every rock imaginable. Lost our jobs last year, & our house, moved to new town only to have 1/2 our income taken away again within 3 months, saw our credit get ruined because we couldn't pay the bills, moved back (DH got offer for better pay), but we can't even get out of this financial hole (every time we turn around it's another WHAM up side the head - and it's always big amounts -like our insurance screwed up and took 2000 out of our bank without our knowledge- which caused ALL of our bills to bounce). I'm tired of fighting. We're having to live in a crap house where the landlord won't give us a lease and threatens to make us move every time she gets a whim. We can't move out because our credit is screwed, we can't get caught up, and I feel absolutely stuck, trapped. If God loves me so much, where is he? We stayed faithful thru it all. Tithed and all. What's a body to do?

As much as God is for you, there is another that is working just as hard against you. I know it is difficult to see the bright side of things, but know that God isn't doing this to you. These are very difficult times for you and now is when you need God the most. Turning your back and "ignoring" God isn't going to make anything in your life better, it is actually going to make you feel worse. We cant punish God when things don't go our way. It just doesn't work that way. Stay faithful. He will see you through this. Read 1Peter 4: 12-13.. This helped me when I had a really rough period. It is so easy to get angry and blame God for our problems, but look at what you do have. Like mikeysmomma1205 said.. it could be a lot worse. Don't lose faith, remember the poem Footprints... "when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then I carried you." He is waiting for you to lean on Him. Praying 4 u and your family.
