  • I AM SO SORRY YOU HAVE HAD ALL THESE TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN TO YOU, BUT YOU CAN'T BLAME YOUR FAITH OR LACK THEREOF FOR THIS, WE ALL HAVE A MAJOR PLAN FOR OUR LIFES WHAT MAKES ONE LIFE HARDER THAN THE OTHER HAS MANY DIFFERENT FACTORS, GENETICS FOR ONE, LOOK AT THE KENNEDY FAMILY TRAGEDY, MOST OF THEM HAVE DIED OF SOME SORT OF CANCER, BUT YOU MUST DO THE BEST WITH WHAT LIFE HANDS DOWN TO YOU, THAT IS ABOUT IT.

  • Maybe you have faith in something that's not there... No matter how much faith you have in a non-existant god, they can't help you!

  • I am sorry sister you are going through so many trails. Set your mind on things from above. I gone through a lot myself I can relate to you. God is not far or distant from you He is caring you through this time. Read the book of Job and rejoice in your salvation and how our home is in heaven. We are not of this world!!!! I'm praying for God to give you the needed strength and endurance to perserver in your calling.

  • The deeper we go in our faith the brighter we become, the close we get to God the more powerful His light is in a dark world. As we get brighter , satan becomes darker & we certainly do become a threat to his kingdom. However when we remain in the center of His presence He certainly does take care of us and continues to purify us. We have seasons of fire where God is building our character. You are about to enter into a place of rest which you will find under the Shadow of His wings. No matter what the enemy throws at you, he cannot come near your dwelling place under His Wings. You will find reprieve in this place, I encourage you just to set aside time to just listen to gentle music & soak Him in & in that place you will find His peace & truly know how much He loves you! :-) Your breakthrough is right around the corners so keep going forward and you will find that He is truly faithful and true. Do not allow others negative.

  • This is how I look at life and it's experiences. In my 20s a friend died every year, sometimes 2 friends. That was just friends, not the family members. All were trgedies and not normal car accident kind of deaths either. I doubted my faith for some time but for years now have been strong with my connection to God and my church family. But I believe our soul has a path, and some harder than others. We are here to learn lessons. You can even look at it that the mature your soul, the more difficult life, because maybe it is close to the end of living human lives. But then again I also believe in reincarnation. After all one lifetime isn't long enough to experience things. Also think of how people who live with diseases and suffer for extended periods feel. That was part of what their soul chose to experience. Sad to say God isn't always going to take away the bad he does afterall know what he is doing, even when we don't like it

  • words tear you down or deceive you into thinking He is not real. That is the enemy's job to deceive kill and destroy. Just remain in His arms and He will come through in His time! His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways not our ways! He SEES the full picture! :-) Bless you mighty and I speak and decree a freedom over your life! Amen !

  • Whenever bad things happen in my life, that further affirms my belief that there is in fact no higher power out there looking out for us.

    It's an incredibly liberating feeling. Don't be afraid to follow your heart, whether it leads you back to your god or away from him for good.

  • Surround yourself with other mature believers. Pray fast do your devotions and surrender these situations to Him things WILL get better!! Now is when you walk by faith not by sight. Its easy to walk with God when things are going good but only a few walk when things get hard. Don't let the enemies lies distance you. Use the scriptures as ur weapon!
