Ok a little background. My first husband died in June of 06 while I was pregnant with baby #2. 4 months later my dad died. I remarried, and now this year my first husbands stepdad has died, and I had a stillborn baby (39 weeks along) on Sept 22. Everyone I come across keeps telling me I should turn my back on God over this. Honestly I have no plans to do so, and don't even want to hear about it. I love my Lord, and everything that happens keeps bringing me closer to Him. I am at a loss of how to deal with these people. How can I tell them to get lost or at least drop that line of conversation without sounding too mean?

I'd say something like, "Look what happened while we were following God, I'd hate to see the consequences of turning my back on Him." Remember, Job's wife kept telling him to "Curse God and die." He never did, and God blessed him seven fold when all was said and done.
