I think I am able to handle dissapointment better now that I am saved.. Knowing that I have God by my side, every second,of every minute of every hour, of every day definitely helps me get through the rough spots in my life..I know I will not always be happy. its just a part of life.. Their will be people who will make me mad, dissapoint me, and things will not always go my way.. But that is okay!!!!!!

I used to be a drama queen. I would make mountains out of molehiles.. LOL.. I thought every single dissapointment was the end of the world!!!!! I have now decided that way of life doesn't work for me or my family.. I cannot be an effective witness and live a life that reflects the love of Christ if I am exaggerating and dramatizing everything.. I know God won't let me down when the rest of the world does. He is the rock I lean on whenever I am down.. He is the light that leads me through the darkness.

I think when we feel like God has left us is when we have decided not to trust and have faith in Him and we are trusting in ourselves to make it all better. Unfortunately that just isn't possible. As long as we are living in the flesh the world can bring us down and satan will use everything he can to attack us.. We have to decide we are going to "Let go and Let God"!!!

Jun. 2, 2008 at 5:29 PM Oh yes, let go, let God! It's just hard to always keep the faith. Life throws so many stupid detours in the road!? But, yes, it's great to have God to turn to!!!!!!!!!

Jun. 2, 2008 at 6:16 PM I  am sorry to hear u have felt like God has let u down..  I think the times when we feel like God has let us down is when we have lost faith and we are expecting things in our own timing ..God is faithful and just at the same time..  God's timing is not the same as ours.. He was , is and will always be!! If u would like to talk to me more indepth about this feel free to email me. I have felt like God let me down at times. But I came to realize he is in complete control and the plans he has for our lives are not always going to be the same as the ones we have for ourselves.. We have to trust and give him the steering wheel and let him drive us where he wants us to go.. If that makes any sense..Our flesh makes us feel like we need this and want that and things arent going our way. We have a tendency to want to blame God. But we all have free will.. Until we get to heaven , we will all struggle on a daily basis with our thoughts and emotions.. God bless!
