I asked a question earlier about whether or not I should go to my son's MDO prayer meeting bc I'm not sure I believe in what they teach. I chose to send him more for the preschool aspect. Anyways, I decided to go bc I didn't want to be the only parent not there. I want to be involved. So my and Wyatt went and we were the only parent/student there. Ironic and awkward! But the prayer was so beautiful I was almost crying! And I felt that presence I had always failed to feel before. So now my problem is how do I believe in someone who let's so much hurt and pain go on. I know all about free will, but why create something you know will end like this? I guess I just have to soul search and pray and find the answers I need.

Girl if you ever need to talk call me up, come over. God has done so much in my life! You need to come to MOMS (Moms Of Many Stages) at my church and see how you like it! MOMS is every 1st and 3rd Wednesday...we eat breakfast together and bible study, fellowship with other moms and childcare is provided.. I can try to answer some questions you have...I don't claim to know it all (by far) but can tell you what I know. I will give you a call tomorrow.

Well maybe Christianity isn't your thing. You shouldn't feel bad about it or let others guilt you into believing it. Just because you have a hard time having faith in one thing doesn't make you a bad person or mean you're going to hell. It simply means you should do some serious soul searching until you find or realize what it is that makes sense to you. It doesn't hurt to be open minded. I grew up in a Christian family, I have friends that are atheists, agnostics, pagans, and some that follow Norse Mythology to name a few. It's so enlightening to learn about others beliefs instead of trying to force yourself to follow one specific idea. It might broaden your mind to all sorts of new ideas and bring you inner peace. Just a suggestion from someone who had the same issue. And if you want i'll even help you. Just let me know

Bad things happen to good people, howwould you know the good if there was no bad to compare it too?

And many times when we are honest with ourselves, ther is something we could have made a better decision on that would have spared us the pain and sufferring.
