My thoughts and reflections:
Well, God has screwed me over for the last time. I'm pleased to say that I don't care. I don't care because frankly, I don't believe and if a molecule of my existence did believe, I now hate the concept of God. So, it's been a nice 9 or 10 months that I have been on this site, but I now have the answers I seek. So, peace out people.
What is it that yoh have prayed for and not received an answer from God. God has not screwed you, I lost a child and let me tell you that is the hardest thing in the world to see your child lifted in the ground. But, I too thought like you that the Lord had betrayed me bu the didn't he was at the same place where my child was just as he was when his own son was put to death. God, do not promise us that if we choose to follow him that there would be no trials and tribulations but look to him from which our help cometh. In my opinion only you are walking by sight and not by faith, we serve a God that is always on time I know I have been there. My mother has been on her sick bed for 5 years, amputation of the leg, end-stage renal kidney failure, Alhezmers diseas but I still prasie him. He has something in store for me I don't know what it is but it due season. Remember the devil is a liar, He is the father of a lie since the beginning in the Book of Gensis. Don't let the satan and his demons let you miss out on eternity I want to see you there. Mary Doris
Sorry, you feel that way, Kayla. What brought this on?
My dear friend, No where here in your message do you mention the name of Jesus. He is our salvation. By his sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the dead we are free to accept him and gain eternal life. Take time to get to know Jesus. Reading the Gospel of John is a good start. Our our hope and grace can be found in Jesus.
We will still face trials and tribulations. But, facing them with our loving intercessor Jesus and the Holy Spirit is way better than alone. God loves you greatly!
Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me."
John 15:4-5 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
You are special in God eyes, He loves you and He has a perfect plan for you.
God Bless you Kayla.
I can't even begin to recount all the times I've felt I was done with God. Definitively. I did not care for God or even for the good world he created. This is even after I had had a "born again" experience so to speak where I felt a type of joy..... I spurned every movement of the Holy Spirit that I can recall was in my heart. I hated God, and thought for years I had committed the unpardonable sin....
Yet here I am today. I am living my life. I am making progress in my daily life. I have peace and gladness. I am growing as a person though ever so slightly. And I am grateful for all the things that have been given to me, whether by God or my parents or the society I live in.
So long as there is the least spark of hope or faith in you, there is the possibility of latching onto the proper object of that hope, of that faith. And that true object I am convinced is God.
I hope and pray that even if you refuse to acknowledge God, that he may work good things in your life nonetheless. And hopefully, then, you will have the desire to come back to Him and he will draw you.....
Very sorry to hear you feel God screwed you over. It's ok though. May I say you never knew him. You only thought you did. If you really had a relationship with Jesus (God) you know that is not of God. I hope your life changes and you find God through Jesus. Acts2:38 the real way to salvation.
“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
