I’m sure you have asked yourself a thousand times. Why ME? If there is a God, then why did I have to go through this? God teaches us to seek HIM. As sinful humans, our natural tendency is to seek only what pleases the body. In so doing, we frequently leave God out of our lives until we need Him. In John 16:33, God tells us that there will be storms in this life. However, by seeking Christ we come to find the peace that only He, the ADVOCATE, can offer. He does not abandon us. He died for us. Regardless of the sin…regardless of the sin that resulted in our storm….He died for EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US so that one day we may live in a perfect Heaven with our Father! No Hurt. No Guilt. No Shame. No Fear. No Hate.

You see, God doesn’t cause bad things to happen to people, but He does offer us comfort, hope, and a new life in Him when we go through these things. We are on this earth for the purpose of serving Him. Sometimes, that means being shattered and allowing Him to put the pieces back together again, but much better and stronger than before. Like a parent offering a guiding hand to their child, God is waiting to offer His hand to us. Sadly, many of us have to be broken before we reach to Him, whether it be by that of our own doing or by the hand of others. Maybe, it was just our destiny for God’s purpose and plan. Eph 1: 9-14

  2. Dear Anonymous, those are questions you and I don't have answers to. I wish I did. God promises us that one day we will have answers. Your mother was a sick woman, just like my dad. I don't hate. I have pity. I wrote this a few weeks ago, at a time when I was questioning things. I hope you find it helpful:

    It's important to know that as a believer, you are not left on your own to cope with the problems the world will lay before you. But you do have to be willing to ask God for help, in accordance with His will. His will…NOT yours and NOT mine. WE frequently don't understand HIS will. In this life time, we probably never will. We know that Romans 8:28 tell us ” that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose”. This doesn't mean that everything that happens to us is good. IF it were, we wouldn't seek God's comfort. We would be content with the world's comfort. After all, by nature, we are earthly with earthly desires. There is much evil in this world. God is able to turn any situation around for His purpose and our good. His overall purpose,however, may not be EXACTLY what makes us happy and what we perceive to be for our good. Those who are called, are those who the Holy Spirit convinces to receive Christ. However, one must be hungry for Christ and want this relationship and be willing to BE STILL, LISTEN and TRUST, and receive HIS GRACE. It doesn't just come automatically. Like all things in life, it requires work and sacrifice on our part. Anything worth having is worth fighting for. God is willing to fight for you, but you have to want it and be willing to fight for HIM as well. Trust in God, not life's treasures. Look for security in Heaven, not Earth. As difficult as it is, don't trade pain and persecution for resentment, anger, and hate. Remember what Jesus went through- His whole life until the moment He died on the cross. As a human, He felt weak toward the end also. He asked God, that if it be His will “may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will” Matthew 26:39 and as He hung on the cross, he said this: “Eli,Eli, Lena sabachthani” or “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” Then He gave up his spirit and three days later became our Risen Savior. You see, God took the evil of the world and changed it for His purpose and our good. I bet it sure didn't seem like it at the time to Mary and the disciples, and all of the other believers. Trust God and allow Him to wrap His loving arms around you. Feel Him even when you are weak and weary. It's your journey with HIM…if you will only TRUST HIM and LET HIM LEAD YOU.
