I understand...

Hi Roxann-

Your feelings mentioned above are normal... we all feel them at one time or another to some degree. These should not cause you to stop believing in God. God is with you at all times.. He knows what it is you are going through. Sometimes He uses these feelings so that you will go to Him and create a relationship with Him. But you must seek Him in ernest...

I have felt frustrated almost every day of my life lately because of my health problems... cannot do what I use to and simple things are very difficult.

I have felt lonely... going through a SLOW divorce (taking forever to get done) and then having my children live out of state and my youngest is home but always working or out. So, this sometimes makes me feel forgotten... I have a family and I don't... type of thing.

When I am having a very bad night with my breathing... all I have is me but then I remember Jesus. The most incredible thing is that I offer to Him my suffering at that moment and ask Him to be with me and within minutes.. it starts to pass. Then I feel His presence and I feel a warmth or joy or peace... don't know exactly what to call it but I know that I am definitely not alone.

Then I give thanks. I thank Him for all He has given me. The hard times as well... because these have given me the relationship I now have with Him. Very close. I have no other friendship that is stronger. No other love that is truer.

So, pray... read your bible a bit... go through it and stop where something catches your eye. Jot it down on paper and write why this sentence or paragraph is speaking to you and pray on it. Do this regularly. He will help you through this.

May God's blessing be upon you and may He keep you so close, that you will always believe.

Yours in Christ,
