    Not a debate...just a comment to Silent's posts
    If one doesn't believe in God then they would not believe God chooses to watch and not do anything.

    Love,
    Hugs.

    Sometimes it sure feels that way. One difficult part of following Jesus and believing He is with me is that we can't see Him with our eyes. We can't always know why He allows pain and suffering. We don't always understand why the Creator of the Universe chose to manifest Himself to his lost children knowing His own children would abandon, torture and kill Him.

    It doesn't make sense at all but after walking with Jesus a while He has shown me a few things; sufferings of my past, decisions I made that were based on Christ's values that caused me more suffering, had a reason. He has shown me the lives of people that hurt me that I could have retaliated had I not held on to His values, and how they ended up. He has shown me true blessings and how valuable they are. I just have to cling to Him, to His values and trust him, which is very hard for me because I have been abandoned, hurt and abused by everyone who was supposed protect, love and care for me.

    He also has a purpose for my illness, I can see some reasons now but I know it will be perfectly clear when I cross over.

    I'm so sorry for your pain,
    Ayah

    We are all in this together no matter what we believe; Christians, Jews, Muslims and the Artiest : )

    Faith is expressed in many ways. I think the only thing that offends me is Lupus. It is an uninvited guest!

    Romans 8:35 I cannot be separated from the love of God

    2 Corinthians 1:21 I have been established, annointed, and sealed by God

    Colossians 3:3 I am hidden with Christ in God

    Philippians 1:6 I am confident that the good work God has begun in me will be perfected

    Philippians 3:20 I am a citizen of Heaven

    That is so awesome Lori. I sometimes forget that god did not give me the spirit of fear. I tend to fear the unknown. Silent . . . everyone worships and believes in their own way. We just choose to do it as positively as possible. I hope that you find peace in your life and in your suffering.
    A good friend will help you move, a GREAT friend will help you move a body . . . Let me know if I need to bring a shovel!!!

    Lori...thank you so much for sharing this. Sometimes we all have to be reminded of who and what we are and our purpose. We need to be reminded that God has not forgot about us and yes loves us as we are!
    What a positive message and I love you for posting!

    AMEN! I am glad to see that you are a sister in Christ, God bless.
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort wich we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3
