At least if you're pissed and shouting, you're still talking and communicating with Him. Just make sure to cool it every now and again so you can hear His responses. Make it a dialogue.

And when all else fails, just go back to shouting for awhile. As coemgen said, God's tough--He can take it. I do find, though, that often when I'm in shouting mode, it's more that I've temporarily lost recognition of who God is, and am in fact really shouting at myself. So if it just feels draining and not at all productive...that may be why.
This makes sense to me! Thank you!

It should be enough shouldn't it?

I've dealt with some of the same questions you've been dealing with before, too, Dread. Some excellent posts here, though, that make some sense and have some good answers in them .

I'm so sorry to hear that things are rather rough right now for you . Here's hoping that everything begins to look up for you soon . Don't hesitate to call on any of us if you need anything, too, okay?

Angela

I sometimes think God is an easy answer for a complex world that cannot be explained. God is someone to praise and curse. I even joke that God was created by a governing body out of a goal to control the masses and to control the otherwise lawlessness of humanity. We train ourselves to be civilized and religious teachings show us how to live and then we obey the laws (including common sense rules) that are out there. I really don't know. That whole statement is BS but I have no clue. Neither does the next guy. When I think about life and how little I am in the importance of things it scares me, but I would hate to think that there is some higher being out there that we all answer to. It can't be that simple because there is no universal God, what if someone was born into a family that did not belive the same beliefs as "Joe Schmoe" and they live on the other side of the world and will never hear Joes story. Who gets to go to heaven?? If only one did that would be simply unfair. Questions like that make me believe only in the rare goodness of people and that somehow we are here to do better than the last guy. I know Churches are good at heart for the most part but everyone's a hypocrate... and Church is just another big business selling the next best lifestyle. I think that I would like to believe, I was raised to believe, but I just don't know any more.

I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts this Christmas. I know that when one person is being stretched to the max, everyone else feels it too.

And you know, anytime I went through something terrible, I kept thinking, maybe it is fortuitious that it was me and not somebody who maybe couldn't cope. You're such a strong guy, mentally and in your faith, regardless of where you are right now, that maybe you are shouldering more than most precisely because you are able to.
