In some delusional world, God only gives people the things they can handle. Only beaten by "Everything happens for a reason."
Both of them fucking crocks of shit. Empty, hurtful words.

Stay strong, Dread. You carry a great burden.
And sometimes let somebody take care of you.

I haven't posted here much lately. Can I ask what's up, Dreadsox?

You're in my prayers. Hang in there. And yes, get mad at God. He doesn't mind.

I had the same question, not that it's any of my business. A comment which might be comforting (or at least harmlessly ineffectual) in the case of some kinds of suffering might come across as a patronizing slap in the face in the case of others.

Regardless, I will keep you in my prayers also.

Prayers are all that is necessary. Prayers.

I am angry at God, not for myself...But I am for a family, for my students, for a child.

No talk of God's will or its part of the plan, or even blaming original sin will make any of this better. There are no words that come to my mind that will help me comfort them.

The next week for the community will be a long one.

Peace

Hey Dread,

I don't know your, or what is going on, but there are many times I've felt the same way you do right now.

I am praying for you. And if you find comfort in nothing else, find it in knowing that all of us in this thread have you in our thoughts and/or prayers, and hope the best possible outcome for you.

Forever Young
by Renee 'nay' Kristen Kristen

Trapped in the glorious years
within the memory of belief, lost of all grief.
Take the reasons,
which once seemed so clear,
but never mind, you have nothing to fear.
For you my friend will be, forever young,
Forever in the heart of memories.

Lost in the glory of all time,
the wisdom was there within that smile,
You see you could have told us,
there within lies the mystery.

So shed a smile, and grin a tear,
For you my friend, will be,
Forever young, Forever young.
Forever in the heart of memory,
We see not through or misery.
Forever young, forever young.
There's a new angel tonight.

Today, prayers for family, friends, students and community are needed.

And God, if you are listening and have a moment, there are many who need your comfort this week.

Hang in there D.

God's not the only one who has his hand in the pot.

Dread, as I said earlier, I hope you do find peace with God.

I mean the following in the most respectful way possible, and I am offering these words because I believe they will help.

When did you start asking for answers on this particular subject? Did you start out the way you are now, "in God's face, calling him names", or was it peaceful in the beginning? How long a period of "non- answers" did you endure before stepping it up to this level?

When you asked him for answers, did you approach it in the attitude of expecting an answer, or did you think from the beginning that you were just spinning your wheels? If you expect to hear an answer, and are desiring to be in God's will, he will answer you. It may not be immediate, and the answer may be a simple "have faith", but he will answer you. However, if you never really expected an answer in the first place, if you didn't have faith that he would answer you, you probably wouldn't hear the answer.
