A five year old dies from meningitis
A young woman commits suicide within hours of being released from hospital
The blog of a young man suffering from severe depression
A young mother miscarries
WHERE IS GOD?
THIS CARING,LOVING GOD?
Verses quoted by well-meaning but un-empathetic people
Become a weight round my neck
Adding to my misery and despair
I don’t see him Not even a glimmer
In the deep dark pit of
It is only as I come out
Of the darkness of despair
That I begin to see
That God has not left me
And in hindsight
I see the provision
For that deep dark chapter in my life
And my faith deepens
And I can say
GOD, YOU WERE THERE!
YOU ARE WITH ME!
YOU DO CARE!
Hindsight Gives me the strength
To hold on
When life gets tough
Bible verses only become real to me
As I live out the ups and downs of life
These are the verses I can hang onto
Strengthening my faith
AND I KNOW YOU ARE STILL GOD!
