There are times when we feel God has let us down. Maybe we have prayed constantly for an ill friend to be healed and they have died any way or when we prayed for a family member to turn to God and they passed away not knowing Him or losing our job because we chose to act morally or the baby just didn't have the strength to make it or our potential goes unfulfilled because we have to care for a loved one instead...
If you have felt disappointment with God you are not alone, many people are or have been in the same boat. In light of this; is God still good? is God fair? Questions like that can't be answered in a single blog post but I am more than willing to talk things over with anyone. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll take it from there. In strict confidence of course.
The Bible says that 'in all things God works for the good of those who love him' (Romans 8:28). God also says 'my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways' (Isaiah 55:8). We are not able to see things the way God sees them, life can seem very confused and rudderless from time to time but we've got to trust that God is working for our good, however unlikely or far away that may seem.
I don't mean to sound trite, I know that when you feel hurt by life simply quoting a bible verse probably won't help much. I just want to reassure you that God is faithful and does love you and the time when you feel most abandoned is the time the trust you place in God and His love for you will be most keenly felt.
