Where is God in the Pain? - Part 1

I can't say that I sit around questioning God.  I've always been the type to just believe.  God said it.  It must be true.  When there is trouble in this life, I accept that it is nothing more than something we should EXPECT.  We shouldn't be surprised and be so quick to blame God when we feel pain.  Whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, we will feel pain.  We will experience trouble and heartache.  We shouldn't be shocked when something bad happens to us or others around us. 

Are we entitled to feel pain and anger and sadness over the things that this life holds for us?

Up through the concrete

I felt my stomach drop when I heard my husband telling me that he had "messed up" last Friday.

We always talk over at least one of my breaks, and I didn't expect to hear those words coming from his mouth.  I am filled with anxiety when I hear these words, as I am sure he is having to tell me about it.

It used to frustrate me and make me angry to find out my husband was looking at pornography on the internet.

What will you choose?

I love what God is doing in my life.  I love the opportunities God has given me to use my story.  I have a unique and scary-to-me opportunity coming up in June to go to a women's prison to share my story.  Holy cow!  More on that later...

Another opportunity I have, as you've read before, is being able to write periodically for Intentionally Yours. I'd love for you to check out my latest posts there:

What Will You Choose - Part 2

I really appreciate all the love and support you have shown me, through reading, encouraging comments, and all the prayers!  Thanks guys!!
