Fate gives us what we have whether we like it or not. Whether we have plenty or little, it is our fate. Do you think satan tortures those who long for what they cannot have? Do you think he is happy to have you see the man who ripped your heart into shreds prosper? Why do I ask? Because the pain is hard to stomach sometimes. A shaking suffocating tearful pain. It's not warranted but it is what it is and it hurts like hell and I can only trust God and surrender those emotions to the Lord. That's all I can do at this point. Chapter 6:1-2 in Ecclesiastes is very helpful in helping me to cope.

Thank you so much. You're very wise.
I am glad that you seem to take this well. I sat at the feet of a rare Soul for 32 years, and offer you the fruit of my own experience. You are a very special child of God. Learn what you can, no matter how painful, and go forward. Healing thoughts.
ah, but satan DOES care for himself. the bible tells us he is like a roaring lion and knows his time is short. if satan did not care about himself he would not care that his time was short. he would not have rebelled in the first place.
Verry good point. No matter who you are, what you do, or where you're at, you are faced with some sort of challenge. ;-)
Thank you so much.
very well said Stages of Me
I reread your reply. I love it so much and it's so true and I feel God working in your life and your faith has touched me deeply. Thank you. :-) My favorite line is about the mask to the reality of the world that lies beneath. So true and so deep
I don't know what to say. Now I'm even more confused. I feel that God does say no sometimes to what we ask for. He either says yes, no or wait. He does not grant us everything we ask for and maybe we should be thankful for just that but it's hard
The tricky part is tuning into the right ideas. He may not have said no, but the person did not recognize the right ideas, or they didn't act on it immediately or they quit too soon. They have to see the sign and then follow it. It's already theirs.
what most people miss is that it also says to seek ye first the kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. this means when you ask GOD for a thing, be sure you want HIS Will above your own.
I agree. I often meditate on "Thy will be done." It's not my world. God created it for his purpose. I surrender to God. I'm too weak to fight anymore and I shouldn't fight in the first place. My desire to fight overcomes me sometimes sadly.
I have seen miracles from the scripture, 'stand ye still and see the salvation of the Lord'. I just stood still and the problems disappeared without me doing anything. So the battle is not mine, thank God! I will gladly stand still, lol.
Thank you. I know God loves ALL people. I have to work through my bitterness in order to forgive him. Psalm 37 helps. I pray that God gives me a discerning forgiving transformed heart. I'm only hurting myself.
Thanks.I feel that this is a lesson I must learn.I will reap what I sow. If I sowed sin, I will reap the consequences one way or another.We all will. I just didn't expect the pain to hit me so hard 8 years later. He's forgotten all about me by now.
Jesus said it is because of a lack of faith. So if you disagree, then you don't believe in his teachings. Miracles are brought about by faith. With God all things are possible, if you believe. If you don't believe, no miracles happen. Do you believe?
it still boils down to a matter of faith. faith in knowing GOD knows best. faith that HIS no is a good thing for us. faith that HE will teach us what HE wants from us. what HE has in store for us.
