    Not even one sparrow falls to the ground without God's knowledge. He sees and knows of all the hurt , pain and sorrow everywhere.

    Watching over you as always. Without mistakes we do not learn. Without pain we do not grow. Emotional and/or physical pain is challenging; the pain may always be with you but you must strive to understand and grow from all experiences. There is lessons in all things; you are the only one who can determine what is being taught as it is only for you.

    Find the good in all things; the pain may be with you always but you will come to understand.

    Holding you on his lap, close to his heart, wiping your tears and wound gently so it gets clean, holding your other hand while applying the ointment and bandage for your pain.

    He is dwelling in the imagination of the religious masses.

    useyourgift... I'll be sure to relate your message of growth to the children dying of horrible diseases in Africa if they are not too busy getting ointment and bandages on gods lap that is.
    Maybe its time god stopped obsessing about sparrows for a change, would be nice if world hunger or malaria is eradicated, there would still be enough suffering to please god I'm sure.

    It all depends upon which God you are referring to; the god of this world, or The Godhead of The Father and Son.

    People hurt in this world because it is Satan's world and he is the god of it. He is the one our first parents decided to believe and follow. Mankind, therefore, suffers pain and hurts continually because of this bad mistake.

    Mankind's suffering will continue unabated until the return of The Lord Jesus Christ and as we approach that time, the pain, suffering and hurts will increase beyond words that the English vocabulary is capable of describing.

    Our continual prayers should be that The Father cuts this time short and Satan's rule speedily ended.

    One night I had a dream--
    I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
    and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
    For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
    one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
    When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
    there was only one set of footprints.
    I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
    and saddest times in my life.
    This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
    "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
    you would walk with me all the way,
    but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
    there is only one set of footprints.
    "I don't understand why in times when I needed you most,
    you should leave me."
    The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
    I love you and I would never, never leave you
    during your times of trial and suffering.
    "When you saw only one set of footprints,
    it was then that I carried you."

    ...Mary Stevenson

    I know it is hard to understand why God let's us undergo periods of pain, and why He allows terrible things to happen in this world.  I do not know all of the answers but I do know He is with Us. He allows some things to happen to teach us. Others to inspire change in us. Others to call us to action!
    God Bless You.

    I suppose he was in the same place when His Son was hanging on the cross.

    I guess that depends on whether or not you actually believe "god" exists?

    If you firmly believe "god" is real, then I would suspect that you would also believe that he is with you at all times, considering he is the almighty.

    Otherwise, the true answer is GOD doesn't exist. The pain you feel, was brought on by either actions of your own accord or actions by other people.

    Either way, get over it and move on with your life.

    He  is   there  brother.

    I cant answer for God because I am not Him. However, I know a lot about His word and His word is true. He has told us He will never leave us.

    I do know that He is the only one who can fix a broken heart! Take it one day at a time.

    In your mind, he can be anything that will take away the pain depending on how good you imagination is, like the people who wrote a certain book smile
