Matt -

What Rayww spoke is true (Hiya, Rayww!).

Our minds are capable of some pretty deceptive stuff... but He never lies (the enemy lies all the time).

Cry out to Him -- with no pre-conceived ideas of how He'll show up, or what He'll say/do. Trust HIM, and not your fallible perception of Him.

And, remember, bad things happen to us... He's in charge - and he causes or allows all things (read Job in the Bible). Bad things happened to Jesus (who had to learn obedience through His suffering -- so how can we even THINK we'll escape suffering in this life?!?), bad things happened to Paul, to all of the Apostles... bad things happened to the early Christians. Bad things happen to Christians (& others) all over the planet.

But God can, and does use ALL of what happens to us for our good -- IF we let Him. IF we want to see them through His perspective.

The other choice? To become bitter and hard... to turn against Him, and others who hurt us.

It's a GOOD thing that your faith in your own mind, in your own perspective, in trusting yourself -- has been shattered. It's a blessing-in-disguise, because now you have an opportunity to embrace Him, as He is, in your pain, & let Him have His way with you...

Yeah, it hurts. But it's good.

Shalom, Dena
