Making Things Beautiful

i am in medical school and today while on rounds i read ecclesiastes 3 where it talks about GOD making things beautiful in HIS time.  i'm always wondering when that time will come.  i try to cope and that doesn't help.  i am towards the end of school and now the pain of feeling sad and lonely is really hitting home because most of my friends are getting married and having children.  i have a boyfriend but half the time i feel like i get on his nerves.  and then this weekend i did something really silly to him and i just feel awful about it.  i just feel so pointless and disconnected from everybody.

You shouldnt compare your life with anybody, there might have kids and children but are they happy??<br />
<br />
God always test those that he loves dear, the more patience you have the more reward for you, its not the end until all is well, remember :)

I think feeling this way is part of the toil and suffering that sometimes comes with bearing fruit beyond what we expect. <br />
<br />
As for feeling alone, I sympathize with you and can only offer a shoulder, should you need one. :)

And your genuine words are what I need just survival. I have been living on only faith for three years now with just life and existence as a constant battle, but God sends me fine and good people like you to uplift my spirit, and He also sends helps from strangers who could be strangers unawares. <br />

Thank you, and if you ever just need a friend that not only hears; but listens well, I am always hear.<br />

thank you. very rarely do people's words affect me but i never turn away a Word from the LORD that really rocks my core. i hope JESUS blesses you abundantly for your real words of encouragement towards me today. i believe because i prayed and sought GOD first HE sent me what i needed instead of me trying to get it my way. your words are so priceless.

You are actually doing what is right just by reading the Bible because that alone is a very special quality; and the time of a better world is coming much sooner than people fully understand; however it’s not coming in the way that people believe or are taught.<br />
Just to cope with life, circumstances, hurts, doubts, trials and tribulations with loneliness is in itself a major battle in life, and you my dear woman and lady are a very special person just because of your feelings for others (medical school) and curiosity about when God is going to do the things He says, because that shows faith.<br />
<br />
So all in all you’re unique in your own ways with a very solid direction that is far from pointless because many people never have any direction in life whatsoever. And to feel disconnected is just something that sets us as individuals apart. We may feel different because we are different, we may feel lonely because we are lonely, we may want a better life and not have that life, and with that we may feel some insecurities. <br />
<br />
You have a heart, you care about others, you’re working on a medical education and you read the Bible.<br />
<br />
So now if you just take your faith and turn it to trust by casting all your cares on God because He cares for you; He will give you the inner peace that you need to deal with all things in life no matter what they may be. Want real depth and understanding with God? Simply skip over man by going directly to God, and by making Proverbs chapter 2 your life’s direction; God will become your friend, companion and teacher. <br />
<br />
Psalms 118:8 says it best.<br />
<br />
“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.<br />
<br />
And just smile in faith because better days in Gods kingdom are coming.
