When You Feel That God Has Abandoned You, Then What?Because my life's problems began as a small child my outlook on life is perhaps a bit different than some people. Because my life as an adult is not much better, I am to the point that I am pretty pissed off at God. Not to be overly dramatic, but considering my circumstances. It probably would have been better to not have been born.
Having said that though, I think considering all the handicaps that have been in my life, I have handled them fairly well. When you are in an abusive situation as a child, your defensive mechanisms are just different. Consequently, I blame a lot of where I am on my childhood.
Having said all of that, what my story is about, is that I want to know from those who feel they have been overly hurt, how they maintained their relationship with God. Do you even have a relationship with God?
For those who are going to respond about Karma:. Let me explain something about Karma. Karma is where Mother Theresa got into trouble. Her helping to feed the poor and help the sick got people very angry because she was interfering with their fate.
So if you say it is Karma, then when you are sick or hungry, well then I guess it is your fate. Stop, think, and be careful about your response.
I follow a different philosophy. I feel we were given two hands for a reason. One hand to help ourselves and the other to help those in need around us.
I wonder how many hands God has?. And why isn't He reaching out for me?
