Dear God, you’ve finally lost me

Has it ever occurred to you that maybe, just maybe, all those little “lessons” that were crammed down our throats when we were growing up … that maybe, again just maybe, those little “lessons” were just a bunch of shit?

God doesn’t give us more than we can handle

I call B.S. Big time. Here’s why … I’ve had plenty of moments throughout my life where I’ve fallen off my bike, but gotten back up again. Plenty of times when I’ve dug in deep, found my resolution, and fought my way back. Tomorrow’s another day, blah, blah, blah. But. Now this … without going into details, just know I’ve been slammed into a situation I never could have imagined. And I don’t know what to do, or really, maybe it’s that I know what I need to do, but I can’t. I just can’t. I’m not brave enough.

So God, if you’re listening, I really don’t appreciate this. Not one bit. Because as it turns out, I can’t handle it. And I’m afraid you’ve broken me. Congratulations. Laugh if you must, just know this … my faith is in the toilet, and I just flushed it.

Anyone out there today? Anyone ever been slapped so hard by something they really can’t handle? What did you do? What do I do? Sitting in the corner crying is not an option.

DISCLAIMER:I’m a writer and an editor. And I try my best to make sure every post is articulate and free from errors. However, being that I edit my own work—and it’s next to impossible to properly edit your own work—I admit, occasionally there may be an error or two I miss. But doing so doesn’t make me an idiot so don’t be mean. Just smile, pat yourself on the back for finding an error and be glad you’re not the only one who makes mistakes sometimes … xoxox

    Sometimes…not always, or maybe always (depends on if we notice or not i suppose) our world is one big crap hole and maybe for that split second something or someone spectacular happens or comes into your life that wasnt expected. Often times we are so blind to our “why me” that we miss the answer/the good thing/the ah ha (not referring to the 80’s one hit wonder band) moment. So in my book (i have no book, rather my opinion) for every action there is a direct opposite reaction. What is horrible there must be something (not necessarily right away) good and perhaps incredible. Did we miss it? Is it still there? Is it to come? Do we just give up? Hard to say i suppose, but i do know one thing…maybe two. That if we focus on the “why me” and perhaps the crap, we may not see or experience the moment (s) or that person that could help turn it all around. Keep your eyes open the Lone Ranger may save the day…and you could miss him.

    I lived 14 years being treated for HIV, and the medications, however the many times we changed them, kept trying to kill me…..not the virus, but the meds…….I gave up, gave it wholeheartedly to God one final time, stopped all my meds…..and that was over 7 years ago. I am stronger now at 56 years of age, then I was at 25…….it is that broken heart that offers you the perfect opportunity, at see exactly what God is truly capable of. You give it all to Him, and He will show Himself to you!
