    I think that everyone's life has a different journey - God makes no mistakes - while we may not understand it in the physical He never gives you a burden that you cannot handle - and if he put you through it he will pull you through it..  I try and think about life a on-going Bible of sorts with many parables and testimonies of God's goodness and grace. I don't believe that the Holy books ends it continues with each person writing a chapter - some of our chapters will be lessons which others need to learn from, some are lessons we need to learn from and others are things that God just has decided that WE AS CHRISTIANS must go through - without testimony and redemption what would we be as a people.

    I have a friend who lost her husband while pregnant with her 6th baby and she finds herself as a widow of 6 at 35 - devastating  - words cannot even express the heartache she must have felt and continues to feel to this day -but with God she has to lean on the understanding that IT IS HIS WILL.  That is the only way I get through the troubled  times and the stories that just make you belly ache and cry because of the devastation.

     

    Just my opinion

      hi leeleesmommy, i believe more and more ea day that the people we meet are not a coincidence, wether good or bad they come into your life for a reason, sometimes just a season,it makes us stronger, makes me appreciate life more, than ever cherish those that u love dont wait for the end,start now! Life is too short.

        Your answers come at a time not of your choosing. They may have come already and you may have rejected them.

        Recall your waking moments and things you may have dismissed. When you heard yourself talking and it awakened you to a fleeting moment of clarity.
