"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
~ Matthew 27:46
In my sickness, I was often angry with God. I was angry because God did not do what I wanted when I wanted it done. I acted like a spoiled child. I refused to understand that suffering could be an important part of my spiritual growth.
Today I know this to be true, and I appreciate it. The biggest part of my suffering, then and now, is the feeling of isolation: not knowing for certain if God hears me, not understanding completely what God’s will is for me, or not getting clear answers to my daily confusion.
Doubt is part of faith. The "not knowing" is some-times the answer. Today I trust in God as I focus on my recovery.
God, may my doubts lead to creative faith.
