Hi Mia,
This is a rambling we all might make at one time in our lives. It asks many questions that don't seem to have clear answers.
To one I would say, not that I am right, that if we says God is all powerful and all knowing, then, he can't have someone guiding Him.
It seems you always felt God's presence when you most needed it.
I know my thoughts are rambled, should be either I know my thoughts are jumbled or I know I am rambling.
Keep writing and stay healthy
Congrats on placing third in the contest

This is a phrase for people who haven't been given more than they could take. I remember when our life was financially falling apart. I lost my job & my house. My partner was saying something like "I know they say God does give us more than we can take, but I'm not sure that is true." I shortly noticed for the first time in months, my saying I had on my wall from a 12- step program. "Everything is exactly as it is supposed to be." That changed my spirit. I have learned to leave God out of this stuff. Everyone wants to blame God...poor God...He's like a scapegoat. Enough for now.

    That is so true. It is far to easy to blame someone or something else for the way things are. No matter who or what is out there we need to depended on ourselves and take responsibility for our own actions.

You asked some great questions many would like answers to, Mia.
I enjoyed reading them. All were thoughtfully presented with sincerity.
Your questions covered such a variety that seemed to be causing you
dilemma. I suggest you add at least a line at the beginning such a
Dear God.

Also
Would not your presents [ presence ] being revealed unite the world?

Best wishes in the contest, Jan

Hey Jena,

Before I forget... "Would not your 'presence' being revealed unite the world?" If it's 'presents' he's Santa. Lol

I liked your Dear God entry. Lots of good questions asked here, including the real biggies that I'm sure NOBODY asks... What are your qualifications to pull our strings this way? And if you really can, then why all this horror??? What's the damned point anyway???

A very good letter in my opinion. I hope you don't get too many Bible verses quoted at you. Lol
Susan ???

This is an absolutely marvelous piece of work. You have asked so many questions of God that each of us probably have had at one time or another. I think there could be a whole thesis written using the questions that you have ask. I wish you the best in the contest Patricia.

We would surely drown in our sorrows if we didn't believe that we have some spiritual support in our hour of need and you have some valid questions here and I'm not sure you will receive any answers but you made the best of all the bad situations and gained love along the way. I enjoyed your story Mia, love Dolly x

I hear you. There are so many unanswered questions about the dilemmas of human conditions. Many wonder why god is silent and has not revealed himself since Jesus walked the earth. Others believe God has left humanity to fend for themselves and figure it out. But what's important is that when we search for him in our hearts, we find him, not in the storms, but in the whispers of his love. Thank you for sharing. Very nice. Check the spacing between verses; they need to be more consistent.

This seems to be a change from your regular posts that I have read in the past. I took a break from reviewing but this work is really good and has a soulful living heart behind it that one can be a fan of. Very good.

    It is different, I thought that myself. But I felt the power behind it was different as well. I am filled with so many questions just as we all are.
