Many people feel they've lost all
faith in God.
It is hard to imagine a loving,
compassionate God who would let things like this happen. What did an unborn
baby ever do to deserve this? What have you done?
You may feel your faith is being tested
right now, and it is completely understandable that you will doubt in God.
Regardless of your religion, "Why, God?" is a universal question
when we face suffering. In many ways, you will have to think your way
through your conflicting feelings about a God that you love and believe in,
but you feel has failed you. Your clergy, pastor, preacher, rabbi, or priest
may be able to help.
I thought of it this way: God is here for
us. He will carry us through our troubles if we let Him, but He does not
guarantee that life will go as we wish. Death and suffering are part of our
life, and our faith is there to help us through it, not prevent it. The last
thing I wanted to do in my hour of need was to cut myself off from the only
person who would not say something thoughtless or let me down--God.
Thoughts for Christians
We should always remember that earth is not heaven. Heaven is our reward
for going through trials, pain, and suffering of this earth and remaining
faithful Christians. God does not always answer our prayers in exactly the
way we want, but He is there, listening, and caring.

things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have

peace and truth.
