Do you want to see impact, life transformation and blessing that you never thought possible? Do you want to receive God-sized, Kingdom-level answers to your prayers? Commit right now to make your Bible the center of your life. Give God the desire of His heart. He wants to be with you and spend time with you.

Be so committed that the habit of communicating with God takes a permanent hold on your life. Talk to the Lord about your desire to be with Him. By verbalizing your commitment, you remind yourself to have a fruitful walk with God. Find devoted time to be in fellowship with Him. Miraculous things will begin to happen when we refuse to leave God alone. If you commit yourself to prayer, you will see the abundant life that comes from a powerful prayer life. Even if your faith is fading, God remains faithful toward you. I honestly have no one that likes me or loves me or people seem to hate me.

My neighbors literally deliver packages of doo doo in gift bags and throw it over the fence on my yard and roof. They smashed the beautiful memorial tree in my garden. My daughter does not call me at all and I see her once a year or not. Everyone pretty much hates me and I ask God every day to take me from this world. I ask him often how long can I endure and suffer?

I was raped and tortured since I was 3 and predators always seem to target me. It never stops. I turned into a bit of a warrior so they hate me more. I A day does not go buy without the people being hateful. I am a rug. A worm. A broken person. I do know that Jesus was a man of grief and sorrows and he said that they would hate us like they hated him. He said that if we endure to the end; he promises us eternity in paradise with him where there will me no more sadness crying or pain.. Psalm 23 says that Jesus will walk with us and give us the Spirit and his word and we will have victory over our enemies and they will never be able to do anything to harm us ever again.

I hate my life and myself but it is not mine to take. Therefore, I choose God and I choose to endure because Jesus did for us. In the eye of the storm he remains in control, he is with you every time you run, and he is allowing these things to happen, not because he hates you, but because good will come from it if you only trust in him.

I do believe that God hates some and loves others. I am one of the hated. How horrible I must be that my whole family shuns me, and God, too. Does God just get off on making people for the sole purpose of kicking? God may hate us or God may love us, but the answer is so what? What are we going to do about it? One cannot win against God, who is all powerful. If He hates you, there is no hope. If God had a drop of mercy, He would wink the souls He hates out of existence completely. No life, no pain. He makes sure whenever my mother forces me to church i get really sick and feel extremely depressed.

It clears up after we leave the building. Im the same My life is a living hell so I really feel that God hates me but I will still overcome all not for him but for me and my mom. Believe me I know exactly where you are coming from. I feel the exact same way as you do. I know that I am very tired now. Repent for anything you have done that may have hurt His heart and focus on the beautiful things that are all around you when you step outside seeing His beautiful creation like hearing the birds chirp, smelling the flowers, seeing all the beautiful people walking and playing outside enjoying life.

Thank Him for being alive and being able to improve or be a better person than you were yesterday to seek His will for your life to bring Him glory. Take some time to read the Word and start a journal and write down any revelations or scriptures that relate to your life and apply it to your life.

You are not perfect but you are not the person you use to be last year. Love the Lord with all your heart and soul and continue the journey of your life with Him, because without God we are nothing. Those who have repented of their sins and put their trust in Christ have an eternal bliss to look forward to where they will eternally and perfectly praise and love their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God bless yoi! How are we supposed to trust that Heaven will be good either? The same God who says He loves me and works things for the good, says Heaven is good.

God has failed me in everyday, in everyday for 25 years. I held on for decades trusting him, waiting for Him to ever come through, ever prevail, ever give a damnm to ever even fill my most basic needs.

Heaven is not very appealing. I would choose to not exist at all a million times over. Why would you choose to belittle someone who is suicidal anyways? Awe no! Be sure to talk to somebody you trust and let it all out and they will reassure you and make things easier for you.

God loves you. You can do this i, a stranger, believes in you! Wish you the best of luck. Have a blessed life! I live on a couch, I have pain every day — all day. I have a hernia now for 5 years, and dizzy spells from a fall off a building 10 yrs ago.. I live in nashville an hate this concrete jungle, I get in moods were I drink with ibuprophan to kill the pain. Lottery millions — for enjoyment I figure out how much I can give to strangers an family.. It calms me. But I get no answers. But no answer… I am so broken I have no problem giveing my life to someone in need. But my answered go unheard..

I have tried to be humble an let God take my life an use it as he dreams fit. I cannot vomit Susie because I. Am afraid. As a boy turning clay into sparrows on the sabith. Dear Suiside, I love you and I totally understand you. All these people out there have only their own advantages in mind. I deeply dislike these people. You cannot believe them. It makes me sick to live between these people. I love you because you feel like me. Suiside if in the meantime you committed suicide already, god will take you in his arms and love you.

I know that. I agree and i can tell you he wont kill you. You will suffer till the end. I ask every night for death also. It makes you wonder the bible says god takes care of his flock and i suffer so if it lies about him taking care of his flock is the whole concept of god and the bible false ive been going to church and asking for help for years.

I dont care anymore i pray if there is a god bless me with the courage to eat a bullet. That seems to be the only way. Cheat lie and steal your way out of misery coz that seems to be how to get rewarded. Oh My goodness I just read gobs of this weeping and wailing, and the pathetic blame the devil response to human suffering.

Follow that logic and one can conclude the devil delivers on his promise but God does not! People, People, People stop and listen to yourselves sniveling in self righteous pitty as if you are all too good to experience suffering. You are selfish you think you deserve that which you lack knowledge and ability to have.

A Christian-inspired seed for the day!

Christ died for you! If he never answers another prayer or comforts you what is that your business? He already paid the price of your salvation and you want what? Oh ye of little faith and that is your problem! You talk like babies crying cus you cant have candy. Grow up accept the pain and live! You do not receive because you ask amiss, learn what that means. And to you teachers and preachers who throw arround Gods love and devil warfare as if it is the biblical cure all. Shame on you! You do nothing to help these people because you are too clean to get your hands dirty.

These people go to churches you see them every week. Pure religeon and undefiled is this to visit the fatherless and widdow in their affliction and to keep yourselves unspoted from the world. But you love the world nevermind the spots! Get to know these people who are suffering right under your nose and help them grow in their suffering.

Rather than the truth that we are personal to god! Jim Baker, Jerry Falwell, and whats the guys name that picked up hookers…. Clens your hands you sinners, purify your hearts you double minded, Obey God regardless and maybe he will have mercy upon you. I feel like the church has lied to me all my life and that my being a good person was all a big joke. I pray and pray and situations get worse. I really believe that God is angry at me or his plan if for everything in my life to be destroyed.

Either God is all good and powerful or He is not. My being anally raped at age 12 was MORE than enough to convince me that God was one of the following three, or all: Impotent, ignorant, or non-existent. I know that God wants me removed from this earth, every time I try to live a new life the church always finds a way to take me right back to the worse time in my life.

I know your going through a lot. Your article is as dumb as a belief in god. No good bring would be as horribly rotten as this monster you call god.

How Do I Respond to Someone Who Has Hurt Me?

If there is a hell then Hope you and the batters go there. The God of the world is the one who decieve people and does not like people. I dont think God the father hates anybody. Its a very misunderstood religion system. So sorry you felt like it was God the Father. For me, I have had so many tragedies and painful experiences. It all tends to isolate me from others. Tragedy and pain can be very isolating. I encourage you to reach out in whatever way you can whether to a friend, a church community, or a professional to get any support you might need.

Most of the time people are at fault, it is their terrible choice that led to you being raped. God has allowed people to make their own decisions and when people misuse it, God can punish them you know…so pray for protection, maybe God wanted you to rely on him and possibly grow from the experience and encourage others who feel miserable.

You wrote your comment quite a while ago. I hope you are not feeling as isolated as you once were. For me, the good thing about isolation is that it pushes me to know Jesus better. The more I pray the worse my life becomes. If you only knew what I have been through… when will it be my season???????????????????????????????? M — I am so sorry you are feeling so badly. It sounds like you are experiencing what St. I do believe that God hears our prayers, even when it seems no one is listening, and that God loves us and wishes the best for us always.

I hope you will be able to find someone who can support you in this time of great sorrow maybe a friend, a congregation, or a helping professional. Please know I will be keeping you in prayer. Ya, nobody has an answer why God hates some of us. God is not a loving and caring God. Millions of people suffer and he does nothing. I agree John. I think the history of Christianity is a bad practical joke. I think God is all powerful,. And capable of enormous cruelty.

Infinite power in His hands is devastating to many of us. Since I was brought back everything turns sour. My friends have left. Disabled No matter how much I pray the opposite happens. My world keeps becoming smaller. If there were or if he cared a thing about any of us, our lives would be quite different. For a long time I tried to believe there is no God. I wish I could believe that. It would all be a lot easier. But I believe there is a God. God does not hate you. I have done this. I want so badly for you to see what I see.

God is better than a human. I promise. I believe it is the added stack of negative events. It began only alright days and bad days.

I started to question perhaps, karma or luck, as I have never been a seriously religious person. However, I felt I did everything I can, in fact, I was smart, i was kind sensitive, and welcoming. Maybe, if I wait for a long, long, long time, things might clear up. Good luck to everyone, as no one deserves any bad days. No one deserves to cry daily. Step into the light. What light? I used to pray every morning and every night. The more honest I became, the harder it got to continue. I feel alone. I am attracted to very young girls for some reason. I feel like so many people hate me. I have to keep my attraction a secret.

This makes me sad. I fear even my own mom and son hate me If they really knew me. Children who are sexually abused often struggle with PTSD, depression, substance abuse, sexual dysfunction, low self-esteem, learned helplessness, and a host of other issues, sometimes for their whole lives. Please, please see a counselor who you can confide in. Their job is not to be judgmental but to help you work through unhealthy impulses that could end up hurting someone else as well as yourself. I hope you can get to the root of whatever it is that attracts you to young children so you can be free of that harmful impulse and find peace.

To all whom feel like you face your day alone or gods not there for you. I know the effects of suicide first hand it saddens me that you hurt and feel that you would not be missed because if you read this Well I can tell you that our paths have crossed and I would be saddened deeply by the lose of a beautiful life. I agree to the full there is just no season of peace in any sort of way….. I feel the same way you do. It is devastating to not only have no earthly father, but be abandoned by the heavenly one too!

Firing prayer bullets, listening to prayers on youtube, everything is for nothing and I am tired of having his back turned to me. I can relate to you in this one. Its to the point going to church causes physical pain because of the lies. I wish there was even one aspect of my life that I was thankful for. When bad things happen and you trust God, but He never follows through and turns it to good it leaves you broken in a way no human could possibly break you.

I can handle having the worst luck in the world. Knowing that God created me specifically to live this life is a cruelty beyond comprehension. Unfortunately even after this article I still believe that if God exist he hates me. Too many bad things have happened to me for me to believe otherwise. Nellie, I understand why you would feel that way given all that you have been through.

I hope that you will be able to find the resources you need to seek healing and wholeness in your journey. I wish you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Tell that to the dying from starvation kids of Ethiopia and war torn countries. God may hate us, or God may love us, but the answer is so what? And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

That is contradictory to the way I was raised, but I agree with you. At 52 I have nothing to look back on but emotional pain, desperation, depression, loneliness, stress… this list goes on. It actually makes me hope there is no god or gods but rather, just randomness. I do not wish to believe in a deity deities that would choose to bless some and not others. And, I look forward to nonexistence.

Hi ,I lived a life of hardship too. God loves us. To see from your perspective as well, but so much younger pains me. Where am I? I feel so much more different than what I thought I was. I feel like this too. I am not concerned if there is an afterlife and hope that there isnt, because it will just be another level of learning and suffering.

No more pain, just a loss of consciousness. The peace of sleep. As far as I see it, Gods are not worth chasing after. So praying to them to relieve pain and sickness is an utter waste of time. They have no concept of it. My pain and suffering have reached such extreme levels that they have shattered the illusion of a loving God. The ultimate vivisectionist, as C. Lewis put it. You are wrong when you say that God does not know what it means to be human and have physical pain. He was God on earth in the flesh but his words to humanity are ignored or misunderstood. When you die you will be in far worse pain and torment than you can imagine if you do not believe and accept the price Jesus paid for you when He died on the cross.

It is for every humans suffering that Jesus came, died, and rose again. Yes God is in control of everything and allows pain and suffering but few ever take the time to be humble and simply ask him why. I actually have asked and he answered. Many just get angry and never take the time to find out who God really is and why things are the way they are in this world. One of the first things that God showed me when I started asking him why is that from the beginning he wanted a being he could fellowship with that was somewhat like Him.

He gave humans the ability to have choice which His other creatures he created dont have. Our choices and choices of those before us brought pain and suffering into the world. We choose our way most times and just complain and blame God without ever even looking to Him for real help because we expect that help to come the way we think it should or we expect God to make our lives better in the way we think it should be made better. All the while God has given instructions to human kind to follow and because he knows our pain and suffering he sent His Son to open the door of communication with him that is closed when we choose to do things our own way and not His.

God did live in a human body in Jesus. Jesushimself said he and father God were one together. To this day Jesus has the marks of his crucifixion on his body. He really did die and come back to life. Why would he do that? The human that he created you, me, all of us. If you never have please read the Bible specifically the book of John. Jesus spoke in a lot of parables but he also spoke plainly about who he was why he came to earth and what he expects of people. Hell is eternity without God. It is judgement never meant for humans. We choose whether we go there or not.

As evil as this world is God is still present with man and still an active part of his creation. He lets men make choices and does not control us like a puppet master. His presence is still in this world. There is still good working along side evil in this world because his presence is here but when his presence is removed evil takes complete control.

Hell is a place where his presence is known of but the good is completely gone forever. Hell is judgement for the rebellious Lucifer and all the demons that followed him. The only way to go there is to choose the same rebellion….. Please read what Jesus said in the Bible. He explained everything.

There are several of us who have done everything you have said. God has been very transparent with why He has tortured me the way He has. The real irony is He is teaching me most about how selfish He is. Even your whole rant is all about what God wanted, at the expense of us humans. And although Jesus became human to atone for our sins, I struggle with his example. Nowhere did it talk about him calling out to God in pain for decades and God never answering. Jesus also had support, He had friends, He had family. But they were also there for him, how could Jesus every understand to know what its like to spend you whole life without that.

And with a God who left them alone and rejected. Maybe God is using those trials to help you to love Him! Jesus said in the gospel of John that He came to seek and save the lost. Luke I disagree when you claim humans created exclusions and labels. Women, people of color, gays, anyone different were treated like slaves and this is promoted in the divine scriptures. God created human along with human nature knowingly and willingly to torture some.

People believe in God as a coping mechanism because deep down inside they know such entity does not exist and things never do get better. I believe God hates me too, I have suffered with mental illness naturally and also brought on by tons of abuse, I cant seem to compleatly turn my life over I stumble almost every chance I get.

I came tonight to go to a gsthering to honer Jesus death and feel like God threw me out I was sooooo uncomfortable and in sooo much pain physicaly too. This has happened on more than one occasion me trying to go to church feeling all tormented and. Here I sit out in the car while I wait for everone to get done for my ride home.

I am so sorry you are feeling this way, and that even a house of worship did not feel like a safe space for you to be. I encourage you to seek out any form of support you can find, particularly if you are feeling like you want to harm yourself or someone else. Some good places to look especially if church feels too painful for you right now would be in your local hospitals, community mental health centers, or counseling centers.

You will be in my prayers. For that, there are fates worse than death, and hospitals are one of them. Leanna your only advise to everyone here is to seek some help from others. Just so you are aware, this does not help anyone. Dear the forever lost child, if it is painful for you to sit through church, this could be a sign that you have a deeper spiritual warfare going on that you are not aware of. I would also suggest talking to a priest. God hates me show much as well.

It must be terribly painful to go through what you are experiencing, Graham. I am truly sorry that you are feeling this way, and that you have not been able to find any relief for your suffering. I am concerned for you, and would strongly encourage you to reach out to a helping professional — perhaps a counselor, a physician, or a pastor that you know — and ask for help.

Learning to Follow Jesus With Help From Dallas Willard

If you feel like you are in danger of hurting yourself, please go to your closest Emergency Room or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at Leanna, what is wrong with suicide? If someone chooses to die it is their choice.

We all have to die sometime and if we are miserable why not choose yourself how and when? Instead of being force to live a horrible painful life? Obviously God does not care so why should we? Leanna, that phone number exists so they can call the authorities to take away your freedom. They track your phone number from previous calls and build a file on you. Say one wrong thing and the cops show up and take you to the men with white coats. They suck. I agree with Barbara. The problem is that suicide can fail.

There needs to be legislation that allows people to be euthanized if they want to die. Do you want to chat with me because I actually feel the same way. Hence ,why I am here. I think things may seem brighter soon. I believe there is a Good God who loves you and cares about you. And a Devil who is trying to destroy you. You are in a war.

There is a lot of unknown stuff going on. As simple as it can be. God is good and the Devil is bad. Faith is a choice to believe. Make a choice to believe in what you want in life. Start to speak it to yourself. As I speak to you I speak to myself. Our words are powerful. Call yourself a winner. Stand up and fight for yourself. Be careful with your thoughts and the words out of your mouth.

What you think, and what you speak is what your going to get. This is how we fight the Devil with positive thoughts and positive words found in the Bible. How convenient. What sense does that make. God is all powerful. But it is the fault of one of his creations? Where do I sign up? How about realizing that God and Satan are two cheeks of the same arsehole? What, you think he contracted out the building and running of Hell to someone else? But he creates good and evil, by his own words.

OK I would have to say God hate us. If an infinite God can do anything created everything down to subatomic particles, stars, black holes and even the notion of time, dimension even the notion of good versus evil would not exist without his bidding. He made it like this. We are just toys that got thrown away after the funs been had…. Just look at his kingdom description in revelation, the one about his throne in heaven not the one on earth. After all we are made in his image so we naturally crave deityhood. It just comes off to me as a universal case of do-as-i-say-not-as-i-do type of thing.

Prince S. I have a couple major projects going on and need good people! God is very mean. You are 22!! Have you actually read the Bible — the entire way through? Due to an injury that occurred in , I suffer from chronic pain in my upper back, shoulders, and neck.

He strengthens me and reassures me of His unchanging goodness, limitless power, and sustaining grace. They worshipped God and trusted He was with them, even when their situation seemed hopeless. They never doubted the Lord was worthy of their worship v. We can rely on His constant and loving presence. My daughter and I were arranging to attend an extended family gathering.

Because she was nervous about the trip, I offered to drive. But I feel safer in my car. Can you drive it? Somehow I feel protected there. Certain physical places promise longed-for safety in moments that seem dangerous. A sturdy roof overhead in the midst of a storm. A hospital offering medical care. The embrace of a loved one. When her pain became unbearable, Betty and her husband took her to the emergency room. She realized that while she hovered over her daughter anxiously, the Lord is the perfect parent who nurtures His children, comforting them in difficult times.

In the book of Deuteronomy, the Lord reminded His people how when they were wandering in the desert, He cared for them as a loving parent who hovers over its young.

Bible Study and Quotes on “Hearing God” by Dallas Willard

We too may face challenges of many kinds, but we can take comfort and courage in this reminder that our God will never leave us. When we feel that we are falling, the Lord like an eagle will spread His wings to catch us v. Even on her hardest days, she read Scripture and prayed for others before getting out of bed. She spent time with Jesus daily, expressing her faith through her dependence on God, her kind deeds, and her desire to encourage and pray for others.

After Moses spent forty days and forty nights communing with God Ex. He had no idea his intimate connection with the Lord actually changed his appearance v. But the Israelites could tell Moses had spoken with the Lord vv. He continued meeting with God and influencing the lives of those around him vv. We might not be able to see how our experience with God changes us over time. But as we spend time with God and surrender our lives to Him more and more each day, we can reflect His love.

God can draw others closer to Him as the evidence of His presence shows in and through us. She was facing hospitalization and a series of procedures in a city three hours from home and anxiously waited as doctors tried to discover the source of some serious medical problems she was experiencing. Who of us, in youth or later years, has not felt similar fears when facing unwanted life events that are truly frightening? And where can we turn for help?

What comfort can we find from Scripture to give us courage in these kinds of situations?
