A crisis of faith.

It's sometimes difficult to see that God really cares. There's pain in the world and it comes in bucketloads and it's difficult to see where His hand comes in to soothe, protect or heal. You see the suffering around and you know that in the bible it says that He cares like a father would but then you wait for respite and it never comes.

And then you wonder if He really cares that much.
Because it seems like He doesn't.

I know that as far as my life's concerned, He's been faithful. I can attest to that. I guess that like in all relationships, we struggle with the other party and a relationship with God's no different. I can't really rant too much about this because I know that with all trials that I've been through, I've become a better person because of it. It's just hard to see while you're being put through the gauntlet.

*igh.

It is easy to wonder where God is, esp with all the chaos that's been going on in the world.

Personally I think a lot of unrest (faith-wise) comes when we don't see what we expect to see (ie; soothing, protecting, healing) in the ways we expect them to be manifested. Some things we will never understand until we go to the other side. *shrug*

Myself, I struggle with pride and rebellion... It's like I have no place in my life for Him. It's very depressing really :)
