An increasing number of people have been asking me if I'm angry with God about my health problems and so I thought I would share how I feel about God, my faith and my health.
I have been lucky enough to have had a close and real relationship with God for most of my life. We drifted a bit during my early twenties, but like good friends when we got back in touch it was like we had never been apart. I have doubted, that's normal, in fact that's healthy, but I have always kept my eyes wide open and without fail I have seen God in the world, in people and in situations and that has kept my faith alive and real.
So how do I feel about God now as I am confronted day in and day out by ill health.
The answer is simple; I feel comforted and held and loved
I am not angry at God.
He didn't cause this to happen.
I am thankful to God that He is with me through this.
I am grateful to God that He is healing me emotionally so I can cope.
I am relying on God to keep me going and keep me safe when I don't feel it.
I am resting in God's love.
I am not angry.
I am grateful.
