OliverOliver, I am also going through a very dark time right now, and it is hard to see the good in what God is doing. Think of Job- He went through tremendous trials and same as you, questioned God and what good could come of it. And God responded to him, asking Job if had in fact laid the foundations of the world? Or put the boundaries up for the oceans? He is saying that you might not see what good can come of this, but He is God, and He KNOWS BEST. Also, the Bible tells us that "All things work out for the good of those who love God." Romans 8:28. The Bible is absolute truth- so you can take comfort in this. God does not promise us a pain-free life- because of sin. We can just look at Jesus, the son of God, to see this. He was betrayed, beaten with whips embedded with glass, had thorns crushed into His skull, had nails driven through His hands and feet, and then was left to hang on a cross until He suffocated to death. If even Jesus had to suffer, then we too, are not immune to suffering. Jesus tells us to "Take up our cross and follow Me." Matthew 16:24. This means that there will be times when following Jesus that will be painful. BUT Gods Grace can heal our wounds! Please believe me in this Oliver, as I am and have been a very wounded person. He promises to give us Supernatural Joy, Peace, Strength, a clear mind, and self control. Go to Him and ask Him to help you deal with your anger toward Him and your grief over your wifes passing. And He is faithful, He will help you. Deuteronomy 7:9 "Know therefore that the LORD your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments." You will feel so much less heartache if you let him help you. Gods Blessing and Love to you, Erin
