First let me say this, I have no intentions of whining about what is happening. I’m just explaining what is happening because there are so many out there praying for me and my family, and they want to know what is actually going on. In fact... Through out this entire thing, I have NEVER ONCE asked “WHY ME”. Instead, I’ve been praying my butt off that I, and anyone around me, is learning exactly what I (we) are supposed to be learning.
God doesn’t “punish” us. He forces us to learn what we need to learn. Just like a mom has to let her toddler learn to walk. That toddler will fall many times before being able to do it well on her own. But mom stands there with her arms near that toddler in case she falls, so the fall won’t hurt quite as much. But the fall has to happen, till you learn. Sometimes God has to let us fall down and scrape our knees to learn a lesson. But he is right there to pick us up when we need support.
