When did you lose your faith in God? WHy did you doubt him? Did he experience make you stronger or did it totally turned you away from him? :)

Yes, I did experience it. There is one thing in my life I've been praying for many years, but haven't gotten it, or even an answer from Him. So I doubted Him, and complaint. You know, it's quite suffering. I even wonder why I didn't leave Him completely then. But it's true that I still went to church in bad situation for several years until June, in 2008. Once I talked about my trouble with a sister in church, she prayed for me. It was amazing! I felt my change within two weeks, though I did nothing. He changed my heart. Today I'm still praying for that important thing, and waiting. But it's surprising myself that I told others "I believe God will give me what I prayed". I never said words like this a few years ago. But now even I don't get, I still say this. I don't remember everything clearly, but I do know He is here in my life all the time.

No I haven't lost faith in God. I must confess that there are times when I don't understand why things are happening not the way I expect them but I am confident that God is in complete control and He is the sovereign God. We may not see the reasons now but we will in the future and all things work together for good to them who love God and are called according to His purpose. If we turn away, God will still be God, and we will just be making things even harder for us. To else we can turn to, to ourselves? How reliable ourselves are? God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts not our thoughts. But we can be certain of His love for us and that He cares for our well being. enjoy life!
