"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

A Negative Answer, a Vestige of Hope

My mother has always told me that "God always answers, but sometimes the answer is no."  That's what happened in the case of "Sandra's" mother.

I am sad to announce that "Sandra's" mother passed away two days ago from liver cancer.  Here's the thing, though: I know for a fact that God heard our prayers because I could literally feel them being listened to.  There was a special connection between my prayers and God's ear--and therefore, I'm assuming, everyone else's prayers and God's ear--this time around.  I know that God listened, and I know that we were heard.  The fact that God's answer was "no" does not contradict this.

Prayers are always worth the effort, because God is always listening, and we never know when a "no" will become a "yes".  In this case, however, even though God said "no", we can take comfort in the fact that God exists, is really real, and is aware of the situation.

Please continue to pray for "Sandra" and family in their grief.

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
