I have one problem after another. Has God forgotten me?


We are sometimes at a loss to know why difficulty is permitted in our lives; however, God has not promised us lives of ease. As a matter of fact, God allows such things to happen that we might be awakened to our need to live in greater dependence upon Him, and in due time God will reveal His greater purposes in our lives.

We trust you will allow these trials to be a means of leading you to make a personal commitment of your life to Christ as Savior and Lord (Romans 4:5, Ephesians 2:8-9, and John 1:12) or of drawing you closer to Him. Then you will find that His comfort and love will more than meet your need; read Ephesians 3:20.

Never feel that God has forsaken you, for He is unchanging in His love and grace. The Bible says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b). Remember, His love is constant and everlasting, as God has revealed to us in the gift of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. May your faith be grounded in Christ Himself that you may know His will (James 1:5, 3:17).

    My job ended July 5 My relationship with my Lady ended July 18. Depression nerves at end. Every where I turned it is turmoil. I am Catholic I have lost most of my faith and hope, I have thoughts that God is a name that you read in a book when I was in school and nothing more. There are to many unanswered questions that no one can answer. When a monster (Hitler) nearly drowned as a youngster and was saved from drowning by a Priest, this monster lived on to murder millions and millions. God new this youngster was evil and what he would do, so why was he saved ? God stood still and let millions of people die, and could have stepped in and saved and ended the horror. and yet he let it happen ! why ?

      You’re right — there are a lot of questions– and we would encourage you to to talk online with a member of our team.

    I am at the end of my rope. I try to live a faithful life. Im not perfect, but I’m clay in God’s hands. And EVERYTHING keeps going wrong. I’m thankful for friends, faith, a home, lack of want. But i have no respite.
    February, my husband lost his job. March, his mother died, throwing us into legal & financial turmoil. April the hot water tank blew & flooded the basement. A kitchen water leak caused $4500 worth of damage. May, his transmission went. In June the IRS says we owe $7500 AND a letter comes from a lawyer saying we owe $2500 on a previously paid bill. In July my daughter was hospitalized for suicidal thoughts. Two days ago, a beloved pet disappeared.
    We all have troubles. Some MUCH worse. But I just need a break & feel abandoned

      My family & I can completely understand. I lost my job of many years to overseas. My family takes care of my wife’s parents and one fell and broke his back and the other has Alzheimer’s…all while I was forced to start my own business our of need. Both of our cars broke down, I still haven’t even done my taxes for this year, & I could go on and on. I often wonder why God allows this type of stuff to go on as well. I will say this, the problems that I go through are sometimes like a badge of honor. I say that because think about what Christ went through here on earth. Also remember that His disciples didn’t fare well neither…11 out of 12 martyred while John (Revelations) was boiled in hot oil, but lived 2 pen Rev. Praying for U!

    Why does God seem to hate me. Please do not tell me He does not, because if He did not, he would have helped me by now. I have prayed and prayed and prayed and I keep coming up empty handed. I just need some kind of light of hope, but thtat is gone. My life is so horrible, I have contemplated just ending it all. I have lost everyone of my family. I am now about to lose all the material things: car, apartment, health insurance, everything. I am being left with nothing, because He took my parents away, and now because of that I have lost my job. I have prayed and prayed for some kind of financial miracle and nothing. In the meantime He blesses people with millions and millions. To be quite honest there really is no point in living.

    1. BGEA says:

      There is a point, and we would urge you to visit to talk online with a member of our team. Consider Psalm 57:2, which states “I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.” We can’t be sure of His timing, but we can be sure that He loves you and has a purpose for your life. Please don’t miss that. We are praying for you.

  4. Adam says:

    People Think I should be grateful for the things I have, which I am grateful for. But being grateful doesn’t make me happy and that’s why people are calling me selfish. I don’t have anything compared to my friends, and that’s why I’m in this constant miserable state.

  5. Patrick Williamson says:

    Thank you for helping me help others God bless all of you

  6. Joseph says:

    I know that Christ loves me – that’s what makes it harder to understand when things go the wrong way.

  7. Georgina Gamboa says:

    Please help me Pray for Strenght.

  8. Donna Appold says:
