lets talk about god.

 I havent really been in the best of moods for a couple of days, things have been getting me so angry so quickly. I get like this every so often so dont panic, im not manic depressive or anything..

a few things have been playing on my mind lately, and im sick of not being able to say what i think because i might upset people, i understand if i say something and someone deosnt agree, thats how the world goes round so im not gonna do it anymore, if people dont like what i say then thats ok,im not trying to force people to believe in my opinions.

first off, i was having a conversation on twitter with courtney, who sadly lost her 3rd son a week ago, and we brought up the 'God' convo. now im full warning you, im not a believer in God, so you may find my opinions insulting, i understand so stop reading if you want to.

i personally dont see how God can exist. for instance, Courtney has lost her 3 beautiful little boys, i dont see how if God was real he would let that happen. people say we are being punished, but that is no way to punish somone at all. We see so much joy in this world. birth,love,family friends. But we also see far to much sadness, if God was real, then where was he for Courtney ? Where was he when my dad got cancer ? where was he when my mum got severely ill after 11 months of looking after my dying dad. ? Where was God when i needed him most ?

He wasnt there.

People like Courtney and me, carry on because we have hope, not hope given to us my 'God' but the hope that drives us forward and keeps going through the good and the bad.

Hope wont bring me dad back, hope wont make my mum better. but hope gives me something to acheive and strive for, and that is something that no pretend God can give me.

*Again, i apologise if my opinions arent to your taste, and i hope that you werent offended by my post.*

It's so interesting you bring this up, because I was just talking to a friend about this last night.

There are people who believe that if they sin some certain way, God won't give them a baby or the things that they want. I so don't agree with that.

I find it hard to believe a divine being would sit up there and look down upon people and say, "Hm I'm going to not let that person get pregnant." or, "I'm going to make that person lose their baby today."

I just don't think that's how the world works.

Thank you for being so open about your views! I did it a few months ago and it feels so freeing. :) -hugs-

Well, I am in complete disagreement with you, but that having been said, I admire you for being able to post what you believe! And really who cares what other people think? they don't have to read your blog if they don't want to! lol. :)

In my opinion God dosen't do these things because we have done something wrong to punish us. I have never lost a child before so I don't know the pain, but in my heart not only would they be saddness there would be joy to know that my little one is in a better place. And that if its my path to have children that one day I would be blessed with one. But with that being said, I am glad you are able to say what you think and I am not judging you in any way!

I appreciate your opinions. You did a great job explaining your thoughts and no one should judge you or feel offended for what you believe. We are all privileged to have our own beliefs and that's great! One of the best things about Twitter, Facebook, and blogging is that we can all accept each other for who we are. We are here to help each other through some really difficult times.

I do believe in God and I don't necessarily have the words to explain to you my feelings. I don't know why God allows some things to happen. I don't know why I lost my baby or why Courtney lost 3 children. It's awful and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I don't know if I will ever know why these things happen. I definitely don't believe this is any form of punishment for things we've done wrong. I also don't see my relationship with God as a crutch to help me through this. But I am trusting Him to help me heal and hope that He'll bless me with another baby in the future.

I enjoyed hearing your thoughts. Thanks for posting this. :)
