    ...I am so lost in words right now, I just got back my tax refund check and it is not even enough to put a gallon of gas in my roommate car (a gallon of gas cost in American about 4 US dollars a gallon on average).
    I was so counting on Jesus to help me and give me a good tax refund check so that I can pay some money back to my friend (roommate) who has helped me out financially and I was counting on that check to start over. WHY did Jesus do this?
    I just don't get it! WHY? Am I to be trapped for the rest of my life? I am so lonely a lot of times and I really was hoping that tax refund would let me be free, why did Jesus let me down, WHY? :confused: :sigh::bow::(

    You're not the only one who feels let down. I too have been let down. God promised me peace and love and then my family harrasted me and gave me no understanding no warmth nothing! I did everything that God commanded me to do. He told me to give my money to him and he will keep his promise, but my family is still mean to me:cry:
    We'll cry together, maybe this way you won't have to feel alone... and me too. I'm feeling alone at this broken promise thing too :)

    Flower and healing,

    He has not let you down. He is taking care of you. His priorities are not the same as ours. this may be a way He is allowing your faith to grow, rather than your financial plans. God is good and outrageously in love with you. I know you know that, but we all need reminders at times. And also remember your enemy hates you and God, and would like nothing better than for you to distrust God. You are in trials, and trials do end. But during them most of reach a place where we are sure it will never end and we will be stuck in misery forever. That is a lie. You must focus on the truth or you will be miserable.

    I want to give you this link to the new Wednesdays with Beth website. This should bring you to a page with a study called Who Do You Trust? I could only find part 2 and 3, but please watch. They speak a lot to this situration. Here's the link: http://lifetoday.org/video/page4/?search=Beth+Moore

    Just scroll to the bottom of the page. You'll see a place where you can go to different pages. Click the arrow until you get to page 12. You'll find part 2 of Who do you Trust on Feb 4. after you watch, then go to page 11 and you'll find Part 3 on March 4. this will explain it much better than I can. This will help you. Please do it. I couldn't find part 1 but that's okay. what you need to hear is on these two.

    Prayer for you,
    A

    I would think you should probably have gotten more. Is anyone claiming you as a dependent?

    I don't know the answer as to why we and many others are put through the things we are put through. Asking these questions has made me question my faith. The only thought that is reassuring to me in this situation, is that it is all temporary. No matter how long the ordeal seems to be, it has an end.

    I dont know much about the US tax system but when I have tax issues I dont blame Jesus but the government/bureaucrats who administer the tax system.

    When I look at the life of Jesus in the bible I see how he was attacked, hated, despised and rejected. When I look at the life of the apostles in the bible I see how they were attacked, hated, despised and rejected.

    If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. "If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master ' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. John 15: 18-21


    God doesnt promise us an easy ride in this wicked world, He promises to give us the grace to cope and that He will never leave us or forsake us! Ive prayed for you precious sisters :groupray:

    Praying for you in this time! Remember to trust in the Lord for what you are doing, because He will pull you through ANYTHING! You may not see instant results, but the Lord is faithful and present. I know you have probably heard this many times from people, but this is so true and such a fact! I have seen it first hand when the Lord pulled me out of Depression, Drugs, Alcohol, and other stuff! He will be faithful and just to you! Keep seeking Him! Blessings and prayers being thrown up to the Lord.

    Dear Lord,
    Help my sister in this tough time that she is going through! Continue to show her your faithfulness and your dedication to her in this time! I pray that you engulf her with blessings and that she can stay faithful to you through this tough time!

    Amen!

    Darling, just like Hope said, the government is slapping you, not Jesus. I know you know that. But no matter what the gov does, Jesus has got you. You'll be okay.

    Prayers coming your way,

    Hi there my dear sweet loving brother. You are so right these things will come to pass, I guess when the hurt happens it like a cut, fresh in new, and like Hope said it is the government who did this not Christ. Sadly I blamed Him, the evil one (devil) was feeding me lies. I must learn to tell the evil one to step aside!!!
    Thank you my dear sweet loving brother for your kind words God bless you and LOTS of love to you ((((((((((((((((((((BIG HUGS))))))))))))))))

    Oh my goodness my dear sweet loving brother, Jesus did put it on your heart to say what you said, why I know, cause the verse you posted on here IS MY ALL TIME FAV!!!!!!! Thank you for the reminder my dear sweet loving brother. Today is Palm Sunday and I PRAISE JESUS for what he did, But I want to dearly thank you for the reminder of what he did. HE LOVES US ALL!!!!! God bless you my dear sweet loving brother. LOTS OF LOVE to you (((((((((((((((((BIG HUGS)))))))))))))))

    DEAR sweet loving brother, thank you for your kind tender words and your wonderful prayer, I can feel it cause today I have been feeling a bit better about this situation thanks to you all. GOD BLESS YOU and lots of love to you my dear sweet loving brother ((((((((((((BIG HUGS))))))))))))))

    MY dear sweet loving sister, you are SOOO right!!!!! I think it was the devil attacking me, trying to make me mad at Jesus when what our dear loving brother Hope said was SO TRUE! Why blame Jesus for this issue. Yes it does hurt, but I need not to be upset with our Father in Heaven cause really, It is Jesus who cleans up the "mess" that we sinners do! Heck I know that from the experiences in my life.
    I just have to keep patient to see what Jesus wants of me, I am not patient sometimes but I am trying to be.
    God bless you my dear sweet loving sister.
    LOTS of love to you

    I have some personal testimonies of people who were depressed but who are healed of it.
    None would say it was "easy", all would say it was a hard time, but when they got determined to do it God's way, He did what they & the medicines couldn't.

    I'm so sorry you are going through this Petal:hug::hug::hug::hug: I can totally relate to how you feel as I felt pretty much the same way a few weeks back when my mother was ill and my father and I were getting very little support from the people whose job it is to support sick and disabled people and their families. At the time it seemed that my prayers for my mother's healing were falling on deaf ears as she would seem to be getting better only to relapse. As a result I was so angry with God as it seemed like He had abandoned me. However God did answer my prayers as my mother is almost back to her old self now and she did get the support she needed - eventually. God's timing is not always ours. I won't give any advice as all the previous posters have done an excellent job.:thumbsup:

God bless you my dear sweet loving sister and LOTS of love to you:hug::hug::hug: (((((((((((BIGHUGS))))))))))))
