“I was going through a difficult time in my life last year due to a relationship that had ended. Not only that. Some friends went through divorce, someone had cancer, and one even committed suicide. So it really shook my faith in God. And my friends tell me I’m someone with a strong faith. Because of this, I started to wonder what God is really like. Is he different from the loving god that I’ve come to know? How could these horrible things happen to good people? Although I’m 100% sure that God is real, I don’t know where he was during those testing times. Good thing my faith’s being restored this year, but with the understanding that life is not all rosy. There are times when it can be difficult. Although these trials let you experience and see how real your faith is. It helps you gain perspective, since your outlook in life can get distorted when you’re sad.”
