Does God Want Me to Be Miserable?


Despite the pain and loneliness of your situation, God does not want your life to be miserable.
God is not sitting up in heaven, aloof, like some cold, distant observer, unmoved and unloving. Quite the contrary. God is so close to you now – closer than you know.
Even the crosses that you bear are blessings. When you suffer, you learn, you grow, you change, you become wiser, and you become more loving. You become more like Christ. Suffering can be the door to a new life.
Take some time to reflect on your life since your divorce and see if you can identify some good things that have come about as a result of it.
…let us exult, too, in our hardships, understanding that hardship develops perseverance, and perseverance develops a tested character, something that gives us hope, and a hope which will not let us down, because the love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit which has been given to us. –  Romans 5: 3-5

    One of the things I often forget is that God can change my situation at anytime. Therefore I can conclude: I am exactly where God wants me to be at this moment. So, it may not feel great, it may not be what I had planned for my life but, good is and will come from it. I just have to trust.

    The wedding of Chris and Kimmy is just beautiful. They will have a wonderful life. It’s so nice to know people actually meet on Catholic Match and get married. I hope that will happen for me. I’ve been single a long while.
