Unhappy With God

Is it ok to be unhappy with God?  Do you have to be content with all that happens and simply say "I know you have a plan, so I'll accept it."  Is it okay to be upset for a while?

 My oldest son took his own life 5 months ago.He was 31 years old. I'm still struggling with his decision to end his life. He has 3 children that he loved with all his heart and he was a wonderful father. I know life wasn't easy for him, he had a criminal record which made it difficult for him to find a job, and he struggled with drugs. His marriage wasn't perfect, they had problems.( Who's doesn't) But he wasn't a quitter. He tried really hard to turn his life around and be a good decent hard working man. And he had a familly who loved him and cared about him and tons of friends he could have reached out to. I just wish he had talked to me or somebody, I miss him so much. My heart is broken.

I lost my husband at the end of June 2012. It was a tragic accident. I know everything happens for a reason and that God has a plan for mine and my families life.  It was only 5 days after his birthday and 2 days before my birthday. We were together for 20 years. Every day is still a struggle, missing him and needing him.

My youngest son, Nick, age 22, passed away just a few weeks ago. It was a violent, accidental death; some say it was suicide, and maybe I'm in denial. But, I do feel that it just a horrible, awful, preventable tragedy.

I have always felt like everything in my life was somehow a blessing, challenges and problems a learning experience. Not while I was going thru them, probably, but upon reflection, as the storms seemed to pass and the sun began to shine again, I would always tell myself and my children that everything was fixable, that we could overcome anything. I had a faith, even though I didn't read the bible or faithfully attend church, I prayed and believed this mantra. Now, I feel upset and disappointed in God, myself, and my son. And this makes me feel even more grief. I am seeking the help of many; I have a strong and faithful support group which includes many family members, friends, co-workers, a therapist, my doctor and people who walk in the faith of God. I know that there are many people praying for me and all of the people affected by the loss of my son, Nick. I am grateful, as I am having trouble doing this myself. I have my eldest son, Scotty, to love and protect, and I am trying so hard to walk with him thru his pain. Just two years ago, Scotty almost died when his kidneys failed. When he survived, I rejoiced. Last year, Scott and Nick's father donated one of his kidneys to Scotty. Another miracle. Scotty is doing fabulously; he and his sweet fiance had already began planning their wedding, which is just two months away(although, not much preparation has taken place, yet). So, see all of those blessings, and now this.

I have lost loved ones, but not like the loss I had September 29th, 2012.  My

fiance', Pastor John, passed away after heart surgery.  He was the most loving,

kind and understanding man I have ever had in my life.  I finally got to experience

a real Christian love relationship for the first time in my life.  We were to marry on

October 20th, 2012.  It is still new to me and I am grieving.  It is like I got almost

to te end of a book and the remaining pages are gone.  I will miss him so much.

It is like half of me is missing.  I have been through tough times all of my life, just

one hard hill to climb after another.  This time I am looking at this "hard hill" and wondering, am I going to make it?  I know God is there and He helps us.  I will

hope and pray that everyone who is going through a loss will find peace again.

I loss my husband who I was with since we were 14 years old. So I can relate losing someone so dear to you can be devastating and life shattering. This December will be 3 years since his passing, it still rough and your right you never "get over the death." We need to learn to live with our new reality and live differently because of it. Some times when someone so special in our life leaves it’s impossible to be the same person you were. After the death you find yourself wondering who am I without this major part of my life, how can I live without this person in my life? I've found that prayer in the morning and night and listing to worship throughout the day, reading the word has helped restore my love for life. Pray to god ask him to help you seek a new way of living with this grief in your heart. He will transform you into a new person; simply open your heart to your healer. I wish you many blessing and pray that you continue to seek god every day, it's the only way. Peace be with you.

Thank you for sharing your story.  It is unbelievable what kind of things can happen in this fallen world, but it is amazing to see how God is helping you and your family through it.  Thank you for your inspiration to draw closer to God in times like that rather than push Him away.

Here is a link to the follow-up story that was done about our family and how God is bringing about healing from a great tragedy.  I hope you are blessed by it.
