"God are you there?"

by Abbey

My life is so confusing right now. My family and I just moved to PA, and we are already moving again. This isn't the first time something like this has happened though.

It seems very constant. I look through the midst of all this tragedy and find myself asking, "God are you there?" why would God put me through something so painful.

Never having the same home for more than two years, up's and down's with money, and just plain struggles with faith.

But you know this is all to make me stronger. I luv music, I pour my heart and soul into it. Mostly writing songs. I have big dreams one day, dreams for using my talents for God, because I know I can. I'm just waiting for him to open that door.

So my prayer to all those teens out there who feel like giving up on anything cuz it's obvious God's not there, is to pull through it. Because I know that God won't bring you to it, without bringing you through it. I know God will deliver me from this hard time.

So just don't give up, because if you allow God to come into your life and transform it, you have no idea what He can do with you.

Never, Never, Never Give Up
by: Shelley

Winston Churchill had a famous speech that was just 5 words...."Never, Never, Never Give Up." Those words seem to summarize your story right now, Abbey.

Isaiah 43:2 says, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all‑surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."

These verses are a good reminder that God will be with us during the hard times. Struck down, but not destroyed!

Keep us updated, Abbey on your music ventures and how your move goes.

God is There
by: Star_Marie

I see your strength despite your frustrations with how things are in your life. You are right in that God never lets go and that through these things, we become stronger. Knowing this doesn't always make us feel better, but we can rest in the hope that is found in God and in His love for each of us personally!

Some verses that come to mind for you:

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39)

This is a great reminder that no matter what we go through, God is always there. Even if we can't feel Him, He has promised to never leave us or forsake us. And yes, we will face tribulation, but through Him we are conquerors in Him in anything.

Other verses: James 1:2-4 and Proverbs 3:5. Of course there are MANY more.

God loves you so much!
