The Reluctant Messenger
What kind of God would allow His child to go through this? GOD, I have nothing, YOU have taken it all away! How could You let this happen to me after I have given You my life? YOU have given me more than I can bear! Where are You when my needs need to be met, GOD? YOU have forgotten me, left me out to blow away in the wind! Never did I expect that trying to do the right thing would be so hard and require so much. I had hit rock-bottom, with nowhere to turn. I was sleeping in a donated car that had stopped running, and eating peanut butter sandwiches and cold oatmeal was getting old. The questions kept swimming aroundin my head, Was this my fault? Did I make some mistake? Is this what I get? When I came to Chicago to attend Moody Bible Institute, I asked God to make me more like Him. Never did I expect to be left for dead. This current scenario wasn t even a conceivable thought to me. I thought I knew God much better than this. Then He reminded me of my past.
