I think I'm done with God

My friend snapping did it for me. It’s like God never wants to see me happy…

It might seem that way but that’s not true. Believe the word not your emotions. Your heart may need a lecture regarding what's true (Ps 42:11, Jer 31:3, Jn 10:10).

I've been lonely all my life...I'm just like if you can't find it in your heart to give me a friend to keep me company ...could you yourself at least talk to me.

We must draw near to him (Re 2:4). If he says that he will stick closer than a brother, than it’s true (Pr 18:24). We’ve got all kinds of tests to pass. Demonstrate that you’re still there even when he seemingly is not (Deut 31:8, Heb 11:6). He’ll be back.

I've asked for years to hear God speak to me or feel his presence...something! And I got nothing...Nothing. I asked.  I tried and still nothing.

All that God does is good. We aren’t better than him, nicer than him, etc. If that’s the way it’s going to be then say, “Yes, Lord. You want me miserable right now? Yes Lord.” We must get over being offending by what he’s allowed for us in this life. Phil 4:11 Besides, you’re not seeing what’s happening on the other side of the scales (2 Co 4:17). Angels are watching in the stands (Heb 12:1). They’ve never sinned--never not loved God; so, to them this is foreign. Praise him when you’re at your lowest low. They’ll watch in wonderment and it will infuriate Satan. We get a new earth. They get a new heaven (Re 21:1).

…[M]y only friend who I loved so much descended into madness, 3 years...gone just like that.  Why let my friend descend into madness?

It’s a mad time (2 Ti 3:3 KJV, Ro 1:31 KJV).

Why couldn't he be blessed with a sound mind like a lot of people? Why? I tried to make friends with a girl at work and she hasn't texted back, so it’s like I can't have anything. Why does God just pick on some people?

Everyone has felt picked on at times (1 Co 10:13)—that doesn’t make you feel better—great he picks on others, too. He knows how to turn up the heat, no doubt; but, he will reward you for your stick-to-a-tivness.

Why is God so jealous he can't stand to see me genuinely happy with or without him...

God’s jealously is a good thing. Coveting is wanting something that doesn’t belong to you. All men belong to God; so, his being jealous for mankind is right and appropriate. If he were not jealous for you, then that would mean that he doesn’t love you. Ex. 20:5

…I'm just like am I just here as Gods special punching bag? When he gets mad...its time to mess with me? I'm over it....

Where else are you going to go? Jn 6:68

… I never did anything to Him except try to be close and I won't try anymore...I'm not ...I'm done. I mean what's the point so I can reach out and God can be silent some more? I think I've learned my lesson.

You get your tears wiped away someday (Re 21:4). Who wipes his tears away? Is 53:3, Jn 11:35.  He yearns (Jas 4:5) and his needs will go unmet because not all will go to heaven (Eze 33:11). If you really want to get him, then reject him like everyone else (Ex 23:2, Mt 7:13).

“He loves you but he will live without you.” ~ J. Vernon McGee

The LORD is righteous in all his ways,
And holy in all his works.
The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him,
To all that call upon him in truth.
He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him:
He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
The LORD preserveth all them that love him:
But all the wicked will he destroy.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD:
And let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.  Ps 145:17–21

I have been in deep despair. I have lost family members to death and others to circumstance to the point that I was literally alone. I ended up in a foreign country with absolutely no one. I was angry at God. He took my parents, my family...I was so very alone.

Jonah was angry with God. Naaman was angry with God. But God still performed miracles in their lives. I am not promising miracles. But I do know that God can restore and heal.


Because of your suffering, you are able to help others. Praise God.

Sometimes we're not supposed to handle things by ourselves, we need others....[S]ometimes God wants to put people in front of us, and answer our prayers through them.

Good point. God may wish to use another person to answer your prayer (e.g. intercessory prayers, helps, etc.). Rom. 12:6–8; 1 Cor. 12:4–30

Stop focusing on yourself, and focus on the Lord Jesus.


Good point. It not all about us. It’s about him. He’s calling out a people for his namesake.

Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation [Exod. 15:12–13].

“Israel was a redeemed people. The redemption of the people had to come first. That is the important thing today. God is not asking you to do one thing for Him until you have been redeemed and have accepted His salvation accomplished by Jesus Christ upon the cross. He is not asking you for anything. He is not demanding that the world do anything. God is not saying, “If you will prove yourself, come up to a higher standard, wash your face, rake your yard, and put up a good front, I am willing to be your good neighbor.” God does not want anything from the world. He is saying to a lost world, “What will you do with My Son who died for you?” Listen once again to verse 13: “Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.” It sounds as if they are already in the Promised Land. As far as God is concerned, they are in the land because He is going to take them there.” McGee, J. V. (1997). Thru the Bible commentary (electronic ed., Vol. 1, pp. 249–250).

We are told to keep our eye on the prize, you get it when the race is over.

We’re in a marathon (Phil 3:14). [​IMG]


Being happy, joyful and content are choices.


The children of Israel had to celebrate Tabernacles (Sukkot)—be happy! They may have said, “But I don’t feel like being happy.”  Be happy--there’s something we can thank him for.

Feast of Tabernacles

“13 Celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days after you have gathered the produce of your threshing floor and your winepress. 14 Be joyful at your Feast—you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns. 15 For seven days celebrate the Feast to the LORD your God at the place the LORD will choose. For the LORD your God will bless you in all your harvest and in all the work of your hands, and your joy will be complete.

16 Three times a year all your men must appear before the LORD your God at the place he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles. No man should appear before the LORD empty-handed: 17 Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the LORD your God has blessed you.” The Holy Bible: New International Version. (1984). (Dt 16:13–17). Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan.

You certainly won't find it cursing the Lord.

That’s right.  Never in scripture is anyone rewarded by dissing God. Respond rightly. He’s good in all he does (Ps. 145:7).   

“No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:62 (NKJV)
