    I’m feeling down, today. Sometimes, I feel like God will find me ungrateful but I know this isn’t true. I don’t believe God views me like this but there are days you just feel down or discouraged. How do you think God views us on those days?

    Compassionately, I'd assume. :) One thing I liked about Vaisnava thought was the idea the Krsna (god) was your eternal well-wisher.

    I view our lives as still life paintings with each moment a little bit of the painting.

    17 They cried out, and Jehovah heard; He rescued them from all their distresses.

    18 Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.

    19 Many are the hardships of the righteous one, But Jehovah rescues him from them all.

    — Psalm 34:17-19

    You don't need to worry God will always love you, even during the times you feel no one can love you. It is us humans that are harder to read, we can really be hard on each other, even when we do not want to be.

    I came across this today, and when came across your post, I thought it might help and decided to share it here.



    If I had to do the assignment I would say:

    Deidre;

    God loves you now and for always. For myself I have never met you or know anything about you, so all I know is what you have written and how your spirit has shown through in what you say.

    I find you to be the most sincere and compassionate person here on RF that I have interacted with. Because of this I feel safe to post how truly feel on your theads as they seem to stay civil. Never lose the empathy you show those around you.

    Maybe everyone who reads this can leave a message of what you like about Deidre, it amazing how much words can help.

    The Lord watches over thee. Just ask and you will be answered.
