melina Posted September 10, 2010 Report Share Posted September 10, 2010 I've always had a sort of fuzzy religious faith. I'm not a church-goer, but I do have hope that there is a higher power, and now especially I'm hoping desperately that there is a life after death where I will see my husband again and we can be together. My grief counselor is the hospital chaplain and she, of course, has faith in this. But I can't help worrying that it won't happen after all. How do we know? For those of you that have faith in God (call him what you wil) - how do you keep this faith in the face of all we've gone through. When my husband was first diagnosed, I prayed every day for God to make him well. But of course that didn't happen. Now I'm torn between not knowing if God exists, and being angry as hell at God for taking such a beloved husband and father. I have found no signs, no signals to let me know my husband is here - or that God is here. I feel no comfort. Any comments would be appreciated. I just want to feel some sort of comfort that in the end - the very end - it will be all right. Because right now, it certainly isn't.
