Remember what Jesus said on the cross

Expect the same

Did you expect everyone to love you
Because you love Jesus
No you would be attracted on all sides
Laught at ridiculed oppressed and in the end
You will face the baptism of fire

Look at all the other apostles
They all faced the baptism of fire
Beheaded and killed
Only john lived to old age
But he was thrown into boiling water
And suffered exile

You were bought with a price
Your body is not yours
You are here to glorify God
Not to glorify yourself

I have lost faith a thousand times
I know what you are going through

Why did you come to Jesus in the first place

I know the answer
The same answer why others as well as myself have come to Jesus

It is because the father had sent you
And he will raise you up in the last days

When I lost faith I turned to to Bible
To drink the water of Jesus Christ
I no longer thirst anymore

I will let the Shepard know that he has lost one of his lambs
He will come looking for you
And he will not rest until you are found
Because you are one of his flock

Congradulations... You have finally seen the light!

And it ain't found in religion

It seems arrogant to assume that He would pay special attention to you for some reason. Perhaps you ought to revisit Job.

I disagree. The Bible is littered with examples of God giving people special attention.

God will help you, but you also have to help yourself. Trust Him, yes, but understand that you can't just stop living and expect Him to pick you your tab.

So he just picks up the credit for those who help themselves?

Sounds like you are going through a rough time. I try to leave big life decisions for a time when I am more settled and calm.

I am sorry people jumped in here to belittle you or point out how wrong you are etc. You are NEVER wrong about decisions for yourself. You are just experiencing You.

The only prison we are in, is the one we put ourselves in, step out of it look back and realize you were never locked in to start with, whether thats religion, a relationship or work etc.

Religion or No religion, just be kind to yourself and know yourself, that way things may flow more naturally.

best of luck.
