Why does God help some and not others?

My life is a mistake. Everything has gone wrong from day 1 and now i’m too old to salvage anything from it.

Why did it have to happen?
I simply do understand why some people have it all, even small children or animal that’s live better than me, while I suffer year after year. People who suffer extreme circumstances can not possibly be excused of causing the damage themselves, who in the world would purposely create extreme suffrage?

Why did my life have to turn out so bad, why did things have to fall this way for me, but not the person next to me? Who decides, because like I said, there are kids and animals who are better off than me, they don’t do a thing, they just have. And yes i’ve tried, but what good is it.

Now i’m an old hag waiting to die.

  • God helps other people so that you feel like shit

    God takes your life “you get old and die”

    We will all lose this battle, nobody cheats death and the good life can change overnight.

    We have no choice, it is not like this by accident, its ment to be this way.

    Accepting these facts will make you stronger

  • Who wouldn’t want to be a kid again, where life was about popcorn, lollies, water slides and watching film clips. Well that is what mine was like anyway. Adult life is not what it is cracked up to be. But it is actually much more interesting. Not easy and straightforward like it seemed, but how boring that would be? Knowing and growing old with friends from childhood – priceless. Loosing your cuteness, but growing so much in wisdom – it’s worth it. Not taking life for granted and being totally grateful for the blessings that come – life is getting shorter. Movies, music, travel, nature, food.

    Cheer up, there is so much to be happy about.
    I am not by any means one of those chirpy bubbly positive people. I lay awake last night with chronic hay fever wondering what on earth I did to deserve the torture of not being able to breath the air. Lol. But I get up, forget about that… hope for a better night sleep tonight and enjoy the sunshine.
    God is irrelevant. What cannot be seen is just a fantasy.

  • As JayL pointed out, I feel your plain but you HAVE TO keep believing that one day your life is going to change but for that to happen you need to remember two things: God helps those who help themselves and Believe that you already have something and you shall have it. STOP having such a bleak outlook on things. We all go through real messed up things in life, some worst than others. Please remember that not Always God will take you out of a situation, however, He will give you the strength to get through with it. People always believe that the grass is greener on the other side but the thing is, its not. It’s just more grass. Be thankful for what you have rather than pining away after what you don’t have. many times we missed blessings and true inspirations because it doesn’t come in a package we expect.
    This has been passed around with various versions through emails and websites. its something you should keep in mind.:
    “The man whispered, “God, speak to me.” And a meadowlark sang.
    But, the man did not hear.
    Then the man yelled “God, speak to me.” Thunder rolled across the sky.
    But, the man did not listen
    The man looked around and said, “God, let me see you.”
    And the stars shined brightly.
    But the man did not notice
    And, the man shouted, “God, show me a miracle.”
    And, a life was born.
    But the man did not know.
    So, the man cried out in despair, “Touch me God, and let me know
    you are here.” Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
    But, the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
    So remember, don’t miss out on a blessing because it
    isn’t packaged the way that you expect.
    Take notice of the blessings around you.”

    Hope this helps

  • Your life sounds like mine but what got me mad was when the bad got what seemed like the blessings and I was always struggling. I find comfort in knowing that it’s better to suffer now then in the after life. I know the way you feel is so lonely, you got to beat it remove that feel sorry for my self
    ways. Old hag or not you still count so you got to keep on keeping on your at the end of the road so don’t fall off the path because it’s a long drop.

  • You should help others. Many persons need your help like property, money, clothes, books, furniture, medicines, thoughts; friends etc. God helps all but takes His own time. Think +vely.

  • A faith in God helps teach people how to help themselves, with the premise that they will be in a position to help someone else who will then see the light, and so on… Darkness and evil will prevail if no one is pushin it back with the stenghth and wisom of God. He’s not gonna do it for us.

  • Aw!!
    I think you need a hug right abouts now!
    Focus on the positive! Reject the poison of negativity!
    Find a way to laugh about something every day.
    Chin up, girl!!
    I hope you soon find something that brings you peace.

  • You have to earn what you get. You ARE NEVER too old to salvage your life. EVER.
    YOU are why your life has turned out so bad. If it is at all bad.

    The story of our lives are made from the decisions we make. Go make your life a wonderful story. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE

  • I understand how you feel, I’m an survivor of some pretty extreme abuse, but one thing that you must understand and believe is that you can change the outcome. I’ve had to bust my ass, and believe me when I tell you, I’ve been dealt some pretty bad cards. Just take one day at a time and start digging up instead of down. I hope this helps, and no It’s never easy.

  • I don’t know what exactly is making your life so horrible but calm down. You’re relying on god when he isn’t going to do anything.

  • I am sad to hear of your pain. Yes, many people have terrible lives. But as Christians we have hope. We believe this life is not the end. I, for one, am looking forward to the better world – when I go to Heaven. But meanwhile, keep the faith and keep praying to God to help you. Be persistent.

  • god does not exist you only think he does and you take what people do themselves or other people do for people and put God in the place of their hard work

  • Has it occurred to you that perhaps there is no god, so no one gets helped, and the reason your life turned out the way it did, was because you spent the whole life waiting for god to do something for you instead of making it for yourself?
