How to regain faith after losing a child?

Stephanie - posted on 08/25/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




My first daughter passed away in a tragic car accident in 2010, she was 8 years old. For a long time I blamed god for taking her from me, but contradicted myself when he blessed me with another healthy baby girl in 2012. Now my dilemma, I want to introduce religion to my daughter and attending the church, I felt angry at everything that the minister was preaching. I have not attended the church since I was younger, but I want to male a better path for her. I also feel if I can find a way to give myself whole hearted to god, he will help me heal and I won't be so depressed. I sit in a rut four years later, still cry uncontrollably, and still have nobody that understands the pain. I am hoping to reconnect with a church and start to move forward, maybe even gain some friendships of this site, being able to meet people who have been through similar events. I want to attend and to be faithful, but find myself uneasy as to what I might say of asked to be saved and give myself, only because of how I felt two Sundays ago(angry)......Please any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.

Stephanie, I am SO sorry for your loss!

I'm not really sure which direction to tell you to turn at this point...but I would say that, first, find a church that you are comfortable in. One that, when you walk thru the doors, you will feel 'at home' immediately.

But, before that, sit yourself down for a talk with God. Explain to Him your feelings, and ask Him to help you work through that in order to be a good Christian example for your new one...My friend, who is a Pastor, is fond of recommending "give it to God".

Just give it all to Him. He'll understand, He'll help you work through it.

Good luck
