Angry at God?
If you do believe in God, but are angry at Him, you may want to talk to your religious leader. Or bring your feelings right to God’s doorstep, no matter how strong they may be.
It may help to keep talking about it, and praying about it,
even if you don’t want to.
Hopefully, you will find your way back to that place where your belief once again comforts you.
Never believed before?
A great place to start is by praying for the
willingness to believe.
This may feel more authentic to you.
You may also want to seek counsel from a religious leader, or someone you know who is a true believer.
They can offer you guidance and may be a great source of comfort.
