      My sister, whatever you're going through, know that this too shall pass.
      Know that GOD has a plan for your life...still! No matter what you've done or what has been done to you, no matter where you've done it, or with whom, GOD still loves you and you can't do anything to change that. Your heart may be so hardened right now because you're angry at GOD for allowing something heinous to happen, but always remember, HE didn't cause it to happen. HE may have allowed it to happen but HE didn't cause it. HE gave us all free will and the free actions of someone else may have caused the mishap, whether it was medical error, ineptitude, carelessness, selfishness, NO MATTER WHAT IT IS/WAS, don't blame HIM. That's exactly what the devil wants you to do, and you give him that, and he'll win! We already KNOW that the devil is defeated, so know that he can only win the battle, but the war's victory belongs to the KINGDOM OF GOD, and all who dwell within its gates.
      Whether or not you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior, or whether or not you acknowledge GOD as GOD, doesn't really make a difference. GOD doesn't need you to believe in HIM to still be GOD, and Jesus died for ALL, yes even you.
      No matter the circumstances, whether you believe it or not, GOD was there with you. You may or may not realize it, but when your heart broke, so did HIS. When you had to say goodbye, HE was there leading you away, down the path HE already sent JESUS to walk for you.
      No matter how much anger you feel, how much venom you spew, how much hate has overcome your life, GOD's love is still so much more than you can feel or manufacture. Go ahead and be angry, you may have every reason for it. GOD created your emotions, so HE wants you to express them. Don't bottle it up, and for all that's holy, don't get bogged down and remain stagnant. Keep moving forward. This too shall pass.
      Isaiah 43:1-3 (NLT) says, "But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you. O Israel, the one who formed you says, "Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom; I gave Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
      Know, my sister, I mean, get this through your grief-bowed head, your bitterness coated heart, your hurt hardened shell, GOD STILL LOVES YOU and wants you to truly know that HE IS WITH YOU THROUGH THIS ROUGH PATCH! So go ahead and cry, HE collects your tears in a bottle. Let HIM know how you truly feel, don't hold back, rage, rant, scream, yell, but let HIM know. HE may be a mind and heart reader, but HE prefers to hear it from your lips. And we know that the first step to fixing a problem is admitting that there is a problem. Whatever it is, HE can fix it, but you have to give HIM the opportunity to do that. Take your mind, mouth and everything else but your faith off of it and WATCH GOD MOVE.
      Remember, this too shall pass, but HE remains constant.
