He’s done me so wrong that I kinda just want to be like F-ck him, but I guess I have to kiss behind for good things to happen in my life?


But I just can’t, prayer, bible verses, sermons, it all just pisses me off. I don’t even know if I believe or not, but the side of me the does hates him deeply.


Anyone else struggle with this?

Sheesh so that back to back bench didn't help you at all?

Jk, your approach is all wrong. Is there anything currently in your life you can be grateful about? They don't have to be big things.

Faith is not easy.

But God has never said that your life was supposed to be easy just because you believe in him, read the bible, pray and listen to sermons.

Matthew 5:45

Usually the people of God are the ones who go through the most opposition because they are close to God and we live in a word where there is a constant fight between Good and evil spirit.
Remember the snake with Adam and Eve?

You should read the book of Job.
Faith is a journey. You have to continue to push through.

Not sure what is going on in your life, but take it one problem at the time and seek help/advice.

Having people who have a stronger faith and that you trust who can support you during those moments of doubt helps.

God gave you life and gave you everything good that youve ever had. You woke up today, you ate today, you are breathing right now, you hopefully have a roof over your head. This is all more than a lot of other people can say they have. Yet you hate the one who gave you these things?

I commend you for expressing your feelings.

You have courage to feel what most people are afraid to say.

It's interesting that you used the word 'pride'.

I really don’t know what else to call it, it’s like sometimes I try to pray and then my pride just gets in the way like “girl, wtf you doing this ***** don’t deserve this” and then I’m like “You right.” And then I stop....

It sounds like you need deliverance from the demons/unclean spirits within you. Pride is what made Lucifer be cast down from heaven.

The unclean spirits influence your ability to read Scripture and connect with God. If you're interested in the area of deliverance, I have some ministries I know of to help! I've had to do self-deliverance of unclean spirits for myself (and still am doing so).

"...Those who walk in pride, He is able to humble. [Daniel 4:37, NIV] Solomon also had a period of pridefulness that eventually turned into nihilism. He was the richest and wisest man in the world. He decided to live the way he wanted to live and turn away from God who prospered him. He discusses these emotions in the book Ecclesiastes. It's just 12 chapters. Read a chapter each day. God is willing to transform your pride to praise.
