I ask myself the same question almost daily. On my knees, on my hands and knees, crying. In my prayer group at church. I just don't understand how much longer this has to last. It hurts so much and if I am supposed to learn from it, I am ready to learn it and move on. I want my life back. In the few times when I feel well, I feel such a welling up of gratitude to God - and then it gets yanked away again and I am again crawling in the floor, crying.
Someday, maybe I will understand. In the meantime I try so hard just to accept and surrender.
