In reply to anger with God, posted by markwell on November 19, 2011, at 9:55:13

> My greatest concern in life has been having a relationship with God. When this mental illness presented itself 2 years ago I've become terribbly angry with God. I feel like God is punishing me which exasperated my anger, I don't know what to do. Pursuing God was the one thing that helped me through a troubled life. Now I am so angry with God and I don't know how to break this terrible cycle.

Your anger is understandable.

It helps me to recognize that I can't possibly know the mind of God, and that His reasons for why I am ill will not be understood by me in my lifetime. It took me quite awhile to reach the point of acceptance. I doubt that there is anything I can say that will make that process easier for you. I think your pursuit of a gentle relationship with God is healthy.

Sigismund wrote something in one of his posts about his being able to compartmentalize thoughts and feelings. This strategy might help you to look at how much good there is in His Creation without your misery tainting your view.

Hang in there. Depression itself can separate you from your spirituality.

If you keep looking, I'm sure you'll find your way.
