Spirituality, religion and getting through life's challenges

Posted by Roxie43 @roxie43, Mar 28, 2012

Research has been shown that folks suffering with physical and mental challenges who have faith in something more powerful than us can have positive outcomes versus those that do not.
In fact, some of the stories shared seem like miracles in the area around death and dying.
It is a given that we have many faiths to chose from but does your choice of faith provide you additional support when you need it? Do you believe in your religious or spiritual teachings?
How has religious or spiritual beliefs impacted your life?

I have reallized the importance, the profound and essential value of believing in something more powerful than anything inclluding evil that protects and guides us daily… My faith was tested, almost lost it but I am here with all of you proving that we can get through anything!

Your faith was tested and you were challenged at times beyond belief but at the end of the day your inner strength has prevailed and yes you have proved that we can get through anything if we put our minds to it Sometimes in our lives we just have to face things head on and at the end of the day it will make us stronger Hugs Piglit

I have felt my lowest and now I feel my strongest! One cannot allow others to continue victimizing you…It is not okay to hurt others and I must say that although my faith has been tested for a VERY long time I still have faith..

I wish I could have the faith you all have. Every time I hear a doctor tell me “They don’t know” and a new horrible symptom arises or becomes worse, I think about the moment when my Grandma was on her death bed. I’m 31 years old and I’ve been suffering from some mysterious illnesses for 4 years. We promised each other that who ever got to Jesus first would have a chat with him to tell him to quit picking on either her or me. Unfortunately, she got to go first. I haven’t seen my Grandma in a dream yet or gotten any signs. I do know that since she has passed, I’ve gotten progressively worse at a much faster rate. My faith is all but gone. I want to believe, but I don’t understand what I or anyone else I’ve known has ever done to have to suffer like this. No God of mine would want me to live like this for another fifty years.
