I lost my faith several years ago when all the problems started with my boys. It sounds bad writing it down, but I can't help how I feel. I went to church faithfully, was involved, read the Bible several times a day, and thought I truly believed. But as the problems started, the people at church never once tried to find out how my family was. I told my Pastor what was going on and not once did he ever call to ask why I hadn't been in church. No one did. I lost faith in the church. I stopped reading, praying. Now I feel like I'm on an island out in the ocean, all alone with no boat, no lifejacket and no help. I don't know how to get back to where I was, or if I even want to. When things got rough, there was no one in the church who helped, so why bother?
I feel an emptyness now and I just don't know how to fill it.
