Only the good die young

I’ve always wondered, is this all there really is to life? What’s the point?

I’m sure there are some people out there that have some reasoning or logic to answer this question, but call me ignorant or uneducated, I don’t understand why people must go through a life of suffering, for no reason.

Why does it seem like all of the good people on this earth, die young? Meanwhile there are evil and abusive people everywhere that seem to live to 100. I don’t get it. That seems to leave the rest of us with more and more evil to deal with.

They say, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”….stronger for what? I didn’t realize that life was meant to be a struggle. I’m not sure where I got the idea that life should be filled with happiness, but long ago I realized that that is a myth, a farce, a misunderstanding that children believe in.

In some aspects I do understand the quote from above. I guess I’m happy that I can take on the world without much fear, after being abused in every way, since the day I was born. But, how does that compute? It’s ok that innocent children are abused, neglected, and unloved? That doesn’t make sense to me.

Is this God’s plan for us?

I know, there are religious, christian, God loving people out there that will be disgusted by this question, but really, is this what God intended for us? Lifetimes of abuse and feeling no love or compassion from anyone? I thought people were supposed to be kind to each other, and compassionate, empathetic? How are we supposed to live that way when there are fewer and fewer good people left? I’m a very empathetic, compassionate, and kind person. I understand that that’s what God wants, and I’m not worried about getting into heaven because I’ve earned my way in.

I just don’t understand the meaning of life…

Maybe I’m not meant to.

I've only recently (at 43 years old) realized what my life's purpose is. I want to help others by sharing my experiences and creating a space where people can come, to feel supported and safe. I've endured struggles since the day I was born, as many of us have, and it's therapeutic to write about my life. Also, to help others but also to learn and grow by understanding other victims and their experiences as well.

One thought on “Only the good die young

  1. It’s a fair question. Does God really care about you and what you are going through? God sees our pain and invites us to come to Him in relationship and in relationship with Him we receive His comfort. God not only sees our pain He can relate to it because He sent His only Son to die on the Cross for our sins. God allowed His only Son to die on the Cross as part of His plan to reconcile us back to Him. He wanted to bring, comfort, hope and healing to us. But to appreciate this plan, we have to understand the reason why suffering exist. All of us have disobeyed God due to Adam’s disobedience in the garden of Eden, the Bible calls this disobedience “sin.” and the penalty for sin is death. But Jesus died on the Cross and we can receive forgiveness and eternal life if we accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior and life for Him. God’s love is so great that He doesn’t want us to meet our deserved fate, Jesus paid the penalty on our behalf, even though He was perfect and without sin, this is the ultimate expression of God’s love.

    Right now, you may feel a bit beat up or perhaps offended that God views you as a sinner, I get that. When I say you I don’t mean that in the accusatory sense. I mean, you, me all of us. It’s easier to rest in the illusion that sources outside our control are the cause of the problems that we face. I’ve had to be honest with myself there were times I lost my temper and said things to hurt someone, I’ve held a grudge that caused me to withhold kindness, shamelessly I’ve took pleasure in sharing gossip. And, while those acts may seem small compared to other evil acts, anything that violates God’s Word is sin and worthy of punishment.

    Since I’ve invited Christ into my life, many things have changed. I haven’t been exempt from experiencing suffering but I understand that we live in a fallen world. I have a relationship with God and through the toughest days of my life, I have comfort for today and hope for the future. You have reason for hope. There is more to life than this world. Jesus promises eternal life to all who trust in Him. When you rest your hope on His unshakable promises, it will transform your life and your outlook on life. God will use your suffering for good (Romans 8:28). As you grow in the understanding of who He is, this promise will become precious to you.
