EWTN Catholic Q&A
Tired of Trying
Question from Val on 04-15-2017:

I have gone through a lot more pain and problems than anyone I know. I have tried very hard to be obedient to Christ and trust that he will eventually assist me. No open doors. I am 53 and I am tired. I thought God intervenes and helps when one asks. Can anyone tell me why He doesn't love or care about me? My life is in such turmoil. It's sad and dark and such a struggle to believe He'll finally come around.

Dear Daisy,

Your thoughts of despair are ruining your soul. You have to pray and keep praying no matter what. The Devil wants to see you give up. Don't.
