When we are challenged by the ups and downs of life it is easy to become a doubting Thomas. It can become so easy to question the existence of god or the wisdom of his ways. We can simply become disillusioned by his seeming absence. However, try to open your hearts even when you feel lost and alone to the possibility of God holding out his hand to you. Reach out to God in your pain and you might just find that he reaches back
