Maybe, if treated properly, she will blossom.

So i have learned. but apparently if i post bad news it is just a pity party.

You are not doing okay. The good news is, that can change.

Change may not be easy but that does not mean it is impossible.

For many it is a life long process. We start where we are.

yep knowing God can make the change but it not happening is sometimes worse. would be easier to thinkl nothign can be done . but knowing it can be done and not knowing why it isnt done is very depressing

yes read them all.. i dont recall any of them why you ask
The book of Habakkuk has some of the answers you seek. Habakkuk went from questioning and complaining to listening and learning to praying and worshipping

Figure out what he learned that led to the transition

Habakkuk's situation didn't get better. It actually got worse. So what did he learn that allowed him to worship instead of complaining?

sorry i jsut read it again, what did he learn ?
Chapter 2:4. The just shall live by faith. We are to trust God even when we don't understand. The circumstances of our lives were never meant to satisfy us but it our relationship with God. That's what Psalm 23:1 teaches. There is a relationship that is so satisfying in God that we do not want. And our circumstances no longer matter. That's the essence of the song Give Me Jesus. It's not that as our relationship with God grows He won't more fully reveal Himself and His ways. But it should be enough that we trust God and delight in Him in whatever estate we find ourselves.
I'm not suggesting this is an easy lesson to learn or that it doesn't challenge our current but often wrong ideas both of who God truly is and what He's really up to...but I am saying the struggle to know God as He actually is is worth every effort expended.
