    I am saying this out of pure hurt and love.
    I'm at a point in my life that I look at life in the most negative light.
    I thought churches and these non profit organizations supposed to help, but they are the worse.
    I thought we were supposed to go to God with our needs and problems, but mines keep piling up.
    I tried praying, that just a little help, but the situation and circumstances is still there.

    I am going to leave here for now and continue with another thread

    Seems like you've gained some kind of understanding about churches and non profit organizations. That's something at least huh?

    I need more understanding too - I think we all do. Don't know what the situations and circumstances are, but I do believe the understanding of the actions you should take can be found within you. Islam teaches us that Allah will "place no burden on us stronger than we can bear". Continue with prayer, I would say, but also contemplation - then get into worldly, outward action - seek out someone with some expertise in dealing with your particular type of situation. Know thay you've got what it takes to endure and find & do what is needed.

    What is the main problem? Can you identify the one main big thing that needs sorting out?

    DESIDERATA often works for me:

    Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

    Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

    "And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

    That is true. Easy to have solutions for another person's problems.

    Desiderata is good

    Love yourself and the circumstances that surround you. Accept and Embrace life, detachment allows us to view life as a third party onlooker without getting caught up in the drama of life unless we choose to.

    Always be honest and truthful with yourself. Goodness propitiates good and positive responses. What ever happens in life is as it should be. Life and time are similar in that they are in constant motion and never repeats itself. What ever place or circumstances we find ourselves in, don't worry, be patient and embrace the change.
