    My husband passed away this week and I'm beginning to question my faith and belief. I am a Christian-Wiccan, and when he was en route to the ER I prayed and prayed, only to have him taken from me. I am angry with God and Goddess for taking my soulmate and best friend away from me. I have very religious parents and when they were with me to help me through everything g my father kept mentioning that my husband had a talk with God in his last moments and is in heaven and if I don't set myself straight I might not see him again and that thought upsets me to the point I'm questioning everything I've believed in. Any advice would be greatly appreciated because I am drowning here.

    There may be some delay before you start to get replies to this, but you will know it is being read. Hang in there.

    My own advice may be to question why your father needs to exploit your vulnerability at such a sensitive time? How on earth does he know, and could he not have left it until you are stronger?

    God responds to sincere seeking any time, any place, any religion, imo. Heaven is not reserved for fundamentists of any particular faith. Again just my own thoughts.

    It's alright to be angry. God understands. You have all our sympathy and support here. There will be an answer, let it be ...

    Firstly sorry for the loss, these are difficult times to face and I pray in my heart that you find your solace.

    The close connection with your husband that you see was a friend and a soul mate is very precious, and also unbreakable.

    Rest assured you will see your husband again, if you can find peace with God, that would greatly help. Prayer at these times can give us peace and wisdom to our souls (I lost my mother a few weeks ago, very unexpected)

    As a Baha'i we have a very positive look on the passing of loved ones, family and friends. The sadness is something we must face, it is in the knowledge that God knows what is best for each soul, as such there was a wisdom in this being your husbands chosen time to enter the world of eternal lights.

    If you want a chat, or some information that I can offer on life after death, please I am happy to chat or to provide the information.

    I will look in each day, but I am in Australia?

    Regards Tony

    My condolences, @Saraen Naomi.

    If you like, tell us what your husband's views were. Did you both share the Christian-Wiccan beliefs? What did he think about the next world?

    When someone we treasure becomes a memory, our memories become a treasure.

    Big hugz...

    I hated when folks would say G!d acts in mysterious ways ... anytime things didn't match our prayers. But now I realize there is always more going on than I see or understand. And that release from this life at times is the healing we all need.

    Hebrews 11:1 faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
