I guess I am quite justified in being so discouraged.
My situation must surely suggest that God is indifferent to my plight. Would God permit such trials and unhappiness to come upon someone whom He loves?

'When Satan comes to you, and tells you that because you are unhappy, perplexed, and troubled, you are not a child of God, do not become discouraged for one moment, but gird up the loins of your mind. Let your heart find peace in God. He has promised that if you come to Him, you will find rest to your soul; and if you have done this, rest assured that He will fulfill His word to you.' (TMK 245)
'It should not be difficult to remember that the Lord desires you to lay your troubles and perplexities at His feet, and leave them there.' (TM 519)
'In every emergency we should feel that the battle is His.' (PK 202)
'In the way that leads to the city of God there are no difficulties which those who trust in Him may not overcome. There are no dangers which they may not escape. There is not a sorrow, not a grievance, not a human weakness, for which He has not provided a remedy.' (MH 249)
'Not one that in penitence and faith has claimed His protection will Christ permit to pass under the enemy's power. The Saviour is by the side of His tempted and tried ones. With Him there can be no such thing as failure, loss, impossibility, or defeat, we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.' (DA490)
'Nothing is impossible with God. Nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied: No human relationship is too strained for God to bring about reconciliation and understanding: No habit so deep rooted that it cannot be overcome: No one is so weak that he cannot be strong: No one is so ill that he cannot be healed. No mind is so dull that it cannot be made brilliant. Whatever we need, if we trust God He will supply it.' (RH 10-07-65)
