Why Isn’t God Delivering Me More Quickly?

October 14, 2013

“I have battled bulimia for seven years now. It has been a very difficult battle, with many ups and downs. Throughout it all I’ve tried to have hope that God would deliver me from this, but he hasn’t. The longer this goes on, the more I feel like I’m losing every bit of hope I have. To make matters worse, I recently met someone who used to be bulimic and was somehow delivered overnight from it. I mean, she totally doesn’t struggle anymore! So why did God deliver her, but not me? Is she a better person than me? Is he just trying to teach me some sort of lesson? If so, I just don’t understand. I want to be free. I want to be delivered. Why isn’t this happening for me?”
