Why Did God Take My Man

I met the most wonderful man. We were deeply in love. I lost him in an accident 4 weeks ago and cannot bare his absence. I still wake up every morning praying it's not true. Everyone tells me there is a reason why GOD took him; my question is, why did he come into my life to quickly leave me?

Would it have been better to have no memories than to have the ones you have? I lost my love on June 8th and keep trying to see why but one thing that I do no is that he is in a better place than we are and I will see him again, and most of all my life is better because of him no matter how long it was an so to have not known him at all would be worse than losing him so soon. So count your blessing's that you had his love at all. GOD BLESS YOU AND I'LL PRAY FOR YOUR PEACE AS WELL AS MINE.

God did not take your brother. The Bible says we are promised life until at least 70. God is a good God and the giver of only good things. The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I encourage you doing this hard time to find believers who will affirm the goodness and love of God to you. Read your Bible and shy away from those christians who do not understand the nature of God. Things will get better for you. The scriptures tells us this also. Joy9988

Everyone will encounter death in our life. God knows already when one will die. It is the will of God that our loved ones will die. We just have to accept it. Life goes on. They die ahead of us but we will die also on God's time.

Our consolation, 1 Corinthians 15:51-55, we have to die so we can have eternal life.

God bless us all.

Madison, I am deeply deeply sorry about your brother, honey! :( I miss my big brother too and I am glad he was a Christian and you will see him again, but I deeply hurt for those who lose their brothers--or anybody, but especially brothers. God be with you dear.

I can't answer for God, and your asking is a normal process of grief and healing. Your last comment was "to quickly leave me". Accepting God's timing takes time. Maybe it would help to thank the Lord for all that you learned, enjoyed, and healed from knowing this man. It might bring you comfort. I'm sorry for your loss. I lift you in prayer for the Lord to comfort you.

I am so sorry for your loss. I asked the same sort of questions when my brother died at the age of 40 a few months ago. The Holy Spirit told me that God's ways are not our ways, and that His plans for my family are for good and not evil. I comforted myself that my brother is in glory now, accompanied by our father who died when my brother was only 11. They are together again, and we will see them someday soon. I found Psalm 139 comforting.

May I say I am sorry for your loss.

1st_cliff has given the appropriate answer to the question. Death is a part of life. Neither God nor Satan need be blamed when someone dies. Accidents/illness/natural death etc happen. Someday, everyone on these blogs will have their appointment with death should the Lord tarry.

This information may not take the sting away but a part of your healing will be to stop blaming God for what happened.

I had the same question when I lost my mother at the age of 13. I got my answer when I settled down enough to ask in fairness. The Lord made it clear to me that she belonged to Him as all the rest of us do. "It is appointed unto man once to die...." we will all meet that appointment and never know when until the very moment. Just thank God for the wonderful times you had.

Liz; My deepest condolences to you, but be assured God did not TAKE your man! An accident can happen to any one of us at any given moment. None of us has a charmed life!

In the book of Job we see God permitted that everything was taken away from Job...How did Job responded to this? I recommend reading the book of Job and how He responded and see the outcome of his circumstances..I pray that your respond to God and your outcome be more a blessing.

I am sooo sorry!! I've sometimes wondered why myself; afraid I don't have an answer for that, but I do know this: GOD LOVES YOU and He loves your dear one too. Like the Word says (not sure exactly where but in James I think), "Draw nigh unto God and He will draw nigh unto you."; He will, my dear.
---Mary on 3/25/07


Liz, I don't believe God took that man. Satan is the god of this world and will do everything in his power to get believers to leave God. Don't let him do that to you. This is a time when you need to get as close to God as you can. He will bring you comfort, peace and you will have joy again. I know it's hard now, but if you stick with God it will get better. He promises that.

Jesus said, " blessed are those who mourn; God will comfort them"

There is one thing you can be sure of about this is that God did not take him. Jesus said that the thief, satan, comes to kill, steal, and destroy.(John 10:10)

Satan goes to and fro like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The man may have passed away, but in Christ he shall live.

He is seated in paradise right now.
---Rickey on 3/25/07


Although God has him if he was born again I wouldn't go so far as to say God was the cause of the accident. I attribute these kind of horrible things to the devil. This kind of thing is not on the list of blessings from God. We need to quit accepting the devil's evil deeds as works of God. It makes more sense to realize the devil did this, not God.

Liz, I am so sorry for your loss and I will be praying for you. Like Jack I believe that only the Father can answer your question and I am sure He probably has or will. When you are hurting it is hard to hear but just know He will never leave nor forsake you. HIS PROMISE Rom.8:28 There is a song by Natalie Grant called Held, it helped during my loss. Keep me posted, please

You have my sympathy, and I do not know why your friend died. I've also lost loved ones. My sister (who was more my friend than my sister) and my oldest son and my dad...anyways, what keeps me going is knowing we will one day see them again.

If he was a Christian, he was God's man.

If he was a Christian, he may have come into your life as a witness that Jesus Christ still has a few good men.

If he was a Christian, God wanted him to come Home.

God didn't take your man, the devil did. the bible says the thief comes to steal, kill & destroy but Jesus has come to give us abundant life. I lost my wife, but I don't blame God I blame the devil who took her
---Richard on 3/25/07


Physical death is but a hint of spiritual reality. (only his body died)

Regardless of his eternal destination his life is not over, he has entered into the longest part of life ahead of you and will surely greet you again.

God has surely not taken him, because he's living inside of your heart. Maybe God has taken him to help you to look into eternity with greater Joy and Peace; and while that makes no sense to us singularly, who said God would only have one reason to take him?
---Pharisee on 3/25/07


There is a reason for everything and sometimes we're not meant to know the reasonings. There is an old saying if I remember right, It is better to love and to have loss than not have loved at all. Everyone is apointed to die, we don't know when our time on earth is over. but it pays to be ready and know beyond of a shadow of a doubt that your heart is right with God.

Have you tried asking God directly yourself?

You're just as capable of hearing the answer from Him directly as the rest of us.
