When we feel we have been left without comfort and support feelings of abandonment can take over. Abandonment can take on many forms. Individuals who have suffered with spousal infidelity, abuse, depression, or suicide may have very strong feelings of abandonment based on their past experiences. Other may feel abandoned simply because of the death, asking questions such as, “How could you leave me?” Still others feel abandoned by God. Coping with feelings of abandonment will prevent stronger feelings of anger and depression from taking root.

“When we are racked or harrowed up or torment by guilt or burdened with grief, He can heal us… We can experience the Peace of God which passes all understanding.” “The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of transformation… He invites us to come unto Him and be transformed.” “All can discover, embrace and walk in the true faith of their Father, which faith will make them whole.”
