Questioning God

The presence of a chaplain helps patients with their concerns

Far from family support and experiencing devastating depression, Carmen had many questions. Yes, these questions were about her condition and her medication, but they also were questions about God. Why does God allow me to suffer so long? Why must I be so alone? Why do I feel God just doesn’t hear my prayers? At Exalta Health the medical team was able to provide help with her depression. And the chaplain provided Carmen with the comfort of someone to listen to the pain in her story, and to offer sustaining hope. Carmen left the clinic resonating with the words “He will not leave you or forsake you.”
