Why is God doing this to me and not showing the reason?

Hello everyone, I would like to share something that has tortured me for years. And forgive me for not going into too much details, I just want to know why this suffering won’t end and why it is even like this. So basically the situation is, I fell in deep love with someone I will never be able to meet (as of now at least, I can’t predict the future)
Please don’t ask any questions, I have way too many questions of my own. And as you can guess, struggles like this can lead to severe depression and mental illness.
I just want to know why God has put that special someone in my life, but yet makes it impossible to go see them. I hope no one ever goes through this torture.
I have wondered and wondered, is it because something better is waiting? Or is it because God thinks I’m not ready yet? I know no one really knows God’s plan and intentions, but I’m human, and I need an answer. I need reasons. Explanations. I can’t keep going on without knowing WHY. I honestly do believe that God has a plan for everyone that is for the ultimate good, because I’ve experienced it many times. But for severe issues like this, I can’t just be kept in the unknown. But where do I go find the answer at all? I just can’t get over it.
I have prayed and asked for answers, but it never came. I’m still stuck deep in this pain.
This has came to a point where I question the existence of God. This makes me question everything. It makes me feel like my life is a lie. It’s horrible. Because all my life I’ve seen the wonderful works of God, I’ve seen miracles. And I do believe these very much. But how come this one doesn’t come with a solution? Why does this has to happen? I just wanna live a normal life like everyone. Be with the one I love. But God has made it impossible. If so, what’s the point of putting this special person in my life? Just to have fun and torture me? I feel such a deep connection to this person, like I never ever had before. And yet I can’t progress with them, and I do seriously ask God, how will he give back all these wasted precious years.
maybe one of you can be the messenger of God and tell me something. Because I need it. I need the affirmations, I need a reason for me to keep having faith and not crash. Because I’ve had it.
I just wanna drive over and go visit and see them, but why is God stopping me?
I am very satisfied and grateful with everything else about the life God has gave me.
I cannot go on and live my life with what feels like my heart is been fried on a pan everyday. Just set me free. I don’t even know if I can push through until the day where everything finally magically works out and makes sense. I’m a human, I need closure and answers. This is someone that I felt a deep deep connection with, so much effort and feelings has been put in, and I can’t even get the chance to see and meet and get to know what she is like? How she really are? Why would god do this to me? Even though my mother does not approve of her, and maybe if we ever really got together it will be a completely disaster, but that’s just all pointless assumptions.
And you know what’s even more sad, it’s that even if god finally decides to give me an answer, I’m still not gonna get over it because what can he do about all those times that we could’ve spent being together? I don’t understand why god is doing this, my life is going very well, but he has to torture me endless with this. I have never felt so much despair and pain. And why is he not talking back to me? Please everybody. I need help. I don’t want to live another second feeing like this. It’s ripping my heart out.
and what’s even more amazing is that this woman is also a Christian. So why would god put someone like her in my life and then have things turn out this way?

I feel like I want to cry my eyes out but I can’t even do that.

My suggestion would be put Jesus Christ FIRST, it would seem you are placing this other person first and foremost in your life. The Lord never promised us we wouldn't have pain in our lives and questions and pains/hurts BUT he did promise He would never leave nor forsake us EVER. It says in the Bible Seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God and then everything else will basically fall where it should. That doesn't always mean the way we would like either. Get your strength from Jesus. It would seem that the enemy is attacking your mind let this issue/situation go surrender ALL to Jesus. It is His peace that surpasses all understanding not man's peace or the world's peace but Jesus' peace. You seem to be rocking to and fro like a ship on an uneasy ocean. Blessings sister.

Luke 14:25-27 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters -- yes, even his own life -- he cannot be my disciple. Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundations and is not able to finnish it, everyone who ses it will ridicule him, saying ' this fellow began to build and was unable to finnish.' Believer, there is a cost to following Jesus, we must ask ourselves if we wish to pay that cost. I pray God gives you the Grace to do so.

Greetings,

may i echo the responses you have had thus far?
And may i add, we need to ask ourselves who or what comes first in our lives?

All too quickly we can answer that the Lord does but sometimes it may be another person or another something we don't have or can't have or similar, which, if we are honest, which we sometimes don't like to admit to any lack of, we might see that in fact it is not so much the other person or something that we love more but it is indeed ourselves as it is all about what I want, what I need, what I am after, because that someone or something will give ME all I long for or want or need and IF ONLY I could have it, I would be happy AND if only I could get back all those wasted years of wanting or yearning or wishing things were how I see it would be better......
can you see how we can put ourselves first?

I can tell you this, IF you were ever to be with this person [and that goes for all - if we do get what WE want because that is how we reason it all out for OUR happiness and contentment], yes, if you do ever get to be with this person, you would more than likely be soon wanting something else all your way , the way you want it and you would not be at all happy, because you are seeking first your own fulfillment, thinking that what you want will give you the peace you think it will bring. Relationships don't work like that. As Christians, as Believers, we must put seeking the Lord and His righteousness first.

What many of us forget all too quickly is that we have something that nothing in this world and nobody in this world can give... forgiveness from God through His Son. We have this not because we deserve it but because He loves us.

The Bible tells us that all things were made by Him and for Him and all things consist and have their being in and through Him, Jesus Christ. None of it is available to us outside of His mercy and grace, His lovingkindness. It is because of and through this merciful lovingkindness that we have forgiveness.
Do we spend much time considering the forgiveness we have received and at what cost it was given? And then if so, why do we so quickly want more?

Two things i shall finish with,
The Lord wants us and is not willing that we perish. He allows things to be before us that we may choose between them and Him, and in doing so we will find that we must lose things and be content with Him alone. [if, in your example, you were able to be with this person and then someone or something else came along and got between you, would you be content to let that person go and lose them? AND if someone or something came along that 'offered' you a better deal than what you have with this person, what would you choose? To be content with who you have or to grab the new thing or person and forsake the love of your life? - Who is the love of your life? ]
There is also in the Bible a direction to take every thought captive. There is good reason for this.
Way back in the beginning, the Serpent, The Devil, the Liar, conned Eve. That same adversary, the liar, continues to this day to attempt to distort peoples thinking and to steal and destroy their peace. Our Peace is Christ Jesus and therefore we must take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, that we do not shipwreck our faith by seeking contentment and peace from any other thing or person as tasty and nice looking as it might appear at the moment. Do not be fooled.

So, does Jesus give you the yearning and desire and wants that are eating you up? Is it Jesus Who puts ideas of a better life or a better plan into your head and or your heart? IF SO, trust Him quietly and continue seeking Him and His righteousness, being kind as your Father in Heaven is kind, forgiving and blessing even our enemies.
If it is not from Jesus, you will know because you will have no peace in your thoughts and therefore overflowing into your life and relationship with others around you, no matter what you profess, until you resist the devil and praise the Lord, giving thanks to Him in all things, for this is the will of God in Christ concerning you.


Bless you ....><>

All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:3

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: 14In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
for by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence.
For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.


And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight: if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
Colossians 1:10-23

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
2Corinthians 10:5

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1Thessalonians 5:18

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

AND if someone or something came along that 'offered' you a better deal than what you have with this person, what would you choose? To be content with who you have or to grab the new thing or person and forsake the love of your life? - Who is the love of your life? ]
There is also in the Bible a direction to take every thought captive. There is good reason for this.
Way back in the beginning, the Serpent, The Devil, the Liar, conned Eve. That same adversary, the liar, continues to this day to attempt to distort peoples thinking and to steal and destroy their peace. Our Peace is Christ Jesus and therefore we must take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, that we do not shipwreck our faith by seeking contentment and peace from any other thing or person as tasty and nice looking as it might appear at the moment. Do not be fooled.

So, does Jesus give you the yearning and desire and wants that are eating you up? Is it Jesus Who puts ideas of a better life or a better plan into your head and or your heart? IF SO, trust Him quietly and continue seeking Him and His righteousness, being kind as your Father in Heaven is kind, forgiving and blessing even our enemies.
If it is not from Jesus, you will know because you will have no peace in your thoughts and therefore overflowing into your life and relationship with others around you, no matter what you profess, until you resist the devil and praise the Lord, giving thanks to Him in all things, for this is the will of God in Christ concerning you.


Bless you ....><>

All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:3

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: 14In Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
for by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church: Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence.
For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.


And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in His sight: if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;
Colossians 1:10-23

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
2Corinthians 10:5

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1Thessalonians 5:18

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7
