This question is an emotional one. Information would only answer part of it.

The problem with my faith is that it's too weak. 

I don't fully submit to the Father's will --- that I live on the Earth serving Him until He takes me back.

I honestly wish I could skip all the pain of living here. All the loneliness and disappointment. 

I could be with Jesus forever and He's the true treasure. So what am I doing down here besides messing up, sinning, and wasting time getting scarred?

The truth is, I hate suffering. I deal with life and get up in the morning because I'm supposed to. But there's not true relish in it.

It's just like, " Is the Lord returning today?? If not... Why not go back to bed.

I feel ashamed to admit that because life is a gift and the Earth has good things in it for us to enjoy. 

But without what Adam and Eve had in the garden--- direct access to God--- it just all seems pointless.

We are with God right now. Paul said it well: "Pray constantly." (1 Thess 5:17)

However, to have peace, we have to obey the Lord's commandments. (Matt 4:17)
