Your story relays an inspiring and comforting message; invoking God to help overcome the trials and tribulations we all encounter on this journey we call "life".
I liked how you effectively expressed anguish and clearly needed answers. As I was reading this piece, it brought to mind a few instances when I was emotionally wrecked and desperate for relief.
The lines spoken by the man with the dog were well chosen. I also found it creative that his advice came to you in what I assume was an inspiring dream. However, I did find a few punctuation errors. The exclamation point after overwhelmed seems a bit much since you had already used one after the first sentence. You had already established that you were distraught. You might want to consider deleting the other exclamation points.
A comma should be placed within guts and wrenching. Also, between sofa and sobbing. Lastly, there are a lot of one sentence paragraphs. Try combining a few sentences.
I found your writing to be inspiring and creative. Good work.
