WHAT DO WE LOOK LIKE IF WE -- “TRY”-- TO BE ANGRY AT GOD?


Most of us, persons in this beautiful world are now fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers---possibly or not---the greater part of us have an important role to play in society as an exemplary figure in each other’s life .

SO: Let us search our hearts…when incidents in our life can touch our sensitivity; they may stealthily imbalance our faith and life ; thus inciting our full annoyance. Our ego will jump out and protest!

“NO.NO. Oh Lord…Why should this be my fate and my dire circumstances?” we may say with uncontrolled bitterness.

Now, where do we stand, especially as when we use The Lord’s Prayer in our everyday link with God our true Father. Why ? because we find this prayer gift to be the best pacifier in times of pulling our brakes to stop an approaching feeling of dissatisfaction that may trigger a temper and disfigure our expectations from our Creator.

“Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” appears as the key motivator to most of those to whom this lovely prayer shines as the sturdiest crutch in life.

So when we promise Jesus to follow Him it is intended to be honestly and honorably angry at God obediently indeed “for better or for worse…till death do us part.”This includes embracing God’s will with open arms indeed-- no matter how difficult God’s sentence appears. How then do we strive to avoid anger at God? Certainly none of us wish to appear as a fool. Especially if His plan in our life is receiving a sudden order of
separation from a loved one in our family through death. We become so desperate knowing it was never expected or anticipated!

We start to lament and plead. "OH LORD HELP US! PLEASE SHOW US WHAT TO
DO AT THIS HARD TIME !"

My friend MaryAnn Morrison, a missionary from Scotland, was barely 28 years of age, her husband was 29, and Fiona her daughter was 4 years old. One September morning, her husband went out fishing with his brother….and they never came back. Their boat over-turned in the storm, and they were both drowned.

Let us feel the emotions of bereaved MaryAnn, as she sadly recounts in her own true words, “During the Funeral Service , I heard the sweet voice of my heavenly Father speaking deep in my heart from Psalm 118:24: ‘This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it’.”

MaryAnn resumed witnessing of the love of our Lord Jesus, “Yet, knowing it was very hard for me to rejoice, His sweet voice continued whispering in my heart from John 14:18, ‘I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you’ ”

The Bible has much to enlighten us about God’s protection and concern. In Job’s unequal life disaster, God reassured him perfectly in Ch. 11:18 , “And thou shalt be

secure, because there is hope; yea, thou shalt dig about thee, and thou shalt take thy rest in safety.

May the Lord help us to accept all His decisions from His own hands with dignity .

Amen.

This was well written and profoundly sad...Sorry about the young man. But, the Lord comforts us and walks with us through all of our trials. There are no answers for things "that do not make sense to us." God knows the reasons why.

I pray that young lady has healed. God Bless~

Much to ponder in this! Maryann's story touched my heart. Thanks for sharing! God bless!

You made some interesting points in this piece. God is there to support us as we follow the road He laid out before us.

Instead of using all caps, use your words or descriptions to show the reader the person is shouting for example you could say something like Shaking my fist in the air, I shouted at God. It will help paint a picture for the reader.

I liked the verses you chose. In everything we are to give thanks. It's not always easy to do, but God never promised to make it easy just to be with us.

This entry truly pauses you and forces you to think and meditate about the deeper and more pressing issues of life. For that ... I thank you!
