After I left my career, I moved from Marion, Illinois to St Louis and became a courier. A year later, on my way home one night, I was yelling at the Lord. "Why is this happening to me? Do you love me? I didn't move here to drive around this town like a chicken with its head cut off."
He answered a short time later when a tornado blew off a roof of an apartment building nearby my home. I felt the Lord telling me, "Ken, that could have been your apartment."
The Lord yelled at me, but he also showed that he loved me. He wants us to grow in our faith which is why he disciplines us out of his love for us. As a result, I am living my life for him.
The Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as his child. (Hebrews 12:6 NCV)
Dear Lord, We know you yell at us for our very own good. Help us to remember that you're doing it to change us. Thank you for dying on the cross so that we can be forgiven. In Jesus name, Amen.
