ever been mad at God?

In my opinion, a relationship that has any degree of depth needs to be able to work through conflict, tension, disappointment, misunderstandings, challenges, etc.  I sincerely believe that the deeper the relationship, the more we must be willing to work through such struggles & I don’t think that our relationship with God is any different.  I think that our relationship with God is as deep as we are willing to wrestle:  no wrestling, shallow depth; much wrestling, much depth.  My examples for this thinking are in Job & Jacob who strenuously wrestled with God, not without some impairment.

So with this in mind, when (not if) we get mad, disappointed, frustrated, misunderstand God, let’s not sweep these feelings & thoughts under the carpet.  Let’s maintain an open & honest dialogue with God because the depth with God is worth way more than the dialogue, conflict, etc 😀

  1. Oh wow! How good to know that it’s a part of the relationship with God to be ocassionally angry; not necessarily “angry”. I try to avoid it, but I am guilty as charged of having gone “there”. In spite of my flawed backsliding, my God is ALWAYS there for me. Believe me angry is a strong word; I would prefer “impatient with God’s schedule and plan for me”. I know He has it setup as it is best for me and I am forever grateful for His love and patience. Blessings.

    • thank you for sharing this! what a relief! i always felt that God would understand that, while sometimes i dont always like what He wants me to do or say, that i LOVE Him dearly! some would think that to say or feel so is blasphemous!

  2. Good observation and for me personally it is tough to turn my “self-godship” (probably not a scrabble word” back over to God. There are things I want to do or would like to have, but… I know when my kids would “want to” do something, but it just didn’t fit into the schedule for something better planned – it was difficult for them to understand and I didn’t have time to set down and explain all of it, but the anwer was still “no-for now” Ughhhh! I’m reminded of the example that when you were in the middle of taking a test in the classroom – the teacher was still there watching and waiting for you to get through the test. The teacher didn’t say anything but was there to administer the examination of your capability or sometimes lack thereof. Sometimes it feels the same with God – there waiting for us to finish to get onto the next step or the next level level. Hmmmm

  3. Hi there outstanding blog! Does running a blog such
    as this take a great deal of work? I have virtually no expertise in coding but I was
    hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I just had to ask.
    Many thanks!
