i’m gonna let this post sit here a couple days, cause i believe it should.
have you ever blamed God? have you ever been angry at Him?
i’m sure the answer is, yes. i think our emotions are natural and i believe God appreciates an honest heart. i also believe that sometimes our emotions are misguided.
i read this tonight and it pierced me to the core!

“Most of us blame our circumstances when things aren’t going well just like we blame the ref when a game isn’t going well. We look for some external scapegoat. But maybe our problem isn’t our circumstances. Maybe our problem is our perspective.
…God has a three-hundred-and-sixty degree perspective on everything. He considers every contingency. He sees all the way around everything-every issue, every person, every experience, every problem. Most of us see a very narrow slice of reality. The best and brightest among us might have a one-degree angle of vision. It’s like we’re looking through a peephole. So why do we assume that what we pray for is always what’s best for us? If we could see what God sees, we would pray very different prayers.”
just let that soak in for awhile.
