My Chronic Anger

January 3, 2013 — 2 Comments

I realized today that I’m still angry at God for how my life is going. I have repented of this anger many times before. But I am realizing that this is something I need to daily surrender to God.

It seems ironic to me but I am angry that he hasn’t yet provided a way for me to be in full time vocational ministry. Others around me keep getting amazing opportunities and I’m stuck fixing air conditioners.

I believe that God is sovereign and good and thus is working everything for my greatest joy, but I’m having a hard time enjoying where I am now.  So again today I had to repent for holding that against him and not trusting his eternal wisdom.

Are you chronically angry at God for anything?

    I truly believe that as long as you keep placing your faith in The Lord, and sincerely living every moment of your life to the fullest, you will get the break you are looking for. If god didn’t have you in mind he wouldn’t have allowed you to have such a beautiful wife and 2 beautiful children. Keep praying and working hard and accept the fact that you are doing everything in your power to help your family flourish and your opportunity will be presented when you least expect it.

    • Thanks, Justin. That’s encouraging. I’m learning to trust God with his timing. He always gives us what we would have prayed for if we knew what he knows.
