My Anger

Postby Will » Sat Nov 28, 2015 4:45 pm

Over the last couple of months I have been angry at God over not getting what I want in life and even to the point that I have been saying that I hate him. What can I do about this situation that has been happening frequently?

I would highly suggest taking a big step back and asking yourself whether or not your view of God is in line with the Bible. Also talk to someone like a pastor or Bible teacher. Praying!

Hey Will, I think the first step is to acknowledge this fact, as you have done - I believe our God is big enough to take our emotions and rage, so this is a good start.

When I get angry about life, I sit down and think about all the things I have in life, as well as all the important memories / events I have experienced. I then think about whether my anger is justified in light of what my life has been like up to this point.

I am not saying your anger is unjustified, or that it is wrong to be disappointed / upset about things in life, but I find that when I spend time reflecting on how my life has turned out so far, I am reminded of the times that people have been gracious to me, that I have received good things that I did not really deserve, etc.

Everyone's life is different, so you would probably have completely different experiences to me - but this is something I do, and I've found it helps, so I thought to suggest it.

It is also a good idea to talk over the issues with a trusted friend - I wish you all the best.

I admit, I can understand this feeling. There have been times when I've been angry at God for things that've happened (or not happened). But in the end, I remember that no matter what happens, He has things already figured out. Bad things might happen that make me upset, but I don't see the full picture like He does. I think the best thing you can do is present your feelings to God and tell Him that you know that no matter what, He knows best, but you're having a hard time seeing why things are working out this way (that's exactly what I did). Then tell Him "it's all in Your hands, and please help me remember that." I can already tell you a few stories of how I didn't get what I wanted initially, but in the end, I saw it worked out for the better - I'm now glad that He protected me from what He did!

I'll be praying for you, and if you do have a home church and/or Christian friends, this is something that'd be good to try talking through with them. I can't say much else without knowing exactly what it is that you want but aren't getting, but I still wish the best to you.
