"God, why did you let this happen to me?"
The death of a spouse, the betrayal of a friend, and the disability of a child are often so painful that we want to blame God. We all have times of anger, disappointment, and frustration. But when we aim that anger at God, we end up feeling empty, frustrated, and lost.
Our anger can either destroy us with self-pity, or God can use it to make us joyful.
The key is to aim the anger in the right direction. To do this, we need to:
• Learn to be transparent before the Lord.
• Complain to the Lord in the way that Bible characters did.
• Turn despair Godward.
