This may be the most honest and transparent blog post I’ve ever written and I shared it at momheart.org today.
God Hurt My Feelings
When I was in charge of the dream, back before it was a reality, life was perfect.
I was minding my own business, living out my agenda and then…
God’s decision slammed into my day altering my reality and my feelings were very hurt.
I love Him, I trust His sovereignty but there are weak, fleeting moments when I am not sure I like Him.
He makes choices without consulting me. He does not even ask my opinion much less, it seems, take it into consideration. He hurts my feelings on a regular basis and I tell Him when He does. I sure take Him up on His words in 1 Peter 5:7 when He said, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” I just happen to believe that “all your care” includes hurt feelings and disappointments.
David, who was a man after God’s own heart, tells us in Psalms 42:3-4, “My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me.” David certainly told God when he was disappointed, in despair, discouraged and despondent.
I pour out my heart to God often. Oh, I have my times of praise and worship. I have scheduled sessions of thanksgiving and ways of expressing gratitude. But sometimes when I am just downright annoyed with Him, well, I tell Him that as well.
