Finding Freedom from Anger and Disappointment
Are you angry at God?
This question may surprise you. Perhaps, as a good Christian, you think this question is scandalous because we should never feel angry or disappointed with God.
But what if I tell you that this is not true, and it is even possible not just to feel angry from time to time but to harbor deeply seated anger and disappointment? We may not even be aware of this, having this monster in a dark room in our hearts.
For years in which I struggled with my unfulfilled desire to become a mother, I was not aware I was hiding this monster.
But God is faithful, and He brings the monsters into the light at the proper time, so He can free us of everything that hinders our fellowship with Him.
Our Hearts are God’s Highest Concern
For me, this moment came nearly at the pick of my struggle with infertility, marital problems, and anxiety disorder. This was such an intensive time in my life during which I was clinging closer to the Lord through prayer and periods of fasting.
I wanted so much to experience a miracle in my life and see God’s power and glory in giving me a child, although all the odds were against it. Instead, He led me to a greater measure of freedom in Christ and spiritual maturity.
My heart was His highest concern. Our relationship and bonding were His priority.
