Mad at God

January 4, 2013 Leave a comment

I had a great conversation with some fantastic people at work today.

We are usually so busy that we don’t discuss deep issues, but today was different.

It is frustrating, when going through difficult times, to have people tell us that tragedy can bring about a greater good. It is difficult to have people tell us that God won’t give us more than we can bear.

We agreed that these messages tick us off when we’re facing really hard, sad, challenging, grossly unfair times.

It’s better to be ticked off at God than to pretend we know something better is just beyond the horizon.

Because sometimes this just isn’t true. Sometimes life is unfair and terrible things happen that defy explanation or justification.
