Honest Anger

Honest Anger

Being honest with God is the first step toward resolving our anger.


It's a bit scary, but we have to admit the truth. At times, we get angry with God. The pink slip comes, even though we were told layoffs wouldn't happen. God tells us to move away from family and friends. We obey and everything falls apart. We grow up trusting God, but now he seems to have forgotten about us. Life isn't fair, and we feel it's God's fault.

Anger is an honest emotion, but dare we express it to God Almighty? Is it okay to be red-faced, spitting mad at God? What happens if we tell him how we really feel? These are some of the questions we'll address in this study.
