“Dear Lord, I must con­fess that I am an­gry with You. Six months ago, our house burned down in a freak ac­ci­dent. My fam­ily was saved, but all our pos­ses­sions were lost. I look around and see oth­ers who have not been nearly as de­voted as I have been and who are thriv­ing. It just feels so un­fair. I miss the close­ness I used to feel to You in prayer, but I am too an­gry to for­give.”

Wis­dom of the Word

For I con­sider that the suf­fer­ings of this present time are not worth com­par­ing with the glory that is to be re­vealed to us. —Paul in a let­ter to the Ro­mans, 8:18

We un­der­stand and yet…

We can go through tri­als so great, we can’t help but feel an­gry. This is es­pe­cially true when we see those not as faith­ful not hav­ing to strug­gle so much. What can help?
