I feel like I know a lot of Christians who act really fake. Like they know the way they’re supposed to act, but they don’t ever show their true thoughts and feelings because maybe it’s somehow no right. Here’s an example: My father found out today that he didn’t get a job that sounded perfect for him, and even the company thought he was a great fit. But when he came home he was all ” It’s ok because it’s Gods plan,” which I know is the correct response. But I am good at reading emotions, and it’s plain as day that he is VERY upset. But it seems like he thinks that it’s wrong to express anger, sadness, disappointment, etc. because he thinks it’s dishonoring to God somehow. I guess I want to know if it’s okay to process emotions and feelings, or if we’re supposed to just accept something as part of Gods plan.

It’s always okay to process emotions and feelings. It doesn’t even contradict knowing it’s God’s plan. You can accept that something has happened/had to happen without being thrilled it happened. Besides that, your emotions are automatic, and not hand-chosen, and thus, they’re not always logically things that make sense.
