    TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Do You Ever Get Angry With God?

    There will be a lot of broken hearts this Christmas. Unfortunately, people lose loved ones every day, but last week, 26 families in the town of Newtown, CT lost a family member as the result of a heinous crime. And what makes it all worse–if it could even be worse–is that 20 of those who lost their lives were young children.

    Usually when a terrible tragedy occurs, many of those who are suffering feel angry and ask, “Why?” Some Christians even direct the question and anger toward God. “Why would God allow such a thing to happen?” “Why would God do this to me?”

    I don’t know why bad things happen. And I don’t know how much of what happens is part of God’s plan or man’s free will, but I do know this. Our lives will be challenged in many ways, and some people will experience more injustices than others. And there will be times when it feels as if God has forsaken us. But He hasn’t and He never will.

    God is bigger than all of this. And the feeling of loss and hurt that we experience on our earthy world doesn’t exist in the Kingdom of Heaven. The tears of sorrow that are shed on earth are replaced by tears of joy in heaven. Because when a loved one loses their physical life, it leaves a hole in our hearts. But for God, He’s called His angel home.

    Ladies, pray for the brokenhearted, that God may ease their pain. May He offer them comfort in the knowledge that their loved ones are now with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven, and that they are happy and safe and so loved.

    Have you ever been angry with God? Have you ever felt as if He has forsaken you?

    1. I’ve never been angry at God before (I’m too afraid to be mad at God). But I do ask Him some questions at times. I might ask out of couriosity “Why God?” Like this weekend, I asked Him why did this happen? HOwever, instead of getting mad at God, I just trusted Him and prayed for the people affected by this tragedy and that His love will show in the midst of this. I also have to remember that we are in the “last days” as the Bible has prophesied. yet, despite of all of this, I cant give up on God and get mad at Him. I mean, He has always been so patient towards me despite of what I’ve done and loved me during my ups and downs…so I can’t get mad at Him. Yes, there a times I wonder if He is even there, but there is this song by Barlowgirl that keeps me believing. “Never Alone” Whenever I feel alone, I might hum that song or I will start saying some Bible vereses that reaffirms my faith. (Ps. 23) and I will just ask God to give me strength. Another song that keeps me is “He’s Able” by Deitrick Haddon. The part that gets me is “…don’t give up on God, because He won’t give up on you. He’s Able!”

    2. This was beautifully written! Thank you! This tragedy has made me think a lot, and recently I’ve decided that I want some good to come from this terrible thing. So, in honor of the beautiful people who died on Friday in the tragedy, I’m going to perform 26 acts of kindness, one for each victim.

    3. God dosen’t let us go through bad times just so He can walk out on us. He is not that kind of God.

      (Matthew 28:20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS,EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD.

      Our Father,please hold up the families and loved ones of the victims of the shootings. Let them know that their loved ones are safe in heavan with you. Let them know that you can bring SO MUCH JOY even out of the most TERRIBLE situations. Hold up the state of Connecticut as a whole. Let EVERYONE know that you have it ALL IN YOUR HANDS and that we,Project Inspired and so many others are supporting and praying for them. Also let help them to remember that prayer is the answer to ALL THINGS. In your precious name,amen.

    4. I know that even though rough times may happen, that God is always with you. He never leaves us or forsakes us. Like you said, it’s part of His plan. We may not understand it but we can trust Him through it, to understand that this is a time to grow closer to Him, to realize that He’s the only one we can lean on.

    5. It’s perfectly natural to be mad at God – people in the Bible often were mad at Him, too (Shaking their fists at Him, tearing out their hair, etc). However, what’s important is that we still believe in God and His purpose – and that we know He still loves us and will “bind up the brokenhearted”.

    6. Well said! I think that on the inside everyone has the strength to get through whatever life throws at them. Some people just think they will be thought of as weak if they show strength for whatever reason. But these words here are some of the truest I have ever heard :).

    7. Going through a lot lately, and I find myself asking god that a lot. I’ve believed in him my whole life but this past month has been a lot and seeing that others do it too is very encouraging thank you (:

    8. That was really well written and i loved it! this is very true, how so many times we blame God and really, He’s not to blame! He can fix anything thats broken and give it new life, and everything fits into His plan!!!

    9. I feel so bad for those people :'( I don’t understand evil all I know is its Satans work not Gods.I understand why some will get angry at God when they are upset even though its wrong.I had recently relapsed into anorexia after being free for a whole year.I was angry at God for bringing this back and had gotton into Satanic worship of a enity named Anamadim.Then I just couldn’t take it anymore I cried because I missed God.I missed Christ so much it hurt just as bad as if a loved one dyed.So with the help of my wonderful husband and my beautiful baby(Im a teen mom) I turned my self around.I never want to leave God again 🙂 Amen
