I had a whole stack of things to pick from to write about tonight, but then getting the little ones to bed proved to be one of those frustratingly long experiences, and those plans went out the proverbial window.
Instead, what spoke to me tonight was this post from Heidi Hess-Saxton's blog: You are Mine: The Love Project - Day 13
Heidi writes: Before we can do anything, we must first be. In particular, we must be secure in our identity as a child of God.
But what do you do when the circumstances of your life have conspired against you, and you feel as far from God as you could possibly be?
What do you do when … you feel angry with God? What then?
First, you tell him how you feel. If you don’t, the distance increases.
Next, you acknowledge the mystery of suffering: God has not caused your pain — rather, he identifies with it.
Then, you wait with expectation.
“When we are angry with God, he comes to us not in great and mighty ways — that would be too scary. Instead, he comes to us in the still, small voice. In small ways.”
