Life Lesson #8:
It's okay to get angry with God. He can take it.
I don't have much to say about this one. I've had a few moments where I have been upset with God because I wasn't getting my way or I felt like he wasn't helping me. But months later (in most cases) I have learned that it is because He has a plan for me and I can't control the lessons he is throwing at me.
The key thing here: I wasn't getting my way. I had to stop doing that and thinking like that. I am not in control of my life. And guess what, when I stop trying to control my life and just let God guide me, great things happen.
You need examples? Here you go, here is mine:
After graduating last May with my MSW degree, I was having a hard time finding a job. Seriously, I was applying for at least 20-30 jobs a week. No interviews. Nothing. I spent 4.5 months after graduation (that doesn't include the months before graduation) applying for jobs and searching for something. When I threw my hands up in the air and asked God for guidance--I landed a job. It wasn't in my field and I was just nannying, but I got a job.
Have you ever been angry with God? What was your experience? Did you still feel God present in your life? What about if/when you let God guide you?
