How could God allow this to happen to me? I’m angry with him, but I don’t know if I’m “supposed” to be angry!
Is it ok to be angry with God? If we are angry, should we hold it inside, or voice our feelings outright?
Jones writes that we should not take a “grin and bear it” approach to our anger, nor should we rashly vent our emotions to God. Instead, we need to humbly bring him our struggles, doubts, and questions. We must learn to be transparent in God’s presence, think biblically, and act obediently.
