Read (from the New Living Translation)

Romans 8:35-39

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I’m so very sorry for your loss but what an amazing testimony! You helped me realize that not only have I had misplaced anger about a horrible situation in my life (I have been angry at God) but that He is the one I need to ask to help me overcome this and then I absolutely need to ask Him for forgiveness. Thank you again!

Thank you for sharing your testimony! It helps to know that it is not abnormal to be angry with God. Sometimes the idea that we are always to love God is so ingrained in our heads that when something does happen and we feel anger towards Him, that causes guilt on top of anger and pain. I love your song that reminds us that we can always find our way back to a loving relationship with Our Father.

At a difficult time in my life, I was so upset with God. While I was upset with Him, I just wanted to shake my fist at Him, question Him, be angry with Him. But I felt guilty for those things. But a pastor counselor told me that God can handle all that. He knows those thoughts and feelings anyway. We can tell Him how we feel. He can handle it and be that healing balm as well.

Thank You for your testimony. It is helpful to know I can be angry (even at God) as long as I later come back to him for healing. I’ve heard Christians always say that “you can’t fuss at God!” And my response has always been, “why not? He created me, he knew long before it happened I would be angry at him. Besides, he knows what I’m thinking so why not say it?” So I always felt some sense of guilt and yet peace once I came back to him for the forgiveness and comfort.

Yes,Paula!And He loves you right through whatever it is that you were upset about and if you’re heart is open He will heal you through it, too.

The words, “you will never outrun my love,” just really stick with me. In my pursuits if self sufficiency and independence, I find myself being in middle of trying to please God and doing my own will, but my own will never work out until I totally surrender to Him. But I’m angry because my efforts seem futile. But I guess all my efforts to be must be given to Him as well. I have so much to learn!

I was mad at God for a season. Through my anger n negative attitude it destroyed my health, my relationships, and my family! I renewed my relationship towards good in 2009 when my sickness almost killed me. I asked for forgiveness with God n my family, however only God forgave me. My marriage is dissolved- thank God! However my anger n fear towards my ex caused me to lose my children. I have learned many things about unforgivness n anger in the past year and I have realized that I’m still angry with my ex n myself for all the… Read more »

I have been angry at God. When I was about 10 years old, due to Muscular Dystrophy I was no longer ablet to walk. Obviously, I was very upset, and that lasted a couple weeks. I was crying a lot and saying things like, Why me? What did I do to deserve this? Thankfully, I have very loving parents that helped me get through this dark time, and I eventually came to peace with my situation. At that time, I didn’t really have a close relationship with God. Now that I have grown in my relationship with Him, I know… Read more »

I struggle constantly with God about my physical pain. After 19 surgeries I’m exhausted and seem to only hurt worse. I am so blessed though that God is ok that I get mad and don’t understand..my answers of why will not be here on Earth. And even when I’m upset with God, He still loves me and comforts me. Jesus loves us no matter what and there is nothing we can do about it. What an amazing Father we have!!

I loss my second and third children to miscarriages and became very angry with God. After struggling for several years and withdrawing from Him I finally was just honest with God. He can take our honesty. I yelled and cried and just unloaded on Him. He is big enough to handle my anger. He very gently consoled me and showed me how much he loves. Enough to accept we can be angry when we hurt. There is nothing we can say to Him to make God turn His face from us. Even though He is God and I am dust… Read more »

The most difficult seasons in our life all begin with the word , Why? Easy word to say , hard living to follow. The answers are not here on Earth. God does continue to show us enough of the answer to give us stamina to keep running the race. Even if, whatever the reason, God being in it makes purpose to rise from it. The question will your faith be bigger than the circumstances that lie in front of you. Rise up and become the warrior God has equipped you to be.
