mad angry woman

Why do we get mad at God?
Blaming Him for circumstances we created
For a relationship gone wrong
Because we chose a partner we should have never even dated

Because we can’t make ends meet
Living paycheck to paycheck and always broke
Forgetting the money we wasted, stole, or gambled away
Never had a budget, and now poor life ain’t no joke

Mad because we got addicted to drugs
Or because we drove drunk and crashed the car
Or having our third kid by a third baby daddy
Or because we wanted revenge and went too far

Showed up late to work constantly
No real excuse, just plain lazy and didn’t care
Then want to blame it on the boss being racist
The day we finally get fired, claiming life isn’t fair

Wondering why we can’t keep friends
And why people avoid us by choice
Forgetting all the lying, backstabbing
Pain, tears and hurt we caused with our own voice

Our kids don’t listen, obey or respect us at all
Scratching our head, wondering why
Forgetting we paid them little to no attention
Barely involved in their lives, didn’t even notice them cry

Want to lose weight, but opposed to exercise
Want to go to school, but never attempt to apply

Want to buy a home, but never research the process
Want to get a car, but don’t have a license and refuse to try

Want to travel overseas, but scared to get a passport
Want to get married, but refuse to date
Want a better job, but never fill in applications
Want people to love us, but we’re full of hate

Want to get sober, yet always at the bar
Got all the latest gossip and news
But don’t want people digging up our skeletons
Then be looking surprised and confused when they do

Yes, life has its ups and downs
Plenty of which we can’t control
But I’m talking about the things we can,
The things where we played a vital role

The situations that we created
The obstacles that we put in our own way
Circumstances that literally evolved because of our actions
Hardships resulting from the choices we made everyday

For those, we can’t blame God
And we certainly shouldn’t be mad
At least not at Him
Channeling our anger like He did something bad

Rather, we should take a look in the mirror
Just to pause, reflect, looking back in retrospect
Taking time to realize that we need to work on ourselves
So that we avoid a future full of regret

Looking to God, not with hostility
But in prayer, for help, strength and love
When all else around us fails
And all we can do is look up above

Remembering that God is the one
Who is always by our side
In fact He was there through all the bad choices,
Decisions, mistakes, and things we tried to hide

Waiting for us to embrace His love,
Take His hand and simply trust
That even in the worst of situations
Walking with Him is always a must

So lets not be mad at God
After all He’s the only reason
We are still here with another chance
Alive to make the right choices in this season

quote of Genesis 4:7

Encourage someone else today by sharing:

Too often we get mad - even at God!  We start blaming Him for the chaos and craziness in our lives - even the circumstances we created ourselves.  #madatGod #angry #inthemirrorofGod
