Psalm 7: 6
Arise, O Lord, in anger!
Stand up against the fury of my enemies!
Wake up, my God, and bring justice!
David seemed to have no problems talking to God this way. So I guess God understands when we get angry when we are desperate and when we have had enough.
I was there at that point again yesterday. A call from a desperate child – and I can understand why but I am at the moment unable to come to her assistance with more than an encouraging word and a promise of what help I can give from a distance. So I call out to God.
Then I get home and want to talk but the opportunity doesn’t arrive and the TV is on. So when I want to talk I become an annoyance and my needs don’t get heard or understood. So I call out to God.
I am really glad God isn’t too busy or watching TV or talking to someone else so I can’t butt in. He listens.
And He acts. He is not sleeping or too tired himself to listen.
Thank you for listening to me yesterday, so that before I even asked you were working on it. Even when I couldn’t see that you were. Thanks for how you change desperation into hope. Sorry I get so impatient and so angry for thinking somehow that you aren’t doing anything. My trust in you grows God but it is still such a little thing.
So here we go again, Lord. A new day. Thanks for the reminder yesterday that you are with me and acting, not sleeping.
