There was a time when I was very angry. Angry at myself, angry at people in my World and even angry at the whole World…this led to depression and eventually thoughts of hopelessness, that everyone was better off without me.
Then I found God.
Some of my loved ones thought it was a cliche but after 11 years, no one can deny the impact and change in my life.
When you start to delve into WHY you get angry…it can make you feel vulnerable and most certainly emotional but it was the best thing that I have ever done.
One of my favourite things to talk about now is “expectations”. Ones that you have of others and those that others have of you.
The truth is that expectations are met with pain because no one will ever meet them – regardless of who they are. We always have grand ideas of what the “ideal” should be in our lives – the truth is…the World is broken and therefore the ONLY one we should look to – is God.
He is the unmovable, unchanging, all powerful, all-seeing, all-knowing and eternal God. He always was and always will be, a loving Father, that created you for far more than this World can imagine. There is not one person that God created, that He does not love and want to have a relationship with and so, if you are living in a hopeless situation; one where anger drives you; that you feel the World owes you because of “stuff” that has happened – Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life – to being free of all that hurt and pain.
I am a walking testament to His goodness and grace.
