Is God Angry?


It sounds like

God is really angry,

as my house is shaking

with each

Bang of thunder,

coming from the Heavens,

immediately followed by

the

Flashing Ligtning

and the

Pounding Rain.

He has my attention

because

I would be angry at me~

"It wasn’t so long ago that you were mired in that old stagnant life of sin.

You let the world, which doesn’t know the first thing about living, tell you how to live.

You filled your lungs with polluted unbelief, and then exhaled disobedience."*

Doing it my way.

Can you relate?

"We all did it, all of us doing what we felt like doing, when we felt like doing it,

all of us in the same boat."*

If I was God I would be angry,

but luckily I am not God~

"It’s a wonder God didn’t lose his temper and do away with the whole lot of us.

Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us.

He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ.

He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

Then He picked us up and set us down in highest heaven

in company with Jesus, our Messiah" (Ephesians 2: 1-6 The Message)

God has my attention

as the

Thunder keeps roaring

as the

Lightening keeps flashing

as the

Rain keeps pounding

and

God keeps Loving

because

that is all

He knows what to do~

“This is how much God loved the world:

He gave his Son, His one and only Son.

And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed;

by believing in Him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending His Son

merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.

He came to help, to put the world right again.

Anyone who trusts in Him is acquitted;

anyone who refuses to trust Him

has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why?

Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind

Son of God when introduced to Him." (John 3:16, The Message)

Thank you God

for keeping me up all night

with

the sounds of the storm

to remind me

that

You just want my attention.
