  • Why have you rejected me?

    Posted on May 30th, 2013 rhonda No comments


    “Pastor . . .  told me that instead of complaining about you,

    I should bring my complaints to you,

    so that’s what I’m doing now; and I hope that you won’t punish me &

    put me in hell because of my saying what I’m about to say.”


    That’s how I started off my 3-page letter to Jesus Christ.  It was a long time coming.  A few months ago, I told people in my church that the last 2-3 years have been the worst in my life.  It’s been one challenge & one defeat after another.  I thank God that I’ve been able to get up after each knock-down.  I remain faithful to my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. 


    Nonetheless, I could not be at peace.  Every day, I would think about the people who hurt me or the things in my life that went wrong.  I would meditate on them all day.  Even when I consciously turned away from thinking negative thoughts by remembering Bible verses or singing Christian songs in my head; as soon as the song was over, the negative thoughts and the anger would come back. Thinking like that all day is painful & destructive.  I realized that I was sick.  I also tried praying for my enemies – for years.  It made no difference.  I realize that this advice is in the Bible, and I did try it, but it gave me no relief.   Eventually, I realized that I wasn’t just angry about the stuff that was going on in my life; but I was angry at Jesus.  


    Since praying wasn’t working, I decided to move onto something else.  I’m aware of one technique people use to get rid of their anger.  It’s to write letters to the people who angered them.  You don’t actually send the letter, but you can have a trusted confidante read it; or you can shred it or burn it.  I’d always heard that the technique helps dissipate anger.


    It’s true.  Holding in my anger just makes it intensify.  When I started letting it out, I felt better.  I’ve never actually gone through & counted, but the Pastor who told me to go to God with my problems also told me that most of the Psalms were poems of anger, frustration & sadness.  My Lord & I are back on good terms now.  Not that He ever left, but He’s helped me to see things from a different perspective.


    I’d like to hear from the rest of you.  How do you get rid of your anger?  What do you do when you’re angry at God?  Assuming you got over it, did you see any changes in your life?


    “You are God my stronghold.  Why have you rejected me?

    Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”

    Psalm 43:2

    • Its good to hear that you have been put at peace from your anger, 1-2yrs is a long time to hold on to something and I’m pretty sure that it was tiring as well. What I have learned is that just like gardening, when a weed shows up you cant just cut the weed above the ground because it is rooted beneath the ground, the same is true with problems that we face here on earth. To every earthly problem it is likely that it is rooted in the spiritual realm.

      James chapter 1 states:

      Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

      He says that if we lack wisdom to come to him. If we keep it in context it is saying that if we lack wisdom in regards to the test and trials that we are going through then we should seek him for the underlying cause of the issue. We have to take it to the spirit realm and seek his face and he will not only give us the answer that we are seeking about the matter but he will also give us peace and reaffirm his grace that is over us.

      Job suffered tremendously but in the end because he endured and never turned his back on the Lord he received double for his trouble.

      Psalm 23 states:
      Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

      We have to remember to walk through the valley not camp out in the valley, and expect that there is much more greater things in store on the other side.

      I declare that though you have gone through a tough trial in the past couple of years the Lord has far more greater things in store for you and you will overcome all obstacles that ATTEMPT to hender your progress.

      We are giant killers and the things that try to come up against us are on goliath all over again. We have dominion over all things the power of life and death are in our tongues and as long as we speak life when death tries to shows its ungly face, we can always expect to come out on top.

      I know this was a lot, but this is what I remember whenever I’m faced with anger,frustration and disappointment.

      • Amen and thank you for your words of encouragement.

        I have been giong through some stuff over the past 3 years and sometimes the thought has crossed my mind, “Lord, where are you?” It was seeming to me that God was angry with me and that’s why I can’t seem to move further ahead. I’ve felt rejected

        I am now understanding that you can be going hrough things because you in fact ARE following Christ. If Jesus had to go through, even to the point where He had sweat drops blood in the garden, what makes me think I won’t have to “endure” as well. If our Father has overcome the world, what makes me think I will not overcome the world as well? If after Jesus prayed and asked if there could be another way to do his Father’s will (in the garden before being arrested and began his journey to cross) and after he “went through” he accomplished what would become our ultimate blessing. Well, I speak into the lives of everyone reading (and to myself as well)…we WILL come through our obstacles–triumphantly! Oh, what is waiting at the other side of all of the trials and tribulations! We will not comes out empty!Thank You Lord for what is about to blow our minds!
