Giving thanks in a bad situation in the midst of anger. I am not sure how well I do with that.
Then when the anger is coming from God. So then I start thinking how do I know God is angry? When things go badly? when chaos surrounds me? when I lose loved ones? when I get really ill? Do any of these count for God's anger? I am uncomfortable with such pairings. I would not believe that everyone in difficult times is encountering an angry God. I am also uncomfortable elevating martyrdom to a goal for Christianity today. In Nigeria pastors and church members are being killed in significant numbers by those who oppose Christianity.
vs 2 I do need to work on trusting God, letting go of fear, finding strength and song in God
and waiting, behaving for the salvation I am becoming.
