Session 6.48 for November 30, 2014
Have you ever felt like you were waiting on God to show up? Have you ever felt like crying out to God in sadness or grief or frustration? The author of today's text is doing just that. Today, we live in a religious culture that does not often encourage this kind of honest conversation with God — however, when we look through the bible, being honest about one's experience with God, even if it is a negative experience, is a strong tradition in scripture. Expressing lament is an important part of faith in the bible and no one who engages it is condemned for being honest with God.
