Have you ever felt like God was mad at you? I’ve had moments when it seemed that everything in my life was going wrong, and the harder I tried to remedy those situations, the worse my circumstances became.
In my early years, I had a limited view of the “Christian life,” which kept me at arm’s length from God at all times. I’d say my prayers every night but in my everyday decisions, I resisted including Him. As a result, any time my circumstances shifted to an uncomfortable place I’d immediately feel a rush of guilt and assume that God was punishing me for something.
