Nothing is more important than what you think about God…and what you think God thinks about you! Imagine two brothers, ages 8 and 9, and both have a terrible day at school. Last chosen at sports, bullied and mocked by a stronger boy. The older brother climbs into his father’s lap to share his sorrows. Dad listens, rocks his son gently, and speaks quiet words of love and affirmation. After about 30 minutes of resting quietly together, the boy jumps down and runs off, soul restored. The younger brother takes a different route. Avoids eye contact, goes directly to his room, and slams the door. This pain goes unprocessed. So how do you relate to God when life hurts?
