Anger at god

She cried out, why is this so hard, why is he suffering so much?  Please take him lord I can’t take it anymore.  He was gone in the next two hours.  Since then I have been angry.  Why did he have to suffer so much?  Why did it have to be so hard.

This was one of my clients share in our grief group.  I asked her if she was angry at god.  This is not something we talk about in loss.  We can be angry at the doctors, the medical staff but not God.

When my husband died suddenly.  I had the pleasure of identifying his mangled body.   After that I was angry at god, and formed a punishing relationship with love at its source.

Have any of you had anger at god?   What has caused it?  Do you feel deeply ashamed and uncomfortable about this?

I would love to hear from you on this topic.
