Truth.

So I can write about what I’m thankful for, which was a hot topic (and a good one) with my family this past weekend, as I’m sure it was with yours. I can write how God is moving in our lives and in the support raising process, which He is. But right now I’m writing about what I’m feeling. And the truth? I’m angry.

I’m angry at men who think they can use a woman for their own pleasure and then switch her out with the newest model. I’m angry that they think they have the right to tell a woman what she isn’t worth. I’m angry that in our culture, their sexual exploits are often celebrated, with no afterthought to the hearts of the women involved.

I’m angry at people who try to dissuade Nate and I from where we are called. I’m angry that people sometimes assume we are doing what’s “fun” and our enthusiasm with fizzle out when the next cool fad approaches. I’m angry that some think they can play God in my life and tell me where I’m best fit or called to serve.

But, even though this morning I wake up and find myself righteously angry at the imperfectness of the world I live in, I can, like King David, end with the fact that I serve a King who is just. I serve a God who will one day take all the tears and sorrows and scars away from these women; who will tell Nate and I that he is pleased with our faithfulness. I serve a Creator who doesn’t take sin lightly, and who will come back in such a glorious triumph that there will be no more anger. No more frustration. No more broken hearts.

Psalm 11:7
For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.

Psalm 89:14
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.

Psalm 140:12
I know that the Lord secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy.
