Key Thought for this session:
“Ultimately I can go only one of two ways — which path do I take?”
What about traumatic situations? Here’s another one. During a difficult time in her life, my friend Rhonda, who was overcome with heart ache, asked me this:
You can really hear her frustration, can’t you? Have you ever felt this way? Do you get angry at God when life stinks? I hear this sort of thing a lot. I’ve struggled with these same thoughts myself, at times. What core assumptions drive these feeling and thoughts?
Obviously, she is hurting and probably not ready to communicate too deeply about this at the moment. But when she is, what might be an approach to help Rhonda think about her situation in a more helpful way.
