And God’s like,
If I may be 100% honest here, please …
I hate crap like this. God is laughing at my plans, my hopes & dreams for my life. Great. Just what I want to hear. The Creator of the universe is laughing at the fact that I want to get married & have a family. Awesome.
If that were the Christian God, I would find Him repugnant. I could never believe in a God who could be that capricious.
Some may find things like this to be amusing in some way. I can’t. And I never have. (Hey, at least I’m consistent.)
I’m an intelligent guy. I realize exactly how the statement that God “laughs” at out plans is meant to be taken. He has other plans for us that we (at least common schmucks like me) can’t know of before hand. It’s hard to see His hand except looking backwards over our lives. Yeah, I get that.
But a god who would laugh at me & my most deeply felt desires - those I believe I have discerned to be from Him - is not something I find helpful to my faith in any way.
