Complaint #1 – Injustice in the World

First Thessalonians chapter 5 calls us to pray, give thanks, and praise God at all times.  But what happens when I’m not feeling very thankful?  How do I come into my time with God if I’m not feeling very full of praise?  Do I “fake it until I make it?”  In the back of the Old Testament, we find a guy who was probably asking some similar questions.  He decided to simply bear his soul to God and share his real, raw emotions.  And guess what – it became scripture.  Habakkuk lays the groundwork for what it looks like for us to “complain” to God and live in step with Him.
