Complaining or Lamenting
How can you tell if you are lamenting or complaining all the time?
How can you tell if you are lamenting or complaining all the time? The Bible invites us to lament, and tells us not to complain. Is this a contradiction?
In this episode Gretchen and Katie talk about "calling a thing what it is" when it comes to things that we are upset about. We look at the difference between grumbling and complaining and lamenting to God--bringing our pain straight to him.
We talk about the guilt that is often put on people who are in a season of lament, the use of community in all of this, and the pressure to be happy all of the time.
Without any planning, this episode was recorded a couple of weeks before Gretchen's family experienced the painful unexpected loss of her father-in-law. We grieve, but as ones who have hope.
