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.
