Waiting, Anger, and Doctor Who – #Bible365

Well heres the story.

Simply put: The Doctor and Rory become separated from Amy, who in turn became trapped on an alien world. The Doctor being, well the The Doctor comes up with a rescue plan to get her back. Except the rescue plan goes a little wrong, and they come across a bitter battle hardened Amy that had to wait 36 years to be rescued.

Leaving her husband Rory with an impossible choice:

Confused.

Angry.

Upset.

Rory lashes out at the Doctor. Demanding to know why The Doctor’s never done the obvious thing…

Confused.

Angry.

Upset.

It can be easy to lash out at God.

Feel that way? Its ok.  Try reading Psalm 42, particularly the last few verses:

9-10 Sometimes I ask God, my rock-solid God,
“Why did you let me down?
Why am I walking around in tears,
harassed by enemies?”
They’re out for the kill, these
tormentors with their obscenities,
Taunting day after day,
“Where is this God of yours?”

11 Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul?
Why are you crying the blues?
Fix my eyes on God—
soon I’ll be praising again.
He puts a smile on my face.
He’s my God.

David felt like that as well. I guess the good news is that God wants a relationship with his children, even if that means having to deal with a child-like strop every now and then…
