In the middle of the Bible is a collection of the best poetry ever written. These poems explore, express, celebrate and complains about man’s relationship with God. This isn't shrink-wrapped easy believism. This ancient literature isn't trying to convince you of God’s existence or lay a religious guilt trip on you so you'll behave yourself. These are poems that portray conflict between what man thinks about God and what man thinks God does. There is a section of these poems grouped together that are called “lamentations.” These poems question whether God is even there. And if maybe he is, does he care about what is going on in our lives.

This is where most people live. This is what most people think when they think about God. But not very many people admit it and none are more honest than the writers of these poems called Psalms. Most people you meet are either religious or unreligious, and my assertion is not very many people in your life are really honest about what they think about God.

I think God forces you into situations where you’re confronted with this fact. This is what I write about in post 21 in our book blogging project. Let me know if any of this resonates with you.
