Anger at God common, even among atheists
If you're angry at your doctor, your boss, your relative or your spouse, you can probably sit down and have a productive conversation about it. God, on the other hand, is probably not available to chat.

And yet people get angry at God all the time, especially about everyday disappointments, finds a new set of studies in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

It's not just religious folks, either. People unaffiliated with organized religion, atheists and agnostics also report anger toward God either in the past, or anger focused on a hypothetical image - that is, what they imagined God might be like - said lead study author Julie Exline, Case Western Reserve University psychologist. ...

"It seems that more religious people are less likely to feel angry at God and more likely to see his intentions as well-meaning, Exline's research found"

Non-Christians; - "Angry at God"
More like;
Angry at their own personal concept of god.

James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God."

Agreed jpw,
When God raises those who are dead in their trespasses and sins in which they used to walk and turns them away from sin, Satan and the world; He convinces them of their sin and its resulting misery. He enlightens their minds in the knowledge of Christ and renews their wills, persuading and enabling them to embrace Jesus Christ freely offered to them in the gospel. That is real power.

And his love extends through all circumstances, until at the end of this life we are given a new home. This is explained in the scriptures.That is how anger can be turned to joy.

Again I agree, Salvation is of the Lord and whatever he uses to bring us to Himself - these light and momentary troubles pales in comparison to the glory that shall be revealed in us

You can stand forgiven before God, to know that He has extended mercy through the cross, the scriptures teach of the love that he extends to those who repent and put their trust in Him. It is a great miracle to have that obstacle removed between us and a holy God.

And his love extends through all circumstances, until at the end of this life we are given a new home. This is explained in the scriptures.

That is how anger can be turned to joy.

Atheists and agnostics routinely ask the question of “where is God during calamities”. They gleefully desire to show that our God does not care or that He doesn’t exist. Here is a question for them; “where is God when everything is going well and you are healthy, safe, and prospering”? If God doesn’t exist when you are suffering, does He exist when you are not? If suffering proves there is no God, does well-being prove there is? HYPOCRITES
