Lament is a cry of belief in a good God,
a God who has His ear to our hearts,
a God who transfigures the ugly into beauty.
Complaint is the bitter howl of unbelief in any benevolent God in this moment,
a distrust in the love-beat of the Father's heart.
... the more I learn His love...
the more I genuinely lament,
complaint that trusts His heart.
