Perhaps you have felt like this about God – that He is scary. Yet He is supposed to be good, approachable and loving. I am reminded of the C.S. Lewis comment that goes – “Safe? Of course, He is not safe, but He is good.”
Ed Welch in his article, “God Scares Me To Death,” captures this idea in his own way. I commend it to you.
