Frustration is excellent soil for growing a demanding spirit.
The beginning of a proper response to frustrating circumstances is a clear recognition of who's in charge. To handle frustration by reminding ourselves how much God loves us is a good second step, but not the first one. We must take our place as a creature before our Creator and then explore the wonder of our Creator's loving character. An awareness of God's love casts out our fear, but subjection to His authority deals with our demandingness. (L. Crabb)
