Do these lyrics seem to be for or against God?

“I asked God to slow down the seconds, He does the opposite, that’s what I’m guessin’. I better chill and count my own blessings.”

I really like this song. It’s called Fatima by K’naan. If you listen to it, it sounds like it isn’t against God in anyway but I was just wondering if you think that particular line is more of a bitter feeling or more of a ‘i should just let God take care of things’ feeling’

The latter is how I take it.

It says God didnt answer his prayers so he should be thankful for what he’s got because the time is short.Taken just these verses he says he belives in God and time is short.Not offensive.

I agree it seems to be the latter. :o:thumbsup:
