Overdrawn at the schadenfreude bankJames 4:3 explains the source of much disappointment in a Christian's life:
You ask but do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
Here we might barter for a little both/and from God. "If you can't, O Lord, grind to dust the one who is obnoxious to me -- and, let's face it, we both know he's no righteous one -- could You at least knock him down a peg or two? Sure, I'll find it delectable in a way maybe I shouldn't, but You'll be working some real justice too."
