If I don't feel like taking responsibility for beating my wife should I just give that to God because I can't handle the psychological ramifications of that action? I understand what your saying but how far do you take that logic?

To cut to the chase: there is something wrong about the way you see God or your expectations of Him. Keep asking and knocking. Be willing to accept the answer. And btw, platitudes piss me off too.
keep checking in .. your calm makes me calm .. ..

When we honestly seek God's will for us and ask him to direct our thoughts and use us as vessels for his plan a powerful connection is formed and life becomes meaningful.
When you surrendering your will to God's he will place you where you need to be and when you need to be there.
...and it is God’s will that all people learn about that Kingdom and his purpose for us.—Psalm 37:11, 29; Isaiah 9:7.
God wants us to benefit ourselves.
...(Isaiah 48:17, 18)...
God wants us to walk in his paths.
The Bible says that our Creator wants to “instruct us about his ways” so that we can “walk in his paths.” (Isaiah 2:2, 3) He has organized “a people for his name” to make his will known throughout the earth.—Acts 15:14.
The Bible’s answer
God’s will is that you come to know him as a Person, draw close to him, and then love and serve him with your whole heart. (Matthew 22:37, 38; James 4:8) You can learn how to do God’s will from the life and teachings of Jesus. (John 7:16, 17) Jesus didn’t just talk about the will of God—he lived it. In fact, Jesus said that his purpose in life was “"to do, not my will, but the will of him that sent me."”—John 6:38.
