Are You Angry?

There is no sense wasting your life being angry about something that happened years ago or even something that happened earlier today.

The word ‘anger’ is one letter away from danger. Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying “whatever is begun in anger ends in shame” and “anger is never without a reason but it seldom has a good one”. It’s so important for us to be aware of any anger issues we have because they can become dangerous and create damage in our lives.

While there are helpful resources people can find like an anger management classes, we need to understand that the holy spirit is the ultimate anger management counselor! Jesus said in John 14:26 but the helper (comforter, advocate, intercessor counselor strengthener, stand by) the Holy Spirit whom the FATHER will send in my name. HE will teach you all things we can be confident that when we go to God HE will give us the help we need to face the truth about ourselves and overcome our problems.

We all get opportunities to be angry. You may not be the kind of person who gets road rage but you may still get angry over what the Bible calls ‘trifling controversies over ignorant questionings that foster strife and breed quarrels. (2nd Timothy 2:23)

I wasted so many years of my life being angry about things that didn’t really matter and trying to control people and things I was never going to be able to control. The truth is there’s nothing better than peace and God’s peace is our souls equals power in our lives. If you want more power and energy in your life you can’t be angry all the time.

In order to find freedom from anger or to be free of anything, we have to face truth and take responsibility for our behavior. Blaming other people or circumstances and making excuses never changes anything!

John 8:31 through 32 teaches us that if we about in Christ continually obeying his teachings we will know the truth and the truth will set us free I want to encourage you to go to God first when you are angry tell him honestly how you feel and make a determined decision to forgive there’s no sense wasting your life being angry about something that happened years ago or even something that happened earlier today take a few moments and pray something like this:

“Lord, I need your help to deal with my anger. I I thank you that because of your love, grace and mercy and the power of the holy spirit in my life, I don’t have to act on those foolish feelings that can cause problems in my life and hurt me and others…..”

Spend time quietly waiting on God with an open heart to hear what he has to say to you. Study what his word says about anger and being angry and trust him to make some positive, healthy changes that will bring more of his peace and power into your life!

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!
