This week we look into anger. For some reason anger is my favorite week of the study. I think it is one of those emotions I tend to embrace for both healthy and unhealthy reasons.
My anger came out in explosive ways. If I am honest I have punched a hole in more than one wall. Anger would overtake me. I couldn’t quite explain it or what would trigger it. It bubbled up inside and once it caught fire it was hard to put out.
When I went through this study it clicked. I realized that part of my anger came from my past abortion and it was ok to be angry. I was able to express anger with those who were involved, people that robbed me of my innocence, and anger with myself.
Be angry and yet do not sin…do not give the devil a foothold. Ephesians 4:26-27
The problem with anger is that it breeds bitterness. We have to release this anger, channel it into passion and use that passion to fuel change for causes greater than ourselves.
I like to think that’s what I’m doing.
