"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

Abuse


Where does your anger stem from? Some type of abuse, sexual (childhood molestation, rape) , physical, emotional or all three? Or could it be a divorce you are experiencing, whether you are the one getting a divorce, or are a child that has physically grown up into an adult, but mentally and emotionally still carry the scars/guilt/pain of divorced parents so long ago? How about adultery, rejection, jealousy, bitterness, envy, resentment, pride, an untimely illness or death of a loved one, etc.? I can go on and on and on. Or you just don't know!!
The truth is...... anger not in its proper form, is destructive!! Until you get to the root of your anger, you will never be free from it. It will be there to haunt you. Believe you me, I still struggle with anger. I find myself at times still dealing with a lot of things from my past that tick me off literally. Seek some good Christian counseling, besides the Great Counselor (God). There is nothing wrong with seeking help to talk things out. It does help. Grant it, it can be very painful, in fact some times extremely painful, but worth it in the end, if you are truly open to getting healed from the inside out!! Also, be transparent with God and tell Him exactly how you feel. He will NOT fall off His throne when He hears what you have to say! Hey, God knows you can be real. After all He made you. I thank God that I am not where I once was, but am glad where I have come from.
I also try and reflect on what Jesus said, "Be angry, and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your wrath." Ephesians 4:26 Each day we all encounter frustrations in our lives that may bring about anger which may result in things said that we should not have. "But now you must also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth." Colossians 3:8 God knows our hearts He knows our hurts and He knows what it is like to be human.

  1. I think alot of people feel anger is a bad thing, and every form of it is sin. That's just not so! Anger at times changes injustices that are seen, and makes sure they are dealt with.

    Unhealthy anger on the other hand will eat you alive! The journey with counseling is a very important, and helps I agree!

  3. Anger is very destructive, I certainly agree if it is not dealt with through the Holy Spirit.

  5. This is a good article and helpful for those Christians who believe that they should only feel the emotion of happiness.

  6. Very true, I was physically, emotionally and verbally abused by my mother. Then I was molested by a next door neighboor. I walking in anger for years until my mother died and I decieded that it was time to seek help. It was hard, but God is the only one who got me through it. And my marriage, parenting and friendships have all healed because of the grace of Jesus Christ. Awesome post. Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope to hear from you more. God bless you from Tanya

  10. Thanks for checking out my blog. I love that you wrote on this. I am dealing with my frustrations and anxiety. I was one that kept all my anger in (talk about letting the sun go down - many, many suns).

    I am thankful I am not where I used to be, but I am also not where I am going to be. I am a traveler.

  12. Thanks for stopping by my Blog the other day. I love your photo of the parakeets. It would fit right in at The Prayer Walk - in SHEPHERD'S WALK at Sweetbriar!

    I appreciate this post about anger. My very dear friend lived more than half her life angry and didn't know that was the issue. She already knew Christ - but didn't know His power to overcome that anger - until she asked Him - when He finally exposed it! She has lived in freedom - healed - ever since. She is the sweetest and most gentle person I know. What a transformation Christ can do when we allow Him the healing power!

    Glad to meet you...

    Choosing JOY,
