I want to talk about anger, why because I am ANGRY. Much of this anger comes from the frustration of not being “in” or “able” to control situations and yes, even people. But I do not know why I think so highly of myself?? Do I really think I am going to have the solution to it ALL? And if I do, that is a dangerous game, isn’t it?
I continue to hit my head against this proverbial wall. My head should look like a bumpy mess about now. There are those in my life, most from my past that can unravel me in a moment’s notice. That anger I speak of isn’t that annoying kind, it is that heated variety that you can feel rising from below.
Thank GOD for a loving GOD that does NOT measure me how I measure others. Wouldn’t that be scary???
BUT, I am getting a teensy weensy better. I remember to pray way sooner than I used to. I remember that GOD will handle this and it will all work out.
18 If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. 19Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord. 20"BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD."…
PRAYER: JESUS, for me and whomever may be reading this that may have that rising anger inside: Please FATHER quiet that storm, help us to get to YOU before we act out in it. Whatever or whomever brings this surge of emotion in us JESUS, be there in the situation or with that someone. I would like to pray LORD for the anger and your forgiveness BUT also FATHER for anyone who may be the target of the anger, whether we believe they deserve it or not. IN JESUS name I pray, AMEN. Thank you JESUS for giving me what I do not deserve!
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
