Letting Go of Anger

Today's Scripture

"And 'don't sin by letting anger control you.' Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry." - Ephesians 4:26 NLT.

Thoughts for Today

When confronted with the fact that a loved one has a life-controlling problem, we usually respond in denial. As we work through the denial stage and begin to accept the facts of what is happening, we become angry. We might direct our anger at God, at the circumstances, or at other people who, in our opinion, should have helped. We might look at our dependent family and even at ourselves. This is a time of great emotional pain.

In our anger, we need to see how we have allowed ourselves to be controlled and preoccupied by our loved one. This anger can become a life-controlling problem of its own in our lives.

Consider this ...

If you find yourself in this angry stage, you need to share your feelings with an understanding listener. Be aware of the harm that this anger can do to other relationships, especially to your marriage.

Just keep in mind that these angry feelings are normal, but it is important to work through your feelings and let go of the anger before it consumes you.

Let go and let God.

Prayer : "Our Loving Heavenly Father, help me to work through this anger and not allow it to control me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
