That moment when you get so angry you feel as if you are turning in to a green monster. The outcome is not pleasant. You feel a tornado of emotions running through you. I get that...I have been there. When I get this angry all I see is black...literally all I physically see is black. My voice drops down about 3 octaves and my eyebrows form a straight line, kinda of like a uni brow. It is rare I get to this point, but when I do I have to put myself in time out. I am a slow burner type of girl which is good, If you want to call any form of anger good. Is anger good one may ask. Well yes and no. What the bible says about anger that it is not a sin unless it is self motivated by pride. It is a natural God given emotion. An emotion when it is used correctly. For example, when one is angry at the cause of injustice towards another, and is conveyed in a way to help the other it is not a sin. Anger becomes a sin when it is allowed to boil over without restraint, resulting in a scenario in which hurt is multiplied. Proverbs 29:11 states that a fool vents his feelings, but a wise man holds them back. As a side note: this verse does not mean hold all your anger in, but just be wise how you vent it. If this type of emotion is left unchecked or unresolved then when it is unleashed it can be damaging. The damage is to the one receiving it, or emotionally damaging to the one holding it all in. If you get that point of no return the best thing you can do is drop down on your knees and ask God to take over.
Recently I was in a situation where I felt an injustice was being done to me. At first I was hurt and when the situation was not being resolved in the way "I" thought it should be. The hurt turned to anger...As the wrongdoing started to settle into my soul, the peace I usually felt was turning into turmoil. I wanted to scream out loud, UNFAIR!! This feeling lasted for about a day or two. Then in a moment of clarity I realized that I was not giving it to God. I finally went to Him in prayer and asked Him to take the anger away. In the same moment He helped me examine myself to take ownership of my part of the situation. I must be honest I still don't like the results of what happened, but I now have peace. In addition, it is very humbling when you have to admit to yourself that you are wrong. Not always a good feeling, but if you handle it right it can a lesson that ends well. What I found is from time to time if I ask God to reveal to me what needs adjusting. Even though I know there might be some discomfort involved, it always ends well. Just my 2cents, Missie.
