Dealing With Anger & Fighting For A Cause
There are times that I think anger in men is an epidemic. I seem to run into angry men everywhere I go. Many of us live with our anger so close to the surface that it is just waiting for an opportunity to jump out and take over. Have you ever been surprised by your anger? Have you ever felt you were watching a crazed person acting out their anger, and then realized it was you? Has your anger ever caused your spouse to be fearful? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, or even if you had to think twice before you answered, it may be time to deal with your anger.
Pastor Craig says that his experience tells him most men are really angry at themselves. Let that sink in for a moment. Is there any truth in that for you? Is it time to take that first step in dealing with your anger by admitting that you have a problem? Remember, getting help is not a sign of weakness but truly a sign of strength.
How does your anger affect you, your spouse, and your kids?
If you ask yourself, “why am I frustrated?” what is your answer?
If you have an anger problem, will you reach out for help today?
What is the cause that God is calling you to fight for? If nothing comes to your mind, commit to pray this prayer daily for thirty days:
Father, I want a cause to believe in and to fight for. Please lead me to the cause you have for me.
Thank you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
