We’re continuing our series called “Matters of the Heart” as we work our way through the Psalms to help us develop and maintain emotional wellness by learning how to honestly respond to our feelings and how to process our emotions in a healthy way.
Today we are talking about anger. As women, I think we feel we need to be these nurturing caretakers that are always so soft and sweet and never get angry. And as Christians, I think we have this false idea that to feel anger is sinful and not Christ-like. So we don’t really like to admit when we’re angry because we think it’s bad to be mad.
So let’s make this very clear. It is not sinful to feel angry. However, if we allow anger to stay in our hearts then not only will it completely destroy our joy and peace but it’s an open door for the enemy to take advantage of us and lead us into sin. So how can we manage this emotion in a healthy way that respects our souls and honors God? We’re answering this question and more in this week’s video “How to Control Anger?” Enjoy!
