Thanks to all who attended the Refresh and Renew Conference! God showed up and lives were changed for His glory.
The highlighted link is for those who attended my breakout session during the conference on Building a Spiritual Foundation, and wanted the second page of the handout.
It won’t mean as much to those who didn’t attend, although it might provide some food for thought.
I do hope to incorporate the material in a future post.
This post is part two. Read part one here.
Once I understood that anger is an emotion that I AM GOING TO FEEL, I made a list of things that trigger it.
My list of triggers looked like this:
A child spilling their cup of milk
Children rolling their eyes as I talk to them
Slow drivers in front of me when I am already late for an appointment
My husband reading his mail while we are eating together
A messy bathroom after it was just cleaned
The list went on and on.
Because I also understood that anger is a secondary emotion, I examined my list to identify the underlying problems.
Identification was easy.
My real problems were selfishness, pride, and a sense of entitlement.
I asked God to help me to remember that I was not my own. I was bought with the blood of Jesus. My purpose on this earth is to serve, as Jesus came to serve.
My desire to feel angry but not sin, became more important to me than my selfishness and pride.
I’ll share what I did when I became angry, in the next post.
Then, I’ll share how I helped my children identify their anger issues and learn how to deal with them.
How do you deal with anger?
