Anger! How to find Peace?

I am not ashamed to say that I have an issue with anger. There are many times that I blow my top over the smallest things such as: dirty dishes, clothes in the floor, my employees not sweeping or cleaning, and even if my cat looks at me the wrong way. I grew up with a father who was angry a lot until he came to find Christ. Believe me when I say that this is one trait I wish I didn’t inherit.
Deborah Smith Pegues takes us on a journey on how to tame our anger in 30 days and yes at first I was like this is a joke there is no taming my anger, but Jesus had a different plan when this book was placed in my possession for me to read.  Ms. Pegues tells events from her own life about how anger took over and then she goes into the Bible and tells us about anger found in the scriptures. The book is broken into thirty days and each day has a topic and then at the end of each day there is a faith declaration.
This is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers with anger issues or as a gift for someone who you may know that suffers with anger.
Thank you

  1. Crystal, I hopped over to your blog from Wendy Blight’s page (I just finished her Quiet My Anxious Heart Bible study). I, too, struggle with anger and also grew up with an angry father. Oh, the things that are handed down. My anger seems to have gotten more out of control with age, or maybe I’m just experiencing the consequences more deeply. In any event, there’s a Bible verse that instructs us “in your anger, do not sin.” I think it’s in James. And it reminds me that anger, in and of itself, is not a bad thing, it’s what I do in my anger that can be problematic. Thank you for addressing this topic, and I’m glad Wendy did too the first week of her study. I think, as women, we’re taught not to feel anger. It’s acceptable to feel sad but not angry; and if we struggle with anger, there’s something really wrong or damaged about us. Blog posts like yours help to remove the shame from the hearts of us women who deal with anger in our lives. I’m going to take a look at Pegues’ book. Thanks!
