Recovery…Not Cover Up!


Some one recently said “You don’t walk a mile, you walk a step.  A mile is a series of small steps”.  Recovery from a lifestyle of  harboring bitterness and anger is not always a “one- stop-that’s-it-I’m-done-deal”.  As in maneuvering a sailboat at sea, it will require conscious and repeated decisions to tack a different direction than the way we’ve handled offensive and hurtful experiences of the past.

We want to be in control of our emotions of anger — expressing the feelings, and yet not being controlled by the feelings, or out of control because of the feelings.  Moreover, We don’t want to tamp the anger down (stuffing it, suppressing it, or keeping it in).  What we want is recovery,  not cover up.

Dealing properly with anger will require us to learn how to be angry at ourselves (imagine that).  It may involve acknowledging that you are angry with God and require you to tell Him so — now that’s a scary thought!  (Denying your anger at God is more harmful than the actual anger itself.) You might as well tell Him you are angry at Him.  Trying to hide it from Him is equal to trying to hide water in a colander.

Ending at the proper point is wisdom.  So we will end by wishing all the mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day. You all are truly God’s blessing to the world!

Until my next post…Have A Great Day!
