Speak Life Challenge // Day 4
When Anger Comes Into the Picture
These Scripture verses show us that anger doesn't do us any good in relationships.
Yet it is one of the easiest traps we fall into when we communicate.
I hope the following will be helpful in guiding you handle anger.
Zip your lips. Pause for a moment. Let God come into your heart.
Say, "I am tempted to sin with my words right now. Please allow me a few minutes to talk to God about it. Can we come back to this?"
Go to a quiet room and surrender your anger to God through prayer.
Ask God to reveal to you why you are angry. (James 4:1-3)
Confess, repent and ask for wisdom on how to handle this conflict with whom that made you angry. Ask God to guide your lips.
In addition, I have personally used the conflict wheel with Grant.
The conflict wheel consists of 5 questions to help you talk through a conflict:
What it made me think?
What it made me feel?
What do I want?
What will we do going forward?
Anger can quickly heat up a conversation and could cause deep wounds. Let us pray for ourselves that we may be wise women who stop the flame from kindling into a full-blown fire. Let us have good sense and take things to the Lord so our hearts may be changed by Him.
