When I was a first married, I remember validating my angry responses by deciding I was just an angry person… My defense mechanism was to put up a wall of anger so I wouldn’t get hurt. Little did I know that God had a word for me!

Very patiently one morning in my quiet time He whispered to me, “I don’t make angry people – that is a choice you’ve made.”

At that very moment I was confronted with my sin. Instead of trusting God with my heart, I wanted full control. I brought anger into our marriage and it was ruining our intimacy.

At a conference this weekend I learned that ANGER is like mold in your house – you may not know it’s there but it is harmful to your health and can kill, steal, and destroy. Prolonged anger can lead to bitterness and directed inward, can lead to depression and anxiety.

Sisters, join me in putting your anger and need to control your life into Jesus’ hands and get ready to receive your FREEDOM 🙌🏼

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” – Galatians 5:1 (NIV)
