Is your commute plagued by road rage? Do you battle difficult people every time you step into the grocery store? How often have you sat alone after an argument, regretting your harsh words? Do you try to control your emotions, but find yourself at the mercy of unpredictable anger?
Anger can make you feel like a powder keg, vulnerable to even the smallest spark. When you lose control, the flames can be explosive, singeing your relationships, charring your work and burning your health. In truth, anger is a positive emotion, designed by God as a warning signal to alert you to a problem. But if left unchecked, anger grows into deep destructive bitterness.
God can help you uncover the source of your anger whether injustice, hurt, fear or frustration. He is ready and able to heal your heart and help you control your anger before it controls you!
