Psalms of a Woman

19 Nov

Praise You In The Storm

 On Anger

Who hasn’t felt much anger?

Who hasn’t felt much pain?

When one has felt the weight of life

Who hasn’t felt the strain?

 

But undue anger stirs the soul

As bitterness does churn

It heats the coals of inner hate

And in the heart does burn

 

Thus joy that comes from serving

This fruit of how we live

Is then replaced with darkness

The fruit that anger gives

 

But one must be admonished

To see the discipline

That when our trials weigh us down

We take all things to Him

 

For every matter bringeth forth

The good in every man

If taken to the proper source

And left in God’s great hands

 

For He is our great Counselor

Our inner pain He hears

E’en though in anger we do cry

He sees through it our tears

 

And God will surely help us

Though time it’ll surely take

But refining is a process

For gold, He will you make

 

Then shine you will for all to see

God’s humbleness in you

They’ll give the glory to our Lord

When He has seen us through

Let us not let anger deter us from our growth in overcoming, even though it will often cause us to fall back in our progress in our struggle with our trials and/or addictions.  There is a God who has suffered great persecution from others, being ridiculed, falsely accused, mocked, plotted against.  He suffered mental and physical abuse from others, but His faith in His Father through His Holy Spirit helped Him to have hope and strength in Him and have courage to live His Father’s way without striking back.  We can also obtain that spirit to fight the good fight, to overcome our difficulties if we come to Christ and the Father and ask forgiveness and help in our time of need.  He is the God who is greater than ourselves. He took all the abuse, so that we wouldn’t have to.  He suffered as many of us do, so that He could understand how we feel and be our great Intercessor to help us, hearing our cries and giving us strength in time of need. He has been there for me, and He can for you!

Isaiah 53:4  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:3 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

 Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

2 Corinthians 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

 Hang in there!!

    Thanks for sharing. I wish I could put my words together better. For I to have written my innermost feelings at times in somewhat of a poetic form.
    I am glad that our Father gave you the talent. :o)
