The Heart of a Missionary-

A little wisdom from Psalms

Posted in Insights by misspicture on December 1, 2009

Dont sin by letting anger gain control over you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. Psalms 4:4

How many times do i have to tell myself  to remain silent? I have learned over the years that it is better to bite your  tongue and say “Im too angry to talk right now” than to spit all your anger out and then have to say “Im sorry”.

Im going to provide with some easy steps to control your anger-

1- Search your heart and your motives.

Sometimes we get angry because someone did something we didnt like or didnt feel comfortable with. I encourage you to study your motives first. Why are you really angry about? Is it out of selfishness? Is it out of self-pity? Is it out of envy…? Be honest to yourself and recognize the real reason of your anger.

2- Pray about it.

Ask God to heal your heart first. And then ask Him to give you the right words to tell the other person how you feel.

3- Speak IN love.

No-one listens when you yell. Speak in love. Be vulnerable and humble. Recognize your condition. Say you are sorry for being selfish or envious (if that’s your case). Talk about what you would like the other person to do or stop doing.

4- Come up with a solution.

And stick with it.

I hope these easy steps (ok.. not that easy) would help you have better relationships. Please, dont talk to that person while you are mad. It will make things worst. First recognize your own sin. And then try to solve the problem.

Remember that the aim is Not win de argument. But to solve the problem
