Angry by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/06/11
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: As I talk with women and look into their eyes, I can see the effects of deep hurt and pain. One of the things I hear more and more from women is “I’m angry. I’m angry at my husband, angry with my parents, angry with God.”
We have so many women today with wounded spirits, harboring deep hurts. When they don’t deal with these wounds God’s way, it leads to a smoldering bitterness, anger—even revenge and violence in some cases.
Freedom comes when we trust God to deal with the other person. He’s the most powerful judge there is. We need to ask for forgiveness for any wrong responses we’ve had, then we can choose to forgive.
It may not be easy, but by faith it really is possible. Is there any bitterness in your heart? Would you choose the pathway of forgiveness today?
