Topic: Anger (01/24/05)

TITLE: Anger Management

Anger….. I’ve experienced it myself,
Disguised at times, as disappointment,
Usually in somebody else.

That feeling of anger, I think that it may start,
As getting your feelings hurt,
You know, that little tug at your heart.

That tug that leaves you questioning,
“How could they, or he, or she…?”
“I always thought they cared, more than that, for me.”

And then anger, left alone,
Progresses to resentment and rage.
Then you find yourself at the bitterness stage.

And then by God’s grace, you begin to see,
You come to your senses,
As you say, “Lord I pray to Thee”.

That’s what should have been done, right at the start,
Praying constantly to Him,
With all of your heart.

You’ll find yourself resolving,
Whatever issue might be there,
Remember, the first step, is to go to Him in prayer.

That’s not always the first thing, that comes to mind,
But many times He sends His grace,
Through others you will find.

Someone least expected, will give you advice,
Words that truly,
Sound so wise.

You think, “That’s just what I needed to hear,
To get my heart,
And my thinking in gear”.

Getting back to being the Christian,
That the Lord wants me to be,
Trusting in Him, and not in me.

Bear with me, I too, am learning day to day,
In this class I like to call,
“Anger Management—God’s Way”.

Captured angers by-ways well....and the only true stop-gap.
Thanks for the beautiful way you set it to verse.
