‘The right way to express anger is to talk to God about it. Tell him all about the way you feel and ask him to help you manage your feelings properly. One thing that helps me deal properly with anger is to realize that sometimes God permits people to irritate me in order to help me grow in patience and unconditional love. The offending person’s bad behaviour is not right but God often uses them as sandpaper to smooth away rough edges in our lives. You see, God is more concerned about changing our characters than he is about changing our circumstances to make them comfortable for us.’
