Day 11: Angry No More


IT has been chasing me all my life.

I didn't know what IT was

until IT was time to let IT go.

ANGER.

Yup.

A little ANGRY girl,

who felt trapped inside of

a woman's body

because of

the power of

words that pierced her heart

that told her she was

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved.

Oh that little girl BELIEVED the words

that were LYING to her,

because

GOD does not CREATE a child to be

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved.

But don't we react to what we

BELIEVE,

whether what we

BELIEVE are lies or truth.

BUT then the veil was torn

because

JESUS LOVES

those who were treated and those who are treated as

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved

because

JESUS was treated as

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved.

So what is the little ANGRY child to do?

RECEIVE the PERFECT LOVE of JESUS.

To RECEIVE

HIS FORGIVENESS for herself

and to pass it on to others.

And then it happens.

No longer is this little girl

ANGRY

because

JESUS has LOVED her back together.

Where did the ANGER go?

Oh IT has been replaced by a LOVE

that bursts to

LOVE

those who

FEEL

so

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved.

Oh my friend,

do you have any ANGER tucked inside you

that is eating you alive

because you are holding onto it so tightly?

Will you join me

and

RECEIVE the LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST

so that you will be so overwhelmed

by HIS FORGIVING LOVE

that you will

LOVE

yourself as GOD LOVES you

and

pass along HIS LOVE

to

those who have labeled themselves as

UNacceptable

UNworthy

UNloved.

I was her.

FIRST THINGS FIRST.

"Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor [perpetual animosity, resentment, strife, fault-finding] and slander be put away from you, along with every kind of malice [all spitefulness, verbal abuse, malevolence]. Be kind and helpful to one another,

tender-hearted [compassionate, understanding],

forgiving one another [readily and freely],

just as God in Christ also forgave you"

(Ephesians 3:31-32)

Why?

Because you are

"A CHILD OF LOVE"
