Are there any other moms out there who are as prone to “melt-downs” as I am?
I mean really! I get so frustrated, usually with myself, when I do lose it with my family.
That’s the one thing I inherited from my family growing up that I could definitely live without!
So, how do I overcome it? How do I reverse the reactions? Will I ever make the anger completely disappear?
I know it is mostly my choice, but sometimes I honestly don’t feel I have control over my short temper.
I seek to fill my spirit with words from the Lord, so that in times of weakness they come to the front of my mind.
I want to be the loving, understanding, patient, nurturing mother and wife, I’ve seen in so many wonderful Christian women.
“A fool always loses his temper,
But a wise man holds it back. ” Proverbs 29:11
“Control your temper,for anger labels you a fool” Ecclesiastes 7:9
“Don’t sin by letting anger control you.
Think about it overnight and remain silent.” Psalm 4:4
“Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls.” James 1:19-21
