We try to escape the cobweb of anger, but the more we try get loose from the cobweb the more it wraps around us. There are even remains of anger long after we thought we had given it to God. I lingers there stuck to our shirt. Once we have gotten it all out of our hair, off our clothes, and we think we have gotten away from it- BAM there it is again another cobweb.
Anger- is the process of trying to control something we can't control!
UFFDA (as my Norweign heritage says).
I WANT! I WANT! I WANT!
One thing I love about Star Wars is that there is a dark side. No I don't like the dark side, but it shows that those who believe in the force also know this to be true. The heros fight the dark side. But when we allow anger and hate to overcome us in other words the need to control everything we cross over to the dark side. We lose the ability to even tell that we are on the wrong side!
Annikin was a sweet innocent boy who gave freely to help others. He trained for years, but in the end he wanted to control the fact that he knew his wife would die in child birth. So he decides to "try out the dark side" so he can save his wife from death. He wanted to control the situation.
Who could blame him? However.... this lead him to become the villan instead of the hero.
I want to seek God to break free from the cycle of anger- the need to control the situations around me. It is hard. I am going to have to lay it down at God's feet every day! To trust Him fully with everything. I am going to have to spend time in the word, in prayer, and walking in the Spirit to ward off that feeling of needing control.
Who else is with me?
