Still Studying Anger

Humility is key in destroying sinful anger...since anger is a twin to pride. This is such a humbling study..I am so thankful for God's forgiveness. Here is an exerpt from "Secrets of a Happy Heart" by Debi Pryde. It is the first book in an 8 part Titus 2 series

"People like to imagine they are fairly righteous and good-that only certain conditions provoke them to be unnaturally sinful. The truth is that adverse circumstances simply reveal what we really are inside and convince us that God is correct in the way He assesses our sinful condition."

"Those who believe their views make them more lovable, righteous, or superior than others will exhibit a spirit of anger or intolerance when they are corrected or when offenses and differences in opinions arise."

"We succeed in fighting our sinful nature and the wiles of the devil by bowing our will to God and submitting wholly to Christ alone. To submit to God is to resist the devil. James 4:10 'Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.' Humility, then is the cornerstone truth that will lead to true freedom from anger."

I just wish I would have opened my eyes to the truth earlier ya know?!

She is a speaker for Camp Ironwood. When I went to Calvary Baptist in Yucca, we were affiliated with that Camp where I attended a Seminar. She also came to speak at the church too. You can read about her at
The books I get through Uncle Wally's Bookstore (Camp Ironwood)
