Whether it’s complaining about queue-hogging at the supermarket or sounding off about someone behind their back, the says this, ‘Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back’ (Proverbs 29:11 NLT).  

It’s okay to share your feelings with those you . But think wisely about whom you tell and what you say because you don’t want your words to bite back. For times when you feel like you’ about to explode, here’s a tip for you: get rid of some excess adrenaline by getting active physically rather than vocally. Don’t get physical with people. 

God is not an advocate of kicking butt! He would prefer you kicked a football around or take a long run. It helps clear your head to think rationally and handle things in a way you won’t regret afterwards. If you’re anger-prone, challenge yourself to learn a couple of scriptures to grab from your mind when you need it most. Start with Proverbs 14:17. 

‘Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back’ (Proverbs 29:11 NLT).  

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, I’m sorry that anger rises in my heart. Father, at times I feel so much pressure. I feel as though I’m on a knife’s edge, Sometimes I resent colleagues, family and friends and I fall into anger. I know you understand, and You see all I am, the good and the bad. Please let Your flood my angry moments. God me to pray, to look to you, to take a step back and calm down. Help me to breathe deeply, to re-fuel, to rest and reset. Please step in when I feel anger surging again and remind me of these things. I trust in you. God Amen.
