Anger is a very powerful emotion and we must recognize it as such. To claim that we can rid ourselves of it is unrealistic. After all, even Jesus Christ got angry. After making His triumphal entry into Jerusalem with crowds cheering and palm branches waving, Jesus “went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it, saying to them, ‘It is written, “My house is a house of prayer,” but you have made it a “den of thieves” ‘ ” (Luke 19:45-46).
So why is the title of this post “Get Angry”? As I said, anger is a natural and very powerful emotion. What if we turned the tables on anger and used it against the things in our life that are bringing us down. As I started down my P90X journey, I started getting angry at all my bad habits. I got angry when I worked out because I let myself get so out of shape. I got angry that I was ignorant to the food / fuel I was putting in my body. Did I have a clue how much this stuff was hurting me? I got angry at the way I had become emotionally unavailable to my family. So I used that anger to combat my own personal demons. And in turn, I became more at peace with myself. My self-confidence rose. And…I became less angry.
