Recognizing Anger In Grief

CloudLightSunINABILITY or REFUSAL to be comforted can be a sign that the roots of grief have become infected with  anger and unforgiveness.  It is sometimes difficult to recognize anger or unforgiveness because they have many faces.  Anger can SEEM like a responsibility. ‘I must stay angry to protect my family.  I must stay angry to protect myself from this ever happening again.’  Or, ‘I must stay angry to insure the guilty party does not go unpunished!’  Anger can even seem to be a positive force and be used as a form of power or control in chaotic times.  However, the long range repercussions are not good.   James 1:20, “For man’s anger does NOT bring about the righteous life that God desires. (NIV)
