feels like i haven't been on here for ages, i've missed it quite alot. Is that sad?
anyway, the blog today is about bubbles in a bottle. Ever heard of anger being referred to a bottle of fizzy being shaken up and finally coming to a point that when someone begins to release the anger, it all comes out. Anger is just like this, it builds up and builds up despite the fact we may believe we've let it go and moved on but over a lifetime it can stir within us till we break.
over the past few months, Anger is just one of the many emotions I've felt and I've learnt that the best way to deal with anger is to release it when it comes and deal with it. In particular, we tend to feel anger towards other people who have betrayed us or hurt us in some way. God is a forgiving God.
One thing i've learnt about anger towards other people is to recognise that it can only be released through forgiveness, if we never learnt to forgive our hearts would become cold and this would affect our other relationships in the future. Forgiving is hard but it's a release of emotions that stop us damaging ourselves in the future.
As Jesus forgives us for the wrong things we do daily, we should also forgive others. This is what Jesus calls us to do in order for us to love.'Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us'
"Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail."
"Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love."
