The Spirit of Anger

The Bible says, in Ephesians 4:26, "Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath." Anger can be a good thing when it is against that which is evil and ungodly. God has righteous indignation. But an angry attitude is one that looses its cool whenever it doesn't get its way. I am ashamed to say that I know this from experience. Please pray for me when you think on this subject. Anger will take joy. Don't let it into your life.
Please enjoy...

The Spirit of Anger

Anger causes me to lose control;
to lose faith;
to lose reason.
Anger causes me to think without desire;
to think without hope;
to think without rational;
Anger causes me to decide apart from God;
to decide apart from freedom;
to decide apart from righteousness.
Anger cannot force me,
though in its wake, anger is the excuse,
though in the last draw, anger has its draining effect.
Anger is controlling toward feeling,
that expels that which is holy,
which takes the mind from generous love,
and threatens the soul with backsliding.
Anger is a sin, and until seen as such,
anger will still cause the flesh
to do that which the soul has denied for so long.
Anger has pride at heart,
and good at stake.
Anger is pathetic when it is not against sin;
when it is not against wrong;
when it is not against unrighteousness.
Anger needs only the Spirit to be removed,
or it will remove the Spirit;
or it will take it all.
Someone must die.
