Do you think God could heal your angry heart? He asks the same question of you that he asked of the invalid in John 5:6, “Do you want to be healed?” Not everyone does. Anger may be part of your identity.
T.D. Terry’s stressful job stirred in him daily bouts of anger. A tree near his driveway had been tall. Then lost a few limbs. After some time it was nothing more than a stump. T.D. explained, “I took my anger out on the tree. I took an ax to it. I tore the limbs. I didn’t want to come home mad, so I left my anger at the tree.”
