Day 231 Proverbs 21:19 Proverbs 21:19 It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. If you are like me, you do anything to avoid confrontation. Angry people are top on my avoidance list. I would rather be anywhere but where that angry person is. Some people are good at diffusing anger. I’m not one of them. Solomon had a lot to say about angry women. They seemed to top his list of people to avoid. He did after all, have 300 wives and 700 concubines. I’m sure he got quite adept at avoiding those who were contentious and angry. Contentious people itch for a fight. They would rather duke it out, than sit and calmly discuss the situation. Contentious women do not make for a happy home. Husbands tend to stay away as much as possible, and children find other activities to take them out of their mother’s war path. The only answer for a contentious and angry woman is prayer. Everyone around the woman knows change is needed. Talking to her will not make any difference because she has an answer, complaint, about everything, and those complaints about her husband and children will only keep her angry, it won’t cause her to make any changes in her life. She does not see herself as the problem. If you are angry and contentious, what is it that causes your anger? Why do you need to fight all the time? If you are at the point where you are ready to listen to God, examine yourself for the answer to your anger, your need to pick a fight. Your husband and children are not the reason. As you examine yourself, ask yourself some questions. You will need to dig deep into your life to find those answers, but if you’re at the point where you don’t like your life the way it is, you’re tired of the fighting, bickering, nagging, fault-finding, and you’re ready for God to take hold of you and open your eyes to you, be also ready for the clean-up process. I guarantee if you are ready to face the truth about your life, someone has been praying for you. Stop putting the blame on someone else. That someone did not cause the problem. That someone only caused the affect it has on you. Make a list of all the things that trigger your anger and need to fight. Do not put anybody’s name behind the item. When you have your list, ask yourself why those things irritate you enough to cause tension in your home. Then start praying and giving your list to God and ask him to do the clean-up process in your life. It won’t be easy, but once you start, each item on your list will be easier to deal with and when the process is complete, you will be free and happy, and so will everyone in your home. Let’s pray: Father, help me deal with my anger. Show me the areas I need to deal with and begin the clean-up process so I will no longer be angry over things I shouldn’t be angry about. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen. Copyright © 28 April 2017 by Valerie Routhieaux Image courtesy of Pixabay

They say " a soft answer turns away wrath". We should try it and see how it works.
