I blew my stack last night — the simmering volcano erupted — Psalms 121

I really don’t want to even type out my situation — but it involves a woman who got her hooks into my husband — we are now divorced I have not been able to let go of the anger and rage I feel or the bitterness and resentment. He denies everything even though I witness his phone momentarily lighting up with her blowing him kisses as I am trying to help him in his weakened physical state prepare for a colonoscopy — he is 71, she is a woman of 38 with 4 children still at home. We had been married 41 years when this began — 7 years ago.
I have an apartment in our home — I didn’t want to come back here after living away for 3 and a half years but the doors closed for me where I was and I had to return.
God has me in the midst of this mess for a reason — and I am calling the good out of the bad.
Thank you God for the fruit of the spirit — Self Control — thank you for taking from me the anger, rage, bitterness and resentment.
This constantly simmers under the surface of my heart and erupts when the pressure builds. Thank you God, I yield.gillman3Prayers: 8Requests: 3

Father, be with Anne in this situation. Give her your peace, which passes all understanding. And I pray that her husband will come to know you and seek your forgiveness. In the name of Jesus I pray.dlponder2005Prayers: 221Requests: 27

Thank You Father for Your Mercy, today. Thank You for my sister in Christ, Anne, whom I LOVE through You, connected here, in the body of Christ, by Your act, and You said, “It is finished.” Father Thank You that I am Lifting her Up to You by Faith, doing the act in which You have already spoken, “Love one another,” as the Living Water You are, “flowing out like a river,” right now. Thank You, Father, that we are drinking the Living Water, overflowing, today. Thank You, Father, that my sister, Anne, whom I choose to stand with fully armored, together, chooses to be at peace and still, knowing You are in control every moment she asks You to be in with her. Thank You Father that Anne chooses to put You on the Thrown, not the circumstances. Father, The Most High God, Thank You, that Anne chooses to put You, “The Light” of this day You have made for her, in First Place, rather than the darkness of the past that only she chooses to bring into this day. Father Thank You that Anne focuses on what is Good, today, choosing to give every circumstance of the past to You and chooses to focus on You, moving forward today on the step in front of her, that You have prepared for her, through Your Son, The light, The Way, the Living Word, Alive, inside her, right now. (“God has me in the midst of this mess for a reason — and I am calling the good out of the bad.
Thank you God for the fruit of the spirit — Self Control — thank you for taking from me the anger, rage, bitterness, and resentment.

Thank you, God, I yield.”) Thank You, Father, that I can share this information, speaking of the Living Word of God, here, right now, at the right place and the right time, according to Your Perfect Will, not my will.
“God not only commands us to confess our sins, but also promises to forgive us in the future and, in a real sense, hinges our forgiveness on whether we forgive others after we have presumably been justified. (Matt. 6:14; 18:15–35; 1 John 1:9; James 5:15)” Father Thank You for Your Faith, Today. Thank You Father that Anne is a Victor, and chooses The Truth, today, already Living inside of her, and that she is not a Victim. In the name of Jesus Christ, The Savior, of Anne, and every one of His children, the children of the Most High God.pooklamigaPrayers: 60Requests: 0

Lord God – please be with Anne and bring peace to her heart. Let her know your love that will never fail her nor abandon her. Give her assurance in her faith and grow joy where anger has grown. Thank you for Anne’s trust and faith! Amen.gsimoninPrayers: 577Requests: 7

Sister Anne – I know full well the volcano eruption cycle since that was my “style” of dealing with my own anger and I can tell you this: it is ineffective. And I also understand that you have all these strong emotions within: anger, rage, bitterness & resentment.
In addition to praying and talking it out, the only way I got all that mess out of my body was to do something physically demanding. For me, one choice was to go into my garden, take out my hoe and whack the heck out of anything and everything until all those strong feelings came out. For me, it took well over an hour and I killed some of my plants, but I knew I had to get that poison out of my body and I really didn’t want to be that violently physical with my teenager.
My next step was to teach myself how to vent my anger, frustration, disappointments in little bits, so the volcano had no opportunity to erupt again. I literally went to the library and checked out books on Anger Management, and I took an Anger Management class, twice. The first time I was mad that I had to be there and didn’t absorb much. The second time, I learned some things.
I had to become more honest in the day to day frustrations, rather than always looking agreeable, smiling and saying ‘Yes’ when I really thought was, ‘Not on your life!’. I also had to learn to stop accepting other people’s consequences on myself. Thank God for a Christian counselor who, over time, helped me gain a healthier perspective, learned to set boundaries, and say, ‘No’ when I had to.
I’m very sorry for this mess you are dealing with, so let’s do the best thing and pray:
Father, God, we bring Anne to You today and ask for Your calming peace over her. Give her some of Your wisdom so that she will clearly see what is her next right step. Help her seek out professional help to sort through all this so that honesty and peace can reign in her family once again. Cover her Lord with Your Presence, cover her with Your Righteousness, cover her with Your Holiness, Lord Jesus, cover her.
