Week 3- Divorce Recovery- ANGER!

WEEK 3- Divorce Recovery

In Divorce, there is a lot to be angry about!

  1. Betrayal by the one who is closest to you
  2. Hurt by lies
  3. Loss of dreams, plans and possessions
  4. Debt
  5. Loss of Reputation

ANGER IS LIKE KUDZU…IT GROWS FAST AND CHOKES OUT EVERYTHING ELSE!

Anger

  1. Sometimes you should be angry (but do not sin)
  2. When is it appropriate? What is the cause and how can I respond?
  3. It is evaluated by GOD

Unhealthy Anger

  1. Violence (you can’t kill em, even if you want to)
  2. Suppressing it (suck it in until you pop)
  3. Passive-Aggressive Behavior- (let’s act nice but be mean underneath)
  4. Getting Revenge (isn’t that a TV show???)

Healthy Expressions of Anger

  1. Release inappropriate control (your spouse didn’t listen to you when you were married and they won’t listen now)
  2. Avoid high conflict situations
  3. Exercise (burn that energy)
  4. Remember that GOD is our model…remember how kind God has been to you.

GOD’s message to you: “In your anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the Devil a foothold.” Ephesians 4: 26-27
