The truth is...... anger not in its proper form, is destructive!! Until you get to the root of your anger, you will never be free from it. It will be there to haunt you. Believe you me, I still struggle with anger. I find myself at times still dealing with a lot of things from my past that tick me off literally. Seek some good Christian counseling, besides the Great Counselor (God). There is nothing wrong with seeking help to talk things out. It does help. Grant it, it can be very painful, in fact some times extremely painful, but worth it in the end, if you are truly open to getting healed from the inside out!! Also, be transparent with God and tell Him exactly how you feel. He will NOT fall off His throne when He hears what you have to say! Hey, God knows you can be real. After all He made you.

I thank God that I am not where I once was, but am glad where I have come from.
I also try and reflect on what Jesus said, "Be angry, and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your wrath." Ephesians 4:26 Each day we all encounter frustrations in our lives that may bring about anger which may result in things said that we should not have. "But now you must also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth." Colossians 3:8 God knows our hearts He knows our hurts and He knows what it is like to be human.
Patience is not just waiting for something, it is how you are behaving while you are waiting for something. There is a difference!!! A BIG difference. As I stated earlier, I do not always wait so graciously for something. I get aggravated if what I wait for does not arrive when I want it to. That is not what God wants. He wants us to depend on Him totally while we wait. Yup, very hard!!! Extremely hard, for me at least, and I am sure for some of you. But, again, it is something that I am working on daily with God.
I found that meditating on the Word of God regarding patience helps, so I would like to share with you some of the scripture verses that I use.
Pray for God to give you patience. Do not become impatient if you find the results not happening right away, believe me I am still working on it and most probably will be until my dying day. But I am getting better. That is all God can ask of us is that we do our best!
How awesome that the Lord Jesus waits patiently for the last sinner to repent.
That verse is my favorite in regards to patience.
Still we should not be quick to judge the conduct of the person who has disappointed us. You say "that is hard." Yes it is hard. But, before you make a decision, prayerfully seek God's will. Trust God's guidance and what He says may not be to your liking, still trust Him. He is always right! Respond in the manner that is best for the other person without accusation, embarrassment to the other person, and do not seek revenge. Look for God's higher purpose in your life. Ask God, "What are you teaching me?" "What are you doing in my life?" Make decisions based on the Holy Spirit's guidance, not on your friends opinion. Do exactly what God tells you to do. Anticipate a blessing from God in your disappointments. God will always honor your proper response to disappointment. Always remember throughout your life there will be many disappointments. Can't run from that! It is just a matter how you handle them!
"Hello!" Being that I have a major tendency at this moment with a lack of patience in my life, my mouth is no exception. Christianity does not exclude one from the temptations of life. This area has become a real stubling block for me. I continue to work on it daily. Some days I am more successful than others.
"Let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity) and quarreling (brawling, clamor, contention) and slander (evil-speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from you, with all malice (spite, ill will, or baseness of any kind.)" Ephesians 4:31
Which of the above, poses the biggest problem for you?
In my own case, I would have to say I still struggle with anger when injustice is done which then leads me to judging and gossiping.
In the book of James, there is also a good word, "Understand this, my beloved brethren. Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to take offense and to get angry." James 1:19
Of these, the most important and often the hardest is being slow to speak. Once the venom of our tongue begins to spew, other things spew along with it.
Hey, we are human, we do get upset. Try this, when you feel you are about to say something that you know you may regret. Take a deep breath, shut your mouth for a minute (60 seconds), get control of yourself and then go on with life. All along praying to the Lord to help you through this problem area.
If the Lord can do miracles, He can do miracles for us. You and I do not have to struggle with these problem areas of ours. We have the ability in the Holy Spirit to be adjustable and adaptable. "Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. Romans 12:16
