Aiding Angry Allies

Written by Ruth Marlene Friesen

Continued from page 1

Those who wilt and turn inward usually punish themselves, whether anyone else or not.

Let's spin ourselves three times and skip-to-my- Lou forwards. Even if we understand howrepparttar angry person got angry, is it wise to form a partnership or marriage with such a one? That person needs help, but isn't going to take it from you, and for sure not until she or he wants to look atrepparttar 102053 ugly sore again.

So don't date, don't marry, don't even get close to an angry person unless you are a glutton for pain, or else you haverepparttar 102054 strength to wrestle an angry animal down until it's healed.

What it takes to heal an old wound is;

1. take a good close, curious look at it,

2. confrontrepparttar 102055 person who caused it originally, and expressrepparttar 102056 hurt,repparttar 102057 pain suffered,

3. whetherrepparttar 102058 Cause repents or not,repparttar 102059 woundee must forgive, set aside that event by giving it to God to redeem, and believe that good will now come out of it.

But old habits of quickly lashing out or self- beating will die hard, and if you arerepparttar 102060 friend that is going to stick it out for a woundee's sake, don't expect to coast just yet.

Brace yourself. You'll get scratched and wounded too, but if you are braced and remember to deal with each wound while fresh, you are a strong and noble character, and God called you a Blessed Peacemaker.

May your tribe increase!

*(Proverbs 22:14 NIV).
