Thursday Trench Truth
“It was about our sixth or seventh month of homeschooling and I showed up to the kitchen table
to check my son’s work from the day before and begin our current lesson. But I brought some
things to the lesson that I shouldn’t have: anxiety over my current marital problems – and there
were many – frustration from the school day before, and just an overall crappy attitude as a
result of my past colliding with my present.
“My son sat timidly, waiting and I know that I know he was checking my emotional
temperature, and he was intuitive enough to know, it was definitely climbing.
“As I checked his work from the day before, my temperature rose, and soon my emotions
reached a boiling point, and I literally snapped as I grabbed the glass tabletop and lifted it up
and slammed it down, not once, but twice and I would have gone for a third, but it did
something that I will never forget: it shattered, everywhere!
This is a true story, and as horrid as it sounds, God used that boiling point as a breaking
point to deal with my unresolved anger.
Friends, unresolved anger doesn’t just go away; it must be looked at and dealt with.
