Thursday Trench Truth
Do you feel persistently angry with other family members and/or yourself?
One of our trenchers explains her struggle in this way:
“Rage/anger is a sub-root of my self-centered fear. My rage comes out of feeling powerless and
afraid. It can be a consuming, controlling, and destructive force.
Since my rage is born out of feeling powerless, it stands to reason that my rage is about control,
controlling my situation, controlling people around me because I am afraid. It is addictive and yet leaves
me empty for I am always searching for a release. It works hand in hand with my fear. I can delude
myself into believing that I have the rage under control.
I have finally come to believe in my heart, not just in my head, that only the Lord has control and
I constantly have to accept the situation as it is and surrender to Him. Once my mind enters the ‘spin
cycle’ with either of these roots, it becomes an impossible situation in desperate need of a spiritual
solution: My Higher Power, Jesus Christ.”
It is because of her growth in the digging and un-rooting process that she is able to recognize where her
rage comes from. You can’t stop or desist from doing something if you don’t even recognize that you’re
doing it or why you’re doing it! Join us in a trench near you to learn how to Surrender to Serenity ©
