0 Comment

Even as Christian wives, we may struggle with anger in our marriage.  There may be seasons where the frustration may become too much for your to carry.  But, God gives us clear instructions regarding how to address our anger.    I want to share foundational truths regarding how to deal with anger in marriage.

Watch this video for details.

Make a decision regarding if you are going to do this God’s way or your way. 

You can’t be on the fence about this.  Every victory starts with a decision to pursue victory.  If you want to fully release anger, it starts with an intentional decision that you will no longer carry the weight of anger.

Confront your spouse

This is not the time to be passive.  Do not allow society to tell you that you’re being too confrontational.  The word of God tells us to address concerns we have with our spouse immediately.  Do not allow it to fester.

Luke 17:3  says “If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.” The word rebuke means to “put a weight upon.” You’re to your concerns in your husband’s lap.  Pray that he accepts responsibility for what was done and sincerely apologizes for his actions.  This makes it easy for you to freely forgive him. 

Learn to speak the truth in love!   

“A gentle answer turns away anger, but a harsh word stirs up wrath” (Proverbs 15:1). Resist the urge to pop off or be demanding.  Ask the holy spirit to equip you with the words to say and the tone that creates an atmosphere for healing.  

Release the pain.    

As a woman of God, you must find a way to intentionally release the anger to God.  Allow God to do what only he can do.  Holding on to anger will never fix your problem.  Only God can!  Ephesians 4:26 says  Be angry and do not sin.   Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.  The only way to experience the peace of God during tough seasons of marriage is to release the anger to God.  

Know that vengeance is the Lord’s. 

It is not time for you to pursue harming your husband.  Adding to the strife is honoring God.   Romans 12: 17-21 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.   If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.  Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[d] says the Lord.  On the contrary:  “If your enemy is hungry, feed him,    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

If we are going to allow our life to properly represent God, we must put our big girl heels on and walk in righteousness.  Even when it hurts.  Trust that God is fully aware of your situation and is working it out on your behalf.   Don’t be dismayed by how things look right now.  Victory, healing, and restoration are yours!

Stay Blessed Sis!
