Hello, my name is Kurt and I am an ANGERHOLIC. I’m 49 years old and for the first time in my life I’d like to openly admit, I’m an ANGERHOLIC.
That is to say, I’ve chosen to be angry.
Why? Several reasons.
Let me start with one: My anger gives me focus and clarity. In junior high I was diagnosed with dyslexia. I suffered the ridicule of other kids at school for it and began fighting the label since then. Through my dyslexia and I learned long ago that when I get mad or angry I can begin to think more clearly.
Therefore, I’ve been self medicating for years, hiding behind the FEAR that if I’m not angry, I’ll forget things, mess them up or even worse.
This is just ONE of the reasons I choose to sin in my anger. It’s an area that as a man I am showing others (bride, family and friends) where I don’t trust God to do His work – and despite – my faith in Him – my anger invalidates my witness all the way around.
So hold me accountable. Call me out. For if you don’t I could get worse (Hebrews 3:13).
How about you? Why not think about ONE key sins in your life and write it out before the second half of the word HOLIC.
Maybe it’s lust, jealousy, gossip,etc. You fill in the blank.
Take a pic and post it in my comments. Then as The Body of Christ we can pray and lift one another up!
God loves you and so do I.
