It’s easier to be angry. Anger feels like a shield.
But anger is not what God desires for us. It’s not a shield, but a prison. It holds not power, but poison.
Nobody enjoys feeling hurt, rejected, abandoned and, so, we often choose anger as our companion because we fear grief.
It’s okay to feel the hurt for a moment. Hurt seems to ebb and flow and somehow know when to move on for a time. It sometimes fades into the shadows, gives you some space, lags behind just a little.
Unlike anger who is always front and center, making its presence known and attempting to dictate every step of the journey.
I’ve decided grief is a better companion than anger. Grief guides me to Jesus.
“Come to me, all ye heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
