“God, why did you let this happen to me?” The death of a spouse, the betrayal of a friend, and the disability of a child are often so painful that we want to blame God. We all have times of anger, disappointment, and frustration. But when we aim that anger at God, we end up feeling empty, frustrated, and lost. Our anger can either destroy us with self-pity, or God can use it to make us joyful.
The topics of anger and bitterness are issues that author, Joni Eareckson Tada, can speak to personally: A diving accident in 1967, when she was 17, left her a quadriplegic. She has lived 45 years in a wheelchair and has experienced her share of ups and downs. “But,” she says, “oh, the difference the grace of God has made in my life.” The key is to aim the anger in the right direction.
Let Joni tell you her secrets to peace and joy, despite her wheelchair. She has spent decades studying the Word of God. She knows that God does not enjoy seeing your pain and frustration. He has compassion for you and gives you many ways to deal with life so that you can have peace. She has taken her most important insights on turning anger into joy (not bitterness) and encapsulated them into this 14-page pamphlet. Whether you or a loved one is suffering, this pamphlet will bring you some help to break free from the strangle hold of anger.
We can find freedom from the bondage of anger. Joni has been there and she shows the way using biblical principles.
