Lou Priolo writes that it is helpful to keep an anger journal. He lists 4 questions we should answer in our journals.
1. What happened that provoked me to anger?
2. What did I say and or do when I became angry?
3. What does the Bible say about what I said and or did when I became angry?
4. What should I have done/said when I became angry?
I originally bought this book because I have a child who struggles with anger. Now, I see that I do too and need to work on my own problem first before helping my child to deal with their own sin. I am going to start keeping my own anger journal. Will you who struggle with this same sin join me in taking this sin seriously and putting it to death? One more helpful thing to do is to go to Amazon and purchase this book if you have this same struggle or you have a child who struggles with this same sin. The sad thing to say is that in life I have learned that many have had their own children struggle with this same sin and they never knew how to deal with it. Now, while they are still young is the time to take things seriously and teach them how to deal with the sins for which they are struggling so that when they are adults they will be fully equipped in how to put to death certain besetting sins. I only wish that I had known these things before I became a mom! By the grace of God, He has taught me and I am thankful for God's grace in my life!
