Why getting angry could mean something else…


Anger is called a “secondary emotion” because it basically replaces the feelings we are actually trying to cover up.

There was a time when I was very angry. Angry at myself, angry at people in my World and even angry at the whole World…this led to depression and eventually thoughts of hopelessness, that everyone was better off without me.

Then I found God. 

Some of my loved ones thought it was a cliche but after 11 years, no one can deny the impact and change in my life.

When you start to delve into WHY you get angry…it can make you feel vulnerable and most certainly emotional but it was the best thing that I have ever done. 

One of my favourite things to talk about now is “expectations”. Ones that you have of others and those that others have of you. 

The truth is that expectations are met with pain because no one will ever meet them – regardless of who they are. We always have grand ideas of what the “ideal” should be in our lives – the truth is…the World is broken and therefore the ONLY one we should look to – is God.

He is the unmovable, unchanging, all powerful, all-seeing, all-knowing and eternal God. He always was and always will be, a loving Father, that created you for far more than this World can imagine. There is not one person that God created, that He does not love and want to have a relationship with and so, if you are living in a hopeless situation; one where anger drives you; that you feel the World owes you because of “stuff” that has happened – Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life – to being free of all that hurt and pain.

I am a walking testament to His goodness and grace.

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
