The stress of the holiday season can wreak havoc in a marriage. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger in between tomorrow. Your relationship is worth more than any argument.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, many are familiar with the Bible verse, “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.” (Ephesians 4:26)
Anytime finances are involved, the tension in the relationship is strained. The holiday season can be a bit more trying as the financial hardships are increased due to giving gifts.
Now you don’t have to involve money in order to have an argument. You can be crabby just because you woke up before the alarm. It’s ridiculous how we let something so trivial set us off.
But this is REAL life!
This in between tomorrow is SO vital to the health of your relationship.
If you keep stuffing grumbles and grudges in your daily stockings, all you’re gonna get out is more frustration and more fiddlesticks.
What happens is by allowing anger to overtake our every day, we are giving up the prospect of a better tomorrow. We are holding ourselves hostage punishing not our spouses, but our own hearts.
When you read the Bible verse Ephesians 4:26, it doesn’t say anything about anyone except YOU!
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. ~ Ephesians 4:26
In between tomorrow, it’s about YOU!!!
A marriage takes two, but anger takes only one!
As much as it’s nice to blame your spouse for the marriage’s shortcomings, the anger situation is not about your spouse. The anger is about YOU!
Basically what God is saying….You can’t be in between tomorrow and have anger.
Anger begins to harden the heart!
Have you ever seen a log out in the woods where, over time, it begins to rot away? The decaying is a long process, but it eats at the very core of the log. When the rot has consumed the log, it disintegrates.
That’s exactly what happens when anger takes over your heart.
So don’t let the sun go down while you’re in between tomorrow.
Rise up and love in between tomorrow.
The K.I.S.S. ~ Rise up!
Even when the days are long and the joy is fading, rise up!
Let your heart be glad regardless of your circumstances.
You can choose to fly on the wings of doubt and fear.
You can let your confidence rot away.
You can embrace anger as your best friend.
But where will that get you?
Deeper into the darkness drowning out all possible rays of hope.
Tarnishing smiles gathering the dust of sadness.
A thousand miles of a road well-traveled.
Let your excuses and circumstances be tamed by the light of God, His presence.
“Rise up and shine, for your light has come. The shining greatness of the Lord has risen upon you.” ~ Isaiah 60:1
In between tomorrow is a pause for a better today. It’s an opportunity to grow personally and spiritually.
Don’t let your anger stew in the night. Your marriage is worth all your might. Let the hopes for tomorrow bring forgiveness in the darkness. Your heart will understand what’s to come when you are willing to take a stand.
Anger is not for you in between tomorrow.
