Fear. I don’t wanna feel the fear. I don’t wanna face the fear so I’ll jump to something that is more comfortable. Anger. Anger. Anger. For example, once I ______________several years ago, one of our, excuse me, one of our twins after like 300 hundred Easter services, or something like that, she became, she became very, very sick. And when I got home Lisa and I were talking and she was there on the coach with us and we were talking, and I said, Lisa, man she’s not breathing right.
Something, something is wrong, something is wrong and she said, I don’t know I just called the doctor and..I said lets just take her to the emergency room and we did. We got there and you know your child’s sick when the emergency room doctor say we need to life flight her to somewhere else, so we did that. Instead of feeling the fear, instead of experiencing that, you know what I did? I jumped over fear to anger towards Lisa. That’s wrong. Sinful. Toxic. Tornadoish. Surely you’ve never done that. I’m just talking to these people right here. (audience laughter) Frustration.
Instead of feeling the frustration, what do we do, rrrrrrrrrr, jump to anger the secondary emotion. I’m frustrated. I have someone that I was frustrated with recently. And this situation happened several months ago and when it happened I was very tempted to call this person on the phone and talk to them. But the Holy Spirit quieted me, calmed me down, and just told me to wait. Not in an audible wait, I just knew I should wait.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
