You are riding down the road on your motor, enjoying the wind, minding your own business, and out of the blue, somebody changes lanes right in front of you, without signaling.
You see him in time to get out of the way, but the hardest thing to do in the whole wide world, is to keep your cool and resist kicking in the side of his car. The reason this is the hardest thing to do, is because you have this voice in your head screaming obscenities at the guy, which are then coming right out of your mouth word for word.
You know he is bigger than you, or at least his car is, but you still have this voice screaming in your head, and it is telling you to teach him a lesson he won’t forget.
We have all heard that voice, it is a voice that comes out when we get angry. It is a voice we know we need to control, and sometimes we do, and sometimes we just get after it.
We have all heard that voice. A voice we would rather not hear. God would like to help us with that voice. God can help with that voice by calming our anger and frustration. All we need to do is ask. All we have to say is “God help me!”, and he will. In that moment He will respond, he will take away the pain, and he will silence the voice.
