The death of a spouse, the betrayal of a friend, and the disability of a child are often so painful that we want to blame God. We all have times of anger, disappointment, and frustration. But when we aim that anger at God, we end up feeling empty, frustrated, and lost. Our anger can either destroy us with self-pity, or God can use it to make us joyful. The key is to aim the anger in the right direction. The topics of anger and bitterness are issues that author, Joni Eareckson Tada, can speak to personally: A diving accident in 1967, when she was 17, left her a quadriplegic. She has lived 45 years in a wheelchair and she has experienced her share of ups and downs. "But," she says, "oh, the difference the grace of God has made in my life."
Let Joni tell you her secrets to peace and joy, despite her wheelchair. She has spent decades studying the Word of God. She knows that God does not enjoy seeing your pain and frustration. He has compassion for you and gives you many ways to deal with life so that you can have peace. She has taken her most important insights on turning anger into joy (not bitterness) and encapsulated them here. Whether you or a loved one is suffering, this pamphlet will bring you some help to break free from the strangle hold of anger. 14 pages, full color, glossy plastic coating for durability, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, fits inside most Bibles.

PIKNIKCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Grounded ViewpointSeptember 15, 2013PIKNIKCanadaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleMy first expectation was that this pamphlet might contain some great-sounding spiritual platitudes that might not, in the end, jibe with the actual experience of "life-on-the-ground." I was pleasantly surprised at the transparency of the persons in the examples given, who, as one person expressed it, wished to follow, in anger, a different trajectory than merely that of "pasting on a smile." I found this pamphlet to be genuinely helpful, well-grounded in reality: even more, based in Scripture, and, in particular, the Psalms. I would have no hesitation in giving the pamphlet to a suffering Christian friend, since I do not think that the friend would say, "But they don't understand." We are encouraged, in this pamphlet, to see that God meets us where we are, not at some place, where, fictionally, we are supposed to be. Also, there is a small section at the end dealing with the anger that comes from small, daily irritants. Rose Publishing has provided me with an advanced reader copy.
