If She’s Stuck in a Rage Rut, Approach the Heart Before the Anger

Have you ever tried to help an injured critter? You patiently approach the animal, free it from harm, and bring it into your arms for warm healing only to be…BITTEN? This can happen with your girl as well. If she’s in a season of knee-jerk retorts and rage-filled door slamming, it might be worth it to check for an injury. Not a broken leg or bruised wrist—more like a nagging pain within her heart. 

The Lord’s care is healing to the core—a desire to “heal her brokenheartedness and bind up her wounds” as in Psalm 147:3. The next time she slams a door in a rage rut, take a deep breath and gently approach her to see if she needs to talk through what’s irritating her at the center.
