Problems with rage
« on: July 17, 2013, 11:28:40 PM »
Please pray for me.

Lately I've had problems with my feelings, especially towards my mother.  I love her, but once in a while she will take out the stress she has about her relationship with her boyfriend on me.  It is very difficult for me, because I can never figure out how I upset her or why she gets so upset at the things she decides to yell at me about.  I know that she is stressed, but even so, I've started to yell back.  I'm not her punching bag, but at the same time she does everything for me and has understandable relationship troubles, and I need to be more understanding and let things go.

This is proving to be a real obstacle in my spiritual life.  Sometimes I find it difficult to pray when I have animosity towards my mother in my heart.

I can definitely relate.

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
