Facing the Fury Within

From SacredGateway this morning (cf. Luke 9:51-56, when Jesus’ disciples told the Lord to command fire down to burn the unwelcoming Samaritans),

“When we calm down in prayer, similar furies and indignations can rock us. As we stop moving, and quiet our bodies, resentments can bubble to the surface of our mind. Let them bubble and burst. It will not take us long to see that anger, if we indulge it, becomes a burden on us, not on those who offend us. As long as we want revenge and without forgiveness, we are wasting adrenalin, and in one part of our mind we are holding God at bay.”
