Victory over Anger

For over 30 years I struggled with people calling me a liar when I knew I was telling the truth.

My way of dealing with the problem was to yell at the person calling me a liar and me calling them a liar.

The anger would rise up inside of me every time someone called me a liar and I created a horrible scene every time.

I don’t know what the root cause of the problem was.  I just acted out every time I felt I was being attacked.

At class the pastor showed a DVD containing a situation similar to mine. God then took me back to the memory to show me the root cause of my problem and why I reacted the way I did when someone called me a liar. The Lord showed me in a memory an incident at Christmas when I was in my 20’s where my drunk father was telling one lie after another to my mother’s friend. I started calling my dad a liar and he started yelling and screaming at me that I was a liar. He spoke the truth to me that I needed. Now it doesn’t even effect me at all when someone calls me a liar.
