Why are so many of us not at peace? Jesus, when he rose from the dead, promised peace. Why then do we not always feel that peace? Why, instead, do we feel a distance from God, incurable and unrelenting? Sometimes, it is simply because we have not dealt with the anger inside us. We have justified it, stuffed it down, swept it under the carpet and pretended like life was normal. We must search out that anger and offer it up to God.
