Here’s that question:

What will be your response when faced with mommy anger guilt?

Mommy Anger Guilt Requires a Response

We do need to listen to God’s conviction regarding our actions (He doesn’t want us to sin in our anger and his conviction is meant to correct our behavior). Listening to God’s spirit of conviction is an important aspect of knowing how to follow God. Please hear me on this point!

When those changes are not made (or when we become impatient with our process to change), it’s very easy for our emotions to fester into self-condemnation.

That’s why when we feel conviction we need to be quick to respond. The first lesson God teaches us as children is to trust and obey because if we can make this a habit, we can short-circuit future pain and problems that stem from not listening to God.

But condemnation? That, my friend, we need to kick to the curb because it’s not helpful or productive. It breeds self-doubt and destroys confidence.

Often there’s not a mysterious force that brings on the condemnation (although the Bible does speak of a very-real enemy that wants to hurt and destroy God’s children). I don’t want to underestimate the enemy’s desire to hurt us in this manner; however, I also don’t want to give Him credit for things that He may not be doing. 

The bottom line is that WE are often the source of our own condemnation. 

We all have baggage from our past and false ideas about ourselves that we must continually combat. All of these ideas are continually swirling around in our head and influencing how we process every aspect of our life.

They are our internal filter, and they can absolutely trigger condemnation when processing mommy anger.

Will You Tear Yourself Down Today or Build Yourself Up?

One of the most powerful (and convicting) scriptures for me is this one from Proverbs 14:1:

“A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.”

We have a choice everyday as to how we will deal with the situations we’re given. We can make a choice to learn from destructive behaviors (like mommy anger).

Option 1: We can let mommy anger change us through a spirit of conviction, and we can choose to stop condemnation in it’s tracks and reframe it in the name of truth; or…

Option 2: We can ignore healthy conviction and choose to be dragged down the spiral of condemnation, which will lead to despair and more pain.

What will you do with the mommy anger guilt you’re feeling? Will you listen to God’s promptings in your heart to change? Or will you choose to let unresolved conviction sour into condemning thoughts?

Be sure to download the printable to help you through these emotions and to help you step onto the right path the next time mommy anger guilt strikes.
