RECOGNIZE: Identify Where Anger Appears

Ecclesiastes 7:9 NIV
Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools.

Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,

for anger resides in the lap of fools

Don’t harbor anger! You nurture and grow anger with thoughts you should have given up a long time ago.
You nurture and grow anger with thoughts you should have given up a long time ago.
Philippians 4:8 NIV
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
TRUE = non-deceptive, promise and delivery
NOBLE = serious (honest), dignified
RIGHT = (just), gives what is due. “duty faced & duty done”
2 Timothy 4:5 NIV
But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
PURE = morally uncontaminated, fit to be brought into the presence of God and used in his service.
LOVELY = (attractive), that which calls forth love, not vengeance and punishment - criticism or rebuke. Rather kindness, sympathy, patience. Inspire a feeling of LOVE!
ADMIRABLE = (of good report) / things that are fit for God to hear, high-toned, not false, ugly or impure words.
EXCELLENT = (virtuous), the good qualities in everything, the strengths in individuals’ character,
PRAISEWORTHY = to be uplifted. Neither conceitedly desire nor foolishly despise the praise of others
phil 4:
The Letters to Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians True States of Mind (Philippians 4:8–9)

it is a law of life that, if we think of something often enough, we will come to the stage when we cannot stop thinking about it.
