Overcoming anger 

Anger can rule your life, causing you to say and do things that you normally would never do, and which bring deep regret later. Listen to what the psalmist said about overcoming anger, 

“Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still. Selah Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD” (Psalms 4:4-5).

Yes, there is a time and a place for anger, which is why the psalmist said to be angry, but do not sin in the process. The way to accomplish that is to meditate while lying down to sleep, and be still, concentrating upon the law of the Lord, filling your heart with His thoughts rather than your thoughts. Then offer the sacrifices of righteousness, filling your life with doing good things, and on top of those things put your trust in the Lord, knowing that He shall handle the problem that created your anger.
