Confronting the Disclosures of the Soul - Guilt, Anger, Fear
Hidden deep in our soul are some strong emotions waiting to be exposed. Guilt, anger, and fear are three powerful emotions that have a way of revealing some secrets in our heart. Behind these strong forces are issues that we need to address before they destroy us. For soundness of mind, we must confront guilt. Guilt addresses "discomfort" because it reveals issues of transgression that reside in the heart. For our own sake and the sake of others, we must confront anger. Anger addresses personal rights specifically "our rights" and the infringement upon them. To obtain a sense of security, we must confront fear. Fear addresses our "insecurity" resulting from a lack of control over situations or people involved in our lives. Each of these strong emotions have a powerful impact, we have to face what they are and deal with them in ways not natural to the thinking of man.
