How to Calm Your Spirit When You Feel Like You’re Losing Control
Remember in the Bible when King Saul had problems with rage? David was brought in to play music for him, and it calmed his spirit. Music (the right kind of music anyway) will have a calming effect on your spirit too when you are feeling like you may lose control of your temper.
Play some soothing hymns in your home, and you will be surprised at how much calmer you feel. Meditating on the words of songs that are scripturally based will help you walk in the Spirit, and the music itself will have a calming effect on your nerves.
One of my very favorite things to listen to right now, and I recommend that they be in every household, are these Scripture Meditations recordings. There are a couple different volumes, but this one is my personal favorite when it comes to the Scriptures that are included. They are just what I need when I am tempted to be angry. (I don't make anything if you order these; I just highly recommend them.)
Whatever you choose to listen to, make it a habit to keep Godly Christian music playing in your home.
Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Ephesians 5:19 “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”
