Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God (James 1:19-20ESV). A snake sheds its outer layer of skin because it is growing. The new skin is more flexible and vibrant. Shedding the snakeskin of anger may put you between a rock and a hard place.

May grace (God's unmerited favor) and spiritual peace [which means peace with God and harmony, unity, and undisturbedness] be yours from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 1:2 Amp). Where there is a way there is a will. Jesus is the way back to God but our will must surrender to find it. Scripture says, “Whosoever will let him come (Rev. 22:17)” happily the invitation for a restored life is for everyone but it can only happen if our will aligns with Jesus’.
