Bitterness Is

Bitterness Is
“Bitterness is its own prison.” – Max Lucado, He Still Moves Stones

A Thought
Feeling bitter, being angry, holding a grudge, all negative feelings that do nothing for us except eat away at us and raise our stress levels.  But when you forgive it changes you, changes your feelings. Rather than letting something build up inside of you which only makes things worse, forgive and move on. One of the greatest examples in history is Jesus, on the cross dying hs said: “Father, forgive them , for they do not know what they do.


A Prayer
Dear Father

Thank you for this day and the ability to express our emotions.  Please let me change negative emotions into positive ones by forgiving those who do me harm or hurt me.  Let me always remember Ephesians 4:32:  “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

Let me remember my home in eternity is far more important than my home in this world.  Let me forgive as it is stated in Mark 11:25:  “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

In Jesus name we pray.
