THE ART OF LETTING GO…BE BETTER NOT BITTER

#FoodForThought

NOTE:COPY AND SEND TO TEN PEOPLE(It will change their Lives)

Bitterness starts out small. An offense burrows its way into our hearts. We replay it in our minds, creating deep ruts that will be hard to build back up. We retell our hurts to any available listener… We enlist support, pushing us further into our resentment. We hear the offending person’s name and cringe. We decipher the offense as intentional and our offender as full of spite. We look for other reasons, both real or imagined, to dislike our villain. With each new piece of information, we form another layer of bitterness. When you’ve been hurt, Part of you is broken, and the other part is bitter. Part of you wants to cry, and part of you wants to fight. And you’re left with a decision. Do I get over it or get even? Do I release it or resent it? Resentment is when you allow what’s eating you to eat you up. Revenge is the raging fire that consumes the arsonist. Bitterness is the trap that snares the hunter. And mercy is the choice that can set them all free. YOU ARE BETTER NOT BEING BITTER.

Hebrews 12: 14-15 says…
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

Ephesians 4:31-32 says
Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.

Bitterness towards that annoying Spouse, that frustrating boss, that really paranoid colleague and disgusting inlaws…will cause more trouble for you than the person that really makes you bitter…BEING BITTER WILL CORRUPT EVERY SWEET AREA OF YOUR LIFE; We fool ourselves into thinking no one will know, but anger and resentment have a way of seeping into everything. Resentment is like a floating beach ball we try to submerge in the water. No matter how valiant our efforts, it pops up with all its vitality, splashing everyone around. Forgiving others allows us to see how God has forgiven us. The dynamic of giving grace is the key to understanding grace. For it is when we forgive others that we begin to feel what God feels. Set your enemy—and yourself—free! As you do so today GOD IS INTRODUCING SWEETNESS INTO EVERY BITTER AREA IN YOUR LIFE…His Mercy will provoke Special Favors for you. Receive Grace in Jesus Name.

Mathew 5:7 says…
Jesus said “Blessed are the merciful,” “They shall be shown mercy.”

  1. When we choose to release the prisoner from the closed bars of prison walls, we are soon to find out that the prisoner was just us. Bitterness destroys the best relationships we have with our loved ones.
