Healing From Bitterness
No one wants to be bitter. Bitterness is un-forgiveness
that festers. As long as we hold onto past hurts we rob
ourselves of joy.
We think that holding on to the hurt we can remind
ourselves and others of the unfairness we’ve
experienced. Sadly, bitterness only helps these feelings
take root in our lives.
Something happened to me a short time ago that was
very hurtful. It undeniably shattered my heart. I didn’t
see it coming, it just occurred. I tried to forgive the
person who hurt me by saying the words “I forgive
you”, but realized later it wasn’t from my heart.
I really struggled with anger whenever I thought
about them. It was only then I realized the power I was
giving away to bitterness. At that very moment I asked
God for deliverance. It is my hope that you can heal,
find deliverance and forgiveness through this book.
