Hebrews 12: 14-15, “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 be defiled. ……………………..Make sure that the only things that you let take root in your heart are good things, “Phillipians 4:8 tells us what some of those things are, for example you can think on; whatever is pure,whatever is true, whatever is noble,whatever is right, whatever is loving, whatever is admirable–and if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. “Before you’re able to take on the habit of practicing this great advice, it will be a bit tricky, because, as we read in “Romans 7:19 , there is nothing good that dwells ( in our flesh ), so for the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I desire not to do, that I practice. “But remember we that are born again” no longer should be walking in the flesh, but according to the Holy Spirit. So now when tempted to succumb to acting out thoughts of retaliation by selfish, hateful, malicious, resentful plots; don’t waste your time, after all you’re better than that bitterness that you’re feeling . And you deserve better for yourself, remember bitterness will smother you like a giant serpent, and slowly strangled the very life out of you, LET IT GO ! MOVE ON ! And immediately flood your mind with good thoughts, it’s a little hard at first but, if you really want to claim it, the Holy Spirit of God will team up with you, don’t let bitterness kill you, you are bigger and better than that, Amen, Praise God, I love you in Christ Jesus.
