Spring Cleaning Series – Throwing Away Bitterness!
By: Jamaya Battle
Did you know that unforgiveness, bitterness, and resentment block the flow of God’s blessings in your life? Holding on to the hurts of your past can poison your present and limit your future. When you let go of those emotional wounds, you open the door to the life of victory that God has planned. The enemy will try to use your past to influence your actions and responses. He will try to paralyze you with fear and shame. But when you choose to forgive those who have wronged you and release your past to your Heavenly Father’s loving care, you can walk in freedom. You can trade your sorrow for His joy. You can trade your your shame for His peace. You can trade your insecurities for His love and victory! You are not defined by your past. You are defined by God’s Word and His plan for you life. God sees you as an overcomer! God sees you as a champion in life! Throw bitterness in the trash! Forgive past hurts! (Ephesians 4:31) One of the main keys to overcoming disappointments in life is learning to let go of the past. The past was yesterday!
