Bitter or Better?

Bitter Or Better?
Each heart knows its own bitterness, and no one else can share its joy.
"Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it. Bitterness paralyzes life; love empowers it. Bitterness sours life; love sweetens it. Bitterness sickens life; love heals it. Bitterness blinds life; love anoints its eyes. " -Harry Emerson Fosdick
Prayer for the day:
Lord, thank you for your grace that makes it possible for a believer to be free from all bitterness and resentment. In Your Word you show how the heart knows its own bitterness resulting in loneliness and joylessness. Help us Lord, to uproot any bitter seeds that the devil desires to cultivate in our lives. Guard us with the sweetness of your Spirit. We choose to focus all our energies on forgetting the past and work toward kindness, being tender-hearted and forgiving for Christ's sake. We thank you and bless you in Jesus' name. Amen.
